Shiver Blog Tour: Giveaway Winner

And the winner is. . .tigrlily!

Please contact me with your mailing address and we'll get your copy of Shiver on its way. I was delighted to see there are so many Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels fans out there as they are my very favorite urban fantasy series. Lots of good shoutouts for Blood and Chocolate and Bitten, both of which I've read. I've got the Kitty Norville books sitting in my stack and I'm eyeing them as we speak. Thanks to Maggie for the interview, thanks to Scholastic for the giveaway, and thanks to all of you for the wonderful comments and recommendations!

  4. Juju, lol. I know. I wish we'd had more than one to give away. I saw the Blood and Chocolate movie and was...well, dismayed, is the only word that comes to mind. And even though I'm always up for watching Hugh Dancy, it was so bad. So, so bad!

    Thanks for the award, btw! I love it.

  6. Congrats, tigrlily!

    I named Mercy Thompson series as my favorite werewolf series, and I still stand by that (In fact, I just finished Bone Crossed over the weekend. *sigh*...) but I neglected to mention Blood and Chocolate as another favorite of mine. I also loved The Silver Kiss (vampire story) by the same author. Wow was that one emotional, or what?

    Now I'm off to buy Shiver... ;)

  7. azteclady, it was my pleasure! I'll be doing a similar interview/giveaway with Diana Peterfreund (and RAMPANT) in the next little while so be sure to stop by for that one.

    Christine, I stand right there with you. Mercy rocks! I'm so glad you enjoyed BONE CROSSED. I was very happy with how things between Mercy and her man went in that one. ;) I haven't read any other Klause books. Should I be picking up THE SILVER KISS?

  8. Angie, I highly recommend you read The Silver Kiss. It's a very moving story.

  9. Oh, and I concur with you about the goings on between Mercy and her man in Bone Crossed. It was oh, so perfectly paced. I'm ready for the next Mercy book already!!!!! At least Hunting Ground from the Alpha & Omega series is right around the corner!

  10. Christine, all righty then. My library's got it. It's added to the list. And I cannot wait for SILVER BORNE to come out. But I really am excited for HUNTING GROUND. So lovely to have a beloved author churning out two series! I can't imagine the work it must take. In the same vein, I'm really looking forward to the first in Ilona Andrews' new series next month!

  11. I do hope you like The Silver Kiss. Let me know your thoughts on it when you get to it.

    February 2010 sure feels way too long to wait for Silver Borne, but I'm sure it will be well worth the wait.

    I forgot about Ilona's upcoming new series. Thanks for the reminder.

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

"I am looped in the loops of her hair"

For the past couple of days I have been somewhat swallowed up in Eva Ibbotson's The Morning Gift. This was the one Ibbotson historical I'd somehow missed. I'm going to finish it tonight, so a review will be forthcoming. But until then, please have this—Christopher Plummer's unparalleled recitation of "Brown Penny" by W.B. Yeats. A line from this poem makes a brief but shatteringly perfect appearance in The Morning Gift, and I can't . . . I can't get it out of my head.
