Unfortunately, our September book club was cancelled. However, we still wanted to discuss Most Likely with you! We chose Most Likely because the author, Sarah Watson, is the creator of The Bold Type. Also, we loved the premise of four best friends and one of them is destined to be President.
FYI, our next virtual book club is on October 26th. For more information, check out the Facebook event page.
Besides reading and traveling, we’re super passionate about politics. That’s why we’re using YA books to encourage everyone to VOTE!
If you’re an American, the 2020 election is on Tuesday, November 3rd. Not only are we voting for the next U.S. president, all of the House of Representatives and 1/3 of the Senate are up. You may also have additional candidates, depending on your state and locality. One of our goals is to get out the millennial vote, because guess what?! We outnumber boomers. Also, this is the first presidential election cycle that some of gen-Z can vote in.
If you’re not registered to vote, you can do so easily through TurboVote. Do it now! Also, check out all U.S. state voting deadlines here.
Below you’ll find our YA book recommendations that inspire political participation and efficacy. And remember, if you can, request to vote by mail ASAP! Your vote matters.
Let’s surprise the country with an unprecedented amount of election participation by those under 35!
Here’s a list of books we plan to read during the month of September! Let us know in the comments below which books are on your TBR list for next month. We’re always looking for new recommendations.
1. Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin
Serpent & Dove was our favorite book of 2019! We’ve been dying to get our hands on the sequel. Good news friends: this book is out TOMORROW, September 1. Be sure to get your hands on it to catch up with Lou, Reid, and the rest of the crew as they’re on the run from the Dames Blanches and the chasseurs! We can’t wait to see what our favorite witch and witch hunter are up to in this installment. Fingers crossed for more swoon-worthy romance!
