Here is my haul from this week:

The Art of Taxidermy by Sharon Kernot
Description from Goodreads
Lottie collects dead creatures and lovingly cares for them, hoping to preserve them, to save them from disintegration. Her father understands—Lottie has a scientific mind, he thinks. Her aunt wants it to stop, and she goes to cruel lengths to make sure it does.
And her mother? Lottie’s mother died long ago. And Lottie is searching for a way to be close to her.
The Art of Taxidermy is a heartbreaking verse novel exploring love and death, grief and beauty, and the ways we try to make sense of it all.
Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla
Beau volunteers to work off the debt at the Diaz Ranch. What he isn’t prepared for is Bett Diaz. Bett is known as ‘The Beast’ at their school because of her bad temper, Beau approaches the job with caution and vows to stay away from the boss’s daughter. However, Bett has other plans—bored and friendless, she finds excuses to shadow Beau whenever he’s at the ranch. After hours spent in her company, Beau learns the secrets behind Bett’s tough exterior and finds himself falling for her. That is, until he catches Bett in a lie.
