Book Boos: November

5. THE PHARO'S GATE by Nick Bantock. This is a tough one because when I bought this, I didn't realize it was part of a long series. The description says you can read it on its own and I agree, but I enjoyed it more for the creative use of letters than for the story. 

4. THE WRETCHED OF MUIRWOOD by Jeff Wheeler. (Audio). I really liked this story, about Lia, a kitchen slave who agrees to hide and then help a squire who is hiding from the sheriff. There's way more to it as magic plays a big part and I really liked that part of the plot. The only reason I ranked this lower is that Lia is 14 in the story so I immediately knew there would be no romance. (I love romance!) 

3. RAKE MOST LIKELY TO SIN by Bronwyn Scott. Except for using ridiculous terms like member and phallus, this book was so enjoyable. The chemistry between the two main characters was great and I was totally rooting for them to make it in the end. 

2. BLOOD FOR BLOOD by Ryan Graudin. (ARC). I LOVE this series from Ryan Graudin. It's so creative in its premise and I just adore the characters who are all so layered. I highly highly recommend it!

1. CROOKED KINGDOM by Leigh Bardugo. (Audio/Print). Leigh Bardugo is a master of words and plot. SIX OF CROWS was amazing, but I think I liked CROOKED KINGDOM more! We got to see deeper into some of the characters and I liked the plot a lot in this one. And check out that cover! Amazing!!!!

Book Boos: October

5. THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS by Marieke Nijkamp. (Audio).  This plot in this book is difficult to read, but from a writing standpoint, I really like how the author told it. It was told in time increments that showed how quickly things can happen, but it also told the story in flashback to show how feelings can marinate and little moments can be so important to someone. There was just one plot thing I didn't like, but it's a bit of a spoiler so let me know in the comments if you want to know!

4. REPLICA by Lauren Oliver. (ARC). I'm a big fan of Lauren Oliver and while I loved the premise of this book, it fell a little flat for me. Again, from a writing standpoint, I loved how it was told and I found the characters memorable, but I was left wanting more. I'm curious was book two will hold. 

3. THE CONSPIRACY OF US by Maggie Hall. (Audio).  Super fun book about a girl who finds out she might be a part of a powerful international family and then ends up on the run as she tries to figure things out. I liked Avery and loved the two main male characters...probably my only complaint was that sometimes the book felt super realistic that then, when something crazy would happen, I'd have to remind myself that it was okay for it to be a little unbelievable. 

2. COCAINE BLUES by Kerry Greenwood. (Audio). Phrynne Fisher is SO MUCH FUN! I kind of can't even remember what the mystery is that she solves in the book because I remember the moments of her being awesome. 

1. A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING by Jessica Cluess. (ARC) Loved this one that was filled with magic, lust, and danger. Henriette has hidden her powers for years out of fear, so when she is taken to London as the next prophesied sorcerer, she is understandably a bit of a fish out of water. Also...that cover! Beautiful! I definitely recommend this one!

Book Boos: September

6. THE STRANGE AND BEAUTIFUL SORROWS OF AVA LAVENDER by Leslye Walton. (Audio). I listened to this while working an overnight at work and, while it was a great story and I liked it, I think maybe it wasn't what I wanted at the time. I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of magical realism...probably because I like fantasy so I wanted her wings to be a bigger actual part of the story. I realize that's not the point! :) 

5. THREE DARK CROWNS by Kendare Blake. (ARC). First of all, I am OBSESSED with this cover. It is one of the best covers I have EVER seen. I was really into this story, but some of it just happened so quickly that the enormity of things was left vague for me. I have a feeling it's just writing style and I had just read a very verbose story so it probably seemed more disjointed than it really is...especially since people are raving about it. I still really enjoyed the story and looked forward to the sequel! (Thanks to HarperTeen via Edelweiss for the Advanced Reader e-copy of this book.)

