Book Blurb:

Startling, unusual, and yet irresistably readable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment.

Best Books of August: Book Lovers Pick of the Litter

It’s that time again!

We’re back for another edition of “The Pick of the Litter”–the Book Lovers chance to squee a bit about the books we loved reading during the month.

Let the adoration begin…

Amanda: Storm Glass by Maria V. Snyder

I loved the Study series. Poison Study being a favourite of mine and Storm Glass was a great beginning to the Glass trilogy. I was almost afraid to start this series because the Study series was so good. Naturally I’m kicking myself now because I need more. Thankfully I have the next two books on my TBR.

I just love her world and her magic. I want to become a glassmaker at the moment and make a Swan.

For Sophia Stevenson, there’s no going back to the life she knew. She never asked for the powers that make her a precious commodity to the secret society of Illuminists—and their archenemies.

Captain Bion Donkova would give anything to possess the powers that have fallen in Sophia’s lap. If only the beautiful, infuriating woman could stay out of trouble, he wouldn’t have to keep coming to her rescue…

Bion and Sophia have friction to spare—and nothing fuels a forbidden passion better than danger…

Book Blurb:

Crescent City, 1934

In Crescent City, the dead are always close.

At the point of death, people can choose to become Ghosts, tethered to the living. They can remain with their loved ones as invisible companions—or in the case of Crescent City’s ghostly mayor, remain in office forever.

Being a P.I. in Crescent City isn’t easy or glamorous. Luckily Lola Starke has an edge: her Ghost, Aubrey, who can gather valuable clues from other Ghosts in the Ether.

The Book Lovers Pick of the Litter for July

Otherwise known as the “squee on me, people” post. Read carefully, I did NOT say “pee on me”. This is the “picks” post and not the “pans” post. If we ever decide to do a snarky “pans” post, Cass is going to have to write it.

I thought we’d try a “which books we squeed over the most this month” post. This is it. The books The Book Lovers loved in July. What we read in July, not necessarily what was published, or what we reviewed.

Fangirling was permitted and even encouraged. Oohing and aahing begins here.

Anna: Less than a Gentleman by Kerrelyn Sparks: I may not have yet read Sparks’ very famous pnr series but I’m definitely in love with her Historical Romance one! I read last year the first book in the Historical series and I immediately fell in love with Sparks’ writing style and her ability to …
