My Bookish Ways!

Reading this and loving it...but I am in the mood for YA Fantasy and lots of it!

A small town outside of London, a family of witches, and a girl who desperately wants to be in this family...lovely writing and a great story and of course their are tons of secrets in Book One of this trilogy!

Plus every Grace girl wears incredible Indie clothes...and has arms filled with lovely bracelets...sigh!

 

New books!

These are from various publishers through NetGalley!

From Amazon...

“Sometimes there is a novel so strange and beguiling it makes you give up your world for another world, all the while that you are reading it. Such a story is Tiffany McDaniel’s tale of an enchanted boy―who might be the devil―welcomed into a family with no right to their name, Bliss. It will frighten you, and charm you, and break your heart if you allow it . . . and you will allow it, because once this world has hold of you, it won’t let you go.” ―Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author The Deep End of the Ocean and Two if by Sea...

'Dear Amy sets up a terrific, tricky premise and then delivers the suspense thriller readers hope for-a tense plot, imaginative twists, and smart writing' Julia Heaberlin, author of Sunday Times bestselling Black-Eyed Susans

“An original and entirely authentic love story…Midge Raymond takes us, physically and emotionally, into an unfamiliar world—a world that has much to teach us…It's a mature novel, one that recognizes that love is seldom simple or exclusive, and that the things that bring us together can also keep us apart.” (Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect )

Praise for State of Wonder:

“An engaging, consummately told tale.” (New York Times)

“Emotionally lucid. . . . Patchett is at her lyrical best when she catalogues the jungle.” (The New Yorker)

“This is surely the smartest, most exciting novel of the summer.” (Washington Post)

“The book is serious, but also so pleasurable that you hope it won’t end.” (NPR)

“Extraordinary. . . . Is there nothing the prodigiously talented Ann Patchett can’t do?” (Boston Globe)

Off I go!

Hugs,

Patty

  2. I wish I liked fantasy... sometimes it just sounds so appealing, but I just never end up enjoying it. Can't wait for Ann Patchett's latest though. Hope you have a great week!

  7. The Graces sounds like I might enjoy it actually, I like fantasy every so often and will read YA now and then. Yes did enjoy Cee Honeycutt, it wasn't what I was expecting but fell in love with her and her aunt.
