Tana French is better than ever in the new one, by the way (also out today). 

The teenagers’ affected idiocy, and an argot for which Ms. French blames American reality TV shows, may not make this the most inviting milieu for those who like the sheer Irishness of her other novels. The international lingo of texting and teenage movies (“Um, duh?”) provides the police with an extra, nerve-racking challenge. But part of this book’s trickiness is its way of letting characters hide the truth behind the smoke screen of language and let both readers and investigators gradually figure out who is lying.

It’s out today! Yippee skippee!

Little Olives, I had so much fun today hanging out with all of you who showed up at BEA. My apologies to everyone that I ran out of books! Don’t forget, I’ll be there tomorrow signing for Panic at 10:30am at table 12!

Nothin’ to see here just browsin’ the “Lauren Oliver” tag on tumblr and coming across this adorable photo of the author.

Q&A with Charles Todd

An Unwilling Accomplice by Charles Toddis a great read. Not only does it have a riveting mysterious plot but it also has details about English society during the World War I period. Since this month marks the 100th anniversary of the war people might want to read this book to immerse themselves in that era.

I think Pierce maybe doesn’t even realize just how autobiographical a lot of Red Rising is,” Brown’s editor Braff tells me over the phone. “I’ve read that book now, I can’t tell you how many times, edited it several times over. I’m so far into book two, and so far into the characters, that I’m really deep into Pierce’s psyche now. I think that in many ways, he is Darrow. In many ways he’s a guy who rose up from modest to extraordinary means and feels a kinship — ah, this is going to sound corny as hell — but a kinship with people who are social outcasts in one way or another. I think that he’s a person who is deep into two different worlds, and that makes him fascinating and it makes his characters fascinating.

Really enjoying this piece about a LibraryReads favorite, Pierce Brown!

This little girl at the library wrote me this card. If I ever make it big in the library world and get an office to myself I’m framing this and putting this on my wall.

Notes like these are the best thing about being a librarian.

I think you should frame it and put it on whatever wall is near you, even if it’s your bathroom wall.
