Which contemporary releases are you the most excited for this month? I'm hoping to get to Inferno and The Distance from A to Z among a couple of others! :)


  1. I also want to get The Distance from A to Z, but I haven't heard of Inferno yet. I gotta check that one out. I also really want to read Bookishly Ever After and The Heir and the Spare. I've already read Thicker Than Water, and I really loved it! :)

    Nautical-Themed Year End Review

    1. I just finished The Distance from A to Z and it was so good! It's such a sweet story :) Inferno is the sequel to Vendetta, which is an amazing read. (It has some Mafia elements and is slightly reminiscent of The Vampire Diaries romance-wise)

      That's awesome to know about Thicker Than Water. I wasn't planning to read it, but I'm definitely planning to check it out now! :)
