What’s the last book you added to your TBR?
.........
Isn’t this cover badass? I can’t wait to get to it! I’m so excited for this ‘fairytale’!! Plus I got to meet Elana at #alaac18 and she was so fun! .........
Summary:
The rite has existed for as long as anyone can remember: when the prince-who-will-be-king comes of age, he must venture out into the gray lands, slay a fierce dragon, and rescue a damsel to be his bride. This is the way things have always been.

When Ama wakes in the arms of Prince Emory, however, she knows none of this. She has no memory of what came before she was captured by the dragon, or what horrors she has faced in its lair. She knows only this handsome prince, the story he tells of her rescue, and her destiny to sit on the throne beside him. Ama comes with Emory back to the kingdom of Harding, hailed as the new princess, welcomed to the court.

However, as soon as her first night falls, she begins to realize that not all is as it seems, that there is more to the legends of the dragons and the damsels than anyone knows–and that the greatest threats to her life may not be behind her, but here, in front of her.

THE DARKEST MINDS was one of the first series that really got me into reading so I am extra excited to read the next installment in the series. I picked this one up at #alaac18 and I am so so excited to read it.

This one is overdue: a moment, for terrazzo. •••
Across Canal Street in New Orleans, there's a shuttered two-story restaurant that was "The Pearl". In addition to a pretty good set of ghost signs, the shell of an eatery also offers one last surprise: the outdoor entrance flooring features oysters, rendered in terrazzo. [Swipe through for a closer look, and to image 4 - an oyster plate! - via Tom Price, nola.com/Times-Picayune.] Bivalves in pavement! Zowie!
•••
••
Terrazzo is nifty, in its own right. A flooring descendant of mosaic, the colorful amalgams of cementitious base material and marble and glass chips are found everywhere from the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Terrazzo is durable, so you'll see it in hotels and train stations, and it is flashy and fun (and maybe cheaper than mosaic?), so it appears in retail and theater lobbies.
•••
••
My apologies for this #latergram. Some people went to #RBMS18 and #ALAAC18 and seemed to have oodles of extra time in New Orleans, at least judging by their prolific sharing, and the great breadth of distance traveled for those #AdventuresWith... escapades. But I digress. Your friendly neighborhood Archibrarian saw some sights, too, it'll just take a while to send the post cards. ----- #RBMS18 #ALAAC18 #LibrariesOfInstagram #IGLibraries #IG_Libraries #ArchibrarianOnTheRoad #Terrazzo #TerrazzoTuesday #ThePearl #Oysters #NotMyPhoto4 #VirtualPostcard

One of our favorite parts about meeting authors and illustrators is having them sign a copy of the book! It’s always fun when they go out of their way to personalize it and add their own touches. Prior to my first being born, I met Kevin Henkes and had him sign it to my unborn (er, unconceived) child. A little nutty? Maybe, but it always brings a smile to my daughter’s eye because she knows she wasn’t born yet, and then it’s extra special. Have any of your favorites to share?
.
We often meet authors at conferences and events, and authors often sign them at book stores as they travel around the country. If we win a contest on instagram, the author or illustrator might also personalize them before they send them to you. Take a peek at some of our favorites! #storymamasbookaday #authorsofinstagram @joshfunkbooks @lalalauriekeller @rachelruizbooks @tm_illustration @stephenshaskan @peterhreynolds @elise_gravel @andreawhywang #kevinhenkes #alaac18 #nerdcampmi @ilatoday #raisingreaders #meettheauthor

Out July 31st, a poignant and timely novel about race, class, and second chances.

Ever since T’Shawn’s dad died, his mother has been struggling to keep the family afloat. So when he’s offered a spot on a prestigious diving team at the local private swim club, he knows that joining would only add another bill to the pile.

But T studies hard and never gets into trouble, so he thinks his mom might be willing to bear the cost… until he finds out that his older brother, Lamont, is getting released early from prison.

Luckily, T’Shawn is given a scholarship, and he can put all his frustration into diving practices. But when criminal activity increases in the neighborhood and people begin to suspect Lamont, T’Shawn begins to worry that maybe his brother hasn’t left his criminal past behind after all.

