Self-proclaimed bibliophile Vera of Luxury Reading has stopped in at The Children’s Book Review with her marvelous list of hotly anticipated reads this winter by some of our favorite authors (Lauren Oliver! Laurie Faria Stolarz!). So build a fire and snuggle under a blanket with a cup of cocoa and one of these exciting new novels. Thanks to Vera for ensuring a warm holiday season to us all!

Lauren Oliver is enormously talented yet such a humble and kind person. She’s been writing stories since she was a five-year-old and landed her first book deal at age 25. Lauren quickly followed the triumph of her break-out novel Before I Fall with another YA sensation Delirium. She has most recently published Pandemonium, the second installment in her Dystopian trilogy. Not one to rest on her laurels, Lauren also wrote a brilliant middle grade novel Liesl & Po. She is currently on tour to promote Pandemonium. Check out tour dates in your area to meet Lauren and buy your copy of Pandemonium before all the copies fly off the shelves.
