These 12 books are on my hit list for the upcoming weeks. If you are up for something old, something new, something historic, and something-that-will-be-a-movie-soon, come along for the journey.
The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook, by Dinah Bucholz. Recipes for foods mentioned in the Harry Potter series, like treacle tart, pumpkin juice, and mince pies!
The Giver, Messenger, Gathering Blue, and Son, by Lois Lowry. All four of these are part of the same world. So if you have already read The Giver (which will be in theaters in mid-August!), you can discover the others!
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, by Dee Brown. I have heard this is a historical telling of how we white people slowly destroyed the people who were here in America first. It should leave me in tears and help me understand our nation’s history better.
Seraphina, by Rachel Hartman. Fictional middle ages plus dragons. Something about the peace between dragons and humans about to be broken, and a girl with a terrible secret…something something…looks terribly interesting.
I’m sure when I actually read these guys, I will give you more in-depth reviews of them. But I am really excited about this next bunch of books. They are already all on reserve for me at my public library. Woot!
