Check out some of these titles available to our Read & Review Club members to read and review before their release!
The Southern Independent Bookseller's Alliance, or SIBA, choses six books each year from the best in southern literature. One title is chosen from each category: Children's, Young Adult, Cooking, Fiction, and Nonfiction. The titles are nominated by southern, independent booksellers (like me) and their customers (like you). While we are all reading globally, it is nice to have a regional minded award list compiled by the people who are at the forefront of localmindedness. I look forward to reading this year's SIBA award winners that I have not encountered yet.
So the Paper Towns film comes out next month, and, as I did with The Fault in Our Stars when it came out last summer, I’ve been planning to reread Paper Towns before going to see it in theaters. My goal was to wait until we were a bit closer to the movie’s release, but that didn’t work out. I’ve been at a loss recently for what to read (I’m still having a book hangover from finishing the first two books in Samantha Shannon’s Bone Season series), and I just wanted something kind of fun and hopeful.
