  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.

    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!

    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!

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
