From the Library:
The Start of You and Me by Emery Lord: I loved Emery Lord's debut, Open Road Summer, and I've been eager her new book, but my library didn't have a copy. I finally gave up checking. Then, a couple days ago, I was in line at the checkout when I glanced over at the new YA books shelf, and low and behold, The Start of You and Me. I snatched it up.
Church of Marvels by Leslie Parry: My local library subscribes to Overdrive and that's how I checked this one out. I listened to it on audio, and it was not at all what I was expecting, but I liked it.
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh: Another Overdrive audio check out. This was the book club book for the month of August. I listened to most of it on 1.5 speed on the plane ride home from our summer vacation.
Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley: This is the book I was in line to checkout when I spied The Start of You and Me. I'd describe it as a middle-grade The Night Circus, and I'm really enjoying it.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas: It's finally September 1st! I saved a credit so that I could download this on the day it came out.
Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail Carriger: The Finishing School series is a really fun one to listen to. I snatched this one up on a two for one deal.
The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore: Have you noticed a circus theme in the above acquisitions? This story is another. (Out in September)
The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine: Just look at that cover! I'm so thrilled that I got a copy of this Snow White story. (Out in February 2016)
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro: I got really excited when I saw that this is a Sherlock Holmes homage. (Out in March 2016)
The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig: It's a blue time travel novel. There's no way I'm passing that up. (Out in February 2016)
