Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE HUNTRESS by Kate Quinn

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

* * * * *

My selection for this week is THE HUNTRESS by Kate Quinn.  Quinn’s The Alice Network was one of my favorite reads last year, so I was so excited to hear that she has another book coming out next year.  And this one just sounds incredible.  Nina, Ian, and Jordan all sound like characters that I’m going to fall in love with, and the idea that they’re hunting Nazis, especially the infamous “Huntress” has me on the edge of my seat waiting to get my hands on a copy of this book!

 

THE HUNTRESS by Kate Quinn

Publication Date:  February 26, 2019

 

From Goodreads

From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel, The Alice Network, comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America.

In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted…

Bold, reckless Nina Markova grows up on the icy edge of Soviet Russia, dreaming of flight and fearing nothing. When the tide of war sweeps over her homeland, she gambles everything to join the infamous Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on Hitler’s eastern front. But when she is downed behind enemy lines and thrown across the path of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, Nina must use all her wits to survive.

British war correspondent Ian Graham has witnessed the horrors of war from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials. He abandons journalism after the war to become a Nazi hunter, yet one target eludes him: the Huntress. Fierce, disciplined Ian must join forces with brazen, cocksure Nina, the only witness to escape the Huntress alive. But a shared secret could derail their mission, unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.

Seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride grows up in post WWII Boston, determined despite family opposition to become a photographer. At first delighted when her long-widowed father brings home a fiancée, Jordan grows increasingly disquieted by the soft-spoken German widow who seems to be hiding something. Armed only with her camera and her wits, Jordan delves into her new stepmother’s past and slowly realizes there are mysteries buried deep in her family. But Jordan’s search for the truth may threaten all she holds dear.

Top Ten Tuesday: My Bookstore Bucket List -10 Bookstores I’ve Always Wanted to Visit

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted to Visit.  I could only think of one library, the New York Public Library, so I decided to go with bookstores.  I’ve pretty much never met a bookstore that I didn’t want to wander through, but the bookshops below are what I would call my Bookstore Bucket List.  I’d really love to visit all of these some day.

 

* * * * *

 

10 Bookstores I’ve Always Wanted to Visit

 

1. SHAKESPEARE AND COMPANY, PARIS

 

 

Isn’t this the cutest shop?  I really blew this one too because I was in Paris

just a couple of years ago and forgot all about this gem.  Oh well, it’s an excuse to go back some day, right?

 

* * * * *

 

2. THE STRAND, NEW YORK CITY

 

 

I actually have visited The Strand before but it was a rushed shopping excursion, so I’d love to go back.

Why?  18 MILES OF BOOKS! Oh and lots of fabulous author events.

 

* * * * *

 

3.  THE LAST BOOKSTORE, LOS ANGELES

 

 

Another fail on my part because I’ve been to L.A. twice and didn’t know this bookstore existed until after my trips.

They sell new and used books and they also sell vinyl records. And how amazing is that book arch?!

 

* * * * *

 

4. POLITICS AND PROSE, WASHINGTON D.C.

 

 

This one is actually pretty doable since I live in Virginia, but what appeals to me about this bookstore is that it has a great mix of literary and political events. Alan Greenspan, for example, is speaking there on October 16th and Tahereh Mafi has an event there the next evening.  Plus, you just never know who you might run into while you’re browsing. You might turn the corner one day and find one of the Obamas shopping for a new read.

 

* * * * *

 

5. LIBRERIA ACQUA ALTA – VENICE

 

So much failing on my part because, again, I have traveled to Venice, Italy but because we were only there for a day, bookstore visiting was just not in the cards.  If I ever make it back to this incredible city, I will make time to visit this shop.  The store’s name means “Book Store of High Water” and, accordingly, they store many of their books in bathtubs, boats, and other waterproof basins.

 

* * * * *

 

6. LIVRARIA LELLO E IRMAO, PORTUGAL

 

How beautiful is that? This is a bookstore where I could actually see myself wandering around

and gawking at the beautiful building rather than browsing the book offerings.

 

* * * * *

 

7. BART’S BOOKS, OJAI, CALIFORNIA

 

I don’t even know exactly where in California this bookstore is, but it advertises itself as the largest outdoor bookstore in the world.

The idea of an outdoor bookstore intrigues me so I’d definitely be interested in visiting if my California travels happened to take me anywhere near it.

 

* * * * *

 

8. BARTER BOOKS, UK

 

 

This is another shop where I just think the architecture is so cool.  Barter Books is also supposed to be one of the

largest secondhand bookshops in Britain so I bet a bookworm could score some pretty great deals here.

 

* * * * *

 

9. THREE LIVES & CO., NEW YORK CITY

 

 

Three Lives & Co. is a neighborhood bookstore located in Greenwich Village.

It has been around since 1968 and I just love how wonderfully old fashioned it looks.

If I ever visited, I could see myself not wanting to leave.

