The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida by Shehan Karunatilaka

Colombo, 1990. Maali Almeida—war photographer, gambler, and closet queen—has woken up dead in what seems like a celestial visa office. His dismembered body is sinking in the serene Beira Lake and he has no idea who killed him.

In a country where scores are settled by death squads, suicide bombers, and hired goons, the list of suspects is depressingly long, as the ghouls and ghosts with grudges who cluster round can attest. But even in the afterlife, time is running out for Maali.

He has seven moons to contact the man and woman he loves most and lead them to the photos that will rock Sri Lanka.

We’re getting a new Percy Jackson book!
Rick Riordan announced he has written a new adventure starring the original trio from Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, and it’s set to come out in September 2023 in line with the TV adaptation of Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
The book is set after The Blood of Olympus but before The Trials of Apollo.
Oh, and it’s called Percy Jackson and the Chalice of the Gods!

Ali’ Hazelwood’s new book ‘Love, Theoretically‘ has a cover and release date!
We’re getting the book June 13th, 2023 and it sounds like a new fake dating, hate to love classic.

What news are you most excited about this month?

Thanks For Reading,
Jess X
