Talia's Reading: 

THE FIRE WITNESS by Lars Kepler (July, 2013)

You may remember Lars Kepler, the pseudonymous Swedish couple who charmed us all at the Mystery Authors Revealed Panel at PLA this year. Well, they're back with their third thriller after THE HYPNOTIST and THE NIGHTMARE!

Ali's Almost Done With:

A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS: A MEMOIR OF LADY TRENT by Marie Brennan (February, 2013)

I'm having way too much fun reading this book. These dragons are wild, fierce, and scary (read: they would make atrocious house pets). Also, there are mysterious goings-on involving smugglers and petrified dragon bones that I'm itching to get to the bottom of!

Expect to hear more about this one in the next Uncharted Pages...

Ali's About to Start:

WE KILLED: THE RISE OF WOMEN IN AMERICAN COMEDY by Yael Kohen, contributing editor at Marie Claire (October, 2012)

There are fifty years of stories about iconic comediennes in this book. I can't wait!