And he struggles to hold on to the hope that they can put the broken pieces of their damaged relationship back together. #middlegradebooks #mglit #kidlit #weneeddiversebooks #representationmatters #incarceration #blackmomsblog #blackgirlsblog #brotherhood💪 #raisingourboys #teachersofig #alaac18 #scbwi #swimteam

Another edition of books I didn’t know about until I went to #alaac18 - aren’t you just intrigued by this cover? I overheard one of the people in the booth say they were maybe redoing the cover because feedback was that it came across as MG but honestly I kind of love it!! WHAT do you think?
..............
Summary:
In the lower wards of Kahnzoka, the great port city of the Blessed Empire, eighteen-year-old ward boss Isoka comes to collect when there's money owing. When her ability to access the Well of Combat is discovered by the Empire—an ability she should have declared and placed at His Imperial Majesty's service—she's sent on an impossible mission: steal Soliton, a legendary ghost ship—a ship from which no one has ever returned. If she fails, her sister’s life is forfeit. ...........

Do you read more fantasy or contemporary?
.........
Normally I would say contemporary, but I think so far this year I’ve read way more fantasy!
.........
This is one of the books I hadn’t heard a thing about until I went to #alaac18 - After talking to the publicist I knew I had to read it! Check out the summary below and get this on your TBR!
.............
Summary:
For Teodora DiSangro, a mafia don’s daughter, family is fate.

All her life, Teodora has hidden the fact that she secretly turns her family’s enemies into music boxes, mirrors, and other decorative objects. After all, everyone in Vinalia knows that stregas—wielders of magic—are figures out of fairytales. Nobody believes they’re real.

Then the Capo, the land’s new ruler, sends poisoned letters to the heads of the Five Families that have long controlled Vinalia. Four lie dead and Teo’s beloved father is gravely ill. To save him, Teo must travel to the capital as a DiSangro son—not merely disguised as a boy, but transformed into one.
Enter Cielo, a strega who can switch back and forth between male and female as effortlessly as turning a page in a book. Teo and Cielo journey together to the capital, and Teo struggles to master her powers and to keep her growing feelings for Cielo locked in her heart. As she falls in love with witty, irascible Cielo, Teo realizes how much of life she’s missed by hiding her true nature. But she can’t forget her mission, and the closer they get to the palace, the more sinister secrets they uncover about what’s really going on in their beloved country—and the more determined Teo becomes to save her family at any cost.

Happy Monday! Today I’m spending the day by reading and writing reviews. One of the books I need to review is THE LADY’S GUIDE TO PETTICOATS AND PIRACY. I’ve been a @themackenzilee fan since her debut and I remember reading GGTVAV waaaayyy early. I thought I’d continue the tradition by reading my ARC right away and I am happy to report that LADY’S GUIDE is just wonderful and honestly, a perfect sequel. I can’t wait for more people to read it so we can discuss! ✨🗡️________________________________________

I traveled a LOT at the end of June. Starting with #alaac18 in NOLA then hitting 5 cities in 5 days to meet booksellers, librarians, and bloggers in Raleigh, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, and Seattle. It was a beautiful, amazing trip filled with beautiful, amazing people who let me talk about #Seafire for hours! Bonus: I got to meet my agent! Double bonus: I remembered at the very last minute to snap a pic and document the occasion. 😂 Thank you to everyone who came out to each of the various stops. 💖 Next up: #SDCC2018! Details to come.

“Her own face is the enemy.”
How has your summer been?
.
.
.
.
In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.
But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.
As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection...because one wrong move could lead to her death.

Happy 4th of July!!!💥🎉
Do you have any plans for today?
.
.
.
.
When smallpox kills her parents, Camille Durbonne must find a way to provide for her frail, naive sister while managing her volatile brother. Relying on petty magic—la magie ordinaire—Camille painstakingly transforms scraps of metal into money to buy the food and medicine they need. But when the coins won’t hold their shape and her brother disappears with the family’s savings, Camille must pursue a richer, more dangerous mark: the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

With dark magic her mother forbade her to use, Camille transforms herself into the ‘Baroness de la Fontaine’ and is swept up into life at the Palace of Versailles, where aristocrats both fear and hunger for la magie. Though Camille's resentment of the rich is at at odds with the allure of glamour and excess, when she meets a handsome inventor she believes liberty and love may finally be possible.
But la magie has its costs. When a scheming courtier blackmails her and Lazare’s affections shift, Camille loses control of her secrets. Then revolution erupts, and she must choose—love or loyalty, democracy or aristocracy, reality or la magie—before Paris burns…
