Thursday Giggles: Girl Power Version

First, I thought that a single twitter reference on my part to this bit of awesomeness would suffice, but I've been unable to stop laughing since I read it a couple of days ago. You've probably seen it already, but in case you haven't, I point you to Ilona Andrews' What-If Kate Daniels Twitter. You're welcome.
And second, in case you haven't had a chance to watch this hysterical fake commercial for Brontë Power Dolls yet, now is your chance. It's basically the best thing ever. I call dibs on Anne! (Thanks to Meg Cabot for the link.)

  5. I am SO EXCITED for Magic Bleeds at the end of the month. The Kate/Jim/Curran twitter made me want it even more. I may have to do a quick re-read of the series to get my fix. :)

    Michelle, ALMOST! That twitter scene...wow. They are just so good at those little snippets that make you want to just smile all the day long. :)

    Anna, good word for it!

    Raspberry, I know! Somehow, having read her so much, it's a very fitting expression. lol.

    Melissa, seriously. They have got to start making these for real.

  12. Angie, where is that art from? That's art I've seen on a cover before, but it wasn't Ilona's.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Diana, that's the image Ilona has had up on her site under Kate's profile for awhile now here.. But, you know, I saw it on a different book's cover as well just recently. I was like, hey, it's Kate! Can't remember which one now...

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…

Bibliocrack Review | Don't You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane

There's really very little to say, isn't there? I hope you are well, wherever you are. I hope that your loved ones are. I hope that you're finding small ways to stay afloat, to remain connected to something, someone, someplace (real or fictional) that sustains you. Dark and difficult times, indeed. I've rather been holding on to this review. I felt so much, so quickly, so irrevocably for this book that it rapidly became hard to talk about to anyone who hadn't read it. And so I hope I can do it justice, just barely enough justice that, if you haven't, you'll run right out and do so. Now is the perfect time. I feel strongly that this book is what you need in your life at this moment. And so. You might want to prepare yourselves. I'm about to wax rhapsodic. But first, and introductory excerpt:
At the end of that session, Fay said, What if it's not what happened with this boy you regret, it's you? It's the you who you left behind. It's who …

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…
