A monthly meme to keep up with the latest publications, featuring at least two advance copy reviews to look forward to reading.
Since I announced my summer reading plans, I found it incredibly ironic that I ended up reading less than I expected. Fifteen-ish books lined up and ready to read, and what’s happened? I’ve slacked off a bit. Hmm.
But there are loads of ARCs for August, September, and October coming up, thanks to BEA. This month, I’m hoping to read and review this MG work!
The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell
(Simon & Schuster BFYR, August 25)
Feo’s life is extraordinary. Her mother trains domesticated wolves to be able to fend for themselves in the snowy wilderness of Russia, and Feo is following in her footsteps to become a wolf wilder. She loves taking care of the wolves, especially the three who stay at the house because they refuse to leave Feo, even though they’ve already been wilded. But not everyone is enamored with the wolves, or with the fact that Feo and her mother are turning them wild. And when her mother is taken captive, Feo must travel through the cold, harsh woods to save her—and learn from her wolves how to survive.
I’ll read anything by Katherine Rundell. Truly. Toss in the fact this is set in Russia and I’m practically drooling all over the keyboard.
What books are you looking forward to in August?
