Wicked Autumn

"November comes 
And November goes, 
With the last red berries 
And the first white snows.

With night coming early, 
And dawn coming late, 
And ice in the bucket 
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn 
And the kettles sing, 
And earth sinks to rest 
Until next spring."
- Elizabeth Coatsworth

Dear members,

While our time with "The Night Circus" has come to an end, another month arrives and with it, brings a whole different theme.
November certainly has an air of mystery to it, considering that by now the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder. As such, our selection for this month will help get us through these chillier nights to come.
Our winning pick for our November selection?


It has already garnered awards and great reviews, including being listed by Library Journal as the Best Mystery of 2011. Great stuff!

From her website:

Happy reading everyone!
