I love Aladdin and I love space-related stories, so I honestly just couldn't pass up that opportunity and here we are. It seems to be a gender-bent Aladdin retelling, too, which is exciting.

This Time Will Be Different [Misa Sugiura]; 2019 YA Releases

I'd like to say that I'm interested in reading This Time Will Be Different by Misa Sugiura, but to be completely honest it doesn't seem like this book is really something I'd be interested in reading.

Before the Broken Star [Emily R. King]; 2019 YA Releases

I feel like I need to know a little bit more about Before the Broken Star by Emily R. King before I know for sure if this story is for me. However, I'm intrigued enough by this revenge turned truth-seeking plot and the girl with the clockwork heart to be willing to give it a…
