Happy February! Or rather, how in the world did January pass so fast? Possibly because I spent too much time clicking on links – here are a few that caught my attention recently:
This cover reveal post @ tor.com for Jay Kristoff’s new book led me to Meg’s cover redesign project. I am so impressed by her re-imagined covers for Rae Carson’s Fire & Thorns trilogy and Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle quartet. They’re gorgeous (and totally rival the originals!) and I really hope she does more.
And two free short story reads:
- Melissa Marr‘s “The Maiden Thief” @ tor.com: I haven’t read a Marr in a very long time, not since the earlier Wicked Lovely books, IIRC. I had a look at her website and it looks as though she’s releasing a new Wicked Lovely book this year, and has written a NA romance under another name. Kind of mixed reviews on the latter – has anyone read it?
- Sharon Lee‘s “The Wolf Bride” @ Splinter Universe – this is a loose prequel for her Archers Beach series, I believe. Which was a pretty solid trilogy, IMO – it’s a contemporary small-town fantasy, which is not exactly a common subgenre? I liked the first book best, but quite happily finished the next two.
