Reminders and book recs!

If you’re in the greater Atlanta area, don’t forget to come see me–and Lauren Willig!–at our events this weekend. Friday we’re at the Mountain View Public Library, and on Saturday we’ll be at Books For Less in Buford courtesy of the Gwinnett County Public Library. Details on the Appearances page. We’ll be speaking and signing–I’ll have A TREACHEROUS CURSE and Lauren will have THE ENGLISH WIFE, so don’t miss out!

Too far from Atlanta to make it? Already read A TREACHEROUS CURSE and THE ENGLISH WIFE? I got you. Here are a few books I’ve just read and thoroughly enjoyed:

*HIS MAJESTY’S DRAGON. Naomi Novik. First in a series, imagine Napoleonic Wars but with DRAGONS.

*THE BEAST IS AN ANIMAL. Peternelle van Arsdale. Spooky, atmospheric, and very Grimm. This YA will be coming out soon in paperback, so if you want the hardcover, you’d better hop!

*THE GRAVE’S A FINE AND PRIVATE PLACE. Alan Bradley. Ah, Flavia de Luce, it’s been too long! This is the latest installment in Bradley’s acclaimed series which features a 12-year-old chemistry prodigy as an irrepressible sleuth.
