Welcome to our first end of month review, where we break down everything we enjoyed reading this month. Be prepared: it’s a lot.
It’s the weekend again, and by “weekend” what I actually mean is “sangria time.” It was a fun week on this end: we reviewed Amy Noelle’s The Hot Corner; made fun of weeping prom queens and other cover trends we hate; talked about the classification of young adult novels; and designed a Fifth Element Date Night. We’ll be back on Monday, but until then, on to the links.
Guys, I have no idea. Wikipedia says: “Mostly set during the twenty-third century, the film's central plot involves the survival of planet Earth, which becomes the duty of Korben Dallas (Willis), a taxicab driver and former special forces Major, when a young woman (Jovovich) falls into his taxicab. Upon learning about her significance, Dallas must join forces with her to recover four mystical stones essential to defending Earth from an impending attack.”
Yeah sure. That can be what it’s about.

It’s finally the weekend—time to sit back and catch up on the happenings of the internet. This week we investigated the best cocktail-genre pairings; picked our top ten summer TBR’s; grumbled about Mary Balogh’s upcoming romantic release; and suggested a How to Train Your Dragon double-feature Date Night. We’ll be back next week with some fresh content, including our thoughts on recent cover trends, a piece on classifying books “young adult,” and our weekly date night. Until then, it’s link time!

Common Novel is a celebration of genre reading. It’s a celebration of the tattered paperback, of the third-time-through, and of the book that’s currently living in your purse. It’s a celebration of the genres themselves: romance, young adult, new adult, horror, mystery, science fiction, and fantasy.
