Lev Grossman must know something about magic. He made authors Neil Gaiman, Terry Brooks, Erin Morgenstern and Rainbow Rowell appear in the book trailer for his new book The Magician's Land. How did he do it? They are all fans. He just asked.
The third book in The Magician's Trilogy will appear in our room full of books on August 5.
Beads in Motion by Marcia DeCoster
I am a seed bead jewelry making fanatic. This book met my seed bead obsession on many levels. The majority of this book is made for the experienced beader but a creative newbie can find fun and intriguing patterns for their seed bead indulgence. There is an element of motion as a challenge to each beaded piece with excellent instructions and photos to support and fuel your creative confidence. A fun and beautifully illustrated book and I can’t decide which project to do first.
Shooting Victoria: Madness, Mayhem, and the Rebirth of the British Monarchy by Paul Thomas Murphy
Many historians have made the argument that without Victoria, the British monarchy would have fallen like so many others in the revolutions that swept Europe in 1840s. This text takes the interesting approach in analyzing history through the eight assassination attempts made on the Queen during her 64-year reign. To read about how a few madmen and criminals challenged Victoria and changed Britain, pick up this book about one of Britain’s favorite monarchs.
The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore
Hard for me not to adore this book! The book has strong female friends wading through their 50’s dealing with life's complex relationships while living in a unique town with an embracing community. It is honest, sad, and has a big serving of hope with redemption. I never eat at buffets, too much food for me, but if Earl's was in my neighborhood I would be vying for a seat.
