Are you guys ready for the Alpha Showdown? We’re getting everything ready on our side, and it’s looking to be lots of fun. The Showdown will dominate VBC starting on May 14. We’ll even do weekend posts – gasp!
Speaking of favorites, I’ve been recommending books left and right lately. The ones that have gotten the biggest “thank you for suggesting this” responses in the last month have been Feed by Mira Grant, Divergent by Veronica Roth and Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning (click links for spoiler-free reviews).
Julie Kagawa cover reveal
While I continue to tell anyone and everyone they need to read Julie Kagawa’s new Blood of Eden series, she’s sharing new cover art from the Iron Fey world. While Meghan Chase’s story has concluded, The Lost Prince kicks off a new trilogy featuring her now-grown little brother Ethan (who looks mighty yummy in said cover art). The Lost Prince is slated for an October 2012 release.
Another taste of Once Burned
We’re getting closer to the release of Jeaniene Frost’s new Night Huntress spinoff series focusing on Vlad. That means more teasers! She’s just posted this snippet from the novel, and how badly do you want this book? This will be one you can expect reviewed at VBC in the near future. (And maybe a little giveaway fun with Jeaniene next week. Hint hint.)
Richelle Mead book tour
Author Richelle Mead has announced the dates for her book tour in support of The Golden Lily, the second in her Bloodlines series. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and am, in general, a Richelle Mead fangirl. While she isn’t coming to my area on this tour, maybe she’s coming to yours. If so, take pictures!
