April Reads

 

Click on the links below for my reviews

Looking for a Middle Grade graphic novel that’s big on charm AND heart? Try The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang.

Want some YA fluff? Check out The Only Thing Worse Than Me Is You by Lily Anderson [and … if you’re a fan of ACOTAR series, try the new novella: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas].

For those who seek literary YA with a side of gut wrenching and a heavy dose of gorgeous writing, read We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

A YA novel-in-verse that I felt lucky to read, and am sure will feature heavily during awards season: The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

My “most surprising and sweet YA” award goes to: Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan

And though it’s written for adults, Exit West by Moshin Hamid is a must read both as a heartbreaking novel and as compelling allegory for globalization.
