some books i want to read this fall 📚

Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks: *takes deep breath* I’ve been waiting to read this book for like.. a year? It’s a Faith Erin Hicks graphic novel with pumpkins and cute overalls and fall. What else do you want from life?

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World by Shannon and Dean Hale:(reread) was my number 1 favorite book when I read it last summer. I’m half scared to reread it because what if I don’t like it anymore?, and half excited because Squirrel Girl is my favorite Marvel superhero. I really love this book because it’s HILARIOUS and a realistic portrayal of a indefatigable, super awesome, and absolutely unbeatable teenage girl.

The Story Of Owen: Dragon Slayer of Trondheim by E.K Johnston: I’ve heard some really good things about this book, and I really like the concept. Dragons that feed on fossil fuels? No romance? A compelling alternate history? Modern-day dragon-slayers and bards that sing their praises?

Beverly, Right Here by KateDiCamillo: KateDiCamillo is one of my favorite authors. Reading one of her books is like looking at the world through a prism; It’s like seeing the beauty and the truth of life. She writes through a young person’s eyes so powerfully and fully- and I especially like how she depicts non-nuclear families without trivializing the problems children face. I’ve already read the first two books in this series, and I’m so excited that DiCamillo chose to write about a teenage protagonist in this book. I think this is her first book ever with a teen protagonist? *incoherent screaming*. Anyway, I can’t wait to read Beverly, Right Here.

Kat and Meg Conquer the World by Anna Priemaza: (reread) Video games, anxiety and ADHD rep, Canadian protagonists, and REALISTIC female friendships- this book is the kind of book you want to hug. I really liked reading this book the first time around even though I kinda got annoyed at Meg at some points in the story, but I still love and want to protect both Kat and Meg because they DESERVE THE WORLD.

  1. Hello,

    I really love your blog. Especially your mosaic pictures. You’re brilliant! I know you’re a young lady, but do you have any book suggestions for a 10 year old boy? I’m trying to suck him out of the video games. Any ideas you have would be great.

    1. Hi Nikkie! Thank you!! Sorry it took so long to reply, I haven’t been very active lately. For a ten-year-old, I would recommend: Aru Shah and The End Of Time by Roshani Chokshi, The Magisterium series by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare, and The Sand Warrior by Alexis and Mark Siegel. I haven’t read it myself, but The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi is a novel about a group of friends trapped in a video game. I’ve heard it’s good, and that’s something he might enjoy. Hope this helps!
