Cornelia Read's newest out now!

Author Cornelia Read has a new book about, her third about Madeline Dare. I LOVE this woman's books! Insightful, so very, very smart, the character is likable, dry wit, good mystery... I'm thrilled it's finally out now! I've waited forever for Invisible Boy. I love her writing style- she is a smart lady and I love how she doesn't pander to readers but she gives them words to chew on and a story to think about.

Her first two Madeline Dare novels are A Field of Darkness and Crazy School.

Thank you, Ms. Read, for delivering a new novel! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

Well, you've convinced ME!! This sounds right up my alley.

Do you think I should read her books in order of publication, though? Are they connected in anyway, since you mentioned its her third book about "Madeline Dare". Should I get to know this character before I read 'Invisible Boy'?

Rettabug- I would read them in order because we see Madeline transition and it makes more "sense" to the reader. I would certainly want to get to know her before jumping into "Invisible Boy".

"A Field of Darkness" is the first one. It was good, but i LOVED "Crazy School", but I'm a teacher so maybe...

Thanks for commenting and visiting Please come back, and let me know what you think of Madeline and Read!
