I adored Nina Moreno’s debut, Don’t Date Rosa Santos. I’ll be posting my review in the first week of May, but it’s not much of a spoiler to tell you to expect five stars.
Rosa Santos is cursed by the sea-at least, that’s what they say. Dating her is bad news, especially if you’re a boy with a boat.
But Rosa feels more caught than cursed. Caught between cultures and choices. Between her abuela, a beloved healer and pillar of their community, and her mother, an artist who crashes in and out of her life like a hurricane. Between Port Coral, the quirky South Florida town they call home, and Cuba, the island her abuela refuses to talk about.
As her college decision looms, Rosa collides-literally-with Alex Aquino, the mysterious boy with tattoos of the ocean whose family owns the marina. With her heart, her family, and her future on the line, can Rosa break a curse and find her place beyond the horizon?
~on my TBR~
I’m almost sick of hearing about Red, White Royal Blue—almost. I’m still plenty excited for Casey McQuinston’s romatic comedy, which combines several of my interests: British royalty, US politics, and adorableness.
I’m also looking forward to Maya Motayne’s Nocturna, the start of a new trilogy, and Nadine Brandes’ fantasy twist on Anastasia in Romanov.
Finally, I have to include Broken Throne, a collection of novellas set in the world of Red Queen. I loved Victoria Aveyard’s RQ series and want to see it through, even though I don’t usually love spin-off novellas.
~on my radar~
A few releases aren’t on my TBR (yet?) but are still on my radar, either because of early buzz or familiarity with the author.
