A CONSPIRACY OF KINGS. March now, please?

It's old, but Firebirds Rising. I loved the first anthology and really want to read the second.


Oh my GOD, DUH. And I just re-read Queen of Attolia, too.


finnikin is goot. it didn't shred me the way jellicoe did, but I was up all day reading it through, and all night thinking about the characters.

I've already read A CONSPIRACY OF KINGS (and it was every bit as awesome as you might imagine), so I have to second your eagerness to read the next D.M. Cornish. Love the Half-Continent books so much.

I've also been hearing great things about BRIGHTLY WOVEN, so am quite eager to get my hands on that one.


Finnikin of the Rock is amazing.

I had no idea Marchetta had written a fantasy. My socks are rolling up and down with excitement.



I'm pretty much dying. I'm so glad you share the love. And AWESOMOSITY has no 'e,' you're exactly right.


Finnikin is Amazing. You will weep, you will blush, you will laugh, you will love.

It looks like Suzanne Fisher's Incarceron is FINALLY making it to the U.S., but I think you've already read and loved it. There's been a bit of buzz regarding One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia, and then of course there's the new John Green book, Will Greyson, Will Greyson.

Er, whoops. It's actually spelled Will Grayson, Will Grayson and is coauthored by David Levithan. So, you know: awesome.


I loved Incarceron so much, I asked my friend in England to order the sequel, Sapphique. He's shipping it to me today. I'm looking forward to reading that when it arrives. Also looking forward to reading Finnikin of the Rock. I picked up an early copy, but haven't cracked it open because the story line didn't excite me. But after reading the comments here, I think I'd better move it up on the list.

Leila, because of your reviews here, I bought Kiss Me, Kill Me and Kisses and Lies. I haven't read them yet, but I plan to before the third comes out.

Also looking forward to Jennifer Echols' Forget You, which sounds as serious and intense as Going Too Far, one of my favorite reads in 2009.

Maybe you should look out for the next Robin Benway (Audrey Wait!) book, The Secrets of April, May and June.

Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves was amazing! I'd love to know what you think of that one.


I read one the other day that I thought was an interesting contrast to Marcelo in the Real World (which I read on your recommendation a few months ago.) It's called Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You. Author Peter Cameron.

My students have not liked Cornish's series. I'm attributing that to the fact that the books are very lengthy, and most of my horror readers want something shorter. That, and the lengthy glossary. Readers are different from place to place!


I finished The Ask and the Answer last night. If you haven't read this and The Knife of Never Letting Go yet, consider waiting until the third is published so you do not go through the WAITING. (When I got to the end of Lirael several years ago, I was very glad that I had not read them as they were published, because it would have been agony to wait for Abhorsen.)

So--I'm dying to read Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness, scheduled for September in the U.S. On a different note, I'm delighted to hear there will be a new Robin Benway novel this spring.
