Illusionarium

Illusionarium

Synopsis via Goodreads:

From the author of Entwined, a brilliantly conceived adventure through an alternate London. This sweeping, cinematic tale of an apprentice scientist desperate to save his family—and his world—is The Night Circus meets Pixar.

Through richly developed parallel worlds, vivid action, a healthy dose of humor, and gorgeous writing, Heather Dixon spins a story that is breathtaking and wholly original.

“. . . is The Night Circus meets Pixar.”

OHMIGOODNESS.

(Also, does anyone else think that the guy on the cover is trying to cop a feel with his right hand? Because really.)

Perfect Ruin

Perfect Ruin (Internment Chronicles, #1)

LOOK.

LOOK AT IT.

ISN’T IT THE MOST GORGEOUS THING YOUR MORTAL EYES HAVE EVER SEEN???

Seriously. Like, I think this is probably the most beautiful cover I have ever seen. To me, absolutely none of any of the other books I’ve read even compare when it comes to cover beautifulness.

I just really, really, needed to fangirl over this novel.

Because 1.) it’s by Lauren DeStefano, and she’s, like, bloody amazing and 2.) look what it’s about:

Synopsis via Goodreads:

On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan’s older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.

I want it.

Scratch that. I need it.

I think I have completed my fangirling quota for the next, oh, five years?

(LOL. That’s such a lie. It will NEVER be full.)

First off, it’s about AN ISLAND in the SKY . . .

Yup, I’m dead.

To me, this is going to be one of those rare YA books that I do not read  for the (hopefully) amazing love interest that makes me swoon with envy. I don’t give two hoots about the guys in this novel. I just want to read about Morgan and Pen.

That’s it.

Between the Lives

Between the Lives

For all of us living in America who have been drooling over this novel since it was first announced on Jessica Shirvington’s website, I must ask the dire question, When is it going to get here??! And can it go any faster??!

When? When? WHEN?

I mean, come on. After reading The Violet Eden Chapters, having to wait STILL for Endless to come out and who knows how long for the next one . . . throw me a bone why don’t you!! I’m dying here!

Because when you write a book as good as Embrace, it becomes a crime to withhold future books.

That is all.

But in the meantime, this shall be me. Waiting patiently for a Shirvington book.
