Shadowy Pretties

I would seriously shelve these three together just for how pretty they look side by side. And I'd do it in this order so as to be able to admire the light as it moves into darkness. I have only read one of these authors before, but I look forward to checking out all three. Two historical fantasies and one young adult fantasy, this summer is looking better and better.

The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley
I am a huge fan of The Winter Sea, and so it is with great pleasure that I anticipate this sequel of sorts. The matching covers will also look so nice together (that's right, I really am that shallow). Kearsley is the best when it comes to time traveling historical fantasies (and, really, when does it not?) I have implicit faith in her and in this adventure that spans the courts of Jacobite Scotland and Czarist Russia.
Due out June 4th

Indelible by Dawn Metcalf
How about that cover? I mean, really. Well done, Harlequin Teen. This sophomore novel from Ms. Metcalf is set in the world of the Twixt and looks to be the first in a trilogy and/or series. It's a bit hard to tell from the blurb, but it seems there will be monsters, glowing girls, boys who try to cut out your eye, and other such and sundry. I await good things.
Due out July 30th

Delia's Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer
Set in San Francisco in the years after the Great Quake, this dark fantasy follows a young woman who walks with ghosts. Having fled the bay and too many memories, she is called back by a spirit in need of rest. This one sounds part paranormal, part mystery and I am very interested in getting to know it better.
Due out September 17th

  2. The cover for Indelible reminds me of the feel of Sarah Cross' Kill Me Softly - they don't look alike, but the menacing rose promising fairy tales subverted thing is a sense I get from both covers. I'll be on the lookout for reviews of this one... sounds creepy & wonderful.

    1. Interesting, I hadn't made that connection. But you're right. The threatening rose and all. I really love this cover. I so hope the insides match (or exceed) the out.

    1. Don't you? I love it.

      And, yeah, while the cover is lovely, it's the story behind DELIA'S SHADOW that really has me interested.

  6. Oh, I especially like that cover for Indelible. I like how it's a little vague what, exactly, it is, and how it's portrayed. It makes *possibilities* possible.

    1. Me, too. It's at once promising and foreboding.

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…
