So not a lot of books for me this past week, but perhaps some really good ones! My fabulous mother went to the library for me yesterday (the things parents will do when you're sick) and picked up some books that I had on hold there. I'm also currently reading "The Betrayal of Maggie Blair" by Elizabeth Laird which is a fascinating book set in Scotland about a girl that just can't catch a break.

Here Lies Arthur
Scholastic Press, 2008
If Gwynna and Myrrdin's trickery is discovered, what will become of Gwynna? Worse, what will become of Arthur? Only the endless battling, the mighty belief of men, and the sheer cunning of one remarkable girl will tell.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

I am starting a new feature called "Ask an Author". I haven't done author interviews in a while but I'm hoping to pick back up. And so, I had a thought that wouldn't it be great if my followers could submit questions to some of their favorite authors if I get to interview them? And in the same stroke, it will also give me a list of potential authors to interview!
Check out the "Ask an Author" page at the top of the blog to find out how. :)
