...Sigh.

  1. Oooh, pretty covers. And new Eva Ibbotson! Do you know if that is a new release or a release with a differnet title like "The Secret Countess"? I don't recognise the title.

  2. Ignore my question. I tracked it down myself. It's a reprint of "Magic Flutes" which is what I was hoping. Now they might do the audiobook like they did with "A Company of Swans" and "The Secret Countess"/"A Countess Below Stairs". I love those books and I loved listening to them, so I was hoping "Magic Flutes" would come out in reprint too.

  3. Very cool news, Kerry. I haven't read MAGIC FLUTES yet. I discovered Ibbotson through these new reprints and have loved each one.

  4. I have a nice copy of "A Company of Swans" but sad old paperbacks of "A Countess Below Stairs" and "Magic Flutes" with almost embarrassing covers. That means I keep being tempted by the new reprints, but don't really need new copies. It's the stories inside that count.

  5. I know what you mean. I am so easily seduced by shiny, new covers. No will power at all.

  6. She has really lucked out with her covers. I'm with you, Angie, I've only read her reprints so I'm glad they're bringing out more!

  7. I'm interested in reading The Fetch (interesting premise,) and I absolutely cannot wait for Storm Glass. Not only did I love the Study series, when I contacted Maria Snyder about a library visit I found her to be incredibly warm and gracious, which is always a plus in a favored writer. And now when she does come for the visit I hope I don't start rambling like an idiot about Ari and Janco's antics. :)

  8. I'm really looking forward to THE FETCH as I just loved Whitcomb's first novel, A CERTAIN SLANT OF LIGHT.

    Chelle, it's so fun when you contact and author and they're just as lovely as you thought they'd be. And I love Ari and Janco. It will be fun to see where this new series goes.

    I just finished A Countess Below Stairs by Ibbotson yesterday! I haven't read the one you have a cover of.

  10. I thought A COUNTESS BELOW STAIRS was delightful. Although A SONG FOR SUMMER and A COMPANY OF SWANS are still tied for my favorite Ibbotson. I didn't know there was another one coming out and I'm very excited!

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
