Current Mood: sleepy
Current Song: Fantastic Toys and Corduroys by Duncan Sheik

I am a readergirl! Are you?

The August issue of readergirlz is ripe for the reading! This month's spotlighted title is Ironside by Holly Black.

Mark your calendars! The readergirlz will host a live chat with Holly Black on Thursday, August 23rd at 7 PM Pacific / 10 PM Eastern. The chat will last for about an hour. Holly will talk about the joys and frustrations she faces while writing fantasy. This will be your chance to ask her all those questions you've been saving up, and to explore her tantalizing faery world. Share your fairytales with us!

Many of the readergirlz divas and the postergirlz advisory council are fans of the fantasy genre. We have drawn up this list of recommended reads:

Fiction:
The Ferryman by Christopher Golden
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Faerie Wars by Herbie Brennan
Into the Wild by Sarah Beth Durst

Non-Fiction:
At the Bottom of the Garden: A Dark History of Fairies, Hobgoblins, Nymphs, and Other Troublesome Things by Diane Purkiss

If you have read these books, or if you'd like to learn more about them, please participate in our recommended reads discussion at the readergirlz forum!

Wowza. Are you going to read on the flight, or are you a flight-sleeper?
