Atmospheric Pretties


Aren't these three just sort of striking and atmospheric?

First up, Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan is due out October 6th. As you can tell by the awesome cover, it's all kinds of steampunk and is the first in a new series. Yay!

Longtime favorite of mine Sharon Shinn has a new YA out also in October, the 15th to be exact. Gateway is about an adopted Chinese girl and is set in an alternate St. Louis modeled after 19th century China.

Ever since getting lost in The Historian, I've been wondering what Elizabeth Kostova would write next. The Swan Thieves is due out the same day as Leviathan and follows a solitary psychiatrist treating a tormented artist. I'll take it.

  2. So Pretty. It seems to me the covers are getting better. Or we ignore the ugly ones... i'm not sure.

  3. Ooo! I want all of them! I've been waiting on Kostova's next one, and it looks like it's going to be another chunkster (which is good!) Fantastic covers on all three.

  4. I love that Sharon Shinn cover! And very cool blurb.

    I've been meaning to try Scott Westerfeld's books for ages. Interesting how steampunk is starting to appear everywhere.

  7. These covers are awesome. I'm excited about Kostova's novel too, so thanks for the FYI on that one. I'll have to go out and put it in my cart so I'll be ready!

    The covers are great! Thanks for sharing them. I haven't read anything by Westerfeld, Shinn or Kostova though I own The Historian and two of Sharon Shinn's adult fantasy novels.

    Amy, Elizabeth Kostova is signing at BEA Friday afternoon.

    Angie, I bought a copy of Resenting the Hero over the weekend. I can't wait to read it.

  13. They really are a fine lot, aren't they? And they looked so well together...

    Liza, I think covers in general are definitely getting more bad-a**. I definitely covet more of them than I used to. ;)

    Li, steampunk definitely seems to be on the rise lately. After reading CLOCKWORK HEART, I'm really looking forward to more.

    Amy, THE SWAN THIEVES was supposed to be there with Kostova signing and then it just....didn't happen. Strange. I picked up LEVIATHAN, but no sign of Shinn. I would have loved to have met her.

    LauraJ, I usually tell people to start with ARCHANGEL or MYSTIC & RIDER by Shinn. Do you have either of those? Also, I am so extremely stoked you picked up RESENTING THE HERO. Definitely let me know what you think of it!

    Diana, so did I. And thank you so much!

    Mishel, you are most welcome. Stop by anytime!

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.
