Here are the books I recently acquired:
Cress by Marissa Meyer
—I had to get this to continue with the Lunar Chronicles. Though I didn’t enjoy Scarlet, I am curious to see how things will work out.
Lucy by Randy Cecil
The Sound of All Things by Myron Uhlberg, illus. by Ted Papoulas
—These two are illustrated children’s books that I picked up because I like the covers.
Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure by Ann M. Martin and Annie Parnell, illus. by Ben Hatke
—Look at that upside-down house! This looks like a fun, middle-grade novel.
The Ones by Daniel Sweren-Becker
—A young-adult, dystopian novel that features genetic engineering. I wonder if I’ll like it.
Riverkeep by Martin Stewart
—I had to get this because I love the cover. It’s young-adult fantasy.
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Vol. 1: BFF by Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare, illus. by Natacha Bustos
—A crazy comic book about a girl who befriends a dinosaur. I had to get it because the protagonist is Black. I hardly ever see that!
Why Write?: A Masterclass on the Art of Writing and Why it Matters by Mark Edmundson
—I picked this up at my job so it was free. I got it because I like to read books on writing.
Wolf Children: Ame & Yuki by Mamoru Hosoda, art by Yu
—As I mentioned in my recent Wishes for My TBR post, I had a 40%-off coupon for B&N and after reading Summer’s review again, I found myself adding this book to my cart. I’m debating whether or not to watch the movie first.
Book of the Month Club
Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue
—I was so glad to see that this was a pick for the month.
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
—I was glad to see this book too because I’ve been trying to get a copy from Book Outlet but always miss when it’s on the site.
What I’m reading this weekend:
It will be these four this weekend. I’m still making my way through Assassin’s Quest on my buddy read and am still reading Thunder & Lightning as well. Lots of facts in that one and illustrations too.
Lucy and The Sound of All Things are pretty short so I’ll get through them very quickly.