 

* * * * *

 

10. THE BOOK ESCAPE, BALTIMORE, MARYLAND

 

This is one I’ve been meaning to visit since Baltimore is only a couple of hours away from me, but I just haven’t quite made it yet.

It just looks like such a cute shop and I hear they have a great selection of used and rare books.

 

* * * * *

Question:  What are some shops on your Bookstore Bucket List?

 

Can’t Wait Wednesday – SLAYER by Kiersten White

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

* * * * *

My selection for this week is SLAYER by Kiersten White.  I’ve always had a thing for books that are set in boarding schools anyway, but couple the boarding school setting with the fact that this is also basically a Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off and I’m completely sold. It sounds amazing!!!

 

SLAYER by Kiersten White

Publication Date:  January 8, 2019

 

From Goodreads

Into every generation a Slayer is born…

Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.

Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.

Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.

As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…

But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.

One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard.

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Big Books Gathering Dust on my Shelves Waiting for Me to Read Them

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018.

This week’s TTT topic is actually Top Ten Longest Books I’ve Ever Read, but I’ve already done a post like that recently and haven’t read any longer books since then, so I tweaked the topic a bit to focus on big books I own but haven’t read yet.  Today I’m sharing a list of 10 Big Books Gathering Dust on my Shelves Waiting for Me to Read Them.  Some of these, like IQ84, have been sitting on my shelves for years and I just keep bypassing them for shorter and less daunting reads.  Others, like the Maas books, are newer additions that I’m excited to get to, but still tend to side eye and skip over in favor of shorter reads.

* * * * *

Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE GIRL KING by Mimi Yu

My selection for this week is THE GIRL KING by Mimi Yu.  Unwitting sibling rivalry, a wolf shapeshifter, and deadly forbidden magic?!  Yes, please!

 

THE GIRL KING by Mimi Yu

Publication Date:  January 8, 2019

 

From Goodreads

Two sisters become unwitting rivals in a war to claim the title of Emperor in this sweeping tale of ambition, sacrifice and betrayal for readers of Sabaa Tahir and Alwyn Hamilton.

All hail the Girl King.

Sisters Lu and Min have always understood their places as princesses of the Empire. Lu knows she is destined to become the dynasty’s first female ruler, while Min is resigned to a life in her shadow. Then their father declares their male cousin Set the heir instead—a betrayal that sends the sisters down two very different paths.

Determined to reclaim her birthright, Lu goes on the run. She needs an ally—and an army—if she is to succeed. Her quest leads her to Nokhai, the last surviving wolf shapeshifter. Nok wants to keep his identity secret, but finds himself forced into an uneasy alliance with the girl whose family killed everyone he ever loved…

Alone in the volatile court, Min’s hidden power awakens—a forbidden, deadly magic that could secure Set’s reign…or allow Min to claim the throne herself. But there can only be one Emperor, and the sisters’ greatest enemy could turn out to be each other.

Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Authors I’d Love to Meet

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Authors I’d Love to Meet.  I remember doing a similar topic last year, but the great thing about being addicted to books is that I’m always discovering more authors that I’d love to meet.  I’m always interested in meeting authors that I think I could not only chat with about their books, but that (assuming I didn’t just sit there and flail speechlessly because I’m meeting my favorites), I could also have real conversations with about what’s going on in the world socially, politically, etc. and how real world events shape what they’re writing about at any given moment.  For those who are interested, here’s my list of authors from last year:  Top Top Authors I’m Dying to Meet.

And below are ten more authors that I think would be equally fascinating to meet someday…

 

* * * * *

10 Authors I’d Love to Meet

 

1. ALICE HOFFMAN

Alice Hoffman is the author of Practical Magic, The Rules of Magic, Faithful, and many more, and she has been a favorite of mine for years. Her prose is so lyrical, yet so natural and effortless at the same time.  I’d love to talk to her about where she gets her inspiration from for the magical stories she writes.

 

“Books may well be the only true magic.”

 

* * * * *

2. LIANE MORIARTY

LIane Moriarty is the author of the best selling Big Little Lies, which has also been made into a very popular TV series on HBO.  I’d love to chat with her about her success.  Did she ever imagine that she would basically become a household name when she was writing Big Little Lies?

 

“The good thing about writing a novel is that you’re creating an imaginary world and can take a break when you need to.”

 

* * * * *

3. LEIGH BARDUGO

Leigh Bardugo is the author of two of my favorites series, the Grisha trilogy and the Six of Crows duology.  I’d love to talk to her about how she came up with the whole idea of the Grishaverse, as well as her writing process.

 

“I think the first trick to writing a feminist work is to write plenty of women.  That way you get to write characters, instead of worrying about paradigms.”

 

* * * * *

4. MICHELLE OBAMA

I just adore Michelle Obama.  She’s so intelligent and an all around class act, and I’m beyond excited that her book is coming out soon.  I’d love to meet her not just because of her status as a former First Lady, but just because I think she would be so fascinating to talk to about pretty much any topic.

