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…

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.

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 1a 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 are likel…
