    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.

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

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked  It's Not Me, It's You well enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You , and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number , I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and  Beth O'Leary 's  The Flatshare should also take note. Comedy was tragedy plus

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground. Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you.
