  1. Meg!!! I’m all breathless for BLACKBIRD as well! And a huge Maggie Stiefvater fan. My favorite was THE SCORPIO RACES. Read it 3 times hoping to fold myself into those glorious pages.

    • Thank you, Darcy! I’m dying over The Raven Boys series, even though I know it’s going to make me cry. Oh, Maggie. Her books are such a luscious pleasures to read. I hope I never, ever meet her, because I would fangirl into a puddle on the floor.

  2. A WRINKLE IN TIME was totally my favorite book for years. Actually, pretty much anything L’Engle was.

    Can’t wait to read BLACK BIRD, it sounds wonderful!

      • Oooh, my favorite by L’Engle was A WIND IN THE DOOR, but I loved them all…and I can tell BLACK BIRD is going to be a harbinger of awesome
