A Touch of Red Pretties


It's February and the color red is everywhere, in windows, on cookies, and threading through the most lovely of upcoming book covers. These three. They are so beautiful, they would grace any shelf. Two of these authors are new to me, and I'm really looking forward to getting to know their work.

The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
This one sounds almost like a magical realism take on Romeo & Juliet, and I am down with that, people. The two families are the Palomas and the Corbeaus. They operate rival traveling performance troupes. There's a touch of black magic. Then a Corbeau boy saves a Paloma girl's life, and well . . .
Due out September 15th

Sword by Amy Bai
Thanks to Li for the heads up on this one! Kyali is the only sword-wielding girl in the realm. Charged with the care of the heir to the throne, her life falls apart when the ancient nursery rhymes of her people begin to manifest themselves in reality. It sounds all epic and doomed and whatnot. That cover though.
Due out today!

Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead
I really cannot stress to you enough how perfect a book Stead's When You Reach Me is. I read it last year and have yet to review it because feelings. But. This new one looks fabulous. Three girls. Best friends. Seventh grade. Valentine's Day is involved. Ugh. Already I have shivers.
Due out August 4th

  1. That SWORD cover is fantastic, isn't it? Fingers crossed the inside lives up to the outside...

    The Rebecca Stead sounds really good. I'll have to look up her previous books - WHEN YOU REACH ME, huh?

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

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
