Author and Montage Hotels & Resorts Literary Ambassador Brad Meltzer shares his favorite books for spring. Here’s a secret about New York Times best-selling author and Montage Hotels & Resorts Literary Ambassador Brad Meltzer: He loves a fighter, particularly when he or she is searching for truth. Perhaps that’s why the bookish Beecher White character from Meltzer’s renowned “Culper Ring” series, and the explosive Hazel Nash from “The House of Secrets” never give up. But Meltzer doesn’t just write books about fighters, he reads them, too. For his spring book recommendations, Meltzer takes the fight out of the real world and into magical places where things aren’t always what they seem to be, and goodness and truth can be a little difficult to uncover. “Sure, we’re all different,” he says. “Some of us have beards, or no hair, or blue fur or green flippers. But goodness lives within each of us.” Brad Meltzer’s Must-Reads The best-selling author shares his picks for parents and children to enjoy from cover to cover this season. FOR CHILDREN “I AM JIM HENSON” BY BRAD MELTZER “Of all the hero books we’ve done, this is the very first where the person was truly my hero growing up. For me, it was always Jim Henson and Mr. Rogers. Those were the ones who changed my life. They taught me there’s good in all of us.And, best of all, you can use your creativity to share it with others.” FOR CHILDREN “LIFE OF ZARF: THE TROUBLE WITH WEASELS” BY ROB HARRELL “Got a ‘Wimpy Kid’ lover in your life? Here, Zarf is a troll at [the] very bottom of the middle school food chain, below the princes and the giants. Think [the] fairy tale of ‘Shrek’—in middle school.” FOR CHILDREN “THE VINDICO” BY WESLEY KING “A young family member gave me this book about a group of supervillains who are trying to build the next generation of villains.Being bad has rarely been this good.” FOR ADULTS “A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC” BY V. E. SCHWAB “Kell can travel between universes and, lucky for us, can take us to the wondrous multiple Londons of this book.Magic abounds in a world you can’t imagine.” FOR ADULTS “REPLICA” BY LAUREN OLIVER “A secret government facility builds replicas. To me, that’s cool enough.But ‘Replica’ is also a flipbook, meaning you read half of it, then you flip it over and read it from [the perspective of] a different narrator. However you read it, it’s epic goodness.”
