Big news! In one week we’ll be holding the first-ever books.tumblr.com cover reveal! Check back next Monday, August 4, for the exclusive debut of the cover for Nova Ren Suma’s new YA novel The Walls Around Us. 
We’re hearing lots of great buzz about this new one from the author of Imaginary Girls and 17 & Gone. It’s a ghostly story of suspense involving a young dancer and a girls’ juvenile detention center—just think of it as “Orange Is the New Black Swan.”

10 Children’s and YA First World War Books
Did you know that 100 years ago today was the start of the First World War? World War One began on 28th July 1914 and lasted until 11th November 1918. It’s one of history’s deadliest conflicts, but there’s few children’s and young adult books set during it (you’ll find much more about WWII). The centenary has meant that a whole host of children’s books surrounding WWI were published this year, so here’s a selection that I’ve come across, some read, some just on my wishlist. Head over to my other Pretty Books to find out more about these books.

We’ve taken over blogger Swapna Krishna’s Tiny Library in Washington DC.
Her lucky neighbors can grab galleys of Sweetness #9, Frog Music, Mr. Tall, The Fever, Dirty Work and Never Mind Miss Fox.


I hear that Sweetness #9 is well deserving of The Lepucki Bump.
