Book Buzz

  • I keep running into Julia Bertagna’s young adult fantasy novel Exodus. The book has actually become a best seller to rival Harry Potter in Great Britain. Although published in 2002, the first in a trilogy is just starting to make waves in the U.S. and will be released here on April 1.
  • I’ve read about Lauren Groff’s The Monsters of Templeton in both USA Today and Amazon’s “Best Books of February.” The book features a real monster, which makes me a bit nervous, but USA Today called Groff “a talent to watch and celebrate,” so the book may be worth checking out.
