Winterlight | Kristen Britain
post image

Today I received an original painted preliminary sketch for Kristen Britain‘s novel, Winterlight. The artist is Donato Giancola and I‘ve admired his work for quite some time. I have been reading the Green Rider series since I was a kid and grew up with this being a touchstone during troubled times. It brings me so much joy that I will get to see a piece of this world captured so well on my wall. #donatogiancolaart #greenriderseries #winterlight

Green Rider | Kristen Britain
post image

I can‘t tell you why exactly I inevitably return to the Green Rider series. I‘ve reread this series more times than I can count and I never get tired of Karigan‘s adventures. Maybe it‘s because it was the first adult fantasy novel I devoured on one of my family‘s road trips. Who knows? But I love even listening to Ellen Archer read it to me. #greenrider #audiobooks #kristenbritain

Cast in Ruin | Michelle Sagara
post image

I don‘t know why, but I‘ve been on a #chroniclesofelantra kick the last few weeks. Working my way through the series and today‘s volume is Cast in Ruin. I suspect it might be the level of sass that each character possesses that has drawn me back to this series. It‘s a good distraction while I try to find inspiration for #nanowrimo next month. #castinruin #michellesagara #lazysunday #booksandcoffee

hermyknee Your mug is simply amazing. 1y
RavenRenegade @hermyknee Thank you! I was standing in line at the bookstore and it was on the display next to me. I HAD to have it. It makes me laugh each time I pull it out of the cupboard. 😂 1y

Another inspiring book event in the books and the first one I‘ve attended in 2020. This one was a conversation between #madelinemiller and #veschwab about Victoria‘s new book, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. I absolutely loved this book and I can‘t wait to reread it.She mentioned there were some changes from the ARCs. And now I need to see them in action! ❤️ #iremeberaddie #theinvisiblelifeofaddielarue

For the first time since before the lockdowns began in March, I stopped by one of my favorite bookstores. @aeeklund and I were there to pick up the new #nikitagill book, but we ended up with a bit more. Everyone was good about staying socially distanced, masks on, and shopping windows limited to 30 minutes. My heart is happy and now it‘s back to self isolation. #shoplocal #independentbookstores #auroraburning #sistersofswordandsong

The Queen's Bargain | Anne Bishop
post image
Pickpick

I can‘t begin to describe how delighted I was to slip back into the Black Jewels Realms during my self-isolation time. Once again, Anne Bishop has woven together a dark fantasy tale that I could read over and over again. And I probably will. This has the echoes of what made me fall in love with the series to begin with. Magic, love, and the humor found in the every day moments. All wrapped up with that dark fantasy edge. ❤️

World That We Knew | Alice Hoffman

@aeeklund and I had the pleasure of attending the Alice Hoffman book event where she spoke about her new book, The World That We Knew. I grew up watching Practical Magic, a movie based on a book that she wrote, and it was a dream to have the opportunity to talk to her. Apparently, she is working on the third book now in the #practicalmagic series and I am so excited! #alicehoffman #bookevents #bookwormlife #theworldthatweknew

As of last night, I have now met 3 of the original cast members of Star Trek. George Takei was sweet and greeted everyone warmly. I think he was amused by my entourage that accompanied me to get my book signed. I‘m looking forward to reading it! #georgetakei #theycalledusenemy

The weather is cooling down in the Pacific NW, but it‘s not cold enough to keep me indoors yet. As I struggled to pick a book this morning, I realized I was definitely in an assassin mood. That could be from lack of coffee though. #amreading #godsgrave #autumnreads #booksandcoffee
