Weekly Book Giveaway: Bad Blood, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

2016-11-07-weekly-book-giveaway-bad-blood-by-jennifer-lynn-barnes

I am in no mood for anything other than 100% undiluted entertainment, so this week's Book Giveaway is the latest book in Jennifer Lynn Barnes's Naturals series, Bad Blood. I'm not sure that even Ms. Barnes's book will be entertaining enough to distract me from my overwhelming election anxiety, but I figure it's got a better shot than most...

2016-10-17-weekly-book-giveaway-arabella-by-georgette-heyer

This week's Book Giveaway is Georgette Heyer's 1949 regency romance novel Arabella. I have no idea why the woman in the cover image looks so pensive; this is a totally cheerful book, I promise! A full review will follow shortly...

2016-10-10-weekly-book-giveaway-the-goal-by-elle-kennedy

This week's Book Giveaway is Elle Kennedy's The Goal, the fourth book in her Off-Campus series. (My mother hates these covers. I admit, I'm a little creeped out to discover that it's possible to develop muscles in one's armpit.) Our review will follow shortly...

2016-09-12-weekly-book-giveaway-the-creeping-shadow-by-jonathan-stroud

Weekly Book Giveaway: Chaos Choreography, by Seanan McGuire

2016-09-06-weekly-book-giveaway-chaos-choreography-by-seanan-mcguire

This week's Book Giveaway is Seanan McGuire's Chaos Choreography, the fifth book in her InCryptid series. I am resigned to the hideous covers at this point, but I'm really hoping this book fixes McGuire's unfortunate habit of ending the books in this series on a damsel-in-distress note. A full review will follow shortly...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Remembrance, by Meg Cabot

2016-08-22-weekly-book-giveaway-remembrance-by-meg-cabot

This week's Book Giveaway is Meg Cabot's Remembrance, the long-awaited final book in her (formerly YA) Mediator series. Based on Missing You, Cabot's first attempt at translating one of her teen series into a book for adults, I'm expecting a lot of humor and charm, plus wee bit of swearing and maybe a legit sex scene. A full review will follow shortly...

2016-08-15-weekly-book-giveaway-ninth-city-burning-by-j-patrick-black

This week's Book Giveaway is J. Patrick Black's Ninth City Burning, which I know absolutely nothing about, apart from the fact that I approve of the person they chose to write a promotional blurb (Patricia Briggs) and I really like the cover art. Our review will follow shortly...

Weekly Book Giveaway: The House of Shattered Wings, by Aliette De Bodard

2016-08-08-weekly-book-giveaway-the-house-of-shattered-wings-by-aliette-de-bodard

This week's Book Giveaway is Aliette De Bodard's The House of Shattered Wings, which I had assumed—incorrectly, apparently—was a YA supernatural romance. (Probably one involving fallen angels.) It seems it's actually an award-winning sci-fi novel for adults, which I'm actually a lot more excited...

This week's Book Giveaway is Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, a collection of comedic essays about everything from Kaling's childhood to her unique path to stardom (which apparently involved writing and starring in a play based on Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's friendship)...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Dark Money, by Jane Mayer

2016-07-18-weekly-book-giveaway-dark-money-by-jane-mayer

This week's Book Giveaway is Jane Mayer's Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right, which I read and enjoyed during my recent vacation. (There's nothing to beguile away a three-hour-long ferry ride like reading about the political fixations of creepy billionaires, in my opinion.) A full review will follow shortly...

Weekly Book Giveaway: From a High Tower, by Mercedes Lackey

2016-07-05-weekly-book-giveaway-from-a-high-tower-by-mercedes-lackey

This week's Book Giveaway is Mercedes Lackey's From a High Tower, a retelling of the Rapunzel story. I'm really not feeling that cover art (it looks super dated), but Lackey is a solid writer and I will give nearly any fairytale retelling a shot. A full review will follow shortly...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Stiletto, by Daniel O'Malley

This week's Book Giveaway is Daniel O'Malley's Stiletto, the sequel to his 2012 novel The Rook, which we reviewed here. Admittedly, I have about a dozen books that I seriously need to finish, but I actually want to read Stiletto, so it's jumping the queue. Our review will follow shortly...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Sorcerer to the Crown, by Zen Cho

2016-06-20-weekly-book-giveaway-sorcerer-to-the-crown-by-zen-cho

This week's Book Giveaway is Zen Cho's debut novel Sorcerer to the Crown. I'm a little nervous about this book, actually. It has great reviews, but it triggers two of my rage buttons: the British get a VASTLY superior cover than we do, and I can't find a solid release date for the sequel. What if I really like it and book two doesn't come out until...

