Stacking the Shelves is a weekly haul meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality. It is about sharing enthusiasm for the new books added to our shelves – be it physical, ebooks, galleys or borrowed from the library.
Interesting 2021 releases!
We all knew corona-themed books are coming (too soon for fiction ones IMO) but this one is a non-fiction graphic novel so I will give it a try.
“Alex is a rebel from the tip of her purple fauxhawk to the toes of her biker boots. She’s tried everything she can think of to get expelled from her strict Catholic boarding school. Nothing has worked so far – but now, Alex has a new plan. Tired of the sexism she sees in every corner of St Mary’s, Alex decides to stage the school’s first ever production of The Vagina Monologues. Which is going to be a challenge, as no one else at St Mary’s can even bear to say the word ‘vagina’ out loud . . .“
“What if with every person you met, after just one touch, you have a vision of the last time you’ll see each other? Ever. Normally, these visions are innocent—two friends just drifting apart, a random stranger that brushed past you then never crossed your path again. But not today. When I accidentally touch him, within only moments of our first meeting, I’m bombarded by visions of his death. And from what I can see, I’m the reason he dies. Now I just need to figure out why, and how to stop this from happening. Because not only am I to blame, but his very last words to me are…I love you.“
Queer teens being jokingly nominated for prom queen and king decide to actually run for it. Also the protag is a fat queer boy!
“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“
“a dystopian thriller set in the country that’s both the last sanctuary from a world run by artificial intelligence and a totalitarian nightmare state barely holding together…“
A closeted Washington teen who has a romantic to-do list finally get a chance to act on those when he moves to a more liberal queer-friendly community in Seattle. “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.“
This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron
