Lauren Skidmore grew up in Kansas, with stints in Ohio and New York, and currently lives in Utah. She attended Brigham Young University where she earned a BA in English Teaching with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language and Japanese. She then spent a year in Japan teaching and travelling. She hasn’t made it to Europe yet, but it’s on the list and has been to 30 states in the U.S. so far. When she’s not exploring new places, you can probably find her on the internet with fifteen windows open and looking at just one more thing before actually getting something done.

And because I know you’re probably not even reading this sentence, let’s get straight to it. The title to the next book is:

WHAT IS LOST

And the release date is March 10, 2015!

Wow, what a book. At first I thought I wasn't going to read this one because the trigger/content warning list is quite long (child rape, drugged rape, gore, drug use, self harm, and more), but I love Leigh Bardugo and the reviews were all so glowing. ...more
