Why I can’t wait to read this
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before, but Edgar Allan Poe is one of my all time favourite poets and authors. I’ve loved his work ever since my year 10 English class studied his work.
I love retellings — another one of my bookish buzzwords. I love seeing someones interpretation on a story. I cannot wait to see what they do with these famous stories.
I’m also excited to get to some new YA authors. Short stories, I think, are one of the best ways to explore a new author’s work.
That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know which books release date you cannot wait for.
Until next time, happy reading!
