Win It Wednesday: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike

Win It Wednesday: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike It’s been a hot minute since we gave away a young adult book in Win It Wednesday. I didn’t forget about everyone who loves their YA fixes (myself included!), and I have an excellent book for you this week: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike. Despite the name, don’t expect Mariah Carey at all. We’re talking Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette. Royalty going drug dealer in a dystopian setting...

Win It Wednesday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Win It Wednesday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman I am all kinds of nerdy excited for the television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. It’s not just the cast, which includes Ricky Whittle (a.k.a. Lincoln from The 100) as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday. The look, the feel, the timing is right for a revisit of this great fantasy novel. Not too long ago, I did a re-read of American Gods on audio. It has a full-cast...

Win It Wednesday: Immortal Unchained by Lynsay Sands

Win It Wednesday: Immortal Unchained by Lynsay Sands Yesterday the 25th Argeneau book came out. Yes, twenty-five books in a vampire romance series. What’s better? They are enjoyable as stand-alones, and in smaller arcs (we’d suggest reading books 23, 24, and 25 together, for example). And VBC’s Amy gave Immortal Unchained a big thumbs up yesterday in her review. We love the way Lynsay Sands combines humor and heat to keep us hooked on...