Weekly Book Giveaway: And I Darken, by Kiersten White

2016-06-13-weekly-book-giveaway-and-i-darken-by-kiersten-white

This week's Book Giveaway is And I Darken, the first installment in a new teen series by Kiersten White. This book is apparently (very) loosely based on the historical events surrounding Vlad the Impaler. I have no idea how a story about a murderous, sadistic, 15th century nutjob will translate into a darkly seductive YA novel, but I'm looking forward to finding out...

2016-06-06-weekly-book-giveaway-julia-vanishes-by-catherine-egan

This week's Book Giveaway is Julia Vanishes, the first book in Catherine Egan's new Witch's Child trilogy. The plot description—involving magic, orphans, thieves, and serial killers—sounds pretty exciting, so I'm looking forward to reading it. A full review will follow shortly...

This week's Book Giveaway is Lisa Kleypas's latest historical romance: Marrying Winterborne, the second book in her Ravenels series. The first installment was one of the author's rare missteps, but I'm hoping this one will be better.

Weekly Book Giveaway: A Song for Ella Grey, by David Almond

2016-05-23-weekly-book-giveaway-a-song-for-ella-grey-by-david-almond

his week's Book Giveaway is David Almond's young adult novel A Song For Ella Grey. I'm having a bit of trouble imagining how a teen re-telling of Orpheus and Eurydice (which I'm assuming this book is) will work, but that cover art is simply too gorgeous to pass up...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Shades of Milk and Honey, by Mary Robinette Kowal

2016-05-16-weekly-book-giveaway-shades-of-milk-and-honey-by-mary-robinette-kowal

This week's Book Giveaway is Mary Robinette Kowal's fantasy novel Shades of Milk and Honey, which the back cover describes as "like wandering onto a secret picnic attended by Pride and Prejudice and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell". That sounds like a very tall order, but hopefully Ms. Kowal's book is up to the challenge. A full review will follow later today...

2016-05-09-weekly-book-giveaway-the-trials-of-apollo-the-hidden-oracle-by-rick-riordan

This week's Book Giveaway is Rick Riordan's new book The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle. Riordan has a gift for making total Mary-Sues into appealing, sympathetic characters, but humanizing an actual god might be a tall order, even for him. Our review will follow later today...

Weekly Book Giveaway: The Wallflower Vol. 36, by Tomoko Hayakawa

2016-05-02-weekly-book-giveaway-the-wallflower-vol-36-by-tomoko-hayakawa

This week's Book Giveaway is the last volume of The Wallflower, the long-running romantic comedy manga by Tomoko Hayakawa. The Wallflower has always been a little flimsy (there was enough story for a ten-volume series, tops, but it ran for thirty six), but it also brought me one of my all-time favorite manga heroines, so I will always have a soft spot for it in my heart...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Northanger Abbey, by Val McDermid

2016-04-18-weekly-book-giveaway-northanger-abbey-by-val-mcdermid

This week's Book Giveaway is Val McDermid's Northanger Abbey, a modern retelling of the Jane Austen novel of the same name. I'm only a few chapters in (a full review will follow later today), but thus far I don't actively long to push anyone down a well, so it's already a vast improvement over Alexander McCall Smith's Emma...

Weekly Book Giveaway: The Serpent King, by Jeff Zentner

2016-04-11-weekly-book-giveaway-the-serpent-king-by-jeff-zentner

This week's Book Giveaway is Jeff Zentner's debut novel The Serpent King, which I chose based on its attractively gritty cover art and my mother's recommendation. (She has a terrible habit of reading the last chapter of books first, and assures me that Mr. Zentner's book ends really well.) A full review will follow later today...
