Not Just Another Walk in the Woods


In November 2013, Levison Wood set out on an improbable and dangerous undertaking: walking the 4,000 miles of the Nile River from the trickle of its Rwandan headwaters to its Egyptian delta, a trek that would take him through six countries, strife and civil wars, swamps and sandstorms, thousands of years of history, and personal tragedy.

An Addictive and Dickensian Genre-Bender: Dan Vyleta’s “Smoke”


On a sunny and unusually warm spring day in Seattle, Dan Vyleta and I sat down with iced coffees and talked about his new literary genre-breaker. Smoke is set in an alternative vision of nineteenth-century England, where a person’s morality can be determined just by looking at him or her.

YA Wednesday: Tips from a Star-Touched Queen


I'm really enjoying the run of recent YA novels (series, really) about young women thrust into positions of power in foreign lands, who endure serious hardships, romantic entanglements, and agonizing choices.  Maya, the protagonist of The Star-Touched Queen is just such a woman.  Author Roshani Chokshi's debut features strong world-building and a blend of folklore and magic that reminds me of The Wrath and the Dawn and The Winner's Curse.

The Best Mysteries & Thrillers of May


If I had to describe the five books I've selected to write about from our list of the Best Mystery, Thriller & Suspense of May, I'd have to call it "Southern Gothic-meets-Gone Girl-meets-the Apocalypse." If that's not a gumbo recipe for thriller success, I don't know what is.

Summer Reading: We're Going to Need a Bigger Bag


Sometimes you just can’t help using a cliché. So, with beach brain kicking in a little early this year, let me say....

Smokin' Numbers: A Soundtrack for Joe Hill's "The Fireman"


Joe Hill's The Fireman is one of our picks for the best books of the month for May. While writing The Fireman, Joe Hill listened to a number of songs, and he's compiled his playlist below.

Something to Crow About


Full disclosure: I've always really disliked crows.  So when I got to the part of Elizabeth Church's debut novel, The Atomic Weight of Love*, where the main character, Meridian, decides to focus her sharp, scientific mind on those noisy, trash-picking creatures, I thought, seriously!

Weekend Reading


In this edition of Weekend Reading, the untold story of a storied magazine editor, books about struggle and triumph, and Alan Cumming makes us feel like we should be doing more with our lives (or maybe that's just me).

Mothers and Daughters, a Card Game, and Bridging Generations


My mother used to play Bridge weekly with her three closest friends, women I called “Aunt” even though we bore no blood relation.

Is He Scruff Enough? More Beards Appear on Romance Heroes


A manly bit of scruff on cheek and chin has always been de rigueur for romance heroes, but more and more I'm seeing square-jawed cover models with, well, beards.

All the Goaty Details


At the very least, you could say that Thomas Thwaites has a unique relationship with the modern world.

Some books just plain work – no matter the format. As the list of winners of the Audie Awards, given by AudioFile magazine, proves.

“A Core Goal Is to Keep Readers Guessing”


Sean Danker’s new sci-fi novel starts with a man awakening from cryo-sleep to find himself with an admiral's rank but not his uniform.

"If They Drown, They Will at Least Drown Together"


Teenage angst, anyone? Surely you had some. Surely some of us still do. In her new novel, Girls on Fire, the writer formerly known for her YA work, bursts out with a chilling, creepy tale of two best friends who would do anything to each other.
