Top 5 July & August Reads

Urban Fiction, Fantasy, YA Mystery, YA Contemporary and a Memoir

August is coming to an end which means that summer is slowly fading away too. I hope everyone has spent their summer nicely, relaxing and overall having fun. Now we cue a cooler weather, leaves falling off trees and drinking hot chocolate every weekend. Autumn is right around the corner! It’s my favorite time of the year (after winter, of course) and I am so excited to wear flannels and jackets again. Back to the post though…

April is here! Spring begins for many, and for us in Central America: a warm summer starts; you all have no idea how hot it gets here :0 . I prefer the freezing cold and winter but we have to adapt so, warm it is 😀 . Anyway, April has started which means Spring Break / Vacations from college so I am excited to post more articles here, as well as posts for my Instagram Feed so stay tuned for that (@thebookssmuggler) 😉 .

Best Found Family Books I’ve Read

Some of the most underrated & my favorite books with the found family trope and why you should get them asap 😉

When I was deciding what blog post to write this week I came upon some older suggestions and I decided to post all of them in my Instagram story and have you guys choose the one you wanted to read the most. Surprisingly, it was this title the one that had the most amount of votes. And that’s how, my curious self, started to wonder why… Why are they so interested in found family book recommendations?
