This week we are featuring Lindsey, whose friendly face can be seen at the Teen Events the Coupeville Library.
The Beast is an Animal by Peternelle Van Arsdale.
This dark fairy tale held me captive. I finished it in less than a day. When a superstitious village banishes twin sisters and their mother, bitterness and rage harden the girls’ hearts and they become soul eaters, which is exactly what it sounds like. This book is full of witch panic and evocative language, and the setting takes inspiration from Wales.
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman really brings the Norse myths to life in his latest book. Aside from my Marvel-based knowledge of Thor and his family, I didn’t know much about the Norse gods. I thought no pantheon could top the craziness of the Greek gods. I was wrong! Gaiman reads the audiobook in his silky baritone and breathes life into the characters.
Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!, vol. 1: Hooked on a Feline by Kate Leth
I was introduced to Patsy in a She-Hulk comic book and I’m thrilled she has her own series! She used to star in the romance comics of the 1960s, which now come back to bite her. When she’s not masquerading as the superhero Hellcat, she’s struggling with jobs, rent, and relationships like any other New Yorker. These comics are hilarious and cheerful and I love the charming illustrations.
These are some fantastic suggestions – thanks, Lindsey!
