book cover of the day

When thinking of what I want to read next I got the notion to look up what Maile Meloy has done recently. Turns out she’s releasing a new book on my birthday! It’s her first book for young readers, and I’m not sure it will be completely to my taste (russian spies and potions ...), but I’m really liking the cover. What I would most like Meloy to write is another book about the Santerre family, that she’s written about in Liars and Saints and A Family Daughter. I loved both of them a lot! Not to mention her utterly brilliant short stories in Half in Love especially, some of which I still think of, years and years after I read them.
