ok I know I’m posting way too many travel pics but here’s back to books a bit: this spring I went on a YA fiction reading spree for a while, and out of about ten books these three were my favorites, both for story and writing style (and cover art!). The Poet X (in verse! but even if you think you don’t like poems don’t worry, it also reads like a novel) and American Street are both set in the (sometimes too) real world, while The Belles is a dystopian fantasy novel set in a very rich New Orleans-esque world (and felt, to me. A little less teen romance than the cover might imply). – American Street by Ibi Zoboi, Blazer + Bray 2017 hardcover, design by Natalie C. Sousa and art by Elaine Damasco. – The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo, HarperTeen 2018 hardcover, design by Erin Fitzsimmons and art by Gabriel Moreno. – The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton, Freeform 2018 hardcover, design by Marci Senders. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
