Star Crossed Cover Art

Here is the very nice cover art for Elizabeth C. Bunce's upcoming sophomore novel--Star Crossed. I got all jumpy when I saw it as I have been really looking forward to this release ever since I went absolutely wild over Bunce's A Curse Dark as Gold. The writing was so stunning, and the reworking of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale so surprising and pitch-perfect that I vowed to read whatever the woman wrote. Star Crossed features a thief/spy named Digger, a land where magic has been banned, and a rebellion in the works. I simply cannot wait. Star Crossed is due out October 1st.

  6. Mollie, CURSE is lovely and absorbing. I highly recommend it.

    Ladybug, definitely try CURSE. Just a heady debut, IMO.

    Raspberry, it really does. I'd been waiting for news on it and the blurb on her site is tantalizing. :)

    brizmus, I think so too.

    Lenore, it's worth it.

  7. Oh, this so seems up my alley! (Oddly, Amazon has up a different cover. This one is better, I think, and I'm basing that mostly on the font, which I love.) I should probably read CURSE, too - I've heard so many good things about it.

  8. Such a pretty cover! Plus I'm always curious about books that have a thief/spy protagonist, probably because of Gen from the Queen's Thief series.

  10. Can I just tell you that so many of the good books I read these days are because of you? =) lol. I am definitely adding this one to my list because I too loved Curse! =)

  11. Chelle, that's a very odd cover up on Amazon. I posted this one as it's the one Ms. Bunce has up on her website and GoodReads has it up as well. Odd. Also, you really must read CURSE. You will love it. :)

    Chachic, don't we all have a soft spot for thieves now because of Gen? :) I actually have ever since George Cooper--the King of the Thieves from Tamora Pierce's Alanna quartet. *sigh*

    Janssen, lovely news isn't it?

    Camie, you have no idea how happy that makes me! I'm thrilled you're finding ones you enjoy. I knew you loved CURSE and we'll definitely have to compare notes when this one comes out. :)

  12. YAY!

    Thanks so much for posting this, I didn't know that she had another book coming out. I absolutely LOVED Curse and I've been dying to read more by Bunce.

  13. I love rereading my comments to find out how confusing they are! :P I do hope the cover is the one you posted. And...off to get CURSE!

  14. Vanessa, I was thinking of you. It's so exciting!

    Chelle, lol. I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  15. Fantasy novel + female hero who's also a spy/thief + rebellion = WIN. I'll have to go read Bunce's first book now.

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'…

"I am looped in the loops of her hair"

For the past couple of days I have been somewhat swallowed up in Eva Ibbotson's The Morning Gift. This was the one Ibbotson historical I'd somehow missed. I'm going to finish it tonight, so a review will be forthcoming. But until then, please have this—Christopher Plummer's unparalleled recitation of "Brown Penny" by W.B. Yeats. A line from this poem makes a brief but shatteringly perfect appearance in The Morning Gift, and I can't . . . I can't get it out of my head.
