Julie C. Dao (www.juliedao.com) is a proud Vietnamese-American who was born in upstate New York. She studied medicine in college, but came to realize blood and needles were her Kryptonite. By day, she worked in science news and research; by night, she wrote books about heroines unafraid to fight for their dreams, which inspired her to follow her passion of becoming a published author. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns is her debut novel. Julie lives in New England. Follow her on Twitter @jules_writes.

Julie is represented by Tamar Rydzinski of the Laura Dail Literary Agency.

This was very witty and a lot of fun! I love shared universe stories when it comes to Victorian Gothic tales, and this one features all of the daughters of the fictional scientists you know: Moreau, Rappacini, Jekyll, Hyde...

July '18 "Underrated & Unappreciated" Book ?

July is fast approaching, and so it’s time to vote for next’s month Underrated & Unappreciated book. Originally the books set for July were said to be final. However, the book chosen for Underrated and Unappreciated, (The Poppy War - R.F Kuang) is still a new release. It came out last month, May 1st. And as the rules go, all books must have been on market for a whole tree months prior. This rule was to assure that everyone had an easy time going about acquiring the books. New releases can prove a struggle to find.

That said many of us, myself included, were looking forward to reading Poppy War.

So after some consideration, I've decided to put it in to vote. All in favor with continuing along and reading The Poppy War - R.F Kuang.

Or

Those who'd rather read a book a little more accessible. For which I picked two highly underrated books.

- Forest of a Thousand Lanterns - Julie C. Dao

- Morbito: The Guardian of the Spirit - Nahoko Uehashi


Poll will last a week. Book with the most votes win. Please vote considerable.

Note: Shall The Poppy War lose the vote, we will be having a group buddy read of the book. So no worries to those who've already went about retrieving the book.

“There is something called the rapture of the deep, and it refers to what happens when a deep-sea diver spends too much time at the bottom of the ocean and can't tell which way is up. When he surfaces, he's liable to have a condition called the bends, where the body can't adapt to the oxygen levels in the atmosphere. All of this happens to me when I surface from a great book.”
Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

“I am a creature of my pen. My pen is the best of me.”
A.S. Byatt, Possession

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
Ray Bradbury
