floating city
by Diego Molano Rodriguez

Have you ever been accused of “living in the clouds?” If you’re a total space cadet like me, this is probably a constant refrain from parents, teachers, bosses, and significant others. Well, if our heads are always in clouds, maybe we should look for a city in the clouds to live in! In honor of […]

Is There Such a Thing As Too Creepy?

by Diego Molano Rodriguez

Does anyone else remember the book In a Dark, Dark Room? This early reader was a staple in 1990’s elementary school libraries and Scholastic book fairs. With its eerie stories, muted but warm color palette, and archetypal stories, it was definitely the source of more than a few of my childhood nightmares. Though every single […]

BBF-Cat
by Catherine Hayden

It’s true that I don’t like books that are heavy on romance, but I’m only human and even I am not immune to falling in love within the pages of a great book. Of course I’ve picked […]

February is a great time to celebrate love and the important relationships in our lives. But between the chocolates and roses and ideas about what romance should be, we don’t always talk about what happens when a relationship goes bad.

Date Ideas Readers Will Love

Dating
by The Riveted Team

Why settle for dinner and a movie when you could be having a literary adventure? Books challenge us to step out of everyday life. We visit the jungles of equatorial Africa or explore distant galaxies. We live for a while as a castaway or a pirate or a wizard-in-training. Why stick to local dating when […]
