“I’ve left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.”

So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the bestselling authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares.– Goodreads.

It took me a whole week to finish this and I keep telling myself it’s because it was so good that I didn’t want it to end, but it was probably because I’ve just been watching a lot of tennis and drinking in a lot of beer gardens (oh, hello, Sun). That said, the former statement was true too. I loved this one as much, if not more than Graceling and it brought all the three stories and the kingdoms together beautifully. I want more. If you liked the Graceling books as much as I did, I highly recommend Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina too, and its cover is just as pretty. Win all round. I’ll be reviewing this for The Gollancz Geeks Blog ASAP.

Up Next:

I’m torn between the next Ruby Redfort book which I totally forgot I’d pre-ordered and a book I was recommended ages ago and really need to read and give back – The Lies of Locke Lamora.

This does sound good…’Gentleman Bastard #1’…haha interesting…and no, it’s obviously not YA but I do like to branch out now and again.

As for Ruby Redfort, I probably never would have picked up the first book, Look Into My Eyes if it hadn’t been released by Harper Collins with its spangly hypnotic silver cover. The previous cover looked a bit too young for me, and the same goes for Take Your Last Breath, the second in the series. Ruby is sassy and witty and fearless and makes a pretty amusing 13 year old secret agent, none of which I get from this cover:

But this one, on the other hand is much more appealing to my inner teenage spy.

  1. I am soooo excited to read Bitterblue, I keep hoarding it on my shelf though, waiting for who knows what to start it. Maybe I can give myself a treat after I finish my most recent book! 🙂 Have fun in all the beer gardens! Sounds like a ton of fun

    1. Thanks! It’s hard to resist the beer gardens when it’s been so cold for ages and now it is glorious outside. I need to find a spot where my friends can’t find me so I can read instead of being sociable..haha. Hopefully Bitterblue will be a good treat and worth the wait!

  2. Read ‘The Lies of Locke Lamora’ last year. Was ok but dragged on forever! Think I managed to swap it for something else already:)

  3. Yeah I thought you had read it! Apparently it’s similar to The Book With No Name? So I might like it more than you did…

    1. Who told you that? It’s nothing like The Book With No Name! (At least in my opinion) But you probably will like it more than I did 🙂

    1. btw anonymous is me. not sure why your blog all over sudden is treating me as a stranger!

  4. And I can’t believe we’re actually having this conversation sitting in the same flat!
