Sneaky Snippet

Because I'm still re-reading it and grinning, I figured I might as well link to the latest snippet Ilona and Gordon Andrews have released on their site in case you haven't seen it yet. This one's from Magic Bleeds (only 113 days and counting til release day *sob*) and you're gonna looooove it. Only problem is, they sneakily removed the names of the characters involved in this scene. I think we all know who they are, though, and this wait is killing me! I may have to just go re-read Magic Strikes to tide me over. Again.

  1. Oh my gosh I can't put my excitement into words!

  2. Caitlin, my sentiments exactly.

  3. I know from comments on the original post and her forums that there's worry it isn't who we think it is.

    Unless Andrea or some other female is sharing narrator duties, there's no question that it's Kate. There will be much despair in the fandom if it isn't His Fluffiness. The scene probably takes place toward the end of the book -- I'm guessing here -- and certainly after resolving whatever conflict they had at the start of the book.

    It's a great scene because it so rare that these two characters (if it is them) rarely have. A quiet, tender moment of comfort.

  4. Ack! That should read: It's a great scene because it so rare that these two characters (if it is them) have a quiet, tender moment of comfort.

    Changed gears, didn't go back an correct. :-(

  5. I want to be excited for this, but I haven't even read the first yet! The series is on the TBR list. I dislike having to miss out on the excitement of a new release in an awesome YA fantasy series. Ah well, that's what breaks are for.

  6. Christina, that's what I was thinking as well as far as the possible placement and pacing goes. And I can only imagine the howls that would erupt were it not Kate & Curran. I'm sitting here, fingers crossed, all but counting on it. lol.

    Lan, no worries! I know just how you feel. This series is definitely one to get in on when you have the chance. Though it's not YA, actually, but mainstream urban fantasy. Similar in tone to Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series and I love them both immensely.

    I pulled out my books after reading that snippet yesterday, but decided it would be a mistake to reread them now. Maybe closer to release date!

  9. Michelle, neither do I. I'm reduced to a puddle of wanting and that is all.

    Karen, you're probably smarter than I am. I'm halfway through MAGIC STRIKES as we speak. It's gonna be a long haul...

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
