Bye-bye Summer…..Hello Fall reading! It’s been a great summer, but we’re ready for back to school and ALL THE SEPTEMBER BOOKS!
Summer is almost over, but we’ve got a few more beach reads for you. Check out all the YA August has to offer.
We’re keeping things HOT with these July releases. Grab a beach towel and a book (or three) from our OTWB list!
As you know, we had a BIG crush on Jane a few years back, so we’re thrilled to have the Lady Janies introduce us to yet another of their Jane’s with yesterday’s release, My Plain Jane. We’ve compiled an ode to Jane(s) with today’s playlist and hope you enjoy it!
It is Pride Month and the Supreme Court ruled earlier this week that a bakery that didn’t want to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple should have been given further due process under state law rather than just ruling that discriminating against gay couples is against the Constitution. A senator was subsequently kicked out of a refugee facility, but not before his staff noticed that children forcibly separated from their parents were being kept in cages. The Secretary of Education has quietly removed 72 protections for disabled children in public schools. Everywhere you look these days, there is a new reason for outrage and we must all develop coping mechanisms or we will most certainly go mad. That’s where Dear Rachel Maddow comes into play.
Many of us are suffering the psychological and legislative trauma of this administration. I fear that some of us may not make it out and constantly have anxiety that we won’t show up to the polls in November. Taking action may not be the only step to take–sometimes you need an outlet, a motivation to kick your butt in gear. This book may just be what times who feel hopeless are looking for. I am going to write you a letter and tell you why.
Summer is here and we’ve got more books than there are days in June to lounge by the pool. Grab your beach bag and fill it with these One To Watch Books for June.
