Fiery

So I'm trolling around, minding my own business, when I stumble across the little detail that Kristin Cashore and Suzanne Collins will be doing a signing together at one of my favorite bookstores in the whole wide world--Books of Wonder! That's right, the author of Graceling and Fire and the author of The Hunger Games and Catching Fire will be double teaming the crowd on the evening of Tuesday, November 10th. Truly it is the height of injustice that I live so very far from New York City...Anyone out there going to be able to make it to this night of awesome?
To cheer myself up, here's the fun Fire widget in which you can cast your favorite characters in a hypothetical movie of the book. Having browsed through the options, can I just say Gael Garcia Bernal as Brigan FTW!

  1. I'm in DC which is still just a bit too far :(

    I'm still kicking myself for having missed Kristen at Politics & Prose in DC.

  4. Alexa, yeah, still too far I'd say. So sorry you missed her!

    Vanessa, lol. I'm sorry! You can join me on the sulking bench. Have a lemon wedge.

    Christine, it does indeed. You could make it, couldn't you? :)

  5. In a world where things were ALL ABOUT ME, I could very easily make it. The part about it being a school night and probably at a time very close to rush hour... those are life's little realities that may keep me from going. I'm seriously considering it, though. Let me know if you find a way to hop a plane bound for NYC that night, though, ok?

  6. Christine, and there goes my image of you as a woman of leisure...*sigh* ;)

    I will be calling you as soon as my ship comes in!

  9. Christine, lol! What can you do?

    Jena, as am I. As. Am. I.

  10. It's too cruel not being able to go. Did they not think how this would affect the rest of the world?? No they didn't, but they selfishly went ahead anyway!

    hehe...

  11. Rhiannon, it IS too cruel. It was an awful thing to do to the rest of us.

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

Cover Reveal + Q&A: A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White

As longtime readers of the blog know, I am a full-fledged Ellen Emerson White fangirl and have been for something going on time immemorial. What this means is that a few years ago, having just finished reading my local library's copy of The Road Homefor the second time in as many days, I sat on the couch, brandished the book at my newlywed husband, and told him I was seriously considering never returning it (my conscience did eventually kick in and I meekly returned the library copy—after managing to procure a copy of my own, naturally). 
What this means is I went on to purchase an obscene number of out of print copies of the same title(before it was available as an e-book) and proceeded to send them winging their way across the globe to homes where I knew they were needed. 
What this means is that I refer to Ms. White's characters by their first names in casual conversation (pretty much on a daily basis) with friends and family members, and they automatically know exactly wh…
