Bookshelf roundups” are just what they sound like: they “roundup” my latest reviews and upcoming reviews.
Yo readers! I’ve been reading a TON of YA, this month. Here’s the roundup, thus far:
First up was The Children of Icarus, a YA Fantasy by young author Caighlan Smith.
Kiersten White’s fabulous Alt Historical YA, And I Darken, was next:
My favorite of the bunch was a crossover fantasy from the 1980s: The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley.
I’m always looking for fantasies like this book, so I welcome your suggestions! This was a five-star, for me.
But in the next two weeks, I’ll be reviewing a couple of adult picks, in addition to an upcoming YA:
The Thief of Kalimar by Graham Diamond, a 1979 middle-eastern-flavored Fantasy that was recently republished as an ebook.
The Golden Torc by Julian May, book 2 of The Saga of the Pliocene Exile, an adult sci-fi published in the 1980s and republished by Tor in 2013.
Aaaaaand Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova, a Latin-flavored YA Fantasy which will be published Sept 6th by Sourcebooks Fire. [Review now available!]
Isn’t that cover creepy!?
