Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect: The Potterverse

Time again for more Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect! Where Book Lovers from across the world stand in solidarity for the supporting cast. Those individuals that make the story and keep us coming back even when the protagonist needs a good smack (cough Harry Potter cough). Hear our anthem! Because everyone deserves top billing now and then.

As I just-so-happened to mention, certain protagonists tend to be extremely smackable, and all-around unlikeable. Which is exactly why we’re diving back into The Potterverse. Because really, who read Harry Potter for, well, Harry Potter? Nobody, that’s who.

Marlene: Have you started drinking early? Do you really want to dive into the Potterverse sober? I can, but it’s painful. Really. Let me start.

Jackie: Go ahead. That was too long ago for specifics for me.

Marlene: The butcher’s bill at the last battle was much too high. To begin with. …

Sometimes love is an accident.

This time, it’s a strategy.

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly–so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don’t get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

But that is precisely what she gets.

Because Robert Blaisdell, the Duke of Clermont, is not fooled. When Minnie figures out what he’s up to, he realizes there is more to than her spectacles and her quiet ways. And he’s determined to lay her every secret bare before …

Hello Book Lovers! I’m still filling in for Anna while she’s buried in wedding preparations. Maybe I should have paid more attention when she told us she was taking a leave of absence from the blog, because I really have no idea how long she’ll be gone….

On the bright side, this is motivating me to look into blogging apps. Because now I can’t just not post when traveling. (Which is why there are random weeks where I am not snarking at you all. Do you miss me when I am gone?) Blogging from my iPad’s mobile browser is an exercise in frustration. Any suggestions? There appear to be a million of them, and the reviews are not anywhere approaching helpful.

On to this week’s Cravings! Not much to choose from. Which is probably for the best. I’m busy re-reading Magic Rises for the umpteenth time.

Marlene: Elysian Fields (Sentinels of New …

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty’s anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.

Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen’s Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her …

Hello Book Lovers! I’m filling in for Anna while she’s buried in wedding preparations. After burning through many must reads last week, I’m bound-and-determined to get a little sleep. But publishers just keep on releasing more books! Time to add to our never-ending TBR piles. Up this week….

Stella: What the Bride Wore by Jade Lee.

Grant Benton, Earl of Crowle, finally has the funds he always pretended to have, and what he wants now is a woman. That woman is Lady Irene Knopp, who spends her days helping debutantes plan their weddings. A recent widow, Irene longs for love again, but she’s afraid to risk her heart, especially to the notorious Grant Benton.

I just read my very first Jade Lee story, Winning a Bride, the #2.5 novella in her Bridal Favors series. It was lovely. I loved the fesity, unorthodox heroine and the wonderfully tortured hero, so I’m excited and can’t …
