For August, I want a little of everything. I’ve thrown in some dystopian, apocalyptic, contemporary, mythology, etc. etc. Maybe that’s what I always do. I tend to be scatterbrained. I also like having a different type of book to read when I finish whatever I was just reading…for two reasons. One to give my massive brain a break, and two, so I don’t compare too critically with what I just read. If I read Article 5 right after I read Delirium, right after I read Matched, right after I read The Hunger Games…well it would all just blend together, and I wouldn’t see the uniqueness each book brings. Instead I would get all hissy, pissy, and I would nitpick. You don’t want that. So here are my August reads. Let me know what you think!
Pure by Julianna Baggott
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
The Goddess Test by Aimée Carter
Fever by Lauren DeStefano
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Both Starcrossed and Article 5 have been reviewed by Connie here on the Readdicted Reviewers blog already, and as I have already finished one of these, I can tell you right now our tastes are definitely different. So don’t worry, they won’t be the same. I know you were worried there for a minute.
