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.

Review | A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

The first review of the year! Writing this one always feels fresh and hopeful to me and like it may set the tone of my reading year in a way. This was a very good one to start with. And the moral of this story appears to be: I will never tire of Beauty and the Beast retellings. A fact I was not unaware of, but that I am happy to have confirmed once more, this time after reading Brigid Kemmerer's A Curse So Dark and Lonely. My favorites tend to run the Robin McKinley way, with the most recent favorite retelling being Meagan Spooner's wonderful Hunted. But this is the first retelling of my favorite fairy tale that I've read that includes both traditional fantasy and modern contemporary settings. I didn't think it could work. Or, at least, I was skeptical that the one would interfere with the other or that the different dialogues might clash. How happy I was to find that the whole thing played out seamlessly. How happy I am to have discovered Brigid Kemmerer's writin…

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Angie's Best Books of 2018

It is the last day of the year. Are you with me? We made it this far. I think we'd better keep going. I always enjoy arriving at this final post of the year so much. I love seeing all of your lists and all of the books and words and hearts and monumental efforts that gave you life this year. That helped get you to this point. With me. I have felt rather keenly these last 365 days how in it together we are. How we have to be. And I am grateful for you. For each of you who leave comments and send recommendations and write and read and push forward into the darkness. I'm so grateful for you. 
And so here I leave my best books of the year. It's a whopping 28 titles, guys. Twenty. Eight. I haven't had a list that long in a handful of years at least. That is something to smile at. A record of a year well read, indeed.
