I only picked up one book this week, The Way You Make Me Feel. It looks like a cute YA romance centered on a summer spent working at a food truck.
I only picked up two books this week; The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds, a reference book on seed saving and plant propagation, and We Set The Dark On Fire, a young adult romance/dystopia. I think. It looks pretty interesting, anyway, and the author had stories in both All Out and Toil & Trouble, both of which I enjoyed.
So. I…may have gone overboard this week. I may have checked out seven books without turning anything in. Whoops!
So these two are because I checked out Greywalker last week – Poltergeist is book 2, and Mean Streets has a short story that lands between books 3 and 4. Book 3 is only available as an ebook, so I’ll check that out when I finish Poltergeist.
I checked out two nonfiction books this week, both about climate change. The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World, and Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore.
The last three books are a little more random – I finally got my hands on And I Darken. It made a huge splash on the internet, and one of my personal friends highly recommended it. The other two were spotlighted on Book Riot somewhere – Frankenstein in Baghdad, in which someone accidentally puts together a Frankenstein monster in, well, Baghdad, during the war, and The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love, which should be a little lighter fare.
Just two books this week – I finally got my hands on The Poet X by Elizabeth Acavedo, which has gotten lots of amazing reviews, and we checked out the first book in an urban fantasy series, Greywalker, after reading a related short story in an anthology. There’s nine books total in the series, plus a few short stories, so if the first one is good, I’ll be in that world for a while!
This week was a week for diverse books! I picked up two Young Adult lesbian romances, It’s Not Like It’s A Secret and Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit, one LGBTQ anthology, All Out: the no-longer-secret stories of queer teens through the ages, and one Afro-Latino Pride and Prejudice retelling, Pride. Very excited about all of these!
