Throwing some YA into the mix...

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell Lois Lane: Fallout - Gwenda Bond All the Bright Places - Jennifer Niven Alive - Scott Sigler The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith The Illuminations - Andrew O'Hagan The Fishermen - Chigozie John Obioma

I realized all the books left on my September TBR list (which I'm halfway done with btw) are all sci-fi/fantasy save one - and  I'm saving that one (The Body in Berkeley Square) for my plane trip next week. 


I don't want to get genre tired and I feel I am coming close to it. To head this off, when I returned a stack of books to the library, I picked up some YA and two Booker prize nominees to throw into the mix.


Fangirl is everywhere! Our library has four copies. I liked Rowell's Attachments, so I will give this a try.


Lois Lane Fallout is a YA retelling of Lois Lane's story. It's an investigative mystery series. The sample showed promise. It was an easy pick.


The Illuminations has some beautiful writing.
