What We’re Reading Now, February 26th Edition
We’re putting together our Spring Reading Lists and daydreaming of vacation. Here are a few books out this week that just might inspire you to do the same!
New York Times bestselling mother-daughter writing duo P.C. and Kristin Cast (authors of the House of Night phenomenon) are back with the first book in a brand new paranormal series, and it’s as action-packed as you’d expect.
When Foster Stewart meets Tate “Nighthawk” Taylor during a deadly tornado, they awaken a not-so-natural ability–the power to control air. As they deal with the tragic loss of loved ones, they also face the realization that they’re the first in a group of teens who were genetically altered before birth to bond with the elements. But that’s not all–they’re being hunted.
This new series has been described as House of Night meets X Men. In other words, it does not disappoint. Don’t forget to check out our exclusive Q&A with the Casts!Buy Now
Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi launched his eponymous label in 1987. The award-winning line is known for its colorful styles and classic silhouettes. But ever since he shot to fame in the late 1980s, the man Isaac Mizrahi has been a closed book. That is, until now.
In this new memoir, Isaac Mizrahi offers an honest and moving look at his life thus far, from growing up in a sheltered Syrian Jewish Orthodox family, to his struggles with depression and weight, to what it was like to be a gay man during the AIDS epidemic.