4. KISS OF DECEPTION by Mary E. Pearson. (Audio). Epic story of a princess who fleas on her wedding day and ends up in a village with the jilted prince and an assassin sent to kill her. I think I want to re*read* this one to make sure I caught everything because it was delightful. 

3. A TORCH AGAINST THE NIGHT by Sabaa Tahir. I LOVED AN EMBER IN THE ASHES and was soooooo excited for this book. I really enjoyed it, but I got so angry when [SPOILER ALERT?] Elias and Laia were separated in the story. How are they going to makeout when they're not together??? I understood quickly why they were separated and I can't wait for book 3 now, but I wanted more interaction. 

2. THE HEIR by Kiera Cass. (Audio). Ahhhh, this series is so satisfying and I really recommend the audio of them. Perfect for stressful drives. I found the story of Maxim and America's daughter more believable and it was a great added layer of her being kind of a b;)

1. EMPIRE OF STORMS by Sarah J. Maas. (Audio/Book). OMFG THIS BOOK IS INCREDIBLE! I had the incredible pleasure of attending Sarah's book release party at the BN in Bensalem, PA where I nervously told her she's inspired me and also spit out that I was so thankful she recommended CAPTIVE PRINCE...What I didn't tell her is that I'm obsessed with her books and I'm eternally grateful that she publishes two a year because they're my crack. So yeah, I listened to this book on my drive to PA, then my drive to the Eastern Shore, and then, on my drive to and from North Carolina where I visited a friend and went to another Maas book event (Victoria Schwab was there, too! YAY!). SO yeah...pretty epic week I had with this book. I can't even handle how amazed I am at the story and how so many little things mentioned in prior books have come back to play a part in the story now. And while I obviously love Rowan, I want to give a special shout out to Lorcan! <3 br="">

Book Boos: August

I traveled a lot in August and while that sometimes means more reading time, it didn't this time. Anyway, let's dig in! I'm way off track for getting to 101 by the end of the year, but it's still my unofficial goal.
5. STARS IN YOUR EYES by Lynn Kurland. I never should have read this after OUTLANDER. I expected another sexy story about a woman from present day who falls in love with a hot Scottish guy. Unfortunately, this book just didn't do it for me. I just didn't get what was going on most of the time and ended up skimming a lot of it. 

4. THE FORBIDDEN WISH by Jessica Khoury. (Audio) I have to admit...I'm not a huge Aladdin fan. I'm a fan of the Disney movie because I love the genie and the side characters, but I've never been too into the love story side. I enjoyed this book, but I wonder if only knowing the Disney movie hurt my enjoyment. I would still recommend it, though. It's gorgeously written.

3. CINDER by Marissa Meyer. (Audio) I'm way behind on this one. Everyone I know has already read it, but I just kept waiting. (I've owned it for years!) I'm glad I finally bit the bullet and got the audio because it was a great one! By the end, I was so into the story and now can't wait to continue on in the series. I love retellings and highly recommend this one. 

2. THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 by Ruth Ware. (ARC) I had the pleasure of reading IN A DARK DARK WOOD before it came out and raved about it before it became a bestseller. (Yes, I'm pointing that out!) I also got an advanced copy of THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 and was just as pleased! I love the suspense and the use of the unreliable narrator, but I most enjoyed the setting. Having everything happen on a small cruise ship that's out to sea is so genius. Very Agatha Christie! Ruth Ware has cemented her spot on my "Must Read" list! 

1. CARAVAL by Stephanie Garber. (ARC) So, I work at a bookstore and come across a lot of books, as do my coworkers, and a book that several of us are completely obsessed with is THE NIGHT CIRCUS. As I was reading CARAVAL, I kept coming into work raving about it and telling my coworkers how much it reminded me of THE NIGHT CIRCUS. The world-building is fantastic and completely blew me away., the plot kept me guessing and never got boring, and the characters are all multi-layered and made me cheer for them (or, sometimes not!). I am a sucker for a story about sisters and can't wait to recommend this book to everyone in January!

