  2. The Raven Boys! Can't wait to read that. I hope it's just as good as The Scorpio Races.

    1. I'm trying to manage my expectations post-Scorpio, because it seems ludicrous to expect the same thing in terms of impact. However. I really cannot wait to dive in!

  5. I'm so glad to see that The Raven Boys were unputdownable, Angie. One of my Norwegian book blogging friends went to BEA and she surprised me with mailing me copy of The Raven Boys when she got back home. I was over the moon! Can't wait to delve into Maggie's world :)

    1. Mari, that is so awesome!! What a good friend.

      I haven't read them yet, I should clarify. They were just the ones I couldn't bear to stick in the box to ship. Lol.

  6. I'm reading THE DARKEST MINDS now. (And then probably THE RAVEN BOYS.) Good picks.

  9. I can't wait to try The Darkest Minds. I really liked Brightly Woven--it doesn't get enough play, IMO. Look forward to your thoughts:)

    1. Flannery, I feel precisely the same way. It really flew under the radar, and I've been so excited to see what she'd do next.

  10. GAH! Proof that I have way too many books to read atm is the fact that I have both of these, and am STILL jealous of you having gotten to them. Hope they made great company on the trip home!

    1. Heidi, LOL. We book bloggers are a strange lot, to be sure.

      To be clear, I haven't read them yet. Just stroked fondly and savored the anticipation. I know . . .

    1. Shane, there were a LOT of people excited about snagging a copy. And rightly so.

  12. YAY I'm so excited for both of these (and I'm so glad to have snagged them at BEA). I need to get my reading on.

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 …

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…
