There She Goes

There she goes again. With her fantabulous, freaking book trailers. And I'm not even a fan of the format myself. I generally find them the height of cheese, though I realize I'm not likely the target audience. Still. If I'd never read her books or heard her name, I would want to read both Shiver and Ballad based on these awesomely beautiful trailers Maggie Stiefvater made herself. Wouldn't you?
For a behind-the-scenes peek into the making of the Shiver trailer, go here. Amazing. Maggie also has contests going on to win both books. So be sure to check those out here.

  1. I was already a fan of the Shiver trailer, but this was my first time seeing the Ballad trailer. The music, the drawings ... I loved it! Having read the book already, I think it's perfect. Thanks for posting.

  4. Those are the coolest, most original book trailers I've ever seen!

  5. I know! She's frighteningly talented in all areas of art. We're constantly posting her latest marvels on our blog too. Where does she find the time?

  6. Holly, I know! It does seem perfect once you've read it, doesn't it?

    Juju, you will not be disappointed. Promise.

    Dannie, yeah, I've read a couple not enthralled reviews. I happen to be a big fan and think her writing is lovely but to each her own. The trailers definitely rock.

    Just Blinded, my thoughts exactly!

    Donna, I have absolutely no idea. I checked out your blog, btw, and what a fun place it is!

  7. So sweet! And she composed the music too.

    I see you're on Team Gale--I guess you must have read Catching Fire already. I havent (threeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogo) so I'm reserving my judgement...but I found the romance subplot in The Hunger Games to be a little weak compared to the rest of the fabulous fabulous plot. But I thought Gale was kinda cool :)

  9. I followed your links to Maggie's blogs yesterday and got all kinds of distracted there... and never said thanks to you, Angie, for pointing me in the right direction. So thanks. : )

  10. Rhiannon, I know! I love that she composed the music as well.

    My review of CATCHING FIRE will be coming soon and, yes, I am a Gale fan. I agree that the romance was not the focus in the first book and will be interested to hear what you think of that angle after reading book 2.

    Maggie, how could I not? They're made of awesome!

    Christine, you are so welcome. It's a fun place, isn't it? :)

Review | More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

My online book group does a Secret Santa exchange every year, and this last year mine knocked it out of the park. She sent me a copy of Brigid Kemmerer's Letters to the Lost along with the most creative accompanying letter and series of clues and mementos tied to a fictional relationship not even wholly of this world. It tied in perfectly with the book and, once I read it, her creativity and extra mile effort meant that much more. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and immediately sought out the companion book featuring Declan's enigmatic best friend Rev. More Than We Can Tell begins shortly after the events of Letters to the Lost and, while Declan and Juliet are in the story, it focuses primarily on Rev and a new character named Emma Blue. I was already half in love with Rev Fletcher from the glimpses we get of him in the first book, so it was in no way surprising that I fell into his story without a hitch. This book can definitely be read as a standalone, though I think it is e…

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for this first novel in Julie Anne Long's new historical series―The Palace of Rogues. I found my way to Ms. Long's writing in a bit of a piecemeal fashion. Her long-running Pennyroyal Green series is widely beloved and records the various and sundry escapades of the always-scheming, never repentant Eversea and Redmond families. Really, the series is worth the price of admission for the hilarious (and ever-evolving) "Ballad of Colin Eversea" alone (though Colin's is not actually my favorite book). But I've come to believe that this sweeping eleven-book series has something for every reader. You just have to dip your toes in enough times to find your favorites. And once you do, they will become instant and confirmed comfort reads. Spoiler alert: mine are It Happened One Midnightand What I Did for a Duke. I'm sorry, Colin, but the Duke of Falconbridge, you are not. You'll be just fine, though. Madeleine ha…

Illustrated Pretties

I can't resist with these three. I love a good illustrated cover so much, and these three are not only just beautiful but include a couple of delicious retellings, a debut novel, and at least three young women who sound as fierce and determined and real as I could hope for on this International Women's Day. Put them on your calendars. I'm feeling the good feelings.

The Guinevere Deceptionby Kiersten White
This cover, you guys. This cover . . . I love it so much. And I haven't read a good Arthurian retelling in far too long. In this version, Guinevere is not at all what she seems. Summoned by Merlin to keep Arthur safe, she is a changeling who gives everything up to protect Camelot. GOOD YES GOOD.
Due out November 5th
