Sunday, June 29, 2014

Great by Sara Benincasa

Release Date: April 8th, 2014 

Cool Factor: It's a Great Gatsby retelling (also, I like the author's Tumblr)

Side Note: My friend just bought this so I'll be stealing er, borrowing, it from her soon.

I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

Grasshopper Jungle

Cool Factor: Sci-fi fantasy with princesses and romance and WHY HAVEN'T I READ THIS YET I MEAN I HAVE IT SITTING IN A BOOK STACK

Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith

Release Date: February 11th, 2014 

Cool Factor: There's praying mantises come to the end the world or something? Sounds trippy and awesome.

  1. Yup, I want to read all of these. :) I missed a chance to see George Takei on Pride Day - he was here in Ohio. I'd love to meet him one day.


Your comments brighten my day. :)
