How was your weekend? We had incredible sun so I spent most of my time in that. Mine has been mildly ruined by extremely painful headaches that have been coming in bursts all weekend. But I can’t believe that it’s the first of June already! Nearly halfway through the 2020. For me it’s just flown by, but I know that’s not the case for many. But anyway, Enough rambling, on with my TBR for the month!
Obscured by C.M Boers. Like I have been saying for ages, I am rereading this. Currently on 74% so I’m nearly done. I thought I had reviewed it harshly previously, so I thought I’d reread it but now I remember exactly why I didn’t like it hahaha.
Abby Martin thought she was an ordinary girl about to start high school. But when her mom announces that they’re moving to Arizona, vivid nightmares start plaguing Abby’s nights. As she settles into her new school and a cute guy named Pete catches her eye, she hopes that life might somehow get back to normal. To Abby’s horror, “normal” becomes a thing of the past as she’s swept up into a world of immortal protectors wielding supernatural gifts. When Abby realizes she’s a pawn in a centuries-old feud, she must figure out who she can trust before she’s caught in the crossfire.
Prepare yourself for heart-pounding suspense in the world of Obscured, where nothing is as it seems and danger lurks in unexpected places.
Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt. I’ve been wanting to read this for months but I just haven’t got to it yet. Contemporary Romances are perfect for the summer and I’m just in the mood for it.

Another YA Contemporary Romance I want to get to this month is the Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett. I’ve been desperately waiting to read Chasing Lucky but since it’s release date has been delayed I thought I’d read this next.
Beatrix Adams knows exactly how she’s spending the summer before her senior year. Determined to follow in Da Vinci’s footsteps, she’s ready to tackle the one thing that will give her an advantage in a museum-sponsored scholarship contest: drawing actual cadavers. But when she tries to sneak her way into the hospital’s Willed Body program and misses the last metro train home, she meets a boy who turns her summer plans upside down.
Jack is charming, wildly attractive, and possibly one of San Francisco’s most notorious graffiti artists. On midnight buses and city rooftops, Beatrix begins to see who Jack really is—and tries to uncover what he’s hiding that leaves him so wounded. But will these secrets come back to haunt him? Or will the skeletons in her family’s closet tear them apart?
I was kindly gifted Haze by Rebecca Crunden in exchange for an honest review, so I’m excited to get to this one. It sounds truly amazing!
When Eliza Owens gets a phone call in the middle of the night from a girl she’s never met, she doesn’t know what to think. The girl introduces herself as Paige, and says she used to date Erik Stern, Eliza’s fiancé. What’s more, she has something important to discuss. The only problem? Paige has been dead for years. Believing it to be a sick prank, Eliza tries to force it from her mind until Sam, Eliza’s older sister, tells her she met Paige only a few weeks before. And, according to Sam, Paige has nothing nice to say about Erik. The fight which follows shatters the lives of everyone involved, and Erik disappears without a trace. Five years later, Erik returns to town after his father’s death. Old wounds quickly resurface, and with them several burning questions. None the least of which is: Who spoke to Eliza and Sam if it wasn’t Paige? And why?
