Books with a Yellow Cover

Book store staff are always trying to look up books based on the color of their cover. I’m just doing my best to try to help.

Yellow Cover YA Novels

I feel like there would be a major mix of highs and lows about working for a bookstore. The plus would obviously be spending your entire day surrounded by books, which would be a dream to me.

The downside would be that they have to always answer the question, “I’m looking for one book that has a certain colored cover.”

Well, I aim to please, so I’m doing my best to answer the question in this article.

 

 

  • The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Nighttime

    • interesting book of a guy who sees things differently from the rest of the world- he’s on a different wavelength, as it were.

1618

  • It Only Happens in The Movies

    • Audrey starts working at the movie theater, and falls in love with a dude working there. Sounds like a dull book, I know. But actually it’s a rough romance with ups and downs, so it’s kind of fun.

  • The Program

    • Futuristic dystopia where emotions are forbidden, and love may not be able to conquer all. Fairly serious book that addresses Depression.

  • The Extraordinary and Unusual Adventures of Horatio Lyle

    • This time, a mystery! This mystery is set in Victorian times. It kind of reminds me of a revamped take on Sherlock Holmes, although the lead character is a much more human connected person than poor Sherlock is really capable of.

  • Beautiful Stranger

    • A classic teen read about drama, cliques, travel, and the Sunny L.A. life. This isn’t the first book in the series, but it is fairly interesting, and just what I’d want to read when I was exhausted and wanting something light and interesting.

Let’s Blog About it: May Blog of The Month

Between The Lines is an awesome book blogger you’ll want to check out!

Book

Cathy Rocks if you love all the fiction and want to get reviews on the best of the best across genres!

I’m always on the lookout for the next book to read, but I have to admit sometimes very genre specific blogs don’t fit me well. I’m not a specific kind of reader, I like many different genres, so it’s an issue for me. Cathy, thankfully, is here to help!

Cathy at Between The Lines

Cathy has a lot in common with me. She loves books, dogs, and the beach, and I just don’t think I need to say more with that kind of recommendation!

 

Book Blogger

Cathy covers different genres of fiction.

What Makes Her Rock

Many Genres

For those like me who want the best of the best from across fiction!

Short Reviews are Great for the Time Crunched

Her reviews are usually just one computer screen long, which is great if you want to figure out if a book is right for your TBR pile fast.

Not a professional- Which Can Be a Good Thing

I like that Cathy isn’t a professional book reviewer. You know she says good things about the books because she means it, not because it makes her money. (I haven’t reviewed anyone on this site who is willing to leave good reviews for books they don’t like, just so you know.)

Great All Around Book Blogger

Cathy is awesome, and if you like a lot of different books and have very little time I think she’s a great blogger. And her reviews are entertaining, without dragging on so long they become reviews themselves! I’m a fan.

Be sure to let me know in the comments who your favorite book reviewer is!

The Literary at Leisure: A Roundup of YA Beach Reads for Older Teens

In honor of Summer FINALLY happening this year, I’m kicking off a new series of YA book roundups: Beach Reads! These books are totally perfect for hanging reading on your sand speckled towel at the shore, of course, but they are also great reads for the flight to your vacation destination. Or the hours long road trip. Or sitting in school or work and wishing you were heading off to some vacation, for that matter.

A trip around West Europe involves a lot of boy drama and family drama. And you know me, family drama is right up my alley. Like most vacation themed books it’s pretty light hearted but it does delve into some exploration of identity. Plus, being nineteen is an awkward feeling where you don’t quite feel adult or teen, so that’s definitely interesting to connect to.

Lottie’s Aunt, a famous author, dies, but that’s only the beginning. A series of letters from the grave push her to do new things that will lead her to her tipping point. The book pays homage to books and reading as much as to the mysteries that plague Lottie’s Summer.

