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??

    ReplyDelete
  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.

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…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
