The Raven Boys Cover

I knew next to nothing about The Scorpio Races before it was published, and look how spectacularly that turned out. So my reaction to Maggie Stiefvater's announcement that she has another book coming out this fall, that it's called The Raven Boys, and that it features a girl named Blue and a guy named Gansey was pretty much . . . BRING IT.

First in a four-part series, The Raven Boys is due out September 18th.

  2. A four part series, eh? I guess that makes us quadruple lucky :) Wonder what Miss Stiefvater thought of Beyonce's baby name...

    1. Katie, exactly. :) And I hadn't thought of the name connection there. That's funny.

    1. Allie, the link is to her announcement where she includes a summary. It is paranormal (or supernatural, at least) and includes a search for a Welsh king, bad boys, ancient curses, etc. So basically all the good stuff. ;)

  5. BRING IT! That's how I felt when I saw her announcement too. I'm so glad she's getting to write the novels that she started when she was younger. Hope this one is just as good as The Scorpio Races.

    1. I know. Those stories fascinate me about her as a young writer and how those ideas are being allowed to see the light of day now.

  6. Oh man, I'm a total Stiefvater whore as of late. I'm listening to Shiver on audio, and reading Scorpio Races on the side, and pretty much had heart palpitations when I saw this cover. Yay!

    1. Hehe. I know the feeling. I love glomming onto an author and just tearing through everything she wrote.

    1. Seriously. After THE SCORPIO RACES, how are we supposed to wait with anything resembling decorum?

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…
