Charming Pretties

Two trusted authors and a debut. Two contemporaries and a fantasy. Two YAs and an adult. However you slice it, these three pretties are utterly charming and I am eager as can be to get my hands on them. 2014, you are looking good, my friend.

Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
I'm kind of crushing on this adorable cover and its tagline, "Sometimes love is everything you can't say." Disabled teen Amy has one goal for her senior year of high school: make a single real friend. In Matthew she finds that and more. Touted for fans of Eleanor & Park (which I still have to read), this one has my attention.
Due out June 3rd

It Felt Like a Kiss by Sarra Manning
You all know my feelings on Ms. Manning's Unsticky. Ahem. The unacknowledged daughter of a famous rock star, Ellie's life has been quiet until the paparazzi ferret her out. Amid the chaos enters her father's disturbingly charming (and ruthless) lawyer and, well, I really can't wait.
Due out February 13th (UK)

The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I think about Anderson's prose in Tiger Lily. I think about it All. The Time. And I have been rabidly eagerly awaiting her next novel. I was prepared to not even care what it was about. As it happens, it's about friends, ghosts, disappearing girls, and snow. Win/win.
Due out July 1st

  2. Oh, this reminds me that I really need to read Anderson. I know I meant to after reading your review of TIGER LILY, but I returned the book to the library unread. Fix that, self!

    1. Me, too, Lin. It's one of my favorite thing about these posts, arranging complementary covers.

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
