Maggie Stiefvater is one of my favorite YA authors. Her Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy saved weres entirely for me (sorry, Jacob Black).
I liked her Scorpio Races, but I loooooved The Raven Boys. Maggie writes beautifully, and she creates characters that make it hard for me to breathe, know what I mean?
Now, she’s giving away Raven Boys bookplates. With art she creates. I can’t even.
She tweeted directions on how to obtain your own sweet plate, so I’m doing it.
I read The Raven Boys via NetGalley, but I immediately ordered a copy when I finished the galley. For now, here’s my pic of TRB.
I am so excited for the quartet she’s working on.
And I can’t wait for the bookplate and the shiny new hardcover I’ll put it in!
I was perusing my goodreads TBR list, and I noticed something. Then my head got all spinny.
Check it out:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone. One of my very most super favorite books of 2011.
Shadow and Bone. Haven’t read it yet.
The Book of Blood and Shadow. Haven’t read yet. But, I like this cover more than this one.
And finally, rounding back up to Laini Taylor,
The unfinished cover for Days of Blood and Starlight.
You can see, then, how I got a little spinny, yes?
I’m a megafan of John Mayer. Even through his skeevy days, his awkward interactions with paparazzi, through short hair and long, bubblegum pop to bluesy rock- I love JM.
So I was super excited to see the album art for his new record- Born and Raised.
When I first saw it, it looked familiar- like I’d seen it before.
No. That’s not it.
No. That’s not it either. Less it, even.
I don’t know why those two albums came to mind- except they’re both kind of busy and stylized.
Well, then what?
Is this a new John Mayer album, or a steampunk novel?
Only time will tell.
