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.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
