AKA the Perfect Month! ✧・ﾟ:*ヽ(◕ ヮ ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧ The summer-fall transition means that, if you’re in Vancouver, you get a decent mix of sunshine and rain–which means Nafiza and I can stop arguing over whose idea the rain/sun was anyway.
September also means: new theme!
This month, we are all about … S P A C E!
THE FINAL FRONTIER! *ahem* I mean, we are about all kinds of space, including the kind that Amy Poehler dances in:
- Space could definitely refer to the final frontier, though. Also, non-fiction on awesome space adventurers. Definitely look forward to Jane’s post on Mae Jemison! *__*
- Space could also refer to liminal/complicated/transitional spaces, and I may have a couple of book recommendations to that end! Hint: One is something that’s leftover from last month’s theme!
- We could also just mean a mysterious setting or an exploration of landscape. I think Nafiza has more to say here. And she most definitely will be talking about The Land of Forgotten Girls by Erin Entrada Kelly.
- I am certain Janet (and maybe even Steph) will have awesome things lined up too!
September also means a ton of new releases that we’re excited to talk about here: Cindy Pon’s Sacrifice! The Bronze Key by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare! A somewhat belated look at Kate Elliott’s Poisoned Blade! And! We have some exciting blog tours coming up:
- For Zoraida Córdova’s Labyrinth Lost
- and Sarah Porter’s Vassa in the Night
It’s a pretty full month, you guys! And we may have some B I G news as well! Stay tuned. ^_^
And happy September!
