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.

  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.

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Angie's Little Free Library

I've wanted to post about this for the last while, but . . . life. Ever since we took a family trip a few years ago and ran across one of these Little Free Libraries somewhere in the wilds of Colorado, I've dreamed of putting one up in our yard and filling it with all the books. Since I am a serial book collector, it seemed as though it wouldn't be a hardship keeping one stocked. I can't even imagine the various ways my head would have exploded as a kid if I'd stumbled across one of these in any of the many neighborhoods where we lived when I was growing up. I would have absolutely haunted it.

And then my beautiful husband and his beautiful siblings went and gave me one. They even dug the hole and poured the concrete. I painted it, carefully selected the first books, and before I knew it there were actual people stopping. They were actually browsing. And it was approximately one thousand percent as magical as I imagined it might be. So I threw caution to the winds…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.
