October Pretties

I am so excited about these upcoming releases. All three are due out in October (within a week of each other, actually), which seems so very far away at this point. I love all three covers, all three titles, and all three fascinating premises. I have never read anything by these authors, so it's anyone's guess as to how things will play out. I do have to say that I love that Eve & Adam is written by a husband-and-wife team. Other such teams have worked out just incredibly well for me in the past. I look forward to adding another set to the list.

Eve & Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
After a bad accident, Eve (short for Evening) realizes she's healing faster than is to be expected. Recuperating in her mother's biotech lab, she and an unusual guy named Solo embark on the creation of the perfect boy.
Due out October 2nd.

Ironskin by Tina Connolly
Steampunk faery retelling of Jane Eyre. I could elaborate, but I think I'm gonna exercise a little restraint and just let that little chunk of awesomesauce sink in.
Due out October 2nd.

Jepp, Who Defied the Stars by Katherine Marsh
Historical fiction, ho! This one sounds part Shakespeare, part Three Musketeers and follows a court dwarf called Jepp who sets out to find his destiny and finds the adventure of a lifetime. That cover is just achingly gorgeous.
Due out October 9th.

  1. I had heard of the first two, but Jepp, Who Defied the Stars is new to me. Looks amazing!

  2. I'm a sucker for the starry covers, every time. Oh and I love the idea of a steampunk faery Jane Eyre - just so much potential!

    1. Melissa, oh, so am I. It's in that same lovely vein as the covers of MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD and I'LL BE THERE. *happysigh*

      And IRONSKIN is just a must with that premise. Wowzers.

  7. I had only seen the cover for Eve & Adam, so the other two were new to me. I can't wait, they all sound fantastic! A retelling of Jane Eyre, yes please.

  9. October will be such a difficult month for my wallet! I'm waiting on these three and a couple more; I'm not sure how I'll decide which to read first! But being that Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books ever, Ironskin is probably the one I'm the most excited about (and a little scared of, to be honest!)

    1. Kay, ha! So true. And I hear ya on the slightly scared front. It could obviously go SO wrong. But the lure of it going so right reels me in.

  10. I have all of these on my list as well! I'm especially nervous about Ironskin. It could really go either way, but I'm hoping it's good!

    1. Heidi, exactly! Ahhh, the agony...

  11. Of those, the cover that really catches my eye is the Eve and Adam one, but the contents of Jepp sounds like something I would love!

    1. Just stuck it on my wish list. I'm getting this book.

  13. They're all stunning, but the ADAM & EVE one is BOMB! I want it in my hands NOW!

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.

My Year of Georgette Heyer | Book the First: The Convenient Marriage

This is not a drill. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I believe I am, in fact, upon the brink of accomplishing something that I have been meaning to do for years. I want you all to be the first to know that I just read my first very Georgette Heyer. That's right. I actually did it. After years of promising myself and countless others (many of you) that I would do it, I finally managed it! And I can tell that I'm about to dive headlong into a full-fledged binge.

After consulting all of your past comments on which Heyers are your favorites and why (and after some serious counsel from Beth and a well-timed trip to our local Barnes & Noble), I chose to start with The Convenient Marriage. I had no idea it would turn out to contain, without question, one of my favorite proposal scenes ever. The kind of proposal scene that makes you feel like nothing could ever go wrong after it. It takes place very early on, and it made me laugh and sigh repeatedly with delight. I know I will be …
