2014 Must Be Mine List

Right. First things first. Time to kick off the year with my 2014 Must Be Mine list:




And no covers yet on these, but they will be mine just the same:

The Raven Cycle #3  by Maggie Stiefvater
The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas
Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

What about you guys? Dying to read any of these, too? What's on your 2014 list?

  1. You always do this to me! Make me think of books that haven't EVEN come out yet.
    And help me discover ones I didn't even know were a thought in someone's mind.
    You sly devilish woman.

  3. Yes to Cress, Night Broken, and Magic Breaks! I had totally forgotten about Isla coming out this year. And I am absolutely dying to read Murder of Crows. I loved Written in Red so much. I'm also impatiently waiting for Jenn Bennet's 3rd Arcadia Bell book, although I can't think of the title at the moment. It's going to be a good book year. :)

    1. I was surprised at how into Written in Red I was. Can't wait to get back to that world and those people.

    Oh, really good list!

    That ISLA cover is growing on me - I really liked the original ANNA and LOLA covers, but yeah, I can see all the three new covers going very nicely together.

    The Anne Bishop and Sarah Rees Brennan books are on my list as well - the SRB especially!

    1. I know. I had feelings both ways, and I would have loved to have seen what they did with a Lola cover matching the original hardcovers.

      Especially the SRB!!!

  5. Man, what a great list! I have a similar list. I didn't know about some of these though (like Rainbow Rowell's new book) or Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater. Will add those to my list.

    1. Sinner is going to kill me dead. I just know it.

  6. I have Lost Lake, Landline, Tell the Wind and Fire and both Maggie books on my MUST have list. As well as Fangirl, Shimmer by Paula Weston, These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner, Anomaly by Caroline Richmond and I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. So many great books out this year!

    1. I just received a copy of These Broken Stars! Really looking forward to starting it. Just as soon as I finish my spontaneous Fangirl re-read. THAT. BOOK.

  7. Yes, at least half are on my list two, so I'm off to check out the other half, because I'm sure I will want them as well! :--)

    Love your list and I love the title of it!!
    LOL
    We have a few of the same, though I have to admit that i'm kind of over Isla and the Happily Ever After, I think that I've waited so long for that book that no matter what it is it won't be good enough :(
    I'm really excited for the next Huntley Fitzpatrick too, and even more because next year she's writing Tim's story.

    1. LOL. I hear ya re: Lola. How long have we been waiting now? Although, it does sound as though she's had a rough go of it over this book and I sympathize with that. Can't imagine the pressure of a fandom.

      TIM'S STORY. Yes, please.

      Delete
  9. Isla, Mercy, Sarra Manning, Lost Lake, the SRB book and OMIGOD SINNER! I cannot wait for all of those.

    I'm also looking forward to the other two books in Molly O'Keefe's new contemporary series and both of the Mhairi McFarlane books out in the US this year (I read one on new year's day and really liked it). And Liza Palmer's Heroine, which is a late 2014/early 2015 release, sooooo I'll be dying waiting for an entire year.

    1. SINNER.

      I really am going to read Crazy Thing Called Love soon. I've been eyeing Heroine. Would love a December release on that one!

  10. Lost Lake, Isla, It Felt Like a Kiss, Magic Breaks, Raven Cycle #3, and The Perilous Sea are all on my list too. Plus the latest Sebastian St. Cyr mystery (not as good as the Lady Julia books but I love the main female character, Hero -- she's the reason I've kept with them), My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas, and Deanna Raybourn's next standalone, City of Jasmine.

    Also, Sarra Manning just said on twitter that It Felt Like a Kiss will be available in the US via Amazon!

    1. Wow. There are a lot of those St. Cyr books out. I should probably give the first one a go. I didn't know that was the name of the next Sherry Thomas! Very excited. When is it out?

      Publishers: please to be facilitating my Sarra Manning needs on this side of the pond. THANK YOU.

      Delete
    2. The first St Cyr book is like The Fugitive. The third book, I found part of the mystery REALLY disturbing (and there's a plot twist that comes from nowhere and is OTT). The fourth book is when Hero starts to get more page time.

      No release date for Sherry Thomas yet -- fingers crossed for late 2014.

      I have you to thank for introducing me to Sarra Manning! I really hope putting her NA books on Amazon will lead lots of readers to them.

    3. It Felt Like a Kiss is on Amazon!! Wish I could start reading it RIGHT NOW.

Interview with Alexandra Bracken + Brightly Woven Giveaway!

I fell in love with the cover of Alexandra Bracken's debut novel--Brightly Woven--last fall and the scant synopses I could find at the time certainly piqued my interest. After managing to get my hands on an ARC, I found myself surprised and pleased with this unique fantasy. You can read my review here. As the release date approached, I invited Alex to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the site and, despite her crazy busy schedule, she kindly accepted. Enjoy! First things first: When did the idea for Brightly Wovenfirst hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? I remember the exact moment it hit me—what I was doing, who I was talking to, what song was playing on iTunes.  :)  I had just come back from Winter Break my sophomore year in college and was sitting on my bed chatting with my mom.  Sophomore year was pretty remarkable in terms of the insane weather that we had in Virginia (where I was in school) but it had also been a bizarre year in Arizon…

Blog Tour Giveaway | An Artless Demise by Anna Lee Huber

Today marks the release of An Artless Demise―the seventh installment in Anna Lee Huber's excellent Lady Darby mystery series. I'm happy to be participating in the blog tour with a giveaway courtesy of Berkley. This is a series I've enjoyed from the very beginning (you can read my review of the first book here). Be sure that Kiera and Gage are well worth your time, particularly if you are a fan of Deanna Raybourn or Tasha Alexander.

ABOUT THE BOOK Kiera’s return to London is anything but mundane after fleeing in infamy more than two years ago. While Kiera expected the whispers and murmurs inspired by her reappearance, she wasn’t prepared to receive a letter of blackmail, threatening to divulge the secrets of her past and implicating her in crimes she didn’t commit. A gang of body snatchers is arrested on suspicion of killing people from the streets and selling the bodies to medical schools, and Kiera is a perfect suspect for their crimes―after all, she was previously married…

E-book Alert | Life Without Friends by Ellen Emerson White

I have been waiting for this day for what feels like forever. If you've followed this blog for basically any length of time, you have heard me singing the praises of Ellen Emerson White. I am a devoted fan of her spectacular President's Daughter and Echo Company series. And you should read and own them and spread the good word immediately. But Life Without Friends. This book was the beginning for me. Beverly and Derek and Boston and the Public Gardens. From my review:
This book kind of ate me alive at fourteen, and I have reread it pretty much every year since. It has become what you might call a Monster Comfort Read. I have been buying up used copies of this previously out-of-print book for years now and sending them to readers I knew needed them. I am so delighted to let you know it's now available on Kindle for just $2.99 or free with Kindle Unlimited. And I really love the new Kindle cover (above left), while I will always be inordinately attached to the original cove…
