    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!

    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.

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
