FYI, if you're in the mood for some "retail therapy"...
* My awesome sister (you know, the tornado chaser) has opened "Thunder and Lightning," a KitsyLane jewelry and accessories boutique, so I invite you to check it out. In addition, her Etsy shop is Stormy Sky Designs. Yay!
* Peadar Ó Guilín's brilliant Bone World Trilogy is now complete with the new release of The Volunteer. Don't miss the dystopian goodness.
* Speaking of science fiction series, Jeff Carlson now has a sequel to his thriller The Frozen Sky. Betrayed is "Vonnie vs. the sunfish"; who can say no to that?
* I was sad to hear that Strange Chemistry is closing its doors. If you're interested in any Strange Chemistry book titles, this would be a good time to get them! I recommend the YA steampunk Emilie duology (Emilie and the Hollow World and Emilie and the Sky World) by Martha Wells.
Last but not least, I finally chose new glasses. Dark blue in front and bronzey-gold on the sides, they're bookverse Ravenclaw house colors, so they had to be mine! Nerdhood rocks!
