Here are a few books that I’m planning to read next.
Persuasion by Martina Boone | This is book two of a trilogy, and it just came out last week! I LOVED the first book, Compulsion. It’s a gothic novel about the South, some old magic, and a sweet southern gentleman nicknamed Eight.
Another Day by David Levithan | This is a companion novel to Levithan’s Every Day, which I adored. It’s told from the perspective of Rhiannon, the girl A loves.
Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D. Schmidt | This book was already on my radar before I went to Anderson’s YA Lit Conference, but after hearing Gary speak there, I can’t wait to read it! It’s about a (very) young father (thirteen!). Schmidt works at Calvin College, which is another CCCU school, just like Northwestern, where I work.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness | I loved Ness’s Chaos Walking trilogy, and I love the way he thinks outside the box. This novel is about the non-heroes’ lives. Each chapter begins by briefly describing what crazy stuff is happening to all the heroes and leaders. Picture this book being the equivalent of a story about a first-year Hufflepuff’s life during the time of Harry Potter. Can’t wait. Bonus: check out this EpicReads video explaining the novel!
What’s in your reading queue?
Wow! This is a wonderful post! I’m just starting out and would like some tips on how to improve my blog. Would anyone mind taking a look? Thanks so much!
Btw: Love Harry Potter!
I have ANOTHER DAY out from the library, I think we are reading THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HERE for book club soon, and I LOVE Gary Schmidt!
Right now I’m really loving ILLUMINAE, and I have to read THE BONE GAP for book club too!
I just bought BONE GAP! I have already read the Ness book and the Schmidt book this weekend– reviews coming this week! I read your post about The Summer I Turned Pretty … I had only read the first book. I feel bad for anyone nicknamed Belly.
Do I need to read the Chaos Walking trilogy to understand The Rest of Us Just Live Here?
Nope, they’re not connected in any way (except for being by the same author). Review of TROUJLH coming later this week!
