  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.

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…