 

“Failure is an important part of your growth and developing resilience.  Don’t be afraid to fail.”

 

* * * * *

5. GEORGE R. R. MARTIN

I think it would be somewhat intimidating to meet George R. R. Martin, but I’d still love to, mainly because I’d love to ask him about his process and if he ever has regrets about killing off some of his characters.

“I have a huge emotional attachment to characters I’ve created, especially the viewpoint characters.”

 

* * * * *

6. TOMI ADEYEMI

Tomi Adeyemi is the author of the immensely popular Children of Blood and Bone novel.  I’d love to meet her and talk about what comes next for the characters I fell in love with in the first book of this series.

 

“I want a little black girl to pick up my book one day and see herself as the star.  I want her to know that she’s beautiful and she matters, and she can have a crazy magical adventure even if an ignorant part of the world tells her she can never be Hermione Granger.”

 

* * * * *

7. BECKY ALBERTALLI

I’d love to meet Becky to thank her for writing wonderful books filled with some of the most relatable characters I’ve ever come across.  I can’t wait to read her upcoming collaboration with Adam Silvera.

 

“People really are like houses with vast rooms and tiny windows and maybe it’s a good thing, the way we never stop surprising each other.” (Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda)

 

* * * * *

8. KATHERINE ARDEN

Katherine Arden is the author of one of my favorite series, The Winternight Trilogy.  I’d love to talk to her about her inspiration for this series and to see if she would give me a sneak peek of the final book, which I’m dying to get my hands on but it doesn’t come out until January 2019.

 

“Every time you take one path, you must live with the memory of the other: of a life left unchosen. Decide as seems best, one course or the other; each way will have its bitter with its sweet.” (The Girl in the Tower)

 

* * * * *

9. DAN BROWN

Credit: Dan Courter

 

I’d love to meet Dan Brown, mainly just to see how many more ideas he has for Robert Langdon books or if he’ll be introducing a new series anytime soon.

 

“I’m fascinated by power, especially veiled power.  Shadow power. The National Security Agency. The National Reconnaissance Office. Opus Dei.  The idea that everything happens for reasons we’re not quite seeing.”

 

* * * * *

10. RICK RIORDAN

I’d love to meet Rick Riordan to thank him for writing books that have made my son love reading.

 

“Being a hero doesn’t mean you are invincible.  It means you are brave enough to stand up and do what’s right.”

 

* * * * *

 

Question:  So there’s my 10.  What authors are you dying to meet?  Would any of mine make your list?

Can’t Wait Wednesday – NINE PERFECT STRANGERS by Liane Moriarty

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

* * * * *

My selection for this week is NINE PERFECT STRANGERS by Liane Moriarty.  Why?  Because it’s Liane Moriarty of course!   And also because I’m in the mood for a fun read and something tells me this novel is going to be exactly what I’m looking for.  I’m not sure how but somehow that synopsis manages to sound quirky and dangerous all at the same time, so I’m very much game to dive in and see what is going on at Tranquillum House.

 

NINE PERFECT STRANGERS by Liane Moriarty

Publication Date:  November 6, 2018

 

From Goodreads

Could ten days at a health resort really change you forever? In Liane Moriarty’s latest page-turner, nine perfect strangers are about to find out…

Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.

Frances Welty, the formerly best-selling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart, and an exquisitely painful paper cut. She’s immediately intrigued by her fellow guests. Most of them don’t look to be in need of a health resort at all. But the person that intrigues her most is the strange and charismatic owner/director of Tranquillum House. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer – or should she run while she still can?

It’s not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question.

This week’s TTT topic is Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read.  This is basically a post of shame for me because I have no excuse whatsoever as to why I haven’t gotten around to these books yet.  With the exception of The Archived, all of these books have been sitting on my shelf for at least a year now.  I’m chalking up to the fact that I am easily distracted away from the older books on my shelves by the shiny new books as they arrive.  I’m so awful about that that I have even picked up and started several of these, only to set them down and promptly forget about them as soon as I get my hands on a new release.

THE RUIN OF KINGS by Jenn Lyons

Publication Date:  February 5, 2019

 

From Goodreads

There are the old stories. And then there’s what actually happens.

Kihrin is a bastard orphan who grew upon storybook tales of long-lost princes and grand quests. When he is claimed against his will as the long-lost son of a treasonous prince, Kihrin finds that being a long-lost prince isn’t what the storybooks promised.

Far from living the dream, Kihrin finds himself practically a prisoner, at the mercy of his new family’s power plays and ambitions. He also discovers that the storybooks have lied about a lot of other things things, too: dragons, demons, gods, prophecies, true love, and how the hero always wins.

Then again, maybe he’s not the hero, for Kihrin isn’t destined to save the empire.

He’s destined to destroy it . . .

Uniting the worldbuilding of a Brandon Sanderson with the storytelling verve of a Patrick Rothfuss, debut author Jenn Lyons delivers an entirely new and captivating fantasy epic. Prepare to meet the genre’s next star.
