October 2020: tee
From Mamie: tee arnold is the resident YA expert of the Children's Department and has been avidly reading and reviewing books for over ten years, though they slowed down a bit while studying English and Women's and Gender Studies at NC State. Originally from Western New York, they spend about half the year hiding inside lest they melt in the heat. They love dogs, sushi, bullet journaling, and all things Halloween. They're easily identifiable as the bookseller always covered in dog hair.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer (Square Fish $10.99). Cyborg Cinderella set in futuristic New Beijing. The wide cast of characters and unique fairy tale retellings make this my favorite series.
The Cold Is in Her Bones by Peternelle van Arsdale (Margaret McElderry Books $11.99). This stunningly atmospheric folk horror tale is perfect for curling up on a chilly day and reading in one sitting. I absolutely devoured it.
An Affair of Poisons by Addie Thorley (Page Street Kids $10.99). A standalone YA fantastical alternate history about an alchemist who is tricked into poisoning King Louis XIV and starting a revolution. And one of the most wholesome first kiss scenes I've ever read.
Nyxia by Scott Reintgen (Ember $10.99). I'm not usually a big Sci-fi person, but this thriller about a low-income teen from Detroit who is recruited to mine an invaluable substance from a newly discovered planet that a major corporation has kept hidden is everything I never knew I needed.
All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai (Dutton $16). A psychological dramedy about time travel, family, love, and accepting what you have. Sounds cheesy, but this is one of the best books I've ever read.
My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix (Quirk Books $14.99). Picture every 80's teen best friend movie and mash it with The Exorcist. This is creepy, quirky, and wonderfully written.
The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington (Orbit $17.99). Don't let its size scare you, this epic high-fantasy is richly crafted and compulsively readable. And it's a trilogy, so there's plenty of story to get lost in.
Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw (Orbit $15.99). Dr. Greta Helsing is the medical provider for paranormal creatures. When a mysterious new group emerges threatening to purge the world of demons and the unclean, she and her various (super)natural friends must save this underserved population.
Differently Morphous by Yahtzee Croshaw (Dark Horse Books $12.99) This is a philosophical, dark, horrifyingly believable look at what the world could look like if we discovered a cure for aging. But, like, in the best way possible.
The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien (Mariner Books $25.00). I had to include a classic. I've taken three classes on Tolkien, I reread his works, at least in part, every year, and I will jump at literally any opportunity to talk about The Lord of the Rings.
