Epic Recs: June


Epic Recs #2 is happening! I knew this would be fun but I never expected to have THAT much fun and that it is so exciting to both make someone read a book and get pushed to read a book!

Last month Rosie made me read Broken Symmetry, a book I never heard of before and probably would never have read if she hadn’t forced it on me. And I’m glad she did because I liked it! I’m also glad she liked Winger, my rec for her.

My Rec:


More Than This


I realized that Rosie never read a book by Patrick Ness before which I had to change of course. I made her choose between 1st in a series + cliffhanger and standalone and she chose the latter. I could choose between a fairy tale retelling or werewolves and chose werewolves.

  • EEP!! I haven’t read any of Patrick Ness’ books either, and I’ve heard so many amazing things for More Than This! The cover alone draws me in and I’m really eager to give it a try. I don’t know much about Hemlock, but I’ve seen high rating reviews on Goodreads!! Hope you guys enjoy your Epic Recs of the month! This must be the best feature to get us reading outside of our comfortable genres =)
