MM books July 1

Review:

Love All by Callie Wright from Henry Holt and Company – This is a family drama type book set in the 90s in upstate New York.

Anatomy of a Boyfriend and Anatomy of a Single Girl by Daria Snadowsky, kindle editions from the author – I liked Boyfriend a lot – it’s like an updated Forever by Judy Blume.

Purchased:

Coda by Emma Trevayne Looks good- Male POV, dystopia where the government controls the citizens through music. Interesting, right?

The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp Found a used copy of this one with the original non-movie edition cover. Looking forward to seeing the movie but in the meantime I can check out the book.

Library:

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan  – Audiobook read by Ari Fliakos. I grabbed this one for the title, and it does sound very adventurous and unique.

Astray by Emma Donoghue  – Audiobook read by James Langton, Kristine Hvam, Robert Petkoff, Suzanne Toren & Dion Graham. I’ve heard this audio is fabulous, and I liked Room by this author so I had to take a chance.

Love is a mix tape by Rob Sheffield – The author narrates the audiobook and I like music-themed bios.

eGalleys:

Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover – Companion to Hopeless – so excited to read it!

Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill – Two girls named Sloane, an ice hockey player and a figure skater, switch places for the summer.

Night Film by Marisha Pessl – This book is getting a lot of buzz and it looks like an exciting mystery thriller.

The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle – I liked Myracles Shine a lot, so I requested this one on her name alone- but the more I read about the book the more I want to read it! It’s about the summer after high school and first love.

Taste Test by Kelly Fiore – This looks fluffy and fun, and is about a teen reality cooking competition.

Let me know what you’re reading or listening to in the comments. Have a good week!
