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.

  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 ;).

  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 | 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.
