Darkly Luminous Treats

After finishing The Dead Travel Fast I'm in the mood for more things Gothic. So it's the perfect time to watch the trailer for The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker--the upcoming second novel in Leanna Renee Hieber's Strangely Beautiful saga.
Nice, isn't it? I love the Chopin and the lovely yet disturbing images. I truly enjoyed the first book and have been very interested to see where the sequel took Percy, Alexi, and all the Guard. Leanna has posted four excerpts from the new book to tide you over until the April 27th release date. Enjoy!

  1. I would never have looked twice at this book. But, after watching that...I'll probably by it. You know me! ;)

  2. I must confess that I wasn't blown away by the first one. I liked the dancing scene, and the sexual tension was well done, but the plot - I was always getting confused, and the ending was...well, I had to keep rereading to figure out what was happening.

  3. I don't know where I've been that I haven't visited your blog before but I'm so glad to be here now. After reading just a few of your posts I know I'm going to like it here.

    It was so nice meeting you the other night.

  4. Jennie, lol. The first one worked for me, even when I didn't think it would. I'm looking forward to this one!

    Raspberry, *grin* I can see that happening easily. It did get really dramatic and chaotic at the end. I guess I ended up caring about Percy and Alexi a lot and I was so mad at the rest for not trusting them that I read through to make sure good would out.

    Kim, and I'm happy to have you! :) It was great to meet you, too. I hope you enjoy the book. Though I should warn you there is a fair amount of language in it--what with the war and all...

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…
