I’m going back to blogging during my brief summer break- I used to be a blogger in my later teen years but my posts have become sporadic during uni. I tend to read queer upper YA and philosophy, let’s be friends if that sounds like your taste!
This challenge is officially called 20 Books Of Summer, but since I live in a more rural area where some books may not be accessible, I decided it was best to do 10 books I either already have or know for sure my library has.
Owned books (Softcover)
Really sorry about the alignment, but blame WordPress.
I found The Scottish Play at a Free Little Library nearby. Even though I’ve obviously heard of it, I’m not really sure what it’s about beyond your typical Shakespeare tragedy.
The Round House is also supposed to be a tragic book. It was the main book for one of my classes that I dropped, and I ordered a copy before making that decision. It was for a Native American Lit class that sounded really interesting but it didn’t fill the requirement I thought it did.
Owned Books (Hardcover)
The Many Half-Lived Lives of Sam Sylvester a new release. It’s a “gripping murder mystery that will keep you turning pages, ghosts, romance, and a treasure trove of queer characters with depth and heart. Here’s something rare- a suspenseful story that also feels like a hug.” – Sarah Glenn Marsh.
I have no idea who that is, but wow.
A History Of Wild Places was a botm pick that I’ve had on the shelf for a while. I wasn’t the biggest fan of it’s companion, Love & Other Disasters, but I believe this will be very different. The first sentence is “Death has a way of leaving breadcrumbs, little particles of the past that catch and settle and stain.”
I have goosebumps…