It's Gone

I was going to get back on track with my Radiohead bracket, but omg the site is no more and my bracket is lost! I am kind of sad about this because it was actually a lot of work setting that thing up!!!!

I guess now, if/when I redo it, I can put their latest album on it. *Silver lining*

By the Numbers Or, Why I'm So Tired

The past month has been pretty crazy:

  • I went to three tennis tournaments: Citi Open in Washington, DC, Rogers Cup in Toronto, and the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, Ohio. 
  • I spent seven full days sitting outside watching tennis. (Basically The Dream! But it was very very very hot.)
  • I worked 17 days.
  • I drove 8+ hours to upstate New York and back.
  • I rode 3.5+ hours from upstate New York to Toronto and back.
  • I drove 8+ hours to Cincinnati, Ohio and back.
  • I drove 2+ hours to and from work each of those 17 days. 
  • I went to Chincoteague for one of my "weekends".
  • I had writing group one Friday afternoon.
  • I entered #Pitchwars online, a writing contest. 
  • I read and/or listened to six books.
No wonder I'm tired:) But happy and fulfilled!

Book Boos: July

Oops, it's almost August you say? My bad! I've been very very busy, but here is what I read in July!

6. ZENITH Part One of The Adroma Saga by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings. This kind of has to be in 6th place since it's just part one in the book...and the authors just announced it's going to be a print book now and we have to wait awhile for it. Blah. I've never been a space opera fan (what does that even mean??), but I was intrigued by the world created in this book and by the characters and look forward to what else happens. 

5. HEIR OF FIRE by Sarah J. Maas. (Audio/Print) Pretty much just chose randomly for spots one through five because everything was so good. I really liked HEIR OF, really really liked it. Getting to learn more about who Celaena is and then being introduced to Rowan and getting to enjoy that relationship as they fight and grow closer was a treat. I don't want to say too much for fear of spoilers, but the focuses in this story are awesome. 

4. I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS by Iain Reid. My friend highly recommended this book and she was right, it's so good! I'm not the type of reader who tries to figure out the twists in a book, I like to be surprised, as the author intends. Without saying too much, Reid does a great job of misleading the reader;)

3. IVORY AND BONE by Julie Eshbaugh. (ARC) This book is so unique and unlike anything I've read in the past few years. I thoroughly enjoyed it and literally could not put it down- it was almost addicting! The story is told from one character to another and I loved trying to gauge when the stories would catch up with each other. So wonderful! Read this one! Also, buy this one because isn't that cover amazing!?

2. QUEEN OF SHADOWS by Sarah J. Maas. (Audio/Print) Obviously this book was amazing. I listened to this on my incredibly brutal drive to and from upstate New York, which was a great idea because it made the time pass a little more quickly! Again, can't say too much without giving anything away, but I will say I'm glad EMPIRE OF STORMS has a "mature content" warning..although, warning is the wrong word. It should come with a mature content high five! 

1. OUTLANDER by Diana Gabaldon. (Audio/Print) I know, I know, I should have read this years ago, but I'm kind of glad I never did because it meant I got to picture Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser and that was a beautiful, beautiful thing! This book is epic and amazing, but I already knew that going in. I love the show, I love Scotland, and I love sexy historical fiction. Oh, and I love James Fraser. *swoon*

#PitchWars #PimpMyBio Hi, I'm Scarlet!

I'm biting the bullet and entering Pitch Wars this year! I'm nervous, but there are only positives to entering, right?

So, a little about me...

I pay the bills by working in a large, chain bookstore (you know the one) where I'm happiest when I'm organizing the Teen section or talking about the latest book I've read (and am most likely obsessing over). I post all of my staff recommendations on Instagram!

