April 15, 2017

The Queen of Blood, by Sarah Beth Durst, begins a new series set in a world where the queen controls spirits that serve humankind - but want to destroy them. In the first book, Daleina trains to be an heir while there are signs that something is wrong at the very top.

I was elected to the 2019 Newbery Selection Committee!!! This means I will be reading like crazy during 2018 to help choose the most distinguished contribution to American children's literature written that year. I am so excited!!! A huge thank you to those who gave me your vote!

Happy Reading!
