  8. Book Recommendations

    Title: This Savage Song Author: Victoria Schwab Genre: YA Year published: 2016 Summary: (from Goodreads) Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives. Why you're recommending it: I love the concept - of Verity, of monsters being spawned by acts of violence - and the book is so, so, so good. I couldn't put it down. I may or may not have been reading it in a lecture Kate is feisty and arrogant, while August is a monster who feels most human after committing violence, and the two of them have excellent chemistry (without making this book a crappy romance ). The sequel is going to be my post-exam reward to myself.
