A monthly meme to keep up with the latest publications, featuring at least two advance copy reviews to look forward to reading.
Last month I began my summer reading plans, which included cutting back on ARCs. July’s ARC requests were quite minimal, and so this is all I have on my list! It feels so liberating.
Model Misfit by Holly Smale
(HarperTeen, July 21)
Harriet knows that modelling won’t transform you. She knows that being as uniquely odd as a polar bear isn’t necessarily a bad thing (even in a rainforest). And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this. What Harriet doesn’t know is where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives.
Modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get as far away from home as possible. But nothing can prepare Harriet for the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother’s ‘chaperoning’. Or seeing gorgeous Nick everywhere she goes. Because, this time, Harriet knows what a broken heart feels like.
YES! The sequel to the hilarious Geek Girl. Gimme gimme gimme!
Some other books I’m excited about and hope to read soon: Rebel Mechanics by Shawna Swendson (July 14) and The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth (July 7).
What books are you looking forward to in July?
