  2. I LIKE it, but I still love the mass market with the shoe :) Nostalgia probably since I've read it so many times...I actually could use a new copy. I might have to indulge!

  5. Marg, exactly! I love how clean it is. I think I could more easily hand this copy around to a variety of people, you know?

    Allison, I know. It feels like an indulgence, but I think I'll need to get a second copy as well. But when it's of a book I'm so fond of and will reread many times, I don't feel so bad. ;)

    Holly, isn't it great?

    Sandy, ooh. Must check mine.

    I wish the copy that I bought had that cover because it's so eyecatching and it doesn't exactly scream romance novel.

  7. Yep, awesome cover - and the book deserves it, read BET ME a few months back and absolutely LOVED it.

  8. April, I know. That's why I love it, too. That way new readers won't be influenced one way or the other and will give it a fair chance.

    Erin, it really does deserve it. I'm so glad you loved it, too. I have such fond feelings for it.

    Really unrelated, but I just finished STOLEN by Lucy Christopher and I couldn't remember which book blog had recommended it... I thought it was you but I searched your blog and it doesn't seem as if you have read it. It is YA and haunting and beautiful!

  12. I just had to come back and tell you (so that you can laugh at me) that I did end up buying this edition :) haha. I got the trade of Fast Women too...another of the Crusies I love even though I know not as many people love it.

  13. Michelle, I know I'm going to. May have to order it, though. Can't find this edition around these parts.

    Emily, I actually got STOLEN for my birthday a few days ago. Can't wait to start it! Thanks for letting me know you loved it.

    Carla, woman. You must read this now. You will love.

    Allison, haha! Awesome. You know, I'm not sure if I've read FAST WOMEN or not. I don't think I have. May need to pick it up since you love it.

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
