Hi Lefty’s readers! It’s me, Kayla, again and I decided to share with you guys a mid-year catch up type thing. I have already 63 books this year and I am hoping to make it to 75.
1) Jigsaw Jungle by Kristin Levine
This is a book I got from my internship. It’s a middle grade book and is told through interviews, texts and emails. The story is about a twelve year old girl whose Dad leaves without any explanation and sends her clues through puzzle pieces.
2) Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
Morgan Matson is by far one of my most favorite authors. She is the best for summer reads.
3) Hot Mess by Emma Belden
This book tackles a lot of difficult topics such as addiction and recovery. It takes place in the Chicago food scene and will keep you on your toes till the end.
4) Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
I love Miranda Kenneally. Her books are feel good and have important lessons. Jordan was one of the best characters to get to know. This is the first in the Hundred Oaks Series.
5) Not The Girls You’re Looking For by Aminah Mae Safi
I am extremely grateful that I was able to participate in a blog tour for this ARC. I LOVED it more than anything. It was just a messy and real novel.
6) You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon
This was the first YA book I read about Jewish teens whose Judaism is more than just the holocaust. It meant the world to me to be able to see myself in these characters.
7) The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
As a white person I found this book to be one of the most important reads. The writing was out of this world and it really made me think.
8) The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
THE BEST ROMANCE I HAVE READ. So much fun and so great.
9) Dear Martin by Nic Stone
This another one of those books that really made me think. It was a perfect book to read after I had read The Hate U Give.
10) Chaotic Good by Whitney Gardner
This was amazing. As someone who is not very into gaming I found this to be so interesting. I love the cast of characters.
