Summer Blog Blast Tour, an Interview, and an Excerpt

Chasing Ray has the Summer Blog Blast Tour dates up. These wonderful folks put the tour on every year and it's always a fest o' awesome. This year they've got a great lineup and I'll definitely be dropping in to catch Carrie Jones today at Writing and Ruminating, Maggie Stiefvater also there on Wednesday, and Kristin Cashore at HipWriterMama on Friday. Rumor is...there'll be a Graceling giveaway!

In case by some freak chance you are not already a regular follower of the sneaky and cheeky Book Smugglers, you should rectify that problem. Harry over at Temple Library Reviews is interviewing Ana and Thea this week and it would be a perfect way to get to know them. Read Part I of the interview and then continue right on to Part II.

There was a high-pitched shriek heard round the 'Ville when I stumbled across the first chapter of Heroes at Risk, which Moira J. Moore has posted on her livejournal. If you're having a hard time holding out till August for your next Taro and Lee fix, go read the first chapter. And if you have no idea who Taro and Lee are, allow me to introduce you to the first in a fine series. Ignore the covers. That's what I keep telling my mother-in-law. Actually, I picked her up one of these handy-dandy book covers for Mother's Day. Now she'll never have to suffer cover embarrassment again...

  1. I've been wanting to read Moore's books, but they are so hard to find around my way. Not in libraries, not in bookstores. Very vexing! :(

    Have you had a chance to read the prologue for the fourth Kate Daniels book? It's up at Ilona Andrews' blog. So good!

    I'd like to read the Moore books someday. Is there a decent romantic element to them?

  4. Chelle, that IS vexing. Hm. May have to do a giveaway at some point. I so want books 5 & 6 to get picked up.

    LauraJane, I did! So, so good. I knew it would go down like that. Sigh. Can't wait to find out Curran's excuse. And, yes, there is a decent romantic element in the Moore books. I'm loving the direction the relationship is taking...

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin

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
