Hello everybody! Today, I’m doing another post in which I spell out a word using books, as I’ve been doing all year with each month. Onto the post!
A is for… the Astonishing Future of Alex Nobody– this is a sci-fi, time travel middle grade and I had so much fun with it; it’s about a girl named Alex Nobody who has always attracted an unusual amount of attention all her life, and her going into the future and maybe getting some answers as to why. It’s very funny and clever and I loved the worldbuilding.
P is for… the Paper and Hearts Society– this was the debut novel of Lucy Powrie- aka my absolute blogging IDOL and a huge life inspiration- so it wasn’t a huge surprise that I completely adored it. It’s such a lovely book that celebrates friendship and reading and has so many funny moments.
R is for… Red, White and Royal Blue– this is such a fun book, it’s basically like the West Wing meets romance book, and it’s about the romance between the First Son and a British prince . If you don’t know, I’m a big West Wing fan so I was basically always guaranteed to enjoy it and I do still kick myself it took me such a long time to pick it up. Little note that it’s very much New Adult rather than YA though, as I know that’s a common misconception.
I is for… I, Cosmo– this was one of my very favourite books of 2019, and it remains one of my favourite books, although I do really want to reread it and just keep not getting to it. It’s a story about an elderly golden retriever who is trying to keep his family together amidst domestic chaos and I cried the entire way through because I loved Cosmo so much and he just reminded me of my own dogs (especially Shimmer!).
L is for… Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good– this came out a couple months ago and it follows Norse god Loki carrying out his punishment of being forced to live as a mortal and change his ways. It’s absolutely hilarious, especially the bits where his diary talks back to him, and if you’re looking for something light and funny and silly, you can’t go far wrong here.
Thank you so much for reading! Which books would you have chosen for each letter? Do you have any thoughts on the ones I’ve picked? I’d love to chat with you in the comments!
