Winter's Passage (Iron Fey Series)  Well, I've tried to get a few books started here.

 

This one I started and finished over the weekend here.  It was just a short novella to go with the YA series, Iron Fey which I just started.

 

 

 

 

I started this one on Friday and am only 140 pages into it.  I do like the characters and looking forward to see where they go. :smileyhappy:

 

 

I'm going to be starting Ann Aguirre's third Corine Solomon book here on Monday! :smileyhappy: Yeah!  I love this series and Ann Aguirre.  So, I'm looking forward to it.

DO NOT BUY ANY READER UNTIL AFTER May 23rd. B&N announced the release of a new nook , they will give full details on the 23rd. Rumor has it that it may be a nookcolor with an eink reader or something in the middle of the two.

Cover Image


The quality of cover art that they are putting out for YA is amazing.  I know how visual teenagers are, and how important an eye catching cover is for that market, but WOW.  This cover is just breathtakingly awesome.  I'm a wee bit jealous this hasn't caught on more in the UF genre.  Tramp stamped chicks in leather pants and high heeled boots are getting a little old you know.  My book shelf looks like it has a serious fetish going on.

It's *so* pretty, isn't it?  The cover faeries were very good to her.

 

YA cover art has trends too--remember the "girl holding things" trend?

 

The trend I am really loving right now is the "girl wearing incredible dresses I want to own" trend.

 

For example:

 

 

The Girl in the Steel Corset

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Vespertine

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mephisto Covenant

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~Suzi


 

I know!  The cloths are so pretty, but I'm in total mom mode at this point in my life and every time I see one of those covers my thought order is this:

 

1.) I want that dress.  

 

2.) What the heck is she doing in the woods/dungeon/dirty alley dressed like that?  She is going to ruin that dress.  I bet it's already torn.  Do you know how much money a dress like that cost?  

 

Lame I tell ya. :smileytongue:


2. Well you know, it's a rip off most female emo/goth/electropop music videos. I always watch them and figure most of the budget was spent on the one shot clothes price. You just know there's little salvageable of them after the shoot.

First Grave on the Right 

 

    I myself finally was able to purchase this book also, OMG you guys weren't kidding about how good this book is.  I'm about half way through the book and I have a hard time putting it down. I'll be cooking with one hand and reading the book in the other:smileyvery-happy:

 

  It's a definite must have!

Re: What are you currently reading?

I think I'm a little behind the curve here, but I just started Rosemary and Rue (October Daye Series #1). I'm not getting into as easily as I'd like though. Ok, so I'm only 60 pages into so far, but it's not yet holding my interest. 

 

Someone please tell me this book and the series get better.....

Re: What are you currently reading?

It is really good.  It took me awhile to finally begin the story, but I love it so far.  It blends mystery, intrigue, romance and everything else it seems.  Hope you get to read it sometime and thanks for the invite to the Paranormal Pub.  See you around.
