The Demon's Surrender U.S. Cover

Hurray for Alan covers! Sarah Rees Brennan just revealed the cover for the third and final book in her Demon's Lexicon Trilogy--The Demon's Surrender. And I say it's about time Alan got his own cover. Even if he is holding a bow (which is still awesome) and not his gun (which is Alan). But then I am an Alan Brigand if ever there was one, so I would say that, wouldn't I? This is the U.S. hardback cover and I'm anxious to see what the UK one will look like, as I've loved those covers immensely. What do you think? Who's your favorite character from the trilogy and what have you got your fingers crossed for in this conclusion to the series? You can read the first chapter over here

  1. I love this cover, but i have a soft spot for my UK ones. I am hoping my love for this boy does not get dashed in this book and he is rewarded with the girl he most deserves, any by girl, i obvs mean Sin.

  2. I dunno...the dude on the cover isn't quite my beautiful bookish boy...

  3. It really is weird that he's holding a bow instead of a gun but maybe that's part of the story? Can't wait to see the UK cover because I like those editions better (even though my copies are US editions).

  4. I don't think he looks like I picture him. But still a cool cover. And I'm totally excited about this book!

  5. Total love. Not quite what I was expecting, but very definitely my favourite of the US covers. This is sort of Alan Revealed, isn't it?

    I like the London backdrop - am getting a secret kick out of the Gherkin as that's close to where I work and one of my favourite buildings - it's the sort of umm gherkin-shaped silhouette, funnily enough ;-)

    I also can't wait for the UK cover to be unveiled.

  9. In my minds eye Alan's glasses are a bit more nerdly. But I love the cover. As for my favorite character, sorry but it is Nick. He is just too much ;).

  10. I loved the second book in the series so much. High hopes for this one too!

  11. Not quite how I pictured him but yay indeed for Alan covers. I can't wait to see the UK version either.

    As to what I'm hoping for - Alan and Sin, Alan and Sin, Alan and Sin! Too much tension with those two!

  14. I've got to get to this series. I'm always hearding how it's so great!

  15. Very cool! Alan's not quite how I pictured him, but the cover still works for me.

    I love Alan, and his relationship with Nick just gets to me! But, when all is said and done, Nick's my favorite guy, and Jamie comes in #2.

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.

Tiffy is in a massive, massive bind. Out on her ear after breaking up with her exceptionally controlling boyfriend, she needs an inexpensive place to live and she needs it yesterday. Despite her …

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior

It is a pleasure to be a part of the blog tour for Hazel Prior's debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. I confess it was the title that drew me in when Berkley approached me about a possible review. It sounded a bit fey, a bit on the ethereal side. The comparisons to the exquisite Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Finedecidedly did not hurt. And so I readily accepted and opened my review copy to the first page. A thought:
Some things are easier to hide than others.

A fact:
Harps come under the "others" category. So do small boys. As you know by now, I am such a sucker for a good epigraph, and this one did the trick nicely. As did the novel's opening lines: A woman came to the barn today. Her hair was the color of walnut wood. Her eyes were the color of bracken in October. Her socks were the color of cherries, which was noticeable because all the rest of her clothes were sad colors. And so we are introduced to one Dan Hollis and the particular way that he sees the world and …
