Four to Read More – Gloucester

Inspired by Kelly Jensen’s “Three on a YA Theme” series at Book Riot (take a lookwe’ll wait!), we present Four to Read More, mini-collections of four books that share some common theme, whether it’s the name of a character, a cover design quirk, or something else. Check back frequently for a new one, and be sure to email us if you come up with your own!

This time, the theme is Gloucester font. I noticed a bunch of books in the library that had this serif font. It looks like a mix of the fonts used on circus posters and fancy newspaper fonts of yore. Since these books are so disparate, I’m sure one of them will appeal. Enjoy!

The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd
In this take on The Island of Dr. Moreau, Juliet Moreau learns that her estranged father has been doing strange experiments on a remote island.

Complete Poems by e. e. cummings
This unique poet was at times funny, at times lyrical, and utterly unique. This collection has every poem he ever wanted published.

Dreamquake by Elizabeth Knox
This sequel to Dreamhunter is another unique fantasy about The Place, a land where dreams are harvested. Laura Hame finds herself in the midst of another adventure.

Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

It’s hard being young and in love with someone who seems unattainable. But when the man you love is a Jewish journalist and you’re Hitler’s niece, it may be even harder.
