The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon, hosted by Alexa and Katelyn, is an event dedicated to spreading the love for blogs + bloggers! It’s time dedicated to exploring the blogging community, leaving a comment or two, meeting new friends and fostering positivity among the bloggers of the community.

*HIGH FIVES*

YEEEEAHHHHH.

I decided not to pick one from each of the given categories because I’m a rebel (but really because I have a hard time talking about genre + I couldn’t pick a single blogger since there are sooo many awesome ones!). I just picked five book things that are making me happy right now.

And voila!

HAVE YOU SEEN THAT GORGEOUS COVER? Isn’t it frickin’ amazing? I just love the details of the beautiful illustration. You know why else it makes me happy? This book has other things I love: heists + unlikely team of criminals. Eeeeeek. I’m counting down the days when this will be out in the world!

I cannot stop thinking about this awesome comic. They are for sure QUEENS. I wrote about why they’re so awesome over here. You lookin’ for fantasy comic with kickass ladies who know how to fight and banter? Rat Queens are for you. They own a piece of my heart because of how awesome they are.

  • Jandy Nelson

Jandy Nelson is one of the sweetest person you could ever meet! When I think of my favorite books and authors, I always find myself thinking about Jandy and the beautiful book she wrote. I cannot stop talking about how beautiful I’ll Give You the Sun is. I just want more Jandy Nelson!

  • Patrick Ness

HIS NEW BOOK IS GONNA COME OUT IN A FEW MONTHS. THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HEREEvery time I see him tweet, I’m basically shouting CAN YOUR BOOK BE OUT SOON? WHY ARE YOU SO AMAZING, PATRICK NESS?

Panels is a new site find! It’s a site devoted to celebrating comics, and that’s the perfect site for me! I just love reading about people’s personal experiences and insights about the comics they read. It’s a great place that garners discussions from its posts. So, if you want a site that discusses comics, instead of it being just breaking news, Panels it is!

Do I get a high five for these favorites? What is on your high five’s list?

  1. Way to go outside the box! Everyone is talking about Jandy Nelson for this challenge, I am going to have to get reading!

  2. Rat Queens looks so kick-ass :D and I love all the hidden details in Six of Crows.

  3. I can’t wait to get my hands on Six of Crows! I know it’s going to be absolutely AMAZING!

    OH OH OH Six of Crows is going to be so epic I just pass out from the excitement. Have you read The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson?! If you liked I’ll Give You the Sun, then you DEFINITELY need to read it.

  5. Pamela says:

    Six of Crows! I’m waiting for that book to come out so I can be happy and do a very happy dance!

  6. Alexa S. says:

    I love this, Cee! Such a great take on this challenge :) That cover for Six of Crows is seriously fabulous – I think it’s one of the most beautiful covers I’ve seen so far this year!

  7. YAY! I’m so glad you discovered Panels. I write for them, and it’s SUCH a great group of super smart, passionate people. <3

    Ya know, I read Jandy Nelson years ago and I have her most recent book but haven’t read it yet! Everyone is talking about her :D

  9. I *cannot* get over how awesome the cover for Six of Crows is…… I literally have no words. <3

  10. Megan says:

    I CAN’T BELIEVE I DIDN’T KNOW THAT SIX OF CROWS HAD A COVER ALREADY. BUT HOLY SHIT, IT LOOKS GORGEOUS… AS EXPECTED. It’s so amazing how badass Leigh’s books always look. And am I the only one swooning over how the tips of towers blend in so beautifully with the background and the crow’s wings?! <333

    I just received my copy of The Divine + The Wicked, so I think I'll get started on that before I look at other comics, especially since my attention right now is already divided between so many things. But Rat Queens sounds awesome! I'm always up for some genius banter between characters. Just can't get enough of that. (Even the title for Vol. 1 is cool. "Sass and Sorcery" — BRING IT.)

    Kinda ashamed that I *still* haven't read anything by Patrick Ness. I keep saying that I'm going to, but I never get around to it. Which book of his would you recommend I start with first, though? A Monster Calls? The Chaos Walking trilogy? More Than This? I JUST CAN'T DECIDE.
