Happy May Day everyone! *dances round maypole with bells on my legs*
Today I bring you nine books all written or co-written by David Levithan who is my all time favourite YA author.
Out of this nine though I have only read 3 books so far.
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares
The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily
I just love the covers of these too, they are such bright, neon colours which make my heart sing.
I don’t have them all yet, I still need to get Another Day plus a few more but…
He has a new book coming out on October 2nd in hardback!
YES, A NEW BOOK!
It wont match all the rest plus its a hardback which i don’t normally read but i’m sure I can cope just this once.
I should also mention Rachel Cohn who co-wrote five of these books and Nina LaCour who co-wrote one of them. I love those books just as much as his solo stuff, they seem to bounce off each other so well in the writing.
Is there an auto buy author you are collecting the works of?
A bit of culture for a change here. I am so stoked for Circe by Madeline Miller so thought id read about Circe in readiness plus i just love these Penguin Little Black Classics. And then we have some poetry by Emily Bronte, as you should know by now I am a massive Bronte fan and have been for nearly 40 years!
I have wanted to read this for such a long time and now that i am planning an exciting blog post all about The Brontes this will come in very handy. I am a sucker for letters, diary entries, text, emails etc. Real or fictional so this is gonna be soooooo good.
I saw the next 3 books on Ariel Bissett’s channel and I trust her taste impeccably so I know i’m gonna love these. But this book is so gorgeous. It has this strange 3/4 size dust jacket as if they had run out of paper! but the naked hardback beneath is just book porn basically, look!
You cant really see it but the speckles on this are silvery and shimmery! just stunning.
