My reading remains sporadic and still easier in audiobook, but I enjoyed a few books in August:
Wolfsbane by SJ Himes: This is the first book in a spin-off to the Beacon Hill Sorcerer series and focuses on werewolves, which is fun since we didn't get much about them in the original series. It made for a good start to the spin-off, and I really enjoyed the couple in this book—and the appearance by a favorite character for the original series—and I hope we see more of them.
The Fantastic Fluke by Sam Burns: Let's start with there being an adorable fox familiar in this book and I love foxes. There's also a guy who's under the impression is magic is incredibly weak—and therefo re believes he's a failure—until a ghost shows up and shows him otherwise. I so enjoyed this book. The world building is so interesting, and I enjoyed the characters. I'll be waiting impatiently for the next in the series.
Demons Do It Better by Louisa Masters: This was a fun paranormal romance about a human administrative assistant working for a team of assorted shifters, demons, and vampires...and the guy he had a one night stand with right before starting the job happens to work there too. I enjoyed the world building, and I'll look for the next in the series.
You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson: This f/f small town young adult romance was just so cute. Liz Lighty is a Black, queer girl with anxiety in a small midwestern town. A town that is obsessed with prom. And Liz has to run for prom queen in her school's big competition because it's the only way she can can the money to attend her dream college. Along the way, there are some great friendships, Liz figuring out how to be herself and find her own type of fairy tale, and an adorable romance.
