Free Book Friday: The Anatomy of Curiosity

Happy Friday, everyone! Congratulations to Samantha Kolber (@SamanthaKolber), who’s won Feeding the Flying Fanellis. DM us your address or send it to, and we’ll get your book in the mail.

How about another giveaway to celebrate five years of Carolrhoda Lab™? This week, enter to win The Anatomy of Curiosity, cowritten by acclaimed YA authors Maggie Stiefvater, Tessa Gratton, and Brenna Yovanoff (also known as the Merry Sisters of Fate).

In an unassuming corner of Brooklyn, a young woman learns to be ladylike, to love context, and to speak her mind from a very curious sort of tutor.

In a faraway land convulsed by war, a young soldier hears the desert’s curious hum as he disarms bombs with the person he doesn’t know how to love.

In a place so shriveled by drought that any drowning is a curiosity, a young writer tries again and again to tread water beneath the surface of a vast and unusual sea.

Three new stories—complete with commentary on the creative process—from three acclaimed young adult authors working at the height of their powers.

The follow-up to The Curiosities: A Collection of Stories.

If you live in the US or Canada and you’d like to win The Anatomy of Curiosity, please leave a comment on this post (including your first and last name), or tweet this line: Free Book Friday! Tweet to win THE ANATOMY OF CURIOSITY from Make sure to check the blog next week to see if you’ve won!

    I love these collaborations. Stiefvater is one of my favorite current authors, but I loved at least one story from each in the first book. And liked many. – Brianna Boyer
