One of my favorite parts of my job is making PLL's monthly reading list. Every month, I get to pick the YA books that I think my coworkers should be reading, and then I make them report back with their thoughts.
This month, I assigned DIRTY WINGS to myself. I haven't read ALL OUR PRETTY SONGS yet, but the reviews on Goodreads assured me that DIRTY WINGS could be a stand alone. The cover reminds me a lot of one of my favorite book series while I was growing up, DAUGHTERS OF THE MOON:
I wanted to be Jimena (girl on the right) SO BAD. She called boys vatos, wore giant hoop earrings, and had a teardrop tattoo under her eye. In my twelve-year-old mind, this seemed like the perfect combination of danger and glamour. (Who am I kidding, it still kind of does).
Anyway, all this does is make me even MORE excited to read DIRTY WINGS! You can find out more about the book here:
