Hello again, everyone! After a brief little break (it is summer, after all) we’ve started getting back into reading and posting again. With all the craziness that is vacations, work schedules, and even summer classes, this hasn’t been the most relaxing month ever. However, we have some really great stuff coming up soon! We have a lot of cool new ideas we’ll be working out the kinks on, and some ARC reviews that we absolutely cannot wait to publish and gush over. But that’s not the point of this!
Mostly, I wanted to tell you all about the incredible book signing I attended for the release of Megan Abbott’s newest title, Give Me Your Hand. Though an adult novelist, her books have often been co-opted by the YA community thanks to how often she places young women at the forefront of her stories. We’ve talked a lot about her books on this blog as well, because seriously, if you’re not reading them, you’re missing out big time.
As an English and Women’s and Gender Studies major who also happens to be obsessed with psychological thrillers in all formats, I’ve been a huge fan of her books for a long time. And now I can say with certainty that not only is she a fantastic author, but is also one of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. She even recognized my face from a tweet I sent her upwards of two years ago! Seriously, she was incredible.
