Georgetown Texas Public Library

The best little library in Texas. We like books. And tea. And coffee, the internet, and comics. But also books.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry?

I have found many people.  The real question is, have I found all the people.

Yoo-Hoo

Libraries count, right?

I dropped the ball on posting some cover love on the 10th, but there is no time like the present, so here we go!

 I’m a huge fan of Garth Nix’s ABHORSEN trilogy, so when I found out there was going to be a fourth instalment there was a lot of happy-dancing.  There are a couple covers for CLARIEL. This is the one published by Allen & Unwin

And this is the one published by HarperCollins:

Now normally I tend to gravitate towards covers dominated by an image of a character (like my own *cough*), but I am in LOVE with the HarperCollins cover. The burning symbol makes me think the action of the HUNGER GAMES, but the image of the city and the girl in the dress grounds it as epic fantasy. AND THAT IS A DRAGON BEHIND HER!! Needless to say, I can’t wait to read this one.

From Goodreads:

Clariel is the daughter of the one of the most notable families in the Old Kingdom, with blood relations to the Abhorsen and, most importantly, to the King. When her family moves to the city of Belisaere, there are rumors that her mother is next in line for the throne. However, Clariel wants no part of it—a natural hunter, all she ever thinks about is escaping the city’s confining walls and journeying back to the quiet, green world of the Great Forest.

But many forces conspire against Clariel’s dream. A dangerous Free Magic creature is loose in the city, her parents want to marry her off to a killer, and there is a plot brewing against the old and withdrawn King Orrikan. When Clariel is drawn into the efforts to find and capture the creature, she discovers hidden sorcery within herself, yet it is magic that carries great dangers. Can she rise above the temptation of power, escape the unwanted marriage, and save the King?
