Quick happy note: The winner of our August commenter giveaway is Mary @ The Book Swarm. Congratulations! We'll email you to figure out which book you'd like and where to send it.

Now if only someone wanted to send these books to us...

Poisoned Apples: Poems for You, My PrettyPOISONED APPLES (Poems for You, My Pretty) = fairytales + feminism + social commentary + poetry. UM, SIGN US UP! What a clever way to talk about the problems that girls face in today's society. Christine Heppermann explains her personal motivations for writing this collection in her eloquent, powerful Author's Note.

I'll Give You the SunAlso: ERMAGAWD NEW JANDY NELSON! Enough said.

100 Sideways MilesWe have an Andrew Smith fangirl over here (cough Sarah cough) so 100 SIDEWAYS MILES has been on our radar forever. Isn't it a magical feeling when a book that you've been anticipating for so long is finally on the bookshelf at your favorite store?

Lies We Tell OurselvesLIES WE TELL OURSELVES by Robin Talley is October's YA Diversity Book Club mix, but we're including it now because it releases at the end of September. The story mixes history, race, and sexuality in a way that promises to be beautiful, compelling, and possibly heartbreaking.

Dreaming in Indian: Contemporary Native American VoicesLast but not least, this unusual book caught our eye on NetGalley. DREAMING IN INDIAN is a nonfiction anthology featuring contemporary Native American voices. Using both prose and visual art, the book hopes to challenge stereotypes and unveil a more genuine Native experience.

Of course there are so many other books we're looking forward to, but we can't spotlight them all.

What about you guys? What books are you looking forward to this month? (If you need a list, here's one on GoodReads.)
