The LA Times Festival of Books is worth a visit if you happen to be in the area. Books, music, crafts, conversations, sun – what could be better than that?
The Pros of Cons is a book that embraces convention culture — and not just when it comes to comic book conventions either. The book imagines a weekend in which four very different groups of people come together in one convention center over a single weekend. Cue the shenanigans.
All in all, it’s unfortunate that the Tasty cookbook was disappointing. Paging through this book is a trite and underwhelming experience. I’ll stick to scrolling through Tasty’s videos instead.
I highly recommend taking a journey ‘In Her Skin’ with this novel. Sit back and enjoy its steady thrum of mystery, suspense, and adrenaline from start to finish.
Obsidio plays out as a fitting conclusion to what has been a captivating science fiction epic. The Illuminae Files are a must-read for young adult science fiction fans — especially those looking for something wholly unique.
Consort of Secrets is an excellent addition to the reverse harem romance genre – the male leads are individually varied and equally compelling, leaving the reader with four romance novels for the price of one!
Jonathan Roth takes kids on an adventure into space with the alien Beep and human boy Bob in ‘Too Much Space!’ — the first book in a new series for younger readers.
Young adult readers looking to ease into hard science fiction will find a great introduction with AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller’s Shadow Run.
The Ambrose Deception is a middle grade mystery that’s full of kooky hijinks, clever twists, precocious kids, and ambiguous riddles. It’s also one of the most exciting books I’ve read so far this year.
I’m absolutely enamored with this world and its characters. I highly recommend Tempests and Slaughter for anyone who’s a fan of magical schools and young adult literature – including Harry Potter fans.
