TTT: Books On My Summer 2021 TBR (June 15)

The books on my summer TBR from June through August are going to be long so I will just have the pictures, each will lead to the Amazon description page so you can find out more information and/or order yours. I always have extremely long TBR’s for each month (30+). This is just a tentative list.

My NetGalley To-Reads:

I ended up with way more ARCs than I thought I would and so let’s see how many I can get to before their release. Hopefully I can get them all read and not get more behind.

#AuthorAMonth:

These are books I am wanting to read but I may read others as well. These are just a short list of ones I know I want to try to get to but I am only going to push myself to read one for each month.

Other:

These are some that I am wanting to read from my own stash, classics, have on hold form the library or just can’t wait to get to.

I know that is way more than ten but I guess I like to challenge myself and don’t know how to just do ten.

2021 Summer NetGalley Challenge Sign-up Post | Book List

Here are some of the books I will be reading for this challenge.

Book Review | The Curie Society Graphic Novel

Release date: April 27,2021

Created by: Heather Einhorn & Adam Staffaroni; Writer: Janet Harvey; Artist: Sonia Liao; Editor: Joan Hilty

Synopsis:

A covert team of young women–members of the Curie society, an elite organization dedicated to women in STEM–undertake high-stakes missions to save the world.

An action-adventure original graphic novel, The Curie Society follows a team of young women recruited by an elite secret society–originally founded by Marie Curie–with the mission of supporting the most brilliant female scientists in the world. The heroines of the Curie Society use their smarts, gumption, and cutting-edge technology to protect the world from rogue scientists with nefarious plans. Readers can follow recruits Simone, Taj, and Maya as they decipher secret codes, clone extinct animals, develop autonomous robots, and go on high-stakes missions. -sourced from NetGalley

Review:

This was an enjoyable read. It was fun learning about some scientists and how this book looks at many non-fiction elements for inspiration.

Follow Taj, Simone, and Maya as they find themselves being recruited by The Curie Society. They will build a friendship and bond as a team as they face challenges that could affect not just them but all of mankind. This is a great book for any lover of STEM. The females here are going to explore real world issues of today.

There are also villains verses heroes. There are also ethic and moral dilemmas. Which you may find interesting. Do you do things for a love of them and to better humanity or do you do things for the love of money?

Do you care about environmental changes? Do global warming interest you? Many young girls will find a love for STEM and science with this book. While some of it was over my head, I grasped the whole of the book. If I had something like this when I was younger I might have been more interested in STEM and the sciences, which is what I think the authors were going for when they wrote this, to inspire you girls and women to find a passion here and pursue it as a career.
