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.

  7. This is the first that I've seen of the Gone book cover. I hope it's good!

    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*

Terms of Endearment

Have you ever been reading a book, moving along quite nicely, and then--bam--a character whips out a particular term of endearment that just yanks you right out of the story? It happened to me recently, and I'm sad to say I couldn't recover. I did try. But she just kept using that term and I . . . I had to get the hell out of Dodge. Buh-bye, story. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I'm not saying this is the norm (thank goodness). I can put up with a certain amount of treacly back and forth when it comes to the exchange of terms of endearment, especially if they fit the characters, their background, culture, the tenor of their relationship, etc. And the history of these terms at home and from around the world is often fascinating (at times hilarious). But there comes a point where I can't see past the cheese and/or weird anymore and I do not want to be with these people any longer. Shallow? Perhaps. But it's a very individual thing, isn't it? We a…

Interview with Sara Creasy + Children of Scarabaeus Giveaway!

Today is the release day for Sara Creasy's Children of Scarabaeus--the second book in her wonderful Scarabaeus duology. I'm delighted to be celebrating release day with an interview with Ms. Creasy. I picked up Song of Scarabaeusa couple of weeks ago, fell immediately in love, and set about getting my hands on an ARC ofthe sequel as quickly as possible (you can read my reviews here and here). This is the kind of science fiction I love--character-driven and exciting, set against the background of a fully developed and eerily fascinating world. If you haven't had a chance to pick up these books, now is the perfect time. Please welcome Sara Creasy!  First things first: The Covers. I am kind of a fan of Chris McGrath’s covers, and I love the little touches on these two that make them unique to Edie & Finn’s story. Did you have any input on the covers and what was your reaction upon seeing the first one? Isn’t his work amazing? As soon as I found out he was doing my SONG OF S…
