Happy #FridayReads day, reader friends! Here's which books Talia and I are curling up with this weekend:
A STREET CAT NAMED BOB: And How He Saved My Life
by James Bowen
This heartwarming true story of a street musician and the ginger cat who saved his life is now available stateside after hitting bestseller lists from Turkey to Thailand! It's the perfect next read for fans of DEWEY: The Small-Town Library Cat That Changed the World.
"A beautiful, never maudlin story of second chances for both man and beast and a poignant testimony to how much caring for someone—or some feline—can give you renewed direction where you're down and out. Understandably, this was a best-seller in England." —Booklist (starred)
DREAMS OF THE GOLDEN AGE
by Carrie Vaughn
This is the stand-alone sequel to the 2012 Alex Awards official nominee, AFTER THE GOLDEN AGE. DREAMS OF THE GOLDEN AGE follows Anna, whose father is a telepath and mother is Commerce City's most powerful businessperson. She’s the granddaughter of the city’s two most famous superheroes and the company car drops her off at the gate of her exclusive high school every morning. Privacy is one luxury she doesn’t have which makes hiding her burgeoning superpowers from her parents nearly impossible.
"[A] warm homage to and deconstruction of classic comic books. [...] For readers who admire Lois Lane more than Superman." —Kirkus Reviews on AFTER THE GOLDEN AGE
A STREET CAT NAMED BOB is available now from St. Martin's Press and DREAMS OF THE GOLDEN AGE will be available in January from Tor Books.
