Thanks for Reading ♥

Favorites | June 2021

Another month is almost over and it’s time to look back at it and see what did i enjoy the most!

TV SHOWS

Superman and Lois' tendrá una segunda temporada - Enterate24.com

As i’ve been saying since the show began, i’m really loving it. I’m really enjoying the dinamics of the show, and i love the storyline the children have, like Jordan is my boy. I’m not sure if the season ended or what, but i’m totally up for a second season this very moment.

TV Review: "Love, Victor" Season 2 Deals With the Aftermath of Victor  Coming Out to His Parents - LaughingPlace.com

I wasn’t too sure about this show with the first season but after this second season, i gotta admit i totally like it and i was left really 🤯, i don’t know how they manage these amazing cliffhangers but they did in the first season and now they did it again. And like, OMG, i need the nest season NOW. Who did Victor choose?!

Tom Hiddleston in Loki

Now, i don’t know what i did right but Disney keeps making tv shows about my favorite characters in the marvel universe, first Wanda, then Bucky, and now Loki. I only started watching this show but if it goes as the other two went this will be great. Also, i wonder if it will be a mini-series or if it will, at last, have more than one little season because i could watch Tom Hiddleston for days and days.

MOVIES

I didn’t watch any movies this month tbh, i prefered tv series and books, and obviously a ton of music. I mean, i think i watched Spiral this month but it was BAD.

BOOKS

If This Gets Out

Awesome book, i read an eArc provided by netgalley, the book will come out on December. I totally recommend it. I won’t talk about it much here, but you can read my review: If This Gets Out by Sophie Gonzales and Cale Dietrich

Thanks a Lot, Universe

Another great book, this time a middle grade book i totally recommend to young readers about how difficult life can be when you are 13. Speaks to readers on an eye level, you can read my review here: Thanks A Lot, Universe by Chad Lucas.

MUSIC

I mostly listened to Rammstein this month, which could explain the headache at the end of it (i’m kidding). I love their music and i have been watching many of their lives, as i ugly cried since i won’t be able to go to any of their shows next year. Ugh, it’s so so close, but there are so many people i can’t, it would make me really anxious and it might end ugly for everyone.

Rammstein celebrará los 25 años de 'Herzeleid' con una nueva versión Summa Inferno | Metal + Rock & Alternative Music

Anyway, those were my favorites of the month.

What were your favorites this month?! Leave your comment down below!

June’s Most Anticipated Books!

Hey there, readers! Another month is here, which means more books are coming our way! YAY! I’m so excited to share this post every month! Here are some of the amazing books coming out this June! I hope you find some great new additions to your never-ending TBR!

Better Together

Release Date: June 1st, 2021

Freaky Friday meets The Parent Trap in this sparkling and heartfelt story about sisters, second chances, finding romance, and finding yourself.

Jamie’s an aspiring standup comic in Los Angeles with a growing case of stage anxiety.

Siri’s a stunning ballerina from New Jersey nursing a career-changing injury.

They’ve both signed up for the same session at an off the grid Re-Discover Yourself Retreat in Colorado. When they run into each other, their worlds turn upside down.

Jamie and Siri are sisters, torn apart at a young age by their parent’s volatile divorce. They’ve grown up living completely separate lives: Jamie with their Dad and Siri with their Mom. Now, reunited after over a decade apart, they hatch a plot to switch places. It’s time they get to know and confront each of their estranged parents.

With an accidental assist from some fortuitous magic, Jamie arrives in New Jersey, looking to all the world like Siri, and Siri steps off her flight sporting a Jamie glamour.

The sisters unexpectedly find themselves stuck living in each other’s shoes. Soon Siri’s crushing on Jamie’s best friend Dawn. Jamie’s falling for the handsome New Yorker she keeps running into, Zarar. Alongside a parade of hijinks and budding romance, both girls work to navigate their broken family life and the stresses of impending adulthood.

The Darkness Outside Us

Release Date: June 1st, 2021

Two boys, alone in space.

After the first settler on Titan trips her distress signal, neither remaining country on Earth can afford to scramble a rescue of its own, and so two sworn enemies are installed in the same spaceship.

Ambrose wakes up on the Coordinated Endeavor, with no memory of a launch. There’s more that doesn’t add up: Evidence indicates strangers have been on board, the ship’s operating system is voiced by his mother, and his handsome, brooding shipmate has barricaded himself away. But nothing will stop Ambrose from making his mission succeed—not when he’s rescuing is his own sister.

