If there’s one thing I can truly appreciate, it’s a kick-ass female lead in a fantasy series. Katniss Everdeen. Zélie Adebola. Feyre Archeron. Just to name a few. And now I’ve got a new one to add to the list: Winnie Wednesday from The Luminaries! We were thrilled to help Tor Books promote this heart-pounding fantasy from bestselling author Susan Dennard.

AdBiblio Case Study: The Light in Hidden Places & Bluebird from Scholastic
I, like so many, am a complete sucker for a WWII era book. Every story of bravery and courage, especially when deeply researched and based on real historical events, is a harrowing yet uplifting reminder of the extraordinary heroes that have come before us. NY Times bestselling author Sharon Cameron is fantastic at writing such stories, like in her YA novels The Light in Hidden Places and Bluebird. We loved helping Scholastic use targeted book advertising to spread the word about these inspiring reads!

Take a gorgeous beach locale, toss in some family drama with a bit of romance and betrayal, and you’ve got yourself the perfect vacation read. The Great Godden by bestselling, award-winning author Meg Rosoff checks all the boxes. AdBiblio online advertising helped Candlewick spread the word about this “taut page-turner” (People).
AdBiblio Case Study: Revenge of the Sluts from Wattpad
The Slut Squad is fighting back!
In the age of digital privacy and the #metoo movement, Revenge of the Sluts is the book that the world needs right now. With more than 406,000 reads on Wattpad, it’s no surprise that Natalie Walton’s debut is an addictive story that will have readers rooting for the “Slut Squad”. We were thrilled to help Wattpad spread the word about this feminist YA novel!

AdBiblio Case Study: A Heart So Fierce and Broken from Bloomsbury
Find the heir, win the crown. Win the crown, save the kingdom.
There’s something about an epic YA fantasy that is so addicting that I end up never leaving my bed and reading ALL weekend. The Cursebreaker Series from Brigid Kemmerer is no exception. And the fact that it’s a classic fairy tale retelling of Beauty and the Beast makes it even better! We were so excited to help Bloomsbury spread the word for the second book in the series, A Heart so Fierce and Broken.
