Happy New Year, everyone! Here’s my roundup of book news (and other fun stuff) around the web for the week! Sometimes I add stuff throughout the day on Friday, so be sure you check back over the weekend too!
Interviews, articles, and more:

- John Connolly’s Wrath of Angels was out this week, and my review is coming up, but in the meantime, I felt I needed to include Laura K. Curtis’s entry on her blog about how not to treat a stalker (turns out she’s just as big of a fan of John as I am!)
- On the same note, I interviewed John Connolly a while back, and thought I’d include that here as well (he’s quite funny, as well as being wildly talented!)
