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...

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo
