I can finally reveal the new cover of THE NIGHT WEAVER, which will be republished by @vesuvianmedia in October! It's a gorgeous piece by Marcela Bolivar, which just screams SHADOW GROVE. 😁 And it's just in time for StokerCon. EEEP!

#happytuesday! Today, I thought I‘d celebrate Kendare Blake‘s #yahorror duology, which is actually so underrated. Anna is one of the most complex characters I‘ve ever come across in the YA genre. Definitely worth a read if you love #ghoststories 😉

Shley9225 Ohh I‘ve only ever seen the cover with the white dress on it. Is this some sort of special edition? 4mo

As the Northern Hemisphere enter spring, down here in the Southern Hemisphere, we‘re heading into #autumn. It‘s my favorite time of year (not too hot and not too cold). I thought I‘d celebrate the new season with an underrated #ya #horrornovel! 🍂🍁 It is loosely based on a fairy tale, but it‘s dark and rich and definitely a book you should read with the lights on. 😊

2017 was a really bad #reading year for me. Where I usually read 120 books in a year, I struggled to hit the 25 mark. So, I‘ve decided that 2018 will be bigger and better than ever before. My first goal is to get Cassandra Clare‘s books off my TBR list by the end of January 2018, even if it kills me. 😊

Do you have any lofty #bookish goals for 2018 yet?

Doctor Sleep: A Novel | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

I‘ve been more inclined to listen to audiobooks lately, mostly because I‘ve had so little time to read. At least, this way, I can get my reading fix. 😊 Doctor Sleep was a magnificent sequel! I loved the narrator‘s different voices for the various characters, and the plot was just fantastic. Definitely give this one a shot if you‘re looking for a good read!

It's frightening how often I need to quote the opening sentence of Muti Nation (not pictured) these days, even though it's not a WWII novel. That said, I firmly believe that through learning from the past there's still hope for a better tomorrow.
These are some of my WWII YA historical fiction books, and I cannot recommend them enough.

Anne of Green Gables | L. M. Montgomery

Growing up, #books were scarce, so I missed out on quite a few good reads. It was only a couple of years ago that I finally read Jane Eyre, and oh! What a beautiful book it is. So, this weekend I'm going to try Anne of Green Gables, because it's another book I never had the opportunity to read as a child.
