Four books I’m watching that hit shelves today:
~books I’ve read~
Love From A to Z
S. K. Ali
(My ARC Review – Four Stars)
After a slow, worrying start, this became a captivating, moving read.
Centering on two earnest, lovable Muslim teens having very different reactions to painful situations, Love From A to Z is a thoughtful, compassionate love story that celebrates faith, serendipity, and other marvels. I loved the books nuanced portrayal of the different ways people react to loss, injustice, and other difficult realities, all though a beautiful, chaste love story.

Hot Dog Girl
This looks adorable and quirky and I’m pumped.
Oh, well. I’ll read the book anyway, but I must do so knowing magic is dead.
Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak
I haven’t seen much activity with this one; it doesn’t seem likely to be a big release. I can’t pass it by, though. From the synopsis, the book sounds like it’s going to touch on some of the elements that made the summer after senior year a time of my life I think about a lot. I’m automatically interested in any story of a couple “scheduling” the end of a relationship for right before college.
