Tower of Thorns Giveaway!

Don't you love release day Tuesdays? Today is the release of the second book in Juliet Marillier's Blackthorn & Grim series—Tower of Thorns.
"Kudos to Marillier for improving on the first book of an already quality series…realistic psychology, matched with a twisty, often dark story, makes for a superb strong continuation.”
RT Book Review, Top Pick (For Tower of Thorns)

In the acclaimed Dreamer’s Pool (Roc Hardcover; 2014), award-winning author, Juliet Marillier, introduced readers to Blackthorn, an embittered healer escaped from prison, and her former cell-mate, the hulking and silent Grim. Fleeing to a derelict cottage on the fringe of the mysterious Dreamer’s Wood, Blackthorn and Grim must live duty bound for seven years to assist anyone who asks for her help.

Now, in TOWER OF THORNS (Roc Hardcover; $26.95; November 3, 2015), a noblewoman from the northern border has asked the Prince for help in expelling a howling creature from an oldtower on her land—one surrounded by an impenetrable hedge of thorns. Casting a blight over the entire district, and impossible to drive out by ordinary means, it threatens both the safety and sanity of all who live nearby.

With no ready solutions on hand, the Prince must consult Blackthorn and Grim, who put the pieces of the puzzle together, discovering that a powerful adversary is working behind the scenes.

Now their quest is about to become a life and death struggle—a conflict in which even the closest of friends can find themselves on opposite sides.
In honor of release day, Penguin Random House was so kind as to offer up a brand new hardcover to one reader! This giveaway is open to those with U.S. mailing addresses. To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter. The giveaway will be open through Tuesday, November 10th.

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…

Retro Friday Review: Goodbye Pink Pig by C.S. Adler

Retro Fridayis a weekly meme hosted here at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time! I include roundups from participating bloggers in my weekly post. You'll forgive me for indulging in what is essentially pure nostalgia this week and reviewing a book I hadn't thought of in years, but which had a profound impact on me as a young girl. I was remembering the school I attended in fifth grade the other night and mentally wandering the halls and rooms. I remembered the wonderful library it had and the kind librarian there who listened to me talk about how much I loved Lloyd Alexander and Susan Cooper and, smiling, led me over to wonderful, new authors such as Madeleine L'Engle. It was in this library that I was perusing one day when I came across Good-bye Pink Pigby C.S. Adler. I know. Can you be…
