Mortal Heart Cover

I really don't often love photos of actual people on my covers, thank you very much. But I make an exception for Robin LaFevers' His Fair Assassin series, because it was the cover of Grave Mercy that lured me in to begin with. Well, that and the word "assassin" in the series title. And nuns. Assassin nuns. Genius, people. In any event, here is the cover for the third and final (I believe) book in the trilogy—Mortal Heart. It is Annith's story and, really, she deserves one. I have loved each of these covers, but this one might actually be my favorite because bow and arrows. And her dress. I covet it. Cannot wait to read this one. Your thoughts?

  1. I think Grave Mercy is still my fave cover of the three (because she looks so FIERCE!) but I like this one an awful lot because that is exactly what I envisioned Annith looking like. Bad ass but still kind of wide-eyed and innocent, you know? And I am DYING to find out who her love interest will be! Thanks for sharing, Angie!

    1. She really does. I love Ismae.

      Yep, this is pretty much spot on for how I pictured Annith. And how often does that happen?!

    Woah. The backdrop to this one is just as good as the girl. I am so, so very happy that they made it dark and moody and sinister. I am worried because it's the last book and wrap ups are hard and anxiety and nrrrrrrr... *cries in a corner*

  6. I love it! I definitely like that it matches the original covers more than the redesign.

  9. It's pretty. And it reminds me that I really have to read Grave Mercy! It was the cover that first lured me to get it (and then, the great reviews).

    This cover looks a bit Robin Hood-ish to me. But then, I do like Robin Hood! Mostly I'm just excited to read the book…really liked the first two a lot!

    1. It totally does. Which probably explains my love for it. I can just tell Annith's story is going to be an exciting one.

    The green dress, I KNOW!!! I am partial to Sybella because she is my spirit animal but this whole cover is gorgeous. I can't wait to see what LaFevers does with Annith's story.

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.

Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you. …
