Anyway, I haven't done a book recommendation post for a long time. I sometimes worry that people will have their feelings hurt if I don't mention one of their books. But, I can only read so much. I mean, I wish I could read ALL the books that everyone I know writes, but alas, I cannot. And until a week ago, I've been on deadline after deadline, and I didn't even have much time to read. So, right or wrong, here are some books I've read recently that I recommend.
A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
Beautiful language along with lots of fun and unique characters make this one a winner:
Doll Bones by Holly Black
A little creepy but a delightful adventure story that highlights the difficulties of growing up:
Under the Egg by Laura Marx Fitzgerald
A fun mystery with cool art history facts:
How to Outrun a Crocodile when your Shoes are Untied by Jess Keating
This is such a fun novel for tweens, filled with humor and heart (out June 1st):
Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
Really cute - if you enjoy light and fun contemporaries, definitely check this one out:
Also Known As by Robin Benway
This one is so smart and funny - I LOVE Maggie and Roux. I need to get the sequel:
Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick
Beautiful writing and a riveting story make this historical fantasy a gem:
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Tough subject matter, but wow, so gripping and well written.
I hope to read a lot in April, so will have more recs in a month or two, I'm sure. Would love to hear what you've been reading and loving!
