5. The Girl with All The Gifts

By M.R. Carey (403pp)

I didn't expect to finish another book so quickly but once I started this I had no choice. I think this book is enjoyed best going in with as little knowledge as possible. I guess I can say the setting is post-apocalyptic and there's lots of scary action. RECOMMEND.

4. This One Summer

By Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki (319 pp)

This is a fantastic graphic novel. The illustrations are wonderful and the story perfectly captures that feeling of friends and a special summer place and summer rituals. Recommend.

3. Miles Morales: Spiderman

By Jason Reynolds (273 pp) (ebook)

I can't remember how I got this book and I am no expert on the Marvel Universe and did not know that there was a African-American/Puerto Rican Spiderman character. This is a YA about Miles juggling  high school troubles, girl problems, family issue and his super powers and a creepy bad guy. Fun to read, great setting and characters. Recommend.

2. Seriously Wicked

By Tina Connolly (224 pp)


I've been working on writing and my reading has dwindled to rushed skimming of the New Yorker and starting books and never getting a chance to finish. Like this one.

This is a YA fun witches in high school story. There is a demon summoned, a boy band, dragons, mean girls and a halloween dance. Recommended for YA fans.
