Friday Evening Stops

It's still just the first week in January and already all kinds of things are going on around the blogosphere. It's these kinds of things that remind me it's okay that the holidays are over and good things will certainly come this year. Starting with these three:

First off, I wanted to be sure to point out that today is the last day to download Magic Gifts--the free Kate Daniels novella that Ilona Andrews gave as a Christmas gift to the fans. Best idea in the world, if you ask me. I've read it and loved it and you will, too. So scoot on over and download it before it's gone!

Next up, I would be remiss if I didn't direct you to the screamingest Kindle book deal around. Linda Gillard's fabulous Emotional Geology is now available on Kindle for a mere 99 cents! This is my favorite of all of Linda's wonderful books. Previously out of print, you do not want to miss this one. My review here.

Lastly, I'm going to be taking part in an exciting event in just a couple weeks. Chachic's Book Nook is hosting The Queen's Thief Week as a way of celebrating and spreading the word on that wonderful series. I had my own meltdown over its awesomeness almost exactly two years ago now, and the awe has yet to fade. I'll be guest posting (along with several other awesome authors and bloggers), so be sure to check it out then. 

Have a good weekend!


  1. Yay, thanks for spreading the word about the Queen's Thief week, Angie! I'm really excited about it and can't wait to see what you guest posters will write. It's just two weeks away! Also, I loved Magic Gifts as well. I think it was a great Christmas gift from Ilona and Gordon. Will spread the word about the Emotional Geology ebook.

  2. Wow, getting very bummed about all the books that seem to be on the kindle but not the nook. Seriously.

  3. Thanks once again for spreading the word about EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY, Angie. :-)

  4. Angie, thanks for the heads-up about Emotional Geology! Linda kindly mailed a copy of Star Gazing to me, and I just finished it at the end of the year. I need to review it, and then I'm going to dive right into Emotional Geology.

    Also, Chachic's event is a perfect reason for me to finally read Megan Whalen Turner's books! Hooray!

  5. Queen's Thief Week? Oh dear... ;)

  6. I actually searched for Linda Gillard's books on Kindle a while ago, and bought them all based on your reviews. Truly a great deal on Emotional Geology! Still must read them...and Magic Gifts as well. But I like knowing there are lovely books awaiting me.

  7. Just downloaded EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY. Another virtual royalty check should be coming your way. :)

  8. Thanks for the downloads, people. As an author I owe so much to Angie's blog! :-)

    It proves (if proof were needed) that what sells books isn't clever marketing campaigns or celebrity status but reader enthusiasm.

    Hooray for book blogs and bloggers!

  9. Great links Angie! I just bought EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY -- I've been wanting to pick it up and really, you can't beat $.99!

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Angie's Best Books of 2017

Somehow it's New Year's Eve again, and here we are. I don't especially feel like getting into what this bloody year was like and how I thought it couldn't get worse than last year, but then 2017 came and was all . . . ahem. Well, you know the rest. 
Suffice it to say, I feel like my favorite reads of the year reflect what I needed and what all you wonderful writers and readers had and needed to give. Just ten titles this year, you guys. A literal Top Ten, which I don't believe I've ever actually achieved. It is the last day of the year, and I present you with one highly distilled list of impeccable reads.
