This month’s secret sister package was full of fun and yum! I’m excited to read a book with such a colorful cover. Chocolate is always great. And I’m not sure if you can see it in my terrible photo, but the shot glass features Haku and Chihiro from Complexwish. So awesome!
OK, I really have to take a break from Book Outlet because this is getting ridiculous! And my budget is shot, so here’s my last spread from them. At least for a little while.
This small art book was another Kickstarter from Ari Mulch, a local art student.
As I’ve been behind with my last several posts, it’s fitting that this book haul post is a week late as well. But I am really excited about all of these, so I decided to go ahead and share. Plus, a second post this evening will showcase the book mail I received this past week! So much amazing mail!!
I volunteered to help promote this book because the cover is fantastic and the summary sounds like something I would pick up. Unfortunately, I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but hope to in the near future! What do you think?
So I just realized that I never posted about the upcoming SFF books that published in March! There goes my plan to extol their amazing-ness before publication. But better late than never! Plus, I’ve already scheduled my April releases post. Now on to the books 🙂
I’m finally feeling better enough to create a post for all the lovely book mail I received 2 weeks ago! This crazy weather has been killing my sinuses and draining all of my energy.
In Book 3, when Lily, aka the “witch queen” and bat-rider extraordinaire Thorn travel to Sultanate of Fire, things go terribly wrong. Instead of celebrating a reunion with their old friend K’leef, they are thrust into royal murder, an epic quest, and a deadly battle for the throne. While investigating the murder, Lily learns shocking truths about her life that could destroy all she has achieved. Yet, among the ruins of her old life, she has the opportunity to become someone greater . . . and more terrifying. Thorn and the magnificent bat, Hades, join the timid K’leef and the idiotic Gabriel Solar in a quest to find a phoenix. These fire birds are the key to saving the sultanate, but they nest within the Shardlands. The boys must defeat not only the monsters of that magical wilderness, but also rivals eager to claim the throne for themselves. Rivals that include a renegade from House Shadow . . . Chilling surprises, ghostly encounters, and belly laughs are just some of the treats in store for readers of this burning-hot desert adventure.
Since learning I could listen to audiobooks at work, my two favorites, so far, have been Jay Kristoff’s Nevernight and Godsgrave! There was even a scene in Godsgrave that I really wanted to recreate. I let it percolate in my mind for a little bit before sketching it out and stippling the entire thing. Although this piece was on 9×12 paper and relatively small, the tiny dots made my hand cramp up and it took a bit longer to finish. But I can officially say that I have completed it 🙂 I’m so proud of my little picture.
