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 :)

  2. I was beside myself with excitement when I found out her next one was going to be a Sevenwaters book.

  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?

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend me Your Recs

Guys. We are going on a trip―a trip we have been planning for years. And it is finally happening next week! We're going to visit my parents in France, and we are taking the whole gang. Or rather, all three kids but not the dog. Who I am desperately sad about leaving and really hope he doesn't think we've up and given him to another family and proceed to forget all about us. It's just two weeks. But we've never left him that long before, and I am obviously emotional about it. Have I posted pics of Sodapop here before? I'm not sure that I ever have. Here he is on the day we got him: And here he is now in his natural habitat, which is to say in my library on laundry day: Ahem. 
The actual point of this post is to get your reading recs for the trip! I'm completely torn over which physical books to take with me. Yes, I realize most of my reading will be done on my Kindle by necessity, but I always have to have some physical copies with me. For both safety and I…
