It’s summertime on my Northern Hemisphere island and you know what that means – it’s beach reading time! (I hope I’m not the only one who makes up little stories about who their villagers are and what they like/dislike, ha!). Keep scrolling to see what books my villagers are reading:
Melba is reading…Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron
By day, Melba is a botanist and a scientist. By night, she gobbles up the best new queer YA fairytales on the market.
Zucker & Marina are reading…A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow
Marina and Zucker’s Octopus Book Club pick of the month is all about mermaids, friendship, and self-discovery! [Also, I couldn’t pass up this sweet pic my partner took with our two fave octopi!!!!]
Coco is reading…Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
Coco stares in the void. Harrow stares back. (Coco definitely sold her soul for the ARC).
Rex is reading…The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang
Rex loves wearing dresses and reading graphic novels about love, art, and family!
Tangy is reading…Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Tangy’s favorite early quarantine read was Gods of Jade and Shadow! Moreno-Garcia’s next novel has the perfect spooky gothic vibe Tangy’s been waiting for.
Rosie is reading…Bingo Love by Tee Franklin
Rosie is the Sweet Romance Queen of the island! She could read Bingo Love over and over (and over) again!
Merengue is reading…I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn
As the most esteemed pastry chef on the island, Merengue is always looking for the next sweet YA romance – especially if it features dessert!
Pashmina is reading…Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power
Pashmina, queer farmer and part-time chef, exclusively reads thrillers. Power’s latest book has a queer protag and spooky cornfields – a perfect fit.
