Last month’s trip to the library was so relaxing, I love looking through all those shelves of books. It’s also less stress on my wallet and the library is literally down the road from my house. So, I decided to get a new stack of four for this month. Here’s to happy reading!
Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson
If you’ve been keeping up with this blog for a while, you’ve probably heard me mention This Side of Home by Renee Watson more than a few times. It was one of my favorite reads of 2017 and I’ve been meaning to pick this one up ever since. I love Renee Watson’s writing style and her characters are so real. I’ve already finished this one, I devoured it the first few days, so the review is coming soon.
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
Last month I picked up Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. I’ve been hearing about Becky Albertalli’s work for years now but that was the first book I’d read by her. I follow her on social media and decided this would be a good next read since I didn’t see Leah on the Offbeat.
Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed
This is one of those books that was super popular in the blogging community when it first came out but I never got around to reading it. I saw it poking out on the shelves and thought now’s as good a time as any.
Watch Us Rise by Renee Watson and Ellen Hagan
I wasn’t planning on getting this but I saw Renee Watson’s name and read the synopsis. It seems like a feminist manifesto type book and I wanted to give it a chance, even if it isn’t my usual YA fiction.
