Tell Me What to Do

I need your advice. I just finished Tamora Pierce's Bloodhound (review forthcoming) and I've got such a lovely stack sitting next to me and no idea where to start. That's where you come in. Here are the options:


So give me your input. Have you read any of these? What's it gonna be?

  1. I would have to say Fragile Eternity b/c:
    1. I am currently reading it.
    2. The only Shannon Hale I've tried (Austenland) didn't grab me (as much as I LOVE Austen)
    3. I've heard good things about Marcelo, but um... I am currently reading Fragile Eternity so I am just going to stick with that suggestion.

  2. Ooh! I want to read a review of the actor and the housewife!

  3. I've heard really great things about Marcelo, and I adore the cover.

    Read 'em all! Tell us what you think!

    I'd love to hear what you think of Marcelo-I read it myself and very much enjoyed it!

    But...I'd also like to hear what you think of Fragile Eternity.

    And the Shannon Hale book looks fascinating.

    ...sorry! Can't choose! ;)

  5. I would go with the Marcelo one, you know, if I had to choose. But sadly, I don't have to choose. I have none of those books. :(

  6. Thanks you guys!

    Rebachin, are you enjoying it? I've been really looking forward to FE, but I'm a bit afraid...

    Violet, I will definitely review it as soon as I get to it.

    Diana, isn't the cover gorgeous? I think it's so striking.

    SunShine, lol. All three it is!

    Carrie, I'm kind of leaning the Marcelo way. It sounds fascinating. And you know if you ever need a good book, I will happily drive one up to you. Or perhaps meet you at the London Market for the drop-off... :)

  7. I'm most curious about Marcelo in the Real World, so I say read that one first.

    Then again, I haven't heard a thing about the Shannon Hale novel and it looks different from her other works I'm familiar with, so I'd love to hear your thoughts on that one, too.

    Fragile Eternity looks really good, too.

    Heck. Diana's right. Read 'em all and get back to us asap! ;)

  8. I just looked up The Actor and the Housewife and found out it is an adult novel. I just assumed it was YA which really doesn't make sense now that I look at the cover art. Maybe I don't deserve a vote. LOL

    Marcelo. <--if my vote counts. ;)

  9. I would vote for Fragile Eternity, the cover art is amazing and I've heard the pages are as well.

  10. Fragile Eternity starts slow . . . so you might want to read one of the other two.

  11. rofl. The trials and tribulations you have! My vote is Shannon Hale :)

  12. Angie,
    We might have to arrange a London Market book exchange periodically. Yes. That sounds like something we need to do. But I fear I won't have any books to contribute. Maybe I can just supply the treats. :)

  13. The Melissa Marr is catching my eye the most! It's probably what I would grab if I had the energy to stay up late and read. Will you come read me to sleep at night??

  14. Christine, yeah, THE ACTOR AND THE HOUSEWIFE is Hale's second adult novel. I'm very interested to see what this one's like. I honestly have no idea what to expect.

    Dottie, I've heard the same. Marr always delivers.

    Liviana, that's good to know. Have you finished it yet?

    Janicu, I know, I know. I have it rough.

    Carrie, you buy me an apple Tango and I'm yours. ;)

    Liza, you know I will. Every night. :) The Marr is a direct sequel to WICKED LOVELY, btw, so I think you'd like it.

Angie's 2021 Must Be Mine

 It's like I don't want to curse anything by saying too much about my hopes for 2021. But I have zero problem talking about the upcoming books I'm excited to read. And so here are my most anticipated novels of 2021: And no covers yet on these, but I'm looking forward to them just the same: Neverland by Meagan Spooner Subtle Blood by K.J.

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo

Angie's Best Books of 2020

 It is the last day of the year. Of this year specifically. "Well done," is all have to say if you're reading this. Well done, you. It's been quiet for awhile now around these parts. For obvious reasons. But I've been reading continuously and ever so gratefully. I have felt such a profound sense of gratitude this year for all of the creators in this world who have been tirelessly and so lovingly creating art for all of us. We have needed it so much. I have needed it so much. And this year of all years, the creation of art has felt like such a fierce act of love. So thank you. And so here I leave my best books of the year. My list stands at fourteen titles. And that feels just right. photo by @aamith (in the order in which I read them) A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane Slippery Creatures by K.J.
