I’m happy to report that we’ve got a newcomer on this week’s best sellers list, and it’s a book that’s betting getting a ton of buzz: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.
But what I’m really, really excited to share with you is that on the paperback list, Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower landed in the top 10 for the first time! As you might know, it’s being made into a movie and our very own Sara got to visit the set in Pittsburgh when it was filming. Be sure to look for her exclusives closer to the release date.
