Defiant Pretties

I'm not usually a fan of having whole entire people on book covers. Especially when they're on the photo realistic side of things. But I have to say, I like all three of these covers just fine. Something to do with the defiance on their faces and how they look very much as though they're inhabiting who they are, if that makes any sense at all. The titles are a bit of awesome as well, and I'm just very excited to give each one a whirl.

Edie Spencer works on the secret ward of the county hospital. The one they don't want you to know about. The paranormal ward. She thinks she's got the hang of it when a vampire dies on her shift. All hell breaks loose--literally. I am in the mood for some great, new urban fantasy, and I just think this one's going to be right up my alley.
Due out May 22nd

Brand spankin' new scifi from Garth Nix? Heck, yeah! The day Khemri is declared a prince is the day his life becomes permanently endangered. On a mission across space, he must simultaneously train to be a prince while fighting to stay alive from other princes who are trying to kill him. In other words, spacey goodness.
Due out May 15th

Escaping an intolerable arranged marriage, Ismae finds safety within a convent's walls. But life seems to hold an even more dangerous fate for her than marriage. Trained as an assassin, she must hone her new found gift at the expense of the lives of others. This one is giving me a bit of a Graceling vibe. Which clearly means it must be mine yesterday.
Due out April 3rd

  1. Grave Mercy is on my wishlist and I can't wait to read it. A Confusion of Princes is not the kind of books I read, but it's calling me...

  8. Oh wow! I think I'm most looking forward to Nightshifted - it sounds like it may have some good potential! But of course the Garth Nix is a must-read also.

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

Cover Reveal + Q&A: A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White

As longtime readers of the blog know, I am a full-fledged Ellen Emerson White fangirl and have been for something going on time immemorial. What this means is that a few years ago, having just finished reading my local library's copy of The Road Homefor the second time in as many days, I sat on the couch, brandished the book at my newlywed husband, and told him I was seriously considering never returning it (my conscience did eventually kick in and I meekly returned the library copy—after managing to procure a copy of my own, naturally). 
What this means is I went on to purchase an obscene number of out of print copies of the same title(before it was available as an e-book) and proceeded to send them winging their way across the globe to homes where I knew they were needed. 
What this means is that I refer to Ms. White's characters by their first names in casual conversation (pretty much on a daily basis) with friends and family members, and they automatically know exactly wh…
