August 2021 Books

What I read

Deep Secret by Diana Wynne Jones

Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating by Adiba Jaigirdar

The Queer Principles of Kit Webb by Cat Sebastian

Lightfall by Tim Probert

Darius the Great Deserves Better by Adib Khorram

All in all, this was a fairly successful reading month! I loved Darius the Great Deserves Better (not a surprise, as the first book is one of my favorites from the past few years) and liked Hani & Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating quite a bit. Right now, contemporary YA seems to be more my speed than YA fantasy. It feels weird, but here we are!

I have to admit that I was less wild about The Queer Principles of Kit Webb. The premise was great and I liked the beginning quite a bit, but the emotional heft of the book just never quite landed for me.

Lightfall is a juvenile graphic novel with lovely art and an intriguing world. As an adult reader, I wished the story had advanced a little farther at the end, but I think it’s probably just read for the 8-12 crowd.


Sanity & Tallulah: Field Trip by Molly Brooks

Early Departures by Justin A. Reynolds

Diplomatic Immunity by Lois McMaster Bujold

Witness for the Dead by Katherine Addison

By Maureen LaFerney

My name is Maureen. I currently work as a library assistant in a public library in the Indianapolis area, and also just so happen to be a voracious reader. I frequently end up under a cat.

I reread Deep Secret recently too! I’ve been rereading a bunch of DWJ lately, although I did read Witness for the Dead too and really enjoyed it.
