While Peter Pan may have originated as a fairly modern play, it has fairy tale status in the public consciousness. A boy who never grows up, an island filled with childlike wonder, and a grand adventure, the story of Peter Pan has been told by everyone from Disney to London's west end theaters – it is a tale that many children grow up loving.
So I've been doing these monthly TBR strategy posts since April. I find they're really helpful for organising my thoughts and tackling small-term reading goals. Here's my strategy for July.
So, I have a problem. When I like something, I’ll go completely overboard and love it to death. If I like a song, I’ll play it on repeat until I cannot stand to listen any longer (1997 was a tough year – to this day I cannot listen to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ because Little Justine just loved it so much). It turns out, I do the same thing with books.

There was so much hype surrounding When Dimple Met Rishi. It is the kind of book that YA readers have been crying out for for ages, and Menon absolutely hit the nail on the head.
I have stated countless times on this blog that I just don’t like contemporary YA. As a nearly 29 year old, it just doesn’t click with me. However, The State of Grace resonated so strongly with me. This book is something special, and I was absolutely charmed.
I saw this book and fell in love with its gorgeous cover. As someone looking to fill the diversity gap in her fantasy reading, The Wrath and the Dawn was the perfect departure from the ordinary.
