    So many amazing titles here (except for The Circle – I abhorred that book with a passion).
    I loved Eliza and Her Monsters the most this summer.
    Do you have any favorites here? 🙂

      Oh yeah, the Circle was tough to get through. I’m also obsessed with Eliza, I definitely fell in love with it within an hour of starting the book. That’s probably my favourite new read from the bingo reads.

    YES to Roshani Chokshi. She is one of my new FAVORITE authors, love both books she’s already done and cant wait for more. Renee Ahdieh is also really great, I love mythologies retold in glitter and gold.

    […] Did any of you participate in my YA Summer Reads Bingo? I managed to read books that fit in each category, so I got a blackout! (I think that’s the term for it.. I remember reading it when Mandy wrote her post for the bingo.) You can check it out here. […]

    Love your bingo! How’d you like Alex & Eliza?? I LOVE Hamilton an I love the history but I haven’t yet gotten a chance to read it. Does the book do the story justice????

      Thanks!! Alex and Eliza was a super cute YA version of the story. I wrote a review for it that you could check out, but it’s more their courtship than the marriage aspect that you might be familiar with from Hamilton.

        I’m totally down for the courtship. I’ll definitely check out your review, then! 😀 Thanks!
