We are excited to share this great news: Marie Brennan’s A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS has been short-listed by the RUSA, a division of the American Library Association, for their 2014 Reading List. RUSA, the Reference and User Services Association, is made up of librarians and library staff in various fields and genres. This list highlights the top picks of by libraries around the country, aiming to recognize the most outstanding genre fiction books.

We are thrilled to see that a year after its debut, A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS is still being recognized! This book has been highlighted many times over the past year and, in recent weeks, it has been featured on several best-of-the year lists as well! A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS has also recently been nominated for a Readers Choice Award by the Salt Lake County Library! This is perfect timing, as as readers can catch up before the second Lady Trent memoir, THE TROPIC OF SERPENTS, comes out on March 4th.

Also recognized on this list is Brandon Sanderson’s STEELHEART, which was picked as a Read-Alike choice for the Fantasy pick of the year, Vicious by V.E. Schwab. We are confident that this list will bring even more readership to these great books!
