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!

    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.

  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!

  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!

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
