Souvenirs from my Internet Travels: Fall Edition

I thought it was time to do another link round up. Part of this is pure self-promotion and vanity! (At least I can admit it, right?) I’ve been making appearances other places around the interwebs. Earlier this month, Nancy Pearl wrote a column in Publisher’s Weekly on my library and innovative ways we do reader’s… Continue reading Souvenirs from my Internet Travels: Fall Edition

Myth and Mystery: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I’m not generally a fan of short stories. They tend to leave me unsatisfied. Fortunately, The Curiosities: A Collection is so much more than just a book of short stories. The tales grew out of Maggie Stiefvater, Tessa Gratton, and Brenna Yovanoff’s collaboration as The Merry Sisters of Fate, a blog where they write in… Continue reading Curioser and Curioser: The Curiosities: A Collection of Stories
