Growing up on Forge’s streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that’s not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs.

But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she’s not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he’s persistent—and darkly attractive—and Kyra can’t quite resist his pull.

Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.

When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival—and vengeance—might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra’s past that threatens to reshape both their lives.

Why I’m waiting?

I am in need of this book. Thieves, assassins, and a crew? It’s everything I loveeeeee. Also, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats? That’s such a badass image!

I’m not much of high fantasy reader, but as long as there’s those three things I love in a book (thieves, assassins, people coming together as a family), I am holding my hand out, begging for it.

What books are you waiting on?

I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. Add all of them to your font collection! Let it grow!

To the person who found my blog with the question “what is the font on Rebel Belle,” today is your lucky day! I, the font sleuth, have found it! *SQUEEEAALLLS*

Rachel Hawkins - Rebel Belle

Yesssss, I did! Everybody dance with meeee! :D (Though, if you’re wondering about “Rachel Hawkins” one, then you’re out of lucky because I only found the title font.)

May 15, 2014 • Cee • Holy Mother Cover

holymothercover

Inspired by What She ReadsPure Imagination Blog, and Stacked.

I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though? 

Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe) and discuss cover changes.

(A big special thanks to Georgie at What She Reads for bestowing me this fabulous name and to Charlotte at Gypsy Reviews for creating the beautiful feature banner you see before you.)

COVER CHANGE: Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Today, we look at the cover Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano!

Two years ago, sixteen-year-old Jamie Henry breathed a sigh of relief when a judge sentenced his older sister to juvenile detention for burning down their neighbor’s fancy horse barn. The whole town did. Because Crazy Cate Henry used to be a nice girl. Until she did a lot of bad things. Like drinking. And stealing. And lying. Like playing weird mind games in the woods with other children. Like making sure she always got her way. Or else.

But today Cate got out. And now she’s coming back for Jamie.

Because more than anything, Cate Henry needs her little brother to know the truth about their past. A truth she’s kept hidden for years. A truth she’s not supposed to tell. 

Trust nothing and no one as you race toward the explosive conclusion of this gripping psychological thriller from the William C. Morris Award-winning author of Charm & Strange.

Why I’m waiting?

I absolutely adored Stephanie Kuehn’s first book, Charm & Strange, so I’m obviously going to be excited for Complicit.

Firstly, that cover is insanely gorgeous. I love the match and the edges burning and the boy in smoke. It’s such a very powerful cover. I couldn’t help but go, “well, damn” when I saw it.

Secondly, that synopsis gets me pumped up. And now she’s coming back for Jamie. Eeeek. I am sooo ready for the sibling dynamic. I’m not usually a fan of psychological thrillers, but there’s something about Stephanie Kuehn’s writing and storytelling abilities that make me hold my hands out and ask for more.
