We interrupt our usual Tuesday Twitter review to announce that Sarah and Kristan (photographer) have officially met Lish McBride--author of HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER and NECROMANCING THE STONE.  If you haven't read anything by this Morris finalist, you're missing out.  Urban Fantasy is not usually my first pick for genre, but these books remind me of the best of Buffy with the humor, smarts, variety of supernatural creatures, and great characters.  So good, wish I'd written them!!  (There are some rumors about that the series has been optioned for television, which would be perfect, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up.)

Other authors on the tour stop included (r. to l.) Ann Aguirre (ENCLAVE, OUTPOST), Elizabeth Fama (MONSTROUS BEAUTY), and the lovely Marissa Meyer (CINDER) whose very first reading was here in Cincy (yeah, we were there.)

On with the tweets!

It's hopeless


Oh, you funny, funny people:

This time of year, you get tweets like this:

Our favorite tweet this week:

Ever borrowed a book that you "forgot" to give back?  Do you lend out your books?  Have a great week!

- Amie Kaufman
- Leigh Bardugo
- Margaret Stohl / Libba Bray
- Jennifer Laughran (that is SO ME)

No books that I've "forgotten" to give back... Oh wait, I take that back! THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES by Sue Monk Kidd. Shhh... ;)

@Kristan...the Jennifer Laughran quote was for both of us!! Now if she could just represent our writing...

I've never forgotten to give back a book. I think I read faster knowing it's not mine. I used to only be able to read books that I owned because what if I fell in love with them? A new copy wasn't the same. Now there's just too many.
