August is a big reading month with a half-dozen stand-out new releases on our Best YA Books of the Month list, and the YA book club pick chosen by our readers.
For the book club, we’re taking a road trip with John Green’s Paper Towns, so we’ll be talking about the book and movie on our Goodreads group. The titles we couldn’t live without for August? As you’ll see below, they include a super creepy ghost story of sorts, a must-read for fans of Cinder, and a companion novel to one of my favorites from David Levithan…
Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell (Spotlight title)
Mechanica premise sounds similar to
Cinder, so I figured I’d either love it or hate it. Obviously it’s the former…This Cinderella is a strong, steampunk style inventor who wants to escape her evil Steps by way of a technological exposition hosted at the royal palace. One of my top reads this year.
Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton
Another Day by David Levithan
Every Day so it was exciting to read the companion novel coming out later this month (8/25),
. This time, Levithan tells Rhiannon’s side of the story and her journey to learn the truth about love and how it can change you. If you haven’t read
Every Day, start there.
Con Academy by Joe Schreiber
The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
