I have no plans for a digital version. Maybe at some point, but in the meantime, let people stir their sticks and go to an actual bookstore rather than a digital one.
Lelia’s New Obsession: THE 5th WAVE by Rick Yancey
Much like the extraterrestrial invaders in this post-apocalyptic thriller, The 5th Wave will psychologically batter you until you inevitably succumb to it, letting go of everything you thought you knew, and relinquishing any hope of fully understanding the madness and horrors of Yancey’s alien Armageddon. The 5th Wave is an unflinching portrait of war, encompassing both the worst and the best of humanity.
I would liken the experience of reading this book to walking on razor-thin ice, knowing that any second it might break, plunging you into icy darkness. The 5th Wave feels heavy, like the pages themselves are weighed down by the words of the story. But the writing style and the endearingly sarcastic heroine—defiant in the face of absolute despair—make it compulsively readable despite the horrors that are depicted.

Buying from independents is in our own best interest. It assures that no one large entity will control what’s available to us as readers. Freedom—and it does come down to this—is all about choice.
THE NEW CATCHING FIRE TRAILER IS HERE OH MY GOD STOP EVERYTHING AND WATCH THIS A THOUSAND TIMES.
Reading fiction is important. It is a vital means of imagining a life other than our own, which in turn makes us more empathetic beings. Following complex story lines stretches our brains beyond the 140 characters of sound-bite thinking, and staying within the world of a novel gives us the ability to be quiet and alone, two skills that are disappearing faster than the polar icecaps.
