A Marillier and a Shinn























At last the covers of the upcoming Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier and Fortune and Fate by Sharon Shinn. Both are sequels (of sorts) to Marillier's Sevenwaters Trilogy and Shinn's Novels of the Twelve Houses respectively. Heir to Sevenwaters follows Liadan's niece Clodagh and takes place about 3 years after the events of Child of the Prophecy come to a close. Fortune and Fate follows the Rider Wen who leaves the royal city and the Riders behind at the end of Reader and Raelynx. The best part, you ask? They come out the Same Day. So mark November 4th on your calendars and start trying to decide which one you're gonna read first.

  1. I had no idea there was even going to be another Sevenwaters book! How awesome. And cool news about Sharon Shinn too! I guess that gives me some extra incentive to catch up with the Twelve Houses books :)

  4. I'm so looking forward to the Sharon Shinn book! The cover doesn't look as pretty as the previous ones in her Twelve Houses series, but it's an interesting scene.

    And I need to read Marillier. I'm embarassed to admit that I've one of her books sitting in my TBR pile for ages!

  5. It does have a different style, doesn't it? I wonder what made them decide to make some changes.

    I highly recommend the Marillier. Start with Daughter of the Forest. It's just beautiful.

  7. Everytime Marillier comes out with a new one, it's a special occasion.
    As for Sharon Shinn, I loved her Samaria series, but nothing else she wrote ever really clicked for me.

  8. I know, Liza! Such happy Fall reading we have in store...

    Hi, Em! The Samaria series holds a special place in my heart as well because they were the first Shinn books I read. Do you have a favorite among them?

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Angie's Best Books of 2017

Somehow it's New Year's Eve again, and here we are. I don't especially feel like getting into what this bloody year was like and how I thought it couldn't get worse than last year, but then 2017 came and was all . . . ahem. Well, you know the rest. 
Suffice it to say, I feel like my favorite reads of the year reflect what I needed and what all you wonderful writers and readers had and needed to give. Just ten titles this year, you guys. A literal Top Ten, which I don't believe I've ever actually achieved. It is the last day of the year, and I present you with one highly distilled list of impeccable reads.
