Hey guys, today I am feeling a slight blogging slump coming on. I don’t know really, it’s weird, I think it has just been a long week and a long week makes a tired family makes an angry family makes a loud family makes a sad and anxious me. So, to try and cheer myself up and to make an attempt at getting my blogging mojo back I thought I would recommend some books to you guys based off of some amazing book covers, because who doesn’t love beautiful covers???
This is a really fun first part to a three-book mystery! It’s a good YA mystery with your customary first book in a trilogy cliffhanger, and I am excited to read book 2 in 2019! Truly Devious has a really fantastic cover, from what I remember, it doesn’t have too much to do with the actual plot of the novel but, I really like the subtle design of the leaves and the main block colour.
Unearthed is a really fun and short sci-fi novel. It was slightly different to Kaufman & Spooner’s other duo books (the Starbound trilogy) but, you could also tell that it was written by the same authors. Unlike, Truly Devious, the cover is actually a scene in the book, which I really like. I really enjoyed this book and if you struggle with reading these authors’ combo novels I recommend trying the audiobooks!
This book is phenomenal. Faithful is one of the best books I have ever read and I wish more people would pick it up. This book has absolutely amazing writing and the main character that I really love, think along the lines of Alex Craft from The Female of The Species. She’s pretty problematic and she doesn’t always go about things the right way. But, she loves dogs and she loves her people and she is what makes this book so brilliant. Also, the cover is bomb.
Everyone is always talking about how we need more diverse superhero stories and here this book is sitting on the shelf being neglected. GUYS! Here it is! Here’s the story you’ve been searching for! Dreadbought is a really great book about a trans lesbian teen who’s just inherited the superpwers of the worlld’s greatest superhero. It’s got great reviews and is really enjoyable so I urge you guys to pick it up!
JULIET TAKES A BREATH
This book is fantastic and like Dreadnought, I don’t understand why more people haven’t read it. There isn’t much in the way of plot, but if you’r looking for a character based, coming into your own, diverse ya contemporary then this is the book for you.
This trilogy is fantastic and I love it very much. It is also pretty diverse, there’s a deaf ahcracter, a muslim character and a transgender and gender fluid character. Personally, I can only vouch for the deaf rep but, from what I’ve seen all the represntation in this trilogy is good. In classics Riordan style, this is a really fun action trilogy full of a new mythology and lots of sarcasm and humour.
BENEATH THE SUGAR SKY
I love this book! Like all of the books in this series, it’s quite shirt and it packs a punch! It also has a whole cast of diverse characters including a fat MC. As a plus siza gal myself, I can definitely say that the fat rep is amazing. A lot of people complain that the mc being plus size is talked about too much in the novella but I completely disagree. Being plus size is frowned upon pretty harshly in society so how could we not be thinking about it all the time???
This book is brilliant! Wild Beauty is a wonderful and soft book about a group of women who live in a garden on an island. One day, a boy washes up to the island and the girls take him in because guess what he’s got no memory yadayadayada EXCEPT that he’s actually an amazing soft boy who desrves the world and cooks for them when they’re sad and so the cliche premise is allowed this one time. Also, look at that heck’n cover kids I’m screaming(what am I even saying at this point???).
