This package showed up today...

...and I'm Just. So. Happy.


  1. I'm so, so sorry but I just have to say--

    WHAATTTTT?!??! How--what-- how is it even possible that you got the newest Marillier before it's supposed release date! Her website says first week of November! I'm stunned! Green-eyed with envy! Jealousy coursing through my veins!

    You should be happy!

  2. Lol. I was stalking the online bookstores and saw it pop up early on Barnes & Noble's. So far I'm about 50 pages in and it is so good...

  3. oh nice! I love getting those kind of parcels.

  4. What a nice little parcel! Cybele's Secret made it on to the Cybils list at the lastest minute, so I am looking forward to reading that...

  5. A Halloween treat. Parcels like this one make the world go round.

    Charlotte, I'm glad Cybele's Secret made it in. Happy reading!

  6. OMG. The new Sharon Shinn. I am so jealous. And I still need to get around to reading Marillier.

  7. Grin. I started with the Marillier and am really looking forward to the Shinn.

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.
