Amee: All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson

In 2022, All Blues Aren’t Blue made the American Library Association’s Top 13 Most Challenged Book List. Usually this list is top ten only, but there were so many challenges, several books tied and the list became 13. I have decided to read the 11 books on the list that I had not yet read. George shares stories of growing up queer and black.

Other reads in August:

A Crown of Ivy and Glass by Claire LeGrand

Summer Skies by Jenny Colgan

Karen: The Lost Wife by Susanna Moore

Based on a true story. In 1862, a woman and her children are captured and live six weeks with Sioux Indians.

Megan: Why Did the Monster Cross the Road? by R.L. Stine and Marc Brown

Hunny and Funny are best friends. Can Funny cheer up Hunny? Find out in this silly and fun book!

Jennifer: Verity by Colleen Hoover.

A fast-paced dark thriller. Kept me questioning what was the truth and who was being deceptive. Easy and entertaining read.

Boston Jane series by Jennifer L Holm: An Adventure, Wilderness Days and The Claim.

Young adult historical fiction set in 1855 in the Northwest. Interesting read about a spunky young woman from Philadelphia who travels independently to Washington Territory to marry. When she arrives, her plans go awry but she manages to grow and survive despite many hardships.

Dawn: The Fire and the Ore by Olivia Hawker

A historical fiction of three women in the 1850’s Utah territory struggling to stay alive.
