BUT FIRST, HAVE YOU SEEN THE AMAZING NEW TRAILER FOR LINGER?? Maggie Stiefvater made this herself (including the music - is there anything she can't do?), and seriously, it's brilliant. The music, the imagery, the everything. I don't know if I've ever been so excited to read a book! I am planning on re-reading Shiver in July and I'm trying to hold myself to that. Watching this makes me want to grab Shiver and sequester myself in the reading room.
RIGHT? Brilliant. Linger will be out July 20th, so if you haven't read Shiver yet, get thee to the bookstore! Now! Go! *shoos you off to the bookstore*
Okay, so back to the rain-bow... this week I'd just like to talk about some books in my TBR list. I have to make a big ol' book order this week and I'd LOVE to get some suggestions from you all. I don't know if you all know, but Mr. R and I are adopting our second child, so I'll be on a VERY, VERY LONG plane ride soon and will need some good reading. I know I'm definitely taking the final book in the Percy Jackson series, but I will need more than that for our travels. (I should also mention that I'll be on somewhat of a "New Mama Leave" during the month of June, but Meadow will have lots of help, and I probably won't be able to stay away that long.)
So, here are some things on my book-order list so far:
*Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr
*The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
*The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
*Shadow of the Sun by Laura Kreitzer
What am I missing? Any new books that I should be adding to the list? Or one of your old favorites? I'm turning the tables this week and asking for your recommendations!
P.S. You might have noticed that Twidays took a break last week. It might be taking a break lots of Fridays coming up. In fact, Meadow and I are thinking of only posting twice a week during the summer. We have a lot going on and rather than give you less-than-stellar posts, we're just going to post a little bit less. But, I'll still be here with weekly recommendations and we'll have a book-related discussion once a week too. And then if something comes up that we have to talk about, we'll just post when we want. Because we're whimsical like that. *wink*
And, don't forget our whimsical book club! Hex Hall is the book for the month, so read up and leave your thoughts in the comment box on the sidebar! The discussion will be posted on May 28th. We can't wait to hear from you!
