Books I Love

Today you can find me over at Book Chick City talking about a few of my favorite books. As part of her fortnightly Books We Love feature, Carolyn invited me to blather on a bit about one or two of my most beloved reads. Any guesses as to which author or books I picked? Make sure to stop in and say hi!

    Robin McKinley was the one who started my lifelong love of fantasy novels, I'm sure. I remember wanting to cry after finishing the Blue Sword in elementary school. I was both sad and happy, and it'd just been SO REAL!

    That edition of Rose Daughter is BEAUTIFUL! Might I ask where/how you obtained such a treasure?

  4. Emily, I know what you mean. Somehow her versions of fairy tales feel incredibly real to me, too.

    And I discovered the book when I was browsing editions of ROSE DAUGHTER on Amazon a couple years ago. I clicked on this mysterious illustrated edition. You can also purchase it through the gallery's website itself here. Same price either place. My mother-in-law actually surprised me with it for my birthday. It ain't cheap, but it's even more beautiful in person than you can imagine. :)

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.