In order to survive the ship’s secrets, Ambrose and Kodiak will need to work together and learn to trust one another… especially once they discover what they are truly up against. Love might be the only way to survive.

Jay's Gay Agenda (Jay's Gay Agenda, #1)

Release Date: June 1st, 2021

There’s one thing Jay Collier knows for sure—he’s a statistical anomaly as the only out gay kid in his small rural Washington town. While all this friends can’t stop talking about their heterosexual hookups and relationships, Jay can only dream of his own firsts, compiling a romance to-do list of all the things he hopes to one day experience—his Gay Agenda.

Then, against all odds, Jay’s family moves to Seattle and he starts his senior year at a new high school with a thriving LGBTQIA+ community. For the first time ever, Jay feels like he’s found where he truly belongs, where he can flirt with Very Sexy Boys and search for love. But as Jay begins crossing items off his list, he’ll soon be torn between his heart and his hormones, his old friends and his new ones…because after all, life and love don’t always go according to plan.

From debut novelist Jason June comes a moving and hilarious sex-positive story about the complexities of first loves, first hookups, and first heartbreaks—and how to stay true to yourself while embracing what you never saw coming. 

Blood Like Magic (Blood Like Magic, #1)

Release Date: June 1st, 2021

A rich, dark urban fantasy debut following a teen witch who is given a horrifying task: sacrificing her first love to save her family’s magic. The problem is, she’s never been in love—she’ll have to find the perfect guy before she can kill him.

After years of waiting for her Calling—a trial every witch must pass in order to come into their powers—the one thing Voya Thomas didn’t expect was to fail. When Voya’s ancestor gives her an unprecedented second chance to complete her Calling, she agrees—and then is horrified when her task is to kill her first love. And this time, failure means every Thomas witch will be stripped of their magic.

Voya is determined to save her family’s magic no matter the cost. The problem is, Voya has never been in love, so for her to succeed, she’ll first have to find the perfect guy—and fast. Fortunately, a genetic matchmaking program has just hit the market. Her plan is to join the program, fall in love, and complete her task before the deadline. What she doesn’t count on is being paired with the infuriating Luc—how can she fall in love with a guy who seemingly wants nothing to do with her?

With mounting pressure from her family, Voya is caught between her morality and her duty to her bloodline. If she wants to save their heritage and Luc, she’ll have to find something her ancestor wants more than blood. And in witchcraft, blood is everything.

June’s TBR!

Hey there, readers!

As every other month i decided to share with you the books i’m planning on reading this month! Well, at least some of them. I hope to get to more books but this are the main books i’ll try to get through this June.

Lost in the Never Woods

When children go missing in the small coastal town of Astoria, people look to Wendy for answers.

It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road, and gets pulled into the mystery haunting the town.

Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, claims that if they don’t do something, the missing children will meet the same fate as her brothers. In order to find them and rescue the missing kids, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.

The Falling in Love Montage

Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms.

Unbothered by Saoirse’s no-relationships rulebook, Ruby proposes a loophole: They don’t need true love to have one summer of fun, complete with every cliché, rom-com montage-worthy date they can dream up—and a binding agreement to end their romance come fall. It would be the perfect plan, if they weren’t forgetting one thing about the Falling in Love Montage: when it’s over, the characters actually fall in love… for real.

If This Gets Out

“If This Gets Out is an absolute showstopper! Equal parts edgy and adorable, this bright, joyful book has everything I look for in a queer YA romance.” —Phil Stamper, bestselling author of The Gravity of Us

Eighteen-year-olds Ruben Montez and Zach Knight are two members of the boy-band Saturday, one of the biggest acts in America. Along with their bandmates, Angel Phan and Jon Braxton, the four are teen heartbreakers in front of the cameras and best friends backstage. But privately, cracks are starting to form: their once-easy rapport is straining under the pressures of fame, and Ruben confides in Zach that he’s feeling smothered by management’s pressure to stay in the closet.

On a whirlwind tour through Europe, with both an unrelenting schedule and minimal supervision, Ruben and Zach come to rely on each other more and more, and their already close friendship evolves into a romance. But when they decide they’re ready to tell their fans and live freely, Zach and Ruben start to truly realize that they will never have the support of their management. How can they hold tight to each other when the whole world seems to want to come between them?
