Not gonna lie I never really look into what books are coming out for the whole year because I get too distracted and I have wayyyy too many books already to read. But this year I have so many that I’ve known about and am hyped about and I NEED THEM. I did manage to get some ARCs for some of these so the ones that I’ve gotten to read, I’ll include some thoughts!
