New Adult Pretties

Within the next few months, two writers I adore are coming out with New Adult titles written under their brand spanking new NA pseudonyms. I was kind of charmed at how well these two covers go together, and while I remain two parts skeptical/one part intrigued by the current massive explosion of NA titles, when it's done right, I love it. And so given my stellar track record with these authors, I will definitely be checking them out just as soon as I can.

Deeper by Robin York (aka Ruthie Knox)
So. I give you shady boys who work in bakeries, disillusioned girls who cannot sleep, and the tragic consequences of betrayal in a digital world. As always with Knox, this is gonna be good.
Due out January 28th

One & Only by Viv Daniels (aka Diana Peterfreund)
Here we have secret half-sisters, dastardly businessmen, geeky bespectacled scientists, and a whole lotta angst. Peterfreund was writing top-notch New Adult novels long before it was a thing. I just know this one's going to hit the spot.
Due out November 8th

  1. Also, I think New Adult has been rather shady up until this point. THIS WILL REDEEM IT.

    1. We are one on this matter.

  2. YES. YES. Both of these have been added to my TBR list for the exact same reason. These authors have proven themselves with their previous work, so I have faith their NA titles will deliver as well.

  3. Ah. These authors could make me go for NA.

    1. That's precisely it. It's so nice to be able to look forward to them confidently.

  4. I am not impressed with new adult in both it's dorky name and current iteration, but I really like Diana Peterfreund, so I'm super-excited about this. Ruthie's recent books have been iffy for me, but I loved her earlier two, so I'll most likely give that one a spin, too.

    Thanks for the heads-up about these two, Angie!

    1. I know. The last two Camelot novels didn't work that well for me in the end either. But I loved both Camelot novellas featuring Tony & Amber. Have you tried Ruthie's serial novel TRULY, Sarah? I know it's not finished yet, so I can't speak to the ending, BUT. It is so good so far. So good.

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…

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.
