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!

  7. So sorry to disillusion you on my lifestyle, but well... there it is. LOL!

  8. I'm so unbelieveably jealous of everyone can be there for that...

  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.

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…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
