Deanna Raybourn posted a link to a fan's artistic rendition of her character--Mr. Nicholas Brisbane. As I know a few of you are admirers of Mr. Brisbane, I thought I'd post the link. Perhaps it'll help tide you over till the 4th Lady Julia Grey novel. He's really quite lovely. Scar and all.
I recently ran across this rather whimsical site called The Book Seer. You enter the book you just read (along with the author) and it generates a series of books recommendations for you. They seem to be drawn from Amazon, LibraryThing, and BookArmy. This might not prove excessively useful but it's good for a spot of fun and some messing around.
I keep a long list of upcoming books I'm looking forward to and Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire was a fairly recent addition. Rosemary and Rue is the first in a new urban fantasy series and it looks thoroughly promising. To get a taste of what's to come go read this excerpt Ms. McGuire has posted on her site.
I really need to read Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey novels...ReplyDelete
KMont at Lurv a la Mode just posted a review of Rosemary and Rue today--she loved it!
The BookSeer thing is pretty cool, but it doesn't like my browser right now.ReplyDelete
I want to read Rosemary and Rue too!
Ooo, the rendition is perfect. Thanks Angie! I also have a new blog to look at sometime.ReplyDelete
There's also whatshouldireadnext.com, though it's not as whimsical, and I don't know if it will be much more helpful.
Christine, you really do! I have no qualms in saying I think you would love them. I'm pretty sure I first heard about ROSEMARY AND RUE through KMont. I'm excited!ReplyDelete
Janicu, I had to laugh when I input one and it said, "Amazon recommends: Nothing. (Well, no books anyway.)" Lol.
Holly, you bet! I thought you might like him having recently made his acquaintance. ;) I wish I was an artist of any kind...
I'll have to go take a peek at whatshouldireadnext.com.
I like their This is where we live video with all the paper people walking around amongst the leaflets of novels.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the site tip on The Book Seer, it could come in handy if your in a reading slump and need suggestions.ReplyDelete
I'm also looking forward ROSEMARY and RUE, the book looks like a fantastic read.
Sharry, I had not seen that video. How wonderful it is! Thanks so much for pointing me to it.ReplyDelete
Donna, you're right. Perfect for finding your way out of a reading slump!
Wow that picture of Brisbane is...fantastic. Really perfect! I'm envious of those serious art skillz!ReplyDelete
And I had never heard of The Book Seer sight - awesome, thanks for that. Except it is a little discouraging when all three databases recommend nothing (or no books anyways)!
Thea, it is, isn't it? I was really shocked at how good it was when I clicked on the link. And I agree on the Book Seer no recs thing. I typed in RAMPANT and got no recs. Guess they don't deal too well with books that aren't out yet. Hehe.ReplyDelete
