Tuesday, Ana’s back with a review of YA novel Also Known As Rowan Pohi by Ralph Fletcher.

On Wednesday, we have a joint review of The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson, the highly anticipated sequel to the much-loved Mistborn trilogy!

And Friday, we have a joint review of dystopian YA novel Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, followed by a guest post from the author and a giveaway!

Saturday, we close out the week with a long overdue From the Page to the Screen special feature: we will have a review of both the book and film Water for Elephants, followed by an interview with the author of the book, Sara Gruen!

Until tomorrow, we remain…

    I cannot tell you how COMPLETELY and STINKINGLY JEALOUS I am that you’re going to get to do an interview with Sara Gruen. I love Water for Elephants more than I can explain to you and I want to steal that entire feature and make off with it into the night. 😯 – Elle
