- I didn't read any books for fun this month. Zero. None. But I did read a lot of stuff for school and enjoyed it all very much. Top choice: "The Lonely Londoners" by Sam Selvon, a groundbreaking 1950s novel about the Windrush generation in London, written entirely in the Creole dialect, detailing the stories of a group of West Indian men living in a London that didn't want to let them into its heart.
- I didn't read my "best book" choice this September. Actually, I read it about a year ago, but it got its cover this month from Simon & Schuster and, by golly, I'm insanely excited to see it on the shelves next May! Here it is:
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby (from goodreads): A contemporary YA novel about a girl who, years after her mother's death, gets a fresh start in a new seaside town. She seems to be outrunning the past, but discovers that the sea glass she wears around her neck is not just a token of her mother's memory but a connection to the very stretch of water she now calls home.
Isn't it just beautiful?!
