Welcome back to KPOP Music Mondays, a weekly feature on the blog where I highlight a recent release and share my thoughts! This week is a fan favorite; one of the biggest girl groups in Korea and on the global scale. It is none other than Red Velvet, and they are back with the sequel EP to their ReVe Fesitval Day 1, Day 2!! I was so excited back in the first half of the year when it was announced that we would be getting a Red Velvet trilogy! The first the group has ever put out (correct me if I’m wrong).
Welcome back to another exciting week of book releases! Sometimes I feel like Tuesday’s are even more exciting than Fridays! (Shhhh… don’t tell my boss that or they’ll expect me to come into work with a smile on my face).
I have another exciting 7 book release this week among the many many releases. So without further ado, let’s get into it!
When She Reigns by Jodi MeadowsThe final installment in a series that features strong empowring characters and dragons!
Frankly in Love by David YoonI’m really excited to see what David has in store for us as a writer. I wonder if his writing style is similar or different that his wife’s!
How’s it been going? As you can tell I am back… again. This past year has been a whirlwind and I found it hard to keep up with my reading and the blog. But as of recently, I have been sparked with some new creative juices and felt like it’s time to make a come back to the reading community. It probably won’t be at the capacity that I used to (I used to read A LOT), but I’m hoping to keep this going since I love it so much.
So let’s start out fresh this month with a new TBR that I will most likely not stick to, but it’s always fun to create lists, am I right?
Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim
Rise by Ellen Goodlett
Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa
Ziggy, Stardust and Me by James Brandon
The Importance of Being Wilde at Heart by R. Zamora Linmark
These Divided Shores by Sara Raasch
This seems like the month of sequels! I have this habit of starting a series and when the next book finally comes out… I just don’t read them. I know it’s so sad because the first books are usually so good. But to right those wrongs, I have 3 sequels, Rise, Soul of the Sword, and These Divided Shores, to books I have read last year.
I also included the first book in a new fantasy, Spin the Dawn, with one of the most absolutely beautiful covers. The synopsis grabbed my interest even more!
And lastly, I have included 2 LGBTQ+ contemporaries as I want to read more books that I can relate to being part of the queer community, Ziggy, Stardust and Me and The Importance of Being Wilde at Heart. The synopsis’ sound very intriguing to me and I can’t wait to dive in!
