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 | A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

The first review of the year! Writing this one always feels fresh and hopeful to me and like it may set the tone of my reading year in a way. This was a very good one to start with. And the moral of this story appears to be: I will never tire of Beauty and the Beast retellings. A fact I was not unaware of, but that I am happy to have confirmed once more, this time after reading Brigid Kemmerer's A Curse So Dark and Lonely. My favorites tend to run the Robin McKinley way, with the most recent favorite retelling being Meagan Spooner's wonderful Hunted. But this is the first retelling of my favorite fairy tale that I've read that includes both traditional fantasy and modern contemporary settings. I didn't think it could work. Or, at least, I was skeptical that the one would interfere with the other or that the different dialogues might clash. How happy I was to find that the whole thing played out seamlessly. How happy I am to have discovered Brigid Kemmerer's writin…

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…

Angie's Best Books of 2018

It is the last day of the year. Are you with me? We made it this far. I think we'd better keep going. I always enjoy arriving at this final post of the year so much. I love seeing all of your lists and all of the books and words and hearts and monumental efforts that gave you life this year. That helped get you to this point. With me. I have felt rather keenly these last 365 days how in it together we are. How we have to be. And I am grateful for you. For each of you who leave comments and send recommendations and write and read and push forward into the darkness. I'm so grateful for you. 
And so here I leave my best books of the year. It's a whopping 28 titles, guys. Twenty. Eight. I haven't had a list that long in a handful of years at least. That is something to smile at. A record of a year well read, indeed.
