    Thanks for the Dystopian August shout out 🙂 I’ll be reviewing A Long, Long Sleep this coming week too, so I can’t wait to read Thea’s thoughts on it!

    I’m looking forward to all of next week’s reviews. I picked up A Long, Long Sleep at BEA this year and haven’t decided whether I want to read it. I also picked up Frost, the sequel to Stork, at BEA, so I’d love to know if Stork is worth reading.

    I’m especially excited for the review of A Long, Long Sleep. I don’t think I’ve heard of it until now, but it sounds really neat.
