My Most Anticipated August Book Releases
I got a little over excited these last few weeks and added way more books to my to-read pile than I had any right too. With libraries being shut because of COVID-19, I know I won’t be picking up all of these books up within the next couple of months. Regardless they’re on my tbr shelf for a reason and I can’t wait to discuss them with you all in the comments below!
BOOK REVIEW: THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SWEETIE BY SANDHYA MENON
“I think people who stand up for themselves, especially in the face of being told not to, are the kind of people this world needs more of.”
Ashish Patel didn’t know love could be so…sucky. After being dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up. The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl—under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he’ll be taking his date on “fun” excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work?
Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Oh, and she’s also fat. To Sweetie’s traditional parents, this last detail is the kiss of death. Sweetie loves her parents, but she’s so tired of being told she’s lacking because she’s fat. She decides it’s time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she’ll show the world (and herself) what she’s really made of.
Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there’s an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other?

Even after finishing this book, my stomach involuntarily flutters when I think about it because this book has so much heart to it. There’s Something About Sweetie felt like a book my 16 year-old self desperately needed.
