The Girl Who Would Be King by Kelly Thompson
While this book is told from the perspective of two teenagers, I wouldn’t classify it as a YA read. I’d classify it as a “kickass females with superpowers who happen to be younger than the usual demographic” read. In reality, this reads like a novelization of a graphic novel, and it’s wonderful. I won’t give away too much of the plot, because the unfolding of the story is part of the fun, but let’s just say superheroes and supervillains have to come from somewhere.I hadn’t heard of this book before, but saw some information about Thompson’s newest Kickstarter-funded novel, Storykiller, and I backed that project because the book looked so great (I’m getting a hardcover copy soon, which is going to have some pretty stellar illustrated pages in there, and I can’t wait!), and a digital copy of The Girl Who Would Be King was included as one of my rewards. I’m so glad it was, because it was right up my alley.If you have difficulty reading graphic violence, you might want to steer clear of this one, because there is a LOT of it, and it’s pretty gross. But if you’re a fan of the storytelling of superhero graphic novels, this is a can’t miss.

The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
I enjoyed this read, I really did, but I had trouble classifying this book…maybe that’s part of its charm! The story follows multiple characters in a small, whimsical town filled with some unique townsfolk. For that reason alone, I enjoyed it. I felt transported to the small southern town, and embroiled by all of the secrets hidden around every corner.Back to the classification issue: one of the main characters, and the first the reader meets, is a teenage girl. This led me to believe it was a YA novel (which is fine by me, as I love YA!), but the other main character is an adult woman. It made no difference to me as a reader, but if you don’t like stories told from a teen’s perspective, this might not be a read for you.If I had to pick something to compare this to, the vibe I think best applies would be the series Gilmore Girls or some of the shots in the film Big Fish. It’s a fun read, and might be best enjoyed at the beach or on the porch with a nice slice of pie.
