Veteran’s Day Reading List

Tomorrow, November 11th, marks Veteran’s Day, which was originally celebrated as Armistice Day beginning in 1919, to commemorate the end of World War I. It is being observed today in much of the United States.  Coincidentally, today is also the Marine Corp’s 242nd birthday.  HOORAH.  With so many military celebrations today, we thought it would be good to cook up a themed reading list.  We have had a difficult time finding books that directly deal with US wars, so we decided to ask and expert for help.  Gwen Katz recently published Among The Red Stars earlier this year, a YA historical fiction inspired true events.  The Night Witches were a squadron of female Russian pilots and navigators who gave the Nazi’s absolute hell.  We figured since she’d research World War II, she may have some recommendations.  What she delivered is one of the most thoughtful book lists we’ve ever seen. Find out a little more about Gwen and her book, as well as check out her incredible reading list after the jump.

All the Wind In The World Interview + Giveaway

All The Wind In The World was one of the most surprising reads of 2017. Set in the near-distant future, amid severe climate change, a young girl, Sarah Jac, and boy, James Holt, in love, travel working the maguey fields that line the Southwest.  When an accident puts them on the run, they end up at the Real Marvelous ranch. They think they might be safe, but the ranch’s magic and mystery soon begin to reveal themselves as more than Sarah Jac and James bargained for.  This story unravels so uniquely and was so finely crafted by Samantha Mabry.  Her sweeping language made the elements of magic and the Western setting come to life and the ending left me absolutely stunned.  And I wasn’t the only one. All The Wind In The World is a 2017 National Book Award nominee2017 National Book Award nominee and has 4 starred trade reviews, among being on numerous lists, and I anticipate seeing this book on many year-end lists.  Check out more about the book and the author after the jump.

8 Ways To Support An Author (On A Budget)

As a book blogger I obviously appreciate books and the real life humans who make them. We all know the best way to support a book is showing up at your favorite book store each Tuesday and BUYING BOOKS. But for every book my budget can afford there are about 100 more I can’t afford to take home with me. So we asked authors what are some ways we can show them support without breaking the bank. Naturally these brilliant, beautiful people had thoughts….
