The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
by Suzanne Collins
Release date: May 19th
The Hunger Games is one of my favourite trilogy’s ever, so when I heard about this prequel novel I got super excited! It will follow the 10th Hunger Games, 64 years before the events of the first book. I will be surprised if this doesn’t make my top books of 2020 list.
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
This book had quite a bit of hype before it’s release and was said to be a female lord of the flies type book with queer rep and body horror, sold! As Rory’s debut novel, it certainly did not disappoint for me. It’s definitely not for everyone and is quite graphic and gross at times and some people hate how it ended. I loved pretty much everything about this and can’t wait to read her next book. A school of girls stranded on their island with the Tox gradually killing and changing them in strange and creepy ways, told from multiple perspectives.
