It’s time for a look back over the past week, and to see what’s coming up. This feature is based on the original Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge.
Last (two) Week(s) on the Bookcase
Wow, it’s been ages since I’ve done a CR post… my weekends have been really very busy and with Christmas on the way that’s not about to change, but I’m squeezing this one in because I’ve had an influx of exciting books this week!
I finally got to joining in with Hannah’s Cover Lover feature – I’ve been admiring it for a while now!
Reviews (since my October wrap-up):
- Silver, Talia Vance
- Crewel, Gennifer Albin
- Angelkiller and Traitor Angel, H. David Blalock (two for one!)
Around the Community
- Remember Stormdancer, Jay Kristoff’s debut? The composer Will Musser read it and was inspired to write some music, and it’s amazing! I would love to hear more music inspired by stories!
- Bout of Books 6.0 is go! Mark January 7-13 in your calendar and start piling those books.
- A City of Bones (Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments #1) teaser trailer has been released and wow, it looks great! I have to admit I didn’t really like the casting choice for Jace to start with, but after seeing the trailer I think perhaps Jamie Campbell Bower might just pull it off! I must get onto reading the rest of the series!
- Mage’s Blood, David Hair – For review from Pan Macmillan, thanks!
- The Water Witch, Juliet Dark – from Netgalley. In Australia (and the UK?) this will be published under the author’s real name, Carol Goodman. I also picked up the first in this series, Incubus (published in the US as The Demon Lover, Juliet Dark) from the library.
- Scent of Magic, Maria V. Snyder – from Netgalley. I also picked up the first book in this series, Touch of Power from the library.
- The Mad Scientist’s Daughter, Cassandra Rose Clarke – from Netgalley.
- Days of Blood and Starlight, Laini Taylor – pre-ordered so it was delivered on release day. Squee!!
- Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm, Philip Pullman – from Edelweiss. Yep, that Philip Pullman.
Days of Blood and Starlight, Laini Taylor
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a world free of bloodshed and war.
This is not that world.
The much-anticipated sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I’ve been so looking forward to this and so far it hasn’t disappointed! I’m hoping after this super-busy weekend I’ll have some more time to finish it soon.
Have a lovely week everyone!
