  1. Shiver looks interesting and I'm still reading Graceling. Thank you for posting.

  2. Ooooo! I had seen the cover for Fire, but not for Shiver. As if I wasn't already dying to read it! That cover is gorgeous - can't wait! And I'm looking forward to catching up with Scarlett and Spencer, too. Thank you, thank you, for posting these!

  3. The Fire cover is beautiful, plus it's similar enough to Graceling so that you can tell it's part of the same series.

    The Shiver cover is really striking, I would definitely pick it up in the store to have a closer look.

    Oh, I can't wait for Fire and Shiver. The covers a re great. Do you know if Scarlett Fever is a sequel to Suite Scarlett (a book I haven't read)? The model looks the same.

  5. Princess Allie, you bet! Hope Graceling is treating you right. :)

    Chelle, you are so welcome. I, too, am really excited about getting back together with Scarlett and Spencer. Such a great brother/sister relationship there.

    Li, you're right. I'd pick Shiver up for sure based on the cover alone. It has a bit of the How I Live Now going on. Very exciting.

    Anon, yes! Scarlett Fever is the sequel to Suite Scarlett and I highly recommend it. Hilarious.

  7. Janssen, I agree. Much to look forward to.

    Erin, lol. They do look tempting, don't they?

  8. The cover art for Fire is simply stunning. I have Graceling sitting near the top of my YA TBR pile... it's also a lovely cover.

    I also have to agree that shiver looks very tempting. I'm drawn to it as well.

  9. Christine, Kristin Cashore really lucked out in the eye-catching, sumptuous cover department, huh? I think you'll enjoy Graceling.

    That is an amazing cover for Cashore's next book! I am looking forward to reading more from her. Graceling was very good, I heard about it from you :)

  11. Emily, I know! So red and fiery. I'm very glad you liked Graceling. Hopefully Fire will be just as good.

Review | A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

The first review of the year! Writing this one always feels fresh and hopeful to me and like it may set the tone of my reading year in a way. This was a very good one to start with. And the moral of this story appears to be: I will never tire of Beauty and the Beast retellings. A fact I was not unaware of, but that I am happy to have confirmed once more, this time after reading Brigid Kemmerer's A Curse So Dark and Lonely. My favorites tend to run the Robin McKinley way, with the most recent favorite retelling being Meagan Spooner's wonderful Hunted. But this is the first retelling of my favorite fairy tale that I've read that includes both traditional fantasy and modern contemporary settings. I didn't think it could work. Or, at least, I was skeptical that the one would interfere with the other or that the different dialogues might clash. How happy I was to find that the whole thing played out seamlessly. How happy I am to have discovered Brigid Kemmerer's writin…

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…

Angie's Best Books of 2018

It is the last day of the year. Are you with me? We made it this far. I think we'd better keep going. I always enjoy arriving at this final post of the year so much. I love seeing all of your lists and all of the books and words and hearts and monumental efforts that gave you life this year. That helped get you to this point. With me. I have felt rather keenly these last 365 days how in it together we are. How we have to be. And I am grateful for you. For each of you who leave comments and send recommendations and write and read and push forward into the darkness. I'm so grateful for you. 
And so here I leave my best books of the year. It's a whopping 28 titles, guys. Twenty. Eight. I haven't had a list that long in a handful of years at least. That is something to smile at. A record of a year well read, indeed.
