My August Book List
My fam is moving soon (terrified/excited). For where were moving too, we need to quarantine for 2 weeks. And you know what that means. Books!! Some of the books here are on this list because of awesome reading blogs, so thank you!
With The Fire On High, Elizabeth Acevedo. Not only is the cover pretty darn awesome, but the description sounds really cool. I haven’t read any books by Acevedo yet, but The Poet X is supposed to be really good as well. I’m really excited for this read!
- Genre: Fiction
- Pages: 400
- Other books by author: Clap When You Land, Write Yourself A Lantern, The Poet X, Beastgirl And Other Origin Myths, Woke: A Young Poet’s Call to Justice.
House of Salt And Sorrows, Erin A. Craig. In a manor by the sea, twelve sisters are cursed. What sentence can be more interesting that that? This is part of a large spooky series. *Jumps up and down throwing confetti!*
- Genre: Fantasy Fiction.
- Pages: 403 pages
- Other books by author: Together, Apart.
Amina’s Voice, Hena Khan. This is more MG fiction rather then YA, but I’m trying to read more middle grade anyway. This is a beautiful cover with a beautiful story to tell.
- Genre: Fiction.
- Pages: 208.
- Other books by the author: She has so many! And she seems really cool so, yay!
Carry On, Rainbow Rowell. I’ve been really mad with J.K. Rowling after her anti-trans comments, so I’ve been trying to find books like Harry Potter with on page LGBTQ representatives. Here it is.
- Genre: YA fantasy
- Pages: 528
- Other books by the author: Lots, and lots and lots. Lazy, sorry.
Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell. This book is really cool because the Carry On (see above) is featured in this book. Also I’ve never read a book where the main character writes fan fiction. So, super interested!!
- Genre: YA fiction, bildungsroman (whatever that means).
- Pages: 445
- Other books by the author: See Carry On.
Harley in the Sky, Akemi Dawn Bowman. As a person who really loves circus work (tightrope walker, speaking), which this book features, I’m really excited for this read!
- Genre: YA fiction.
- Pages: 4l6 pages.
- Other books by the author: Starfish, Summer Bird Blue.
Have you read any of these books? Recommend them? Or have you read other books by these authors? Thanks for reading!! Maeve, out.
