LOVED this book!!! And yes, the title cracks me up every time I look at it.

Jess

Speaking of the title (which cracked me up every time I looked at it), I also loved a lot of the chapter titles - mostly when I *got* which song they were from.

Leila

Glad to hear that other people Felt The Love!

And, yeah, I had to look up some of the chapter titles -- including this one, which is made of the Winningest Win That Ever Won.

Kelly Fineman

It's not just you. The title makes me sing Sir Elton's song every time I see it. I haven't read the book yet, but I didn't realize his name was Samhain Corvus (that first word is pronounced Sow-en, I believe, and is the word for the old harvest festival, but I'll bet he's just Sam, and his middle name is Crow) - HELLO SYMBOLISM!

Must find this one and read it.

Oh. my. gosh. I laughed my guts out when you mentioned Elton John. I haven't read this, but now maybe I should. Still laughing....

Maggie

Oh my gosh, thank you for mentioning the title and Elton John!! NO ONE else (at least the blogs I read/people I talk with) had mentioned, and yes, that song gets stuck in my head everytime I see the cover.

Reading this one right now and loving it. There are some books you can just TELL-- they're a step up from average, and reading it is pure delight.

Erica

Sounds like a great book--it's definitely going on my TBR list. I'm surprised you found so many people who didn't get the title; Elton John popped in my head immediately.

Leila

Kelly, yes: His mother named him that to get back at his father, who was absent at Sam's birth. Later on, we get a bit more about his middle name... (The pronunciation is mentioned, too.)

To all of you who haven't read it: GET CRACKING!

Calamity Jane

You know how sometimes something stupid makes you start avoiding a book even though everyone else says that you should really read it?
For me that stupid something is character's names. Like...Wynter intead of Winter or Jayné instead of Zhane or Jane or in this case, Samhain Corvus Lacroix. My firt reaction was "seriously?". And I get it must be a joke, but still it makes me cringe everytime I read it.

Sally

I bought this book late last year for the title alone. I love it and every time I think about this book I hear the Elton John song in my head! It's currently on my tbr pile but it's getting bumped up because of your review. So thanks.
Sally.

Jenn

So happy I was finally able to get my hands on this book! Not since Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief series have I met a cast of characters that I liked as much. I do hope as well that the author decides to write a sequel, because I want to play in this playground again. In the mean time, I will have to content myself with making a playlist of all the chapter titles.
