Stuff I Added to My Queue
The hype for A Deadly Education is real (and also that cover 😍).
I’ve seen Fangs all over Tumblr, so I’m excited to finally read it in book form!
The copy for Likes—”stories of friendship and parenthood, celebrity and obsession, race and class and the passage of time, form an engrossing collection that is both otherworldly and suffused with the deceitful humdrum of everyday life”—sounds so unbelievably me.
Smash It! is an own-voices ya novel about self-confidence and also sounds fantastic.
Together, Apart is the only covid-inspired fiction I ever want to read, okay?
The sequel to Well Met? Yes, please!
White Tears/Brown Scars got me with “an explosive book of history and cultural criticism that argues that white feminism has been a weapon of white supremacy and patriarchy deployed against black and indigenous women, and women of color.”
👈 I physically hauled The Beautiful Struggle, Christmas Shopaholic, Difficult Women, H Is for Hawk, Sex and Vanity, The Starless Sea, and The Testaments.
And then I was approved for How to Fail at Flirting and Siri, Who Am I? via NetGalley. (I haven’t been …great at reading and reviewing earcs by their pub date, but these two are publishing on December 1st and January 12th respectively, so I think I’ll have enough time to get my shit together.)
- Hannah shared some of her favorite book memories
- Marie and May complied all of the Book Blogger Awards nominees
- May shared her reading spreadsheet and gave me… ~ideas
- Shealea is back!
- A Twitter thread on what’s trashy when you’re poor, but classy when you’re rich
- Vicky gave tips on how to make your blog and social media more accessible
What were YOU up to in August? Let me know!

Congrats on your NetGalley approvals – hopefully those dates are far enough in the future that you’ll feel more like reading by then. :-)
