September/October Books

Masterminds and Wingmen was written by the same gal who wrote Queen Bees and Wanna Bees, and is a similar book.  It gives clueless parents (me) insight into modern boy culture (HotDog).  I don't know that it's as helpful as Queen Bees, but then I never had girls so maybe that wasn't as helpful/insightful as it seemed to me at the time I read it.

I liked what Between the World and Me had to say, but the lack of chapters made it a bit of a run-on sentence  Except for not, because it has sentences and paragraphs, and flowed well.  I just like an easy spot to close a book for a while.

The Raven Boys is the first in a series, and I was please to rediscover than I like Stiefvater.

Octavia Bulter - how did I miss her work all these years?  Luckily book group fixed that, so now I can go find her other stuff.

Feyland was one of those free Kindle books, which can be hit or miss.  This one was mostly a hit.  Nothing particularly literary, but a good read, and hey!  That's what I was looking for.

Buried Destiny is the first in a series by a new author.  It's a paranormal gay romance, I enjoyed it, and gay romance isn't my usual thing.  (Full disclosure, I've known the author since we both had nursing babes, so I might be a bit biased.  Except I'm not, if you like gay paranormal romance, this is a good one.)
