It's Friday and that means that Talia and I want to share with you the books that we're currently reading (both of which happen to have the most epic and bold covers).
This week Talia's reading...
THE INVENTION OF MURDER by Judith Flanders
Flanders retells the gruesome stories of many different types of murder—both famous and obscure—from the crimes (and myths) of Sweeney Todd and Jack the Ripper to the tragedies of the murdered Marr family in London’s East End; Burke and Hare and their bodysnatching business in Edinburgh; and Greenacre, who transported his dismembered fiancée around town by omnibus... as you might have guessed Talia's loving it.
This week Ali's reading...
THE BONE SEASON by Samantha Shannon
In the year 2059 several major world cities are under the control of a security force called Scion. Paige Mahoney works in the criminal underworld of Scion London, part of a secret cell known as the Seven Seals. The work she does is unusual: scouting for information by breaking into others people's miiiiiiinds! Ali has been reading this one with a homemade foil hat on her head.
