A Couple Months of Reading: May & June


Life's been a bit busy lately and so I've combined the last two months this time.

Best reads of the past two months:

Sacred by Dennis Lehane (best one in the series so far, hands down)
Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris (not enough Eric, but Quinn's a tiger and that's cool)
The Dream-Maker's Magic by Sharon Shinn (last and probably best in the trilogy; when it comes to trilogies, my favorites tend to be the middle books, so this one was a pleasant surprise)
The Princess Diaries Vol. 1&2 by Meg Cabot (picked up against my better judgment, turns out it's laugh-out-loud funny; i love being proven wrong when it comes to books)
Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich (not a resolution in sight, but Ranger's there being all Rangery, so all is right in Plumland)

Best rereads of the past two months:

Homecoming, Dicey's Song, A Solitary Blue, Sons From Afar, and Seventeen Against the Dealer by Cynthia Voigt (Finest Kind)
Sunshine and The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley (when, oh when, is her next book coming out?)
The Road Home by Ellen Emerson White (she stopped in for our discussion on Readerville--it was awesome)

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
