It’s officially the last week of August, so it’s safe to say that we’re all feeling a little bit of summertime sadness. That’s why we’ve decided to extend our Summer of the Supernatural reads for an additional week AND add some fun new books for your reading pleasure! There are plenty of books you can get lost in to help you avoid thinking about the fact that August is really coming to an end. Contemporary, romance, sci-fi, mystery…you name it, it’s on this list. So don’t waste a moment; if you start now, you can read them all!
Next up we have Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare! Emma Carstairs is determined to find out the truth behind her parents' deaths five years ago. With the help of her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, Emma will do whatever it takes to avenge her parents' deaths. But when the Faeries unexpectedly release Julian's brother, Mark, who was a hostage for years, Emma might have to take a break from searching for the truth in order to help the Faeries with what they've requested in exchange for Mark. She's willing to temporarily set aside her own goals to help Julian...but what if the person the faeries are looking for is the same person Emma's been looking for?
Next, we have Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things by Betsy Aldredge and Carrie DuBois-Shaw. In this story, Pride and Prejudice meets Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot in this humorous and heartfelt debut about a loving, quirky family on the hunt for the mythical Sasquatch.
Then we have Night World by L.J. Smith. Poppy is looking death straight in the mouth when James appears, offering Poppy the gift of eternal life. It's tempting to accept anything when the other option is dying, but can she trust James to bring her into the Night World? He claims he's her soulmate...but will he actually protect her soul?
Up next we have Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines. To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer. Then he meets Maggie, who has had to endure things he could only imagine. Can they help each other find the best in life?
