Backlist bump: The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith
Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
A fantastic start to a new middle grade series! (We can never have too many!) This is a wonderful story about a young girl named Aru who is spending her summer break in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture. Oh, and she kinda accidentally awakens an ancient demon. In the ensuing chaos, Aru’s mother and classmates are frozen in time, and it’s up to Aru to save them. This book is a delight. I loooooved it.
Backlist bump: Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
Herding Cats: A Sarah’s Scribbles Collection by Sarah Andersen
A new collection from Sarah Andersen is a reason to celebrate. When I read her comics, I feel SEEN. I love her takes on life, whether it’s imposter syndrome, her love of cats and books, her body image, or her love of sleep and solitude. She is the best!
