Happy #BookBday (2/24/14 Edition)

Oh what a lovely day for a #BookBday! Today we celebrate:

A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab
A February 2015 LibraryReads pick! “Schwab creates an ingenious set of nesting alternate Londons in this imaginative, well-crafted fantasy… Confident prose and marvelous touches-a chameleon coat, a scarlet river of magic, a piratical antiheroine-bring exuberant life to an exhilarating adventure among the worlds.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

EMPIRE RISING by Rick Campbell
After a decade-long secret military build-up, China launches a sneak attack on the U.S. Pacific fleet in this page-turning sequel to THE TRIDENT DECEPTION. “The story rockets around the globe, and the pages cannot turn fast enough. The characters are just as intriguing as the shiny tech, and Campbell’s expertise in the navy from his years in service adds a realistic feel to the proceedings. Readers who miss Clancy will be eager to devour Campbell.” — Booklist

WOLF HALL & BRING UP THE BODIES: The Stage Adaptation by Hilary Mantel, adapted by Mike Poulton
Poulton adapts the Man Booker Prize-winning novels for the stage (Wolf Hall Parts One & Two graces Broadway starting March 20, 2015). This trade paperback edition also contains a substantial set of notes by Mantel on each of the principal characters, offering a unique insight into the plays.

Mantel Wins the Man Booker Prize… Again!

Major congratulations to Hilary Mantel who is one of only three Man Booker Prize-winning authors ever to have won the prize more than once! She also the first author ever to win with a sequel.

Yesterday she was awarded the prize for BRING UP THE BODIES, her second novel exploring Tudor history through the eyes of Thomas Cromwell.

The Man Booker Prize website said,

"Her resuscitation of Thomas Crowell–and with him the historical novel–is one of the great achievements of modern literature."

Hear, hear!

Your patrons (and yourselves, for that matter!) no longer have any excuse not to start in on this rich historical series. As the Man Booker Prize website said,

"Perhaps the real object of envy is not the winner–she thoroughly deserves her triumph–but the readers who have yet to open BRING UP THE BODIES. They have just won a prize too."

Read the full article on TheManBookerPrize.com.
