Dark Pretties

Debut author Becca Fitzpatrick's first novel revolves around a girl named Nora whose life enters a dark phase when she encounters an unusual boy named Patch who is not who he seems. This one is getting loads of early rave reviews and I can't wait to read it. Word is it's dark, twisty, emotional, and utterly compelling. I'll drink to that! Due out October 13th.
Carrie Jones' sequel to Need has an even more beautiful cover than the first one. I love the gold tears and am looking forward to finding out where Zara's story goes and how she's going to keep the not the pretty kind of pixies from eating her! Due out January 5th.
So I know zombies are all the rage, but it seems to me that angels are on the rise as well. The first in a new four-book series, Fallen tells the story of 16-year-old Luce who finds herself caught up in an ancient war between angels and demons while at Sword & Cross boarding school in Savannah, Georgia. Due out December 8th.

    Serena, do you? Awesome. Can't wait to hear what you think.

    Emily, grin. I'm really looking forward to all three. I read NEED last January and it cold and icicly out and the perfect time for that one.

  8. Donna, yeah, that cover for FALLEN is really gorgeous. I love how she has her face in her hands.

  9. Gorgeous, gorgeous covers. There's so much creativity in YA cover art these days. I love it!

    I've got Hush, Hush on my list already, but Fallen is new to me. It sounds great, too! I love stories that take place at boarding schools. It guess the setting lends itself to all kinds of mischief.

  11. Christine, I agree. And you're right about the boarding school setting. Looking forward to shenanigans. :)

    Ladybug, I'm glad you enjoyed NEED. I haven't heard a ton of buzz about it but I enjoyed it and am glad the sequel is on its way.

  12. Oh, great covers! They're all gorgeous.
    I've heard of the other two (I'm dying to get a copy of Hush Hush and waiting for the sequel to need), but I've never heard of Fallen. I haven't read much about angels, but it sounds interesting.
    I'll definitely be checking out that book now, thanks! (:

  13. Jenn, I haven't read a ton of angel stuff but I'll admit I find it intriguing. The one series I have read and loved is Sharon Shinn's ARCHANGEL series. Pure gold, that.

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
