Gunmetal Magic Cover

I don't know about you guys, but I'm kind of bouncing on my chair right now. Ilona Andrews has revealed the cover for Gunmetal Magic--the upcoming novel in the Kate Daniels world featuring Andrea! Andrea (and Raphael) kind of rock, so the fact that she gets her own book is splendiferous in the extreme. Coverwise, I love how Andrea looks. She's got the take no prisoners/I'm the small package good things come in attitude down pat. And I always love when we get a little magic-frayed Atlanta in the background. Gunmetal Magic is due out July 31st, and I simply won't be happy until it's in my hands.

  1. I love it! I'm just finishing up Magic Burns now, and have been loving Andrea, so I'm excited to see she's getting her own book. I should be all caught up by the time it releases too.

    1. Heidi, you are?! I'm so jealous you get to read MAGIC STRIKES next for the first time. I simply cannot recommend that one highly enough.

      And I am so excited for Andrea's book. I love that this series features two such strong female characters. So often the protag's BFF is the opposite of her in every way. But in this case, they're both tough as nails, while maintaining their own distinct personalities and stories. Love it.

    2. Yes! Requested Magic Strikes from the library as soon as I finished Magic Burns last night! Everyone seems to think that's when the series gets completely awesome, so I'm really looking forward to it. I am loving the delayed gratification with this series. All of the books have been good, but I like that the characters and relationships are unfolding so slowly because they have the time. And I totally agree about two strong chicks! They each have their own strengths, but they're both strong.

    3. Delayed gratification=WIN!

  2. I'm excited for the book but I'm not the biggest fan of the cover, especially the face looks a bit weird and too photoshopped.

    1. Sabrina, the face thing is interesting. I feel like Kate's face has evolved a fair bit over the course of those covers. My favorite is the Kate on MAGIC STRIKES. I am looking forward to Andrea's perspective on Kate/Curran and supernatural Atlanta.

  3. Oh, I hadn't realized the release date was fast approaching for this one--thanks for the heads up! Andrea looks pretty badass on this cover. Can't wait. :)

  4. I am woefully ignorant of the Kate Daniels world. Apparently I need to get up to speed. *apologizes*

    1. Jessica, lol, no apology needed. I merely point you in the direction of one MAGIC BITES. Run don't walk. Urban fantasy of the finest kind.

  5. OOOOOOOhhhh. Pretty! I don't know how I missed catching this one, but I cannot wait! Andrea getting a book and getting to act all tough and ready with a gun fills me with all sorts of glee. Yipee!!

    1. Michelle, glee is the precise emotion. Cannot wait.

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…
