If you are in the mood for an honest, insanely well-written and endearing coming of age story, definitely give this one a shot!

Super cute story about a girl who reinvents herself as the perfect Manic Pixie Dream Girl to win back her boyfriend! Sounds more sugary than it really is. This book definitely has some serious sh*t in it but is a great in between read!

Notafraidofwords What's a manic pixie girl? 3y
angrylilasian @Notafraidofwords she's the character you see in movies who is quirky and a little on the wild side who helps the sad, moody or workaholic guy learn how to let go and fall in love. 3y

This is a Peter Pan prequel, before Wendy shows up and ruins everything. It's told from the POV of Tinker Bell! This book is absolutely gorgeous and an all time favorite and will give you so many feels. It is bittersweet, romantic, and the writing is absolutely breathtaking. It's the kind of book where you could pull an amazing line out of every page.

Elisa Sounds awesome! I've always loved Peter Pan and I'm a huge fan of Tinkerbell so this is right up my alley! 3y

In which a princess is betrothed to the price....but she falls for his sister instead. 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩 Absolutely love this new fantasy standalone that is getting ALL the starred reviews. It's a refreshing addition to the YA fantasy genre that is getting a lot of hype in our community and worth a try! We posted the first 2 chapters on our blog if you want to give it a go!

Three Dark Crowns | Kendare Blake

Pickpick

This book is absolutely lives up to the hype. It's a very unique and original fantasy about three triplet sisters, each with their own power, who live where only (yasss) Queens rule, but only one can be queen. So they must meet on their 16th birthday and essentially kill each other in order to take the throne.

This book has A LOT of characters which can be very confusing at first, but stick with it and it will all make sense as you go!

LitLogophile These books are beautiful! And that sounds really interesting. 3y

Strongly recommend this one to anyone who wants to escape for a little while and get caught up in the drama-filled lives of some truly terrible teens (we mean that in a good way, obvi.) What's also cool about this book is it is set 100 years from now and all of Manhattan is now encased in one giant tower with some very cool tech. Fans of Gossip Girl will love this one! PS- the entire package design is GORGEOUS.

This Savage Song | Victoria Schwab
post image
Pickpick

This urban fantasy is dark, full of action and so well-paced. It's the perfect palette cleanser! VE Schwab does a great job of creating this very complex world and revealing details slowly and calculated. It's a dark, no romance story about monsters and what it means to be human. Highly recommend!

WanderingBookaneer @TheBookmarkPR featured it on their social media. I bought my copy there. 3y
EpicReads @JaimitaPR Very cool! 3y
kay89 Interesting that her fantasy books are V.E. Schwab and her YA is Victoria. A marketing thing? Love her fantasy books, so will give her YA a try! 3y

Sweet isn't the right word for this very heartfelt coming out story. It's very well written and somewhere between Simon va the Homo Sapiens Agenda and More Happy than Not in terms of tone. So serious, but full of heart and honesty. Definitely worth a read for Pride Month!

Peddler410 Is this one middle school appropriate? 3y
Dmbulan What could be more appropriate than this book for what Orlando is facing now (I live minutes away from Pulse). I wish everyone was as open and informed as the people I meet in the book community. As a teacher I do the best I can, but pray it is enough to stop the cycle of hate. I must read this book 3y
