Happy Book Birthday to SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY by Susan Dennard!!!

So there's this book I'm DYING to read. It's called Something Strange and Deadly by the uber-awesome Susan Dennard. Not only do I think Susan is one of the nicest, most giving bloggers out there, she writes about ZOMBIES and STEAMPUNK WORLDS and PARASOLS. 

Here's the blurb:

The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

You can understand why I'm stoked for this book.

Especially when it COMES OUT TODAY. *fist pump*

So go do the right thing, folks. Pick up your copy of Something Strange and Deadly, available in bookstores now! :)
