- •Writing Great Books For Young AdultsI've been reading this on and off (mostly off) since the beginning of the year. One of my novels has a pre-teen character in it to whom I'd love to give a spin-off novel of her own - not least because I love the world I've created. I don't know if it's for me - it's been so long since I was a teenager and I don't really have teens in my life - so hopefully this can help me figure it out! Good so far. A solid 8/10.
- •Started this 20 minutes ago. So far it's pretty cute - about a fat girl figuring out her love life, sex life, life life.Suggested by @victoriaedel
- •The Assassin's Apprentice by Robin HobbI had recently started this before my trip but didn't take it with me. Just getting back into it. Decent so far.Suggested by @macnchz
- •Pretty Baby by Mary KubicaOnly 10 pages in, but excited to read more! I read The Good Girl by the same author and loved it, so I'm expecting good things from this one as well.Suggested by @KikiHines
- •Milk and Honey by Rupi KaurI read this in one sitting last week and have been thinking about it constantly ever sinceSuggested by @littlegreen
- •Road Allowance Kitten by Wilfred Burton. Illustrated by Christina Johns. Translated by Norman Fleury.Imagine being told to leave your home without your pet. Based on a true story, the book gives readers a glimpse into the history of the Metis in Saskatchewan. The picture book is written in both English and Michif. Included is a CD of the book spoken in both languages. The story made me cry. It is horrible what we did and continue to do to our indigenous neighbours. 5/5Suggested by @solitarygigi
- •Just Mercy by Bryan StevensonAbout half way through and it is both devastating and inspiring, sometimes all within the same sentence.Suggested by @readjulia
