Kristan Higgins Turns a New Page with "On Second Thought"


Kristan Higgins and I recently met up during an icy morning in Seattle. We settled in with warm cups of coffee in a corner of a beige-and-gilt hotel dining room to talk about her books, the two types of firefighters (no, it's not "hot" and "not hot"), and how her characters find their true selves through changing and difficult circumstances.

Julia Child's Memories of Publishing Icon Alfred Knopf


Julia Child wrote her memoir, My Life in France, with her great-nephew Alex Prud'homme, and in it she chronicled her early struggles and the genesis of a passion for food that she later brought to millions with joie de vivre.  Last fall Prud'homme penned The French Chef in America: Julia Child's Second Act and it's a must-read for anyone wanting to know about Julia's life after Mastering the Art of French Cooking, the pressures of becoming the American grande dame of French food, and how she took re-tooled food television  into a style all her own.

The Mystery Woman in the Field: Kristin Hannah Asks Christina Baker Kline About "A Piece of the World"

YA Wednesday: Best Books of February


February's Best YA of the Month spotlight pick is a historical novel I can't stop recommending--Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham.  The narrative alternates between two teenagers, William Tillman in the days leading up to the Tulsa, Oklahoma race riots of 1921, and Rowan Chase, living in modern day Tulsa.

The Book We've Been Waiting For...Philip Pullman's "The Book of Dust"


It's been announced and postponed a couple of times, but now it's really, truly, happening and instead of one book we can look forward to three - Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust trilogy.  Set ten years before The Golden Compass, The Book of Dust (releasing October 19) and two subsequent  novels, tell the story of Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon.  We're used to seeing prequels and sequels but this is something that Pullman calls an "equel," a story that rides shotgun to His Dark Materials trilogy that began two decades ago with The Golden Compass (titled Northern Lights outside the U.S.).

"What Was So Great About the 80s?" by Jason Rekulak


Amazon editor Seira Wilson describes Jason Rekulak's debut novel The Impossible Fortress as "one of those books -- one of those rare and special few where, once you have finished it, you want all your friends to read it immediately." "This is especially true if you grew up in the 1980s," Seira explains, "because The Impossible Fortress is a coming-of-age story tucked inside a love letter to that strange and wonderful decade" All of the editors agree with Seira on this book, which is why we picked it as a Best Book of February.

The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of February: Our Top 5 Picks


There's a heck of a lot to like among the science fiction and fantasy books released this month. A murder mystery with clones, a supernatural ship made of fingernails and toenails that will usher in the end of the world, a galaxy in which teleportation has made heroic (and hilarious) space pilots irrelevant, a growing revolution against aristocratic magic users, and giant roaches that steal people from their beds...
