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. :)

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

  12. 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 | A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

The first review of the year! Writing this one always feels fresh and hopeful to me and like it may set the tone of my reading year in a way. This was a very good one to start with. And the moral of this story appears to be: I will never tire of Beauty and the Beast retellings. A fact I was not unaware of, but that I am happy to have confirmed once more, this time after reading Brigid Kemmerer's A Curse So Dark and Lonely. My favorites tend to run the Robin McKinley way, with the most recent favorite retelling being Meagan Spooner's wonderful Hunted. But this is the first retelling of my favorite fairy tale that I've read that includes both traditional fantasy and modern contemporary settings. I didn't think it could work. Or, at least, I was skeptical that the one would interfere with the other or that the different dialogues might clash. How happy I was to find that the whole thing played out seamlessly. How happy I am to have discovered Brigid Kemmerer's writin…

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Angie's Best Books of 2018

It is the last day of the year. Are you with me? We made it this far. I think we'd better keep going. I always enjoy arriving at this final post of the year so much. I love seeing all of your lists and all of the books and words and hearts and monumental efforts that gave you life this year. That helped get you to this point. With me. I have felt rather keenly these last 365 days how in it together we are. How we have to be. And I am grateful for you. For each of you who leave comments and send recommendations and write and read and push forward into the darkness. I'm so grateful for you. 
And so here I leave my best books of the year. It's a whopping 28 titles, guys. Twenty. Eight. I haven't had a list that long in a handful of years at least. That is something to smile at. A record of a year well read, indeed.
