It’s time to move another letter down the alphabet for The ABC Book Challenge!
Every couple of weeks I’ll be sharing at least one memorable book with a title beginning with the letter of the week, and one (or more) books currently on my TBR.
I’ll be ignoring any As etc at the beginning of titles
The ABC Book Challenge – U
A Memorable Book…
Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt
About the book
Lexi Angelo has grown up helping her dad with his events business. She likes to stay behind the scenes, planning and organizing…until author Aidan Green – messy haired and annoyingly arrogant – arrives unannounced at the first event of the year. Then Lexi’s life is thrown into disarray.
In a flurry of late-night conversations, mixed messages and butterflies, Lexi discovers that some things can’t be planned. Things like falling in love…
I absolutely adored this book from Maggie! I’ve read three out of four of her books so far and I think this one is still my favourite, I love Lexi!
A Book On My TBR…
Unscripted by Nicole Kronzer
About the book
A funny and timely debut YA about the toxic masculinity at a famous improv comedy camp
Seventeen-year-old Zelda Bailey-Cho has her future all planned out: improv camp, then Second City, and finally Saturday Night Live. She’s thrilled when she lands a spot on the coveted varsity team at a prestigious improv camp, which means she’ll get to perform for professional scouts—including her hero, Nina Knightley. But even though she’s hardworking and talented, Zelda’s also the only girl on Varsity, so she’s the target for humiliation from her teammates. And her 20-year-old coach, Ben, is cruel to her at practice and way too nice to her when they’re alone. Zelda wants to fight back, but is sacrificing her best shot at her dream too heavy a price to pay?
Equal parts funny and righteous, Unscripted is a moving debut novel that Printz Award winner Nina LaCour calls “a truly special book, written at exactly the right time.”
This one sounds like it deals with an important subject with the same sort of humour as The Exact Opposite Of Okay by Laura Steven that I absolutely loved, so I have high hopes for it!
Just the one memorable and to be read U book this week, perhaps unsurprisingly there weren’t many U books on my Goodreads shelves! Let me know yours in the comments and be sure to come back on the 25th to discover my V books!
