After a couple weeks of writer’s block I’m getting into the swing of reviews again, and reading some good books. Hopefully it was just the summer heat that was making me less interested in writing reviews- any of you ever feel unable to string the words together for book reviews? I’m glad I’m snapping out of it because I have a lot of books to write about!
These are the books I received for the past two weeks:
Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins – A kindle daily deal at only $1.99
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, narrated by Rebecca Gibel – Audiobook provided by AudioGo. A book about mermaids/Syrena that sounds fun and romantic.
The Talk-Funny Girl by Roland Merullo – A coming of age YA/Fiction crossover from Broadway Paperbacks.
My Book of Life by Angel by Martine Leavitt – This book sounds dark and gritty and I’m a little uneasy about the subject matter, but it caught my interest because it’s written in verse.
Emily’s Dress and Other Missing Things by Kathryn Burak – This YA mystery sounds fantastic.
Safekeeping by Karen Hesse – A dystopia that’s getting mixed reviews, it incorporates photos in the storytelling.
The Shadow Society by Marie Rutkoski – A fantasy about a girl from an alternate world who struggles to find out about her past and who she is.
Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant – I like the look of the cover a lot – it looks very Sci-Fi.
Shadows by Ilsa J. Bick – The second book in the Ashes trilogy.
Never Enough by Denise Jaden – This book tackles some serious topics like eating disorders and is also a story about sisters.
Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr, audiobook narrated by the author – I loved Zarr’s writing in How to Save a Life and have been wanting to read more from her.
Hope you found lots of bookish goodness in your mailbox this week!
