Recently on NetGalley, I found myself getting approved more and more from romance books, but less so for young adult books. However, this month, it seems like the opposite is true: I was approved for a few young adult titles that I’m excited to read and share my thoughts on! Here are some of the books that I was recently approved for:
- Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao
While I wasn’t extremely invested in Gloria Chao’s first book (which I DNF’d around the 50% mark), her next book sounded a little more up my alley. This book has the fake dating trope, which I enjoy, so I am excited to pick this one up.
Rent a Boyfriend follows Chloe, who hires a fake boyfriend to impress her parents.
- Love & Olives by Jenna Evans Welch
Love & Olives is by Jenna Evans Welch, the author of Love & Gelato and Love & Luck, both of which I enjoyed, so I knew I had to request this book as soon as it appeared on NetGalley. While I’m never completely drawn in by the plots of these books, I am always completely sucked in by the descriptions of the scenery.
Love & Olives follows Liv, who travels to Greece to assist her estranged father with a documentary.
- You Have a Match by Emma Lord
I had no idea that Emma Lord, the author of Tweet Cute, was releasing another book this year. While it isn’t my all-time favorite contemporary, I did enjoy Tweet Cute, especially the dialogue between the two main characters. After reading the synopsis of this book on NetGalley and based on my previous reading experience of a book by this author, I requested it right away on NetGalley. Since this author has been pretty popular this year, I wasn’t expecting to get approved, but I was extremely excited when I did!
You Have a Match follows Abby, who learns that she has a sister after taking a DNA test. Abby and her sister decide to meet at a summer camp and figure out why her sister was given up for adoption.
What upcoming releases are you excited to read?
