If you really want to know what I'm up to on a regular basis, come follow me on Twitter. I like it over there.
That said, here's a blog post! I was a judge lately in two book battles. One was The Morning News, a fancy dancy grown-up literary type battle. You can read my judgement here -- of The Sisters Brothers vs. Lightening Rods. But be warned, you teenagers. These are EXTREMELY ADULT BOOKS about extremely adult stuff that might kinda turn your stomachs, plus I use so-called bad words. So, ya know. Proceed with caution.
Then over at School Library Journal I judged a battle between Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Chime. This one is clean-cut and appropriate for all ages! Also, there was some fun back-and-forth in the comments.
I am reading or have just read:
The Unseen Guest by Maryrose Wood
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
Black Heart by Holly Black
The Book of Blood & Shadow by Robin Wasserman
The Secret History by Donna Tartt (re-reading)
I am a bit obsessed with Black's Curseworkers series. It is really super awesome.
Last thing: for booksellers. I am going to be at BEA in the autographing area on Wed. June 9th at 1:30. For Invisible Inkling, my middle grade series of fun. Please come say hello and get a book!
