Things that just make my day...

1. Finding out that Robin McKinley has a new book coming out in September (the 20th to be exact). It's been four long years since Sunshine came out and I realize I've developed a twitch, which I assume will not go away until I get my hands on this book. This Dragonhaven. *twitch*

2. Finding out that not only does Ellen Emerson White have a new book coming out in October (the 30th to be exact), but Susan McCallister (from Friends for Life) is a major character in it. And, Beverly Johnson (from Life Without Friends) makes an "off-screen" appearance. How much do I love it when authors cross over their characters? So. Much.

3. Finding out that Juliet Marillier's next book is going to be a Sevenwaters book. Yep, you heard me right Liza. It follows one of Sean and Aisling's daughters, Clodagh I believe. Too much to hope for glimpses of Liadan and Bran? I think not. And now a moment of silence for the awesomeness of a new Sevenwaters book. ----- The anticipation may actually kill me, but it will be a sweet death.

4. Finding all three of these things out in the space of a week? Priceless.

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

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
