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 Bluealmost. 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.


What’s on your May wishlist?
Any early favorites?
