Books of August

Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay (8/9)

It sounds like a fresh take on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  I loved Starcrossed and its take on the story so I'm willing to give this one a try.

Sweetly by Jackson Pearce (8/23)

This is a follow-up to her Sisters Red.  Same world, new story.  I am willing to give it a go.

The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann (8/30)

I'm really not into dystopians.  I can't explain it but they've just never been my thing.  Until this year, apparently.  It started with Elana's Possession and now this one has totally piqued my interest.  Plus I want this book to do well.  It's middle-grade with a boy protagonist.  While I'd love to see YA with boy protagonists (in the ever-raging debate on how to get boys to read beyond middle grade), if we can get them loving reading, I think it's more likely to stick regardless.


  1. The Unwanteds was something I'd got the pleasure of hearing a few pages of when Lisa McMann visited Houston. I was CAPTIVATED. You will want this book!

    As for the other two they've just been added to my list!

  2. Cool! I did not know UNWANTEDS was MG! Score! I want to read all the books you've listed too :)
