Creepy Pretties

Frank Portman has his second YA book coming out August 25th--Andromeda Klein. It's about a girl whose life changes when she begins predicting real events through her tarot card readings. Things only get creepier from there. I love this cover!
Carrie Vaughn's Kitty books are sitting in my TBR glancing at me longingly. I'm looking forward to digging in. I'm also excited about her upcoming YA foray--Voices of Dragons. Vaughn herself has described the book as, "the rock climbing jet fighters alternate history dragon book." Ahem. I am so in.
Lastly comes the third and final novel in Lisa McMann's incredibly addictive Wake trilogy. I can't wait to read Gone but I'm gonna be honest and tell you that that empty green chair is making me nervous. Janie? Cabel? You have to be okay, okay?!

  2. Andromeda Klein looks sooo good. I love that kind of stuff with tarot readings.

    I haven't read any of Lisa McMann's book! I hear so many great things about them, though. I'll have to check it out!

  3. Lenore, I know! I'm glad AK is out so soon.

    Bianca, it does sound fun, doesn't it? The McMann books are great. Really well-written and intense. Hope you get to them soon. :)

    I love Lisa McMann's books. The cover for Gone is great, but now you've made me nervous! I'm definitely buying the hardcover, but I think I'll have to be spoiled for the ending before I read it. I like Janie and Cabel a lot.

  5. OOooh they all look good! I haven't read any of the books in the Wake Series, although they are on my wishlist. I'm definitely adding these 3 to that list now.

  6. Karen, lol! You nut. Though I confess, with some final books in a series/trilogy it is very hard to resist peeking. Just to make sure...

    Jenni, it's nice you have time to read the first two before GONE comes out! Though they're very fast reads. I hope it's a strong finish. I suspect it will be.

    I know, I know! But as I get older I honestly can't stand being shocked in a bad way. (I never got over what happened to Joyce in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Did you watch that show? I started reading spoilers for the show after that.) Karen

  9. Natasha, so do I. I'm not sure how she's going to wrap it up.

    Karen, lol. I understand. And "The Body" was the most horrifically sad episode of Buffy ever. *sob*

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.
