Other Good Stuff

There's an exhibit opening at the Smithsonian in July that looks really cool--"Fantastic Worlds: Science and Fiction, 1780-1910."

A list of recentish scary/horror mg books at The Hiding Spot

Someone was looking for time travel books with diversity, so I pulled together a list of mg and ya titles.


  1. The Smithsonian exhibition does look interesting. I wonder if I can make it to DC to visit my brother before October...

  2. I reviewed The Sound of Life and Everything a speculative fiction novle by Krista Van Dolzer.

  3. I'll be in DC in August - I'll try to remember that exhibit!
