Book of the Week: August 30th, 2014

Here is the first installment in a new weekly series, Book of the Week! In which one of us gives a book suggestion, and you readers go and...well, read.* We may also include certain challenges referring to said books, depending on how many people comment with interest in our suggested reading.

In other announcements, The Draconian Letters will be coming to a close very soon, even within the next week perhaps, as we prepare our series Water Under the Bridge, coming out at the end of October. And, speaking of the end of October, feel free to tell us in the comments if you will participating in this year's NaNoWriMo event! One of us (hint: me [hint: J]) may possibly be joining up to write another novel. I'm not so sure about the other two.

Anyway, here we go!


The Screaming Staircase
by Jonathan Stroud

Genre: Fantasy/Supernatural
Category: Teen/YA

If you haven't read Jonathan Stroud yet, what have you been doing with your life? The writer of the Bartimaeus Trilogy and several other novels kicks off a new series with the extremely exciting novel, The Screaming Staircase. His tale of ghost-busting teens exploring haunted mansions for a living will have you on the edge of your seat with shrill excitement. It also sets up nicely for the 2nd installment, The Whispering Skull, out September 16th. Below we will link you to both books on Amazon.
