Happy Wednesday! Originally created by Jill at Breaking The Spine, Waiting on Wednesday was adapted to Can’t Wait Wednesday by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It is a weekly meme that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating!
I’m structuring this week’s post a little differently, using Ari’s posts as inspiration. But before we get to that, this week’s Can’t Wait Wednesday book is…
Each of Us a Desert by Mark Oshiro
Published by Tor Teen on September 15, 2020
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Magical Realism, LGBTQIA+
Xochital is destined to wander the desert alone, speaking her troubled village's stories into its arid winds. Her only companions are the blessed stars above and enimagic lines of poetry magically strewn across dusty dunes.
Her one desire: to share her heart with a kindred spirit.
One night, Xo's wish is granted—in the form of Emilia, the cold and beautiful daughter of the town's murderous mayor. But when the two set out on a magical journey across the desert, they find their hearts could be a match... if only they can survive the nightmare-like terrors that arise when the sun goes down.
- I absolutely LOVED Oshiro’s debut, Anger is a Gift!
- and by that I mean I finished it twenty minutes before meeting them and I was in TEARS
- BECAUSE FEELINGS
- also the summary sounds really cool!
I AM SO EXCITED for this book! What upcoming books are you excited to read? Let me know in the comments and have a splendiferous week!
