Hello and welcome, marshmallows, Realmers, extraterrestrials!
If you read my post, August | A Recap, then you would know I am currently reading Small Acts of Amazing Courage by Gloria Whelan and Emily Windsnap and the Ship of Lost Souls by Liz Kessler. But here are some of he books I would like to read and review in September!
- The Girl Who Could See by Kara Swanson
Ever since Charis reviewed this book, I have been wanting to read it
but I read that post literally this morning so I haven’t really been wanting it that long anyway. It seems like a really good book! AND AHAHFEIHTOBYNW THE COVER IS SO ASTHETIC AND BEAUTIFUL AND JUST AHH! I haven’t actually purchased it yet tho. Here’s the synopsis:
All her life Fern has been told she is blind to reality—but, what if she is the only one who can truly see?
Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that’s what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now nineteen, and one step away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles. Desperate to appear normal, she represses the young man flickering at the edge of her awareness—a blond warrior only she can see.
Tristan was Fern’s childhood imaginary hero, saving her from monsters under her bed and outside her walls. As she grew up and his secret world continued to bleed into hers, however, it only caused catastrophe. But, when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced to consider the possibility that this young man is not a hallucination after all—and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.
2. Paper and Fire by Rachel Ciane
I read Ink and Bone as my first YA and I loved it. Book I was squeaky clean and fingers crossed that this one is as well! The cover is kinda busy, not a huge fan… here is the synopsis:
In Ink and Bone, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine introduced a world where knowledge is power, and power corrupts absolutely. Now she continues the story of those who dare to defy the Great Library—and rewrite history….
Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever.
Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library’s deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London.
But Jess’s home isn’t safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon Jess must choose between his friends, his family, and the Library, which is willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control….
3. Nancy Drew 42: The Phantom of Pine Hill by Carolyn Keene
I’m not huge on ND but this book is supposed to be really spooky so I’m very excited! I haven’t actually purchased this one either…
When Nancy Drew and her two close friends arrive for the Emerson University June Week celebration and learn there has been a mix-up in their motel reservations, the confusion leads to a baffling mystery.
Uncle John Rorick, a descendant of the early settlers of the town of Emerson, invites the three girls to be his guests at his historic mansion on Pine Hill. Shortly after their arrival, he tells them about the phantom who haunts the mansion’s library. Uncle John also relates the weird family saga of a lost French wedding gown and valuable gifts which went to the bottom of a nearby cove in the sinking of the Lucy Belle a hundred years before. Could there possibly be some connection between the phantom and the old ship disaster? Nancy wonders.
In between enjoying the university’s June Week boat races, river pageant, and fraternity dances, Nancy and her friends work diligently to solve the mystery of Pine Hill and to find the long-lost wedding treasures.
4. Penny’s New Beginning (Mermaid Adventures Book 1) by Anika Joy
I’m planning on reading this to review, and then letting my little sister read it because I think she’ll love it!! Plus it’ll support Anika so that’s pretty swawesome. (Sweet+Awesome) The cover is awesome! And like one of the characters is named Emmie (spelled Emmy though) so that’s like the coolest marshmallow evah.
Can they defeat Cassandra?
Nine-year-old Penny Hearting has just moved Nassau with her family and is completely convinced that a mermaid rescued her from drowning, but no one believes her. So, she takes matters into her own hands and goes on a search for the mermaid that rescued her.
Ten-year-old Emmy is the princess of Utopia, an underwater city populated by mermaids. But, when her evil aunt, Cassandra, takes the city from her father, the King, her only option is to seek help from the girl she rescued from drowning.
When these two lives collide, can they and another friend save their homes from disaster?
Aaaaaaannndddd…. Guess that’s it!
