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.

  6. It's definitely my favorite of the US covers. FWIW.

  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!

  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 | 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…