Lara is a girl facing the Summer of Senior Year. Yep, where she is no is all a pretty big deal. But in between fun and trying to moonlight as her parent’s wedding planner, she has to deal with the looming problem of The Future.

A happy ending doesn't mean everything needs to be resolved. In Fangirl, Cath is a loner fan-fic writer who’s dreading the social interactions she's expected to make during her first year of college. With her twin sister pulling away and her father urging her toward independence, she feels lost and clings harder to her favorite characters. But then she meets a boy. And another. And much more importantly, discovers she's a talented writer even when she's not in the world of her favorite author, but one she's created.

Cath is a bit of a mess. Honestly, life is moving too fast for her, and she isn’t quite ready for her first year of college yet. It’s going to happen soon either way though. Join Cath as she digs deeper into reading and fandom to escape the pressures of reality, only to find that maybe everything is going to turn out okay.

What did you think of this week’s #BeachReads? Did you read and enjoy any of these books?

Adventures in The Forest

The forest is a pretty magical place to me, but it’s not that way all the time. Any part of nature can be treacherous and threaten your life. Especially if you live in it all alone without the conveniences of modern life to show to you from danger. Today were going to dive in to some classic and some new adventure books based in the wild!

Hatchet

https://i0.wp.com/images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61tkn0Wgc-L.jpg?resize=288%2C430&ssl=1

Hatchet is an adventure classic, a straightforward tale of a boy who ventures into the world alone and must fight against the forces of nature which threaten to kill him even while his secret tries to tear him apart.

My Side of The Mountain

Sam is a 12-year-old boy who hates his family's cramped New York City apartment and decides to run away to his great-grandfather's abandoned farm in the Catskill Mountains. He reads a book about wilderness survival and uses his fledgling skills to stay alive: camping, hunting, and even making a peregrine falcon named Frightful his pet and hunting companion. Inspired an entire generation of kids including probably Richie Tenenbaum to be fascinated by falconry, and was named to the the Newbery Medal Honors list in 1960.

This was one of my dad’s favorite books growing up, but it took me a few chapters to warm up to it. Naturally, when I was forced to read it in school, I wasn’t a fan of it at first just because I was against the principal of assigned reading. once I really got into it though I was a big fan of this! It’s a classic survival book, yes, but it’s cool in the clever ideas he uses for said survival. I will definitely be reading this!

The Sign of the Beaver

It's 1769 and 12-year-old Matt is left on his own in the wilderness while his father resettles their family. He befriends a 14-year-old Native American chief's grandson named Attean and learns to hunt and fish, and is eventually invited to join the tribe and move north. Some of the descriptions of native culture in this book are dated, but the underlying message is of acceptance and understanding.

This book is a little different because it relies on teamwork for the hero to survive. it’s a pretty historical novel, not really because it’s old but because some of the cultural portrayals are. That said a story of a boy basically abandoned by his family coming to find his identity through friendship with someone who is supposedly his enemy by virtue of race alone is both interesting and encouraging. I flipped through it, but I definitely intend to sit down and read it front to back someday soon.

Have you tried these books? What adventure books are your favorites?

Book Blog of The Week

I thought it would be fun if I shared with my readers the various book bloggers I follow. It might seem a little backwards for an author to love the book bloggers who will likely review them and their work, but you have to remember that the people who make books also tend to like reading them and I’m glad I have somewhere to go to figure out what the next things I should read are.

I thought for my first #BlogOfTheWeek review I should feature one of the first book bloggers I followed. The Past Due Book Review covers books that have already been published and were new years or even decades ago.

Partially that’s fun because it brings new-to-me books to my attention, and it would be a shame for great books to be forgotten just because they came out a bit ago. The fact that books released in the past are very affordable to buy now does sometimes persuade me to pick up some of the books he covers, but I always end up happy that I did so in the end.

I’ll admit I also enjoy Erik’s writing style in his posts, so that’s a double win for me.

Head over to his blog if you want to find the latest delayed reviews he’s posted!
