John Scritchfield spends his days wrangling three future readers and his nights wearing costumes and pretending to hit people with blunt weaponry. There is very little money it. He holds an MFA in Acting, which he puts to use by teaching at a Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan and as the Creative Director for the Calvin Theatre CompanyIn his free time, he enjoys playing Dungeons & Dragons, reading, writing, and spending time with his wife, three children, and two cats (Jasnah and Vin). Oh, he's also the new Booknest Admin.

Erin Swan’s YA fantasy debut Bright Star follows Andra, a slave girl left mute by a traumatic event early in the story. When her master’s son is slain by assassins, she finds herself caught up in a rebellion against the corrupt government. If the rebellion is to succeed, Andra will need to find her voice, realize her potential, and become the leader Paerolia needs. Luckily, she has the help of a dragon.

The Well of Ascension is Brandon Sanderson’s second Mistborn novel and a genuinely awesome read. Following the staggering conclusion to The Final Empire, Well of Ascension picks up some time later with the city in a state of unrest. The Lord Ruler – the man believed to be god incarnate – is dead. Unfortunately, the man who masterminded the whole affair, Mistborn Murder Jesus…errr…Kelsier, is also dead. The rebuilding effort therefore has fallen into the laps of Kelsier’s protégé Vin, King Elend Venture, and the rest of Kelsier’s crew.

Alex Raizman’s Weird Theology is…weird…in the best possible way.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a god? Well, Ryan Smith doesn’t need to wonder, because he is one now. After being watched by an invisible and unspeaking man in a suit for his entire life, Ryan is something of a wreck. This man has followed Ryan for as long as he can remember, never speaking but constantly taking notes, and Ryan’s inability to make anyone believe him has ruined every relationship he’s ever had. So he’s understandably perplexed when after discovering the last nanoverse the man in the suit peaces out.
