It's been a while since I've done a book post so let's bring this feature back. I never talk about books enough.

Today, instead of a book or series, I'm squeeing about an author - Libba Bray. If you read this post, then you know I got to meet her at YALLFest a couple of weeks ago. She was amazing!

So, let's talk about this woman's books. Now, there is one I haven't read yet called GOING BOVINE. If you have, please squee about it in the comments. (It's on my very long to-read list.)

Now, let's squee about the ones I have read:





Books in Series:
A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing

Plot:
In 1895, Gemma Doyle is sent to a creepy English boarding school called Spence. She has a strange connection to the school and has to figure out what that is.

Why is it squeeworthy?
It mixes historical fiction and gothic fantasy together beautifully. It's easy to get swept away with the story.






Plot:
A bunch of teen beauty contestants survive a plane crash and are marooned on a deserted island. Chaos ensues.

Why is it Squeeworthy?
I laughed so hard while reading this book. At first glance, you think it'll be all serious and stuff, but it is absolutely hilarious. Plus, each of the girls begins as a stereotype of their culture, but by the end they are unique and individual people. It's fantastic!





Plot:
In the 1920s, a group of teenagers discover they each have a special ability, and there is a great evil haunting the streets of New York City.

Why is it Squeeworthy?
The twenties! Ghosts! Psychics! A cast of thousands! Every aspect of this book is absolutely amazing. It's like a 1920s X-Men.


Now, go read these books and tell me what you thought.
