April Reading Highlights
- Everless by Sara Holland. I read the first chapter of this in the Penguin Teen superproof and was hooked! I appreciated how well the worldbuilding flowed with the plot, keeping me fascinated for the whole book. I’m so annoyed I have to wait until 2019 to read the next book! Maybe I’ll even set aside time to reread Everless before book two comes out.
- Take Three Girls by Cath Crowley, Fiona Wood & Simmone Howell. This was such an enjoyable experience. Although I particularly loved Kate’s story, I thought all three of the narrators were well developed characters. The ending was pitch perfect in my opinion. I can see myself rereading this.
- Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World by Penelope Bagieu. The graphic novel format made it captivating to read these mini-biographies of amazing women from history. I wholeheartedly recommend this to older readers who love the Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls series. Brazen goes a lot deeper into the stories than Rebel Girls, which I found informative and confronting at times.

I want the map of my life to be drawn by me, but the truth is, everyone writes on it. It’s not just my map. My personal geography is connected to your personal geography. We’re all intersecting.
