Another week come and gone! Aside from being on call this weekend, I am looking forward to zero plans and reading ALL THE BOOKS, or really like four books. I finished Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper last night, I am about 88 pages away from finishing Five Summers by Una LaMarche, 2.5 hours from finishing my audiobook, and I have a graphic novel plus a Netgalley book that I want to finish this weekend. (Note: I just finished Five Summers while waiting for the video to upload, and I have 1.5 hours left of the audiobook and less than half of my graphic novel left to read). Perhaps I am being overly ambitious, but honestly, I love that feeling of finishing books. What about you guys?
Galaxy’s Most Wanted by John Kloepfer (Unsolicited Finished Copy) – This is cute, looks fun, and is short. Plus there’s pictures. I think I will read it.
The Zombie Chasers: Nothing Left To Ooze vol. 5 by John Kloepfer (Unsolicited Finished Copy) – Fifth in a series, I think I’ll pass. But, you guys might be interested in it if you are an elementary school or middle school librarian, or if you have kids. It sounds like a fun Halloween read and a neat series at least.
Case File 13: Making The Team vol. 2 by J. Scott Savage (Unsolicited Finished Copy) – Starting this series seems more realistic as there’s only one book I’d have to start and obtain. I don’t know though. Also, another fun looking Halloween read for Middle Grade fans.
Case File 13: Evil Twins vol. 3 by J. Scott Savage (Unsolicited Finished Copy) – I may or may not read this. Cool concept though. I just need to get my hands on volume one.
The Graveyard Book vol. 1 graphic adaptation by Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell (Unsolicited Finished Copy) – OMG YES I AM ACTUALLY BEYOND THE MOON EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK. Not that I am not beyond the moon excited for other books, but this one is extra special, ya dig?
From Edelweiss and Netgalley:
Liars, Inc by Paula Stokes – Boom clap? The sound of my heart as I download this book?
Little Peach by Peggy Kern – ANOTHER VERSE BOOK, but this one is about a child prostitute and it is in the style of Ellen Hopkins so I am expecting sad and I can’t frickin wait to read this.
Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay – This sounds like a gorgeous, hard hitting contemporary book. Cannot wait.
A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas – I am so stoked for this Sleeping Beauty retelling. This is the year of abundant retellings it seems, and I LOVE IT ALL.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – That cover, though. And it is fantasy and it sounds kind of brutal so it is right up my alley.
The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand – It has been way too long since there’s been a Cynthia Hand book in my life.
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby – This is one badass cover. Also, this sounds like another hard hitting contemporary book. I love all the contemporary books!
The Distance Between Lost And Found by Kathryn Holmes – This looks like it’s a YA that melds survival, bullying and religion and that means I can’t fricken wait to start reading it.
Geek Girl by Holly Smale – This sounds hysterical — pretty much I can’t wait. ALSO OMG IT SOUNDS LIKE MODEL BEHAVIOR BUT WITHOUT THE SWITCHING.
My Heart And Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga – ALL THE CONTEMPORARIES. This is another contemporary book about a girl who wants to kill herself and it sounds sad and amazing and great.
Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – This sounds totally AMAZING. It’s an LGBTQ YA book and oh my goodness I can’t wait to start reading it.
