A new month, a new pile of books for me to read. I raided my local library this weekend, so I’m pretty much set for the month. Heres what I’m hoping to get read in the month of August.
- Nemesis by Anna Banks
I’ve been hearing some pretty good things about this book recently, so I decided to pick it up. It’s a fantasy novel with an intriguing premise about a princess forced to the refuge in an enemy kingdom when her father tries to use her unusual powers as a weapon
“The King is her nemesis. Can she trust him – And her growing feelings for him?”
- Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
This is another novel I’ve been hearing wonderful things about. It’s a contemporary novel about a girl named Jesse, who develops an email relationship with a mysterious stranger calling themselves Somebody/Nobody after moving across the country to Los Angeles.
- The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
This middle grade fantasy is supposed to be an absolutely beautifully written book. It sounds incredibly interesting. I mean, it’s about a swamp witch and the girl she raises as her daughter.
- Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
This book comes highly recommended by my fellow Barnes and Noble reviewers. I always love a great pirate adventure, and a strong female character is always a plus, so I’m very excited to pick this one up.
- Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin
I’m incredibly excited about this one, because it’s a novel about a gender fluid teen named Riley who write a blog about their personal experiences.
- The Book Jumper by Metchild Glaser
I honestly just picked this book up because of how pretty the cover is. It’s about a girl who can travel into books, which honestly sounds like a dream come true.
- The Young Elites by Marie Lu
I’ve been hearing about this series for a long time, and I decided it’s finally time to see what the hype is all about.
- Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman
I read Seraphina, the first book in this series, last summer, and I absolutely loved it. It’s an incredibly unique take on one of my favorite mythical creatures: dragons.
- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Another recommendation from my Barnes and Noble friends. I actually started this interesting Sci-Fi a while ago, but I never finished it. I love the unique writing style, so I’m excited to jump back in.
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This seems like everyone’s favorite contemporary romance, and I haven’t read it yet. Hopefully I’ll be changing that very soon.
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Another LGBTQ+ novel that I’ve been wanting to read for a while. I’ve been told it’ll probably make me cry, so I’m pretty excited.
