Book Bits: Iron Knight, Clockwork Prince, Darkest Surrender, Iron Seas, Contest Roundup & more

Book Bits: Iron Knight, Clockwork Prince, Darkest Surrender, Iron Seas, Contest Roundup & more Trailer time with Julie Kagawa and Cassandra Clare Since the last Book Bits we’ve gotten two delicious trailers for YA books. First, we have the trailer for The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa (which I suggest you pre-order). As one who is firmly Team Ash, I’m particularly excited about this book, but I also love the inclusion that the reason things are messed up for him is, of course, because of...

Giveaway: Nyx in the House of Night [CLOSED]

Giveaway: Nyx in the House of Night [CLOSED] UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Congrats to Brooke D. on winning Nyx in the House of Night. Despite my less-than-favorable review of Awakened, like many of you I’ve stuck with the House of Night series. One of the things — in addition to my love for Stark circa book 6 — that keeps me coming back is the mythology element. P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast have crafted a vampire world based...

Review: Awakened by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast (House of Night #8)

Review: Awakened by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast (House of Night #8) Awakened (House of Night #8) P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast Published: Jan. 4, 2011 (St. Martin’s) Purchase at: Book Depository or Amazon Rating (out of 5): 2 stars I have a strange relationship with the House of Night series. I like the plot, but I get very frustrated with the way it’s told. My problem is not enough happens in a single book. Many of the novels should be combined; the stories in...

We were out of town for family stuff, then caught some sort of bug at the airport. Still feeling crummy, but not enough to keep us from reading and digging up excellent giveaways from our blogger friends. Suzanne Johnson is giving away two just-released books filled with vampire goodness: P.C....
