Pegasus Cover Art

It's like some kind of cover craze around here lately. But there's just so many to talk about and spotlight! Yesterday Robin McKinley unveiled the cover for her upcoming novel Pegasus
Do the words "some authors have all the luck" come to mind? Lol. Just kidding. I know they all go through serious highs and lows cover-wise throughout their careers. But holy crap! This one is gorgeous. While I gaze at it some more, you can read the first three snippets here, here, and here
Pegasus is due out November 2nd.

  6. I know you shouldn't judge a book by the cover but just looking at this cover for some reason I just know the story inside is amazing.

  7. Wow... beautiful.

    But McKinley's been around for a while. I think maybe established authors have better luck with covers than first-timers.

  10. You guys, I totally agree. I was actually stunned at how beautiful it was when I first saw it. And she's had some lovely covers.

    La Coccinelle, you're absolutely right, I'm sure.

  13. I feel so unaware - I didn't even know she was coming out with a new book this year. You're right, the cover's gorgeous. I sense a Christmas present for myself - er, for my sister. I will IN NO WAY read it before giving it to her.

  14. This is the kind of book you put face forward on your bookshelf so you can see the cover everyday. Stunning.

  16. That is one lovely cover. I adore the cover on CHALICE, too. Every time I pass it I can't but stop and look at it.

  17. Yes, the cover is gorgeous, but I'm just excited to learn about another forthcoming McKinley book!

  18. Oh my lord! I must ask Robin which cover gods she sacrifices to and whether a fatted calf or snow white lamb is more pleasing to them. Pegasus has always been a favourite mythical figure of mine. What a lovely book!

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked It's Not Me, It's Youwell enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You, and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number, I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and Beth O'Leary's The Flatshareshould also take note.
Comedy was tragedy plus time, but the…

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

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…
