Five Book Recommendations (and Another Thing or Two)

Novels for Your TBR List

 

Here's a shocking confession: I read A LOT of books. Also (and sometimes unfortunately), I rarely read a book anymore without critiquing and editing every page in my head--so there are fewer and fewer books I fall in love with. With that in mind, the following are books I've read lately that I greatly enjoyed. I think these are all considered Young Adult novels, and each has some fairy tale or folk tale qualities.

Egg & SpoonThe Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire
A Green and Ancient Light by Frederic S. Durbin
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (not a recent "new read" technically, but one I like to reread now and then because I love this book!)

In other news...

 

Here's a lovely review of The Gold-Son (from Goodreads), written by a teen reader who read an advance copy. 

 
"If you want to read a fantastical novel, I promise you, this is the one for you. This story centered around leprechauns is one of the best fantasy novels I've read in a while. I laughed and cried and felt every emotion known to man--and it was glorious.

This YA fantasy novel is great for literally any age. I could go straight from reading this to kids to reading it myself to giving it to my mother to read. There's not one person that I wouldn't recommend this book to.
"--Olivia

  
The Gold-Son will be released June 20, 2017, and is available for pre-order on Amazon now.

Happy reading, everyone! Be sure to leave me a note in the comments if you read any of the novels I've suggested--or if you have a recommendation for me.
