The Girl From The Other Side
✿ fantasy, manga
✿ 170 pages
✿ published 2017
I was drawn to The Girl From The Other Side from the beautiful cover and its dark atmosphere. I can already tell the artwork is going to be amazing, and I love the promised unlikely friendship!
✿ fantasy, YA, LGBT
✿ 247 pages
✿ published 2020
Euphoria Kids is about friendship and identity, with magical elements and non-human characters. All 3 main characters are queer too! It sounds so wholesome.
✿ 240 pages
✿ published 2020
Braised Pork sounds weird and strange, from the cover and title! It’s described as an “exploration of myth-making, loss, and a world beyond words, which ultimately sees a young woman find a new and deeper sense of herself”. I’m intrigued.
And The Trees Crept In
✿ horror, YA
✿ 352 pages
✿ published 2016
I’ve accidently gone with a tree theme here! And The Trees Crept In sounds creepy and might have some paranormal elements? Everyone I know who’s read it has said that it actually scary, and I don’t get scared by books very easily so I can’t wait to try this out!
✿ mystery, fantasy
✿ 459 pages
✿ published 2019
I keep hearing about how good Ninth House is, I desperately need to read it! I want to read more of Leigh Bardugo’s works, and this sounds quite different from her other books. It’s got dark academia vibes too, so that’s always a bonus!
Thanks for reading! Have you read any of these?
Great list! I’ve not read any of these, but I’ve seen Braised Pork floating around on bookstagram (and Ninth House too, of course).
