I can't quit Jennifer Echols . Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with Such a Rush . I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that Such a Rush is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way
Shiver looks interesting and I'm still reading Graceling. Thank you for posting.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
The Fire cover is beautiful, plus it's similar enough to Graceling so that you can tell it's part of the same series.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Princess Allie, you bet! Hope Graceling is treating you right. :)ReplyDelete
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.
Very fun - will definitely be keeping my eyes open for these in coming months.ReplyDelete
Janssen, I agree. Much to look forward to.ReplyDelete
Erin, lol. They do look tempting, don't they?
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.ReplyDelete
I also have to agree that shiver looks very tempting. I'm drawn to it as well.
Christine, Kristin Cashore really lucked out in the eye-catching, sumptuous cover department, huh? I think you'll enjoy Graceling.ReplyDelete
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 :)ReplyDelete
Emily, I know! So red and fiery. I'm very glad you liked Graceling. Hopefully Fire will be just as good.ReplyDelete