My hobbies, though, are what really enrich my life and I have many of them: I play the clarinet and bassoon in a community band, I have a Gilmore Girls podcast, I love photography, I watch a million TV shows and films and, of course, I read and write a lot! Oh, and I have a bit of an obsession with tennis. Er...I guess I need to be honest here: I am completely and irrevocably in love with tennis. If only watching tennis counted as working out!

Despite always being a voracious reader, I never thought I could write something of my own. I am not that person who, as a child, wrote my own stories and dabbled in fan fiction because I loved it. In fact, I kind of hated writing. I wasn't very good at it and I never gained much confidence for it while in school. I was proud of myself for doing well enough on my AP Lit exam so I would only have to take one english class in college. (I know!)

While I was always much better at math and science (I double majored in Biology and Music at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA), I have always been extremely creative. I have the type of brain that exists outside the box and I think that is why I love books so much. I have such an appreciation for the minds that think up the stories I love and in the past few years I finally realized that I could do it, too!

I wrote my first manuscript (a contemporary YA romance about a vague breakup), but set it aside because I figured it was my "terrible first book":) What I wrote next, and what I'll be querying is a YA adventure that was inspired by my own love of music when I imagined a world where it was illegal. THE MOVEMENT is told in dual POV and my male MC is based on Dave Grohl. (They say to write what you know and I have definitely done that!)

Thanks so much to Brenda Drake and all of the mentors out there! I'm excited! (and nervous!)

Escaping Into Fantasy

I was never really into fantasy books.

Sure, I'd love for a sparkly vampire to crawl through my window and sweep me off my feet, but that's like saying you like spicy food when really you just like pepper. Vampires are practically mainstream now.

But in the past couple of years, I've found myself drawn to the fantasy aisles of the bookstore more. My love for contemporary novels has cooled just a bit and I'm now craving things a bit less real. A bit less like real life.

I think I started reading more YA years ago because I related more to the less jaded, unmarried, childless characters than those in so many adult fiction books. I didn't want to read about women who were getting divorced or dealing with preschool applications. Or school. Or work...or any of the mundane things I actually do deal with in my life. And I think that's why, lately, I've been reading way more fantasy than contemporary. I need a better escape.

Last night, I made the fairly long 4.5 hour drive home from the beach and listened to HEIR OF FIRE by Sarah J. Maas the entire way. It's the third in the THRONE OF GLASS series and it's incredibly epic and about [fill in fantasy word I can't use because it's a spoiler]. I was lost in that world the entire drive, enjoying the wonderful storytelling as I made my way home. And then, once home and inside, I looked at twitter and saw that something terrible was going on in the world: more people were being shot and killed.

I kind of wanted to get back in the car and drive some more. Instead, I got off Twitter and read more fantasy before going to sleep. Even if I'm reading for escapism, it doesn't mean my heart doesn't hurt for so many people at the same time.

A war is on the horizon in the book I'm reading. One that involves magic and fae and swords and ancient stones and good vs evil and it's intense! But it's the escape I want and need right now. It's a story that can translate thematically to the real world, but it's different enough that I can let myself get lost in the fantasy.

I like that for 300+ pages of a book I can think about things that aren't real: fae wars, ancient curses, immortal kings, shapeshifters, magic, and yes, even vampires sometimes.

I used to only want to read about characters who were real, people who could exist in our world...but now, I'm gravitating toward worlds that aren't too like ours because I can read about our problems all I want just by checking out Twitter or turning on the news, and sometimes, I need to get away from it. Away from our world. So, thank you, writers, for sharing your imagination and creating these amazing worlds for me to escape to. Thank you for writing fantasy.

Book Boos: June

It felt like I read a lot in June, but then I checked Goodreads and it was only five!? Ugh, that's ridiculous. Having to work ruins things!

5. A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn. (Audio) This was a fun book and I really like the main character, Veronica Speedwell, a lepidopterist who tries to figure out who is after her. I loved the Victorian England setting and the feisty nature of the main character. 

4. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. (Audio) Honestly, this book was awesome and the fact that it's in 4th "place" just shows how amazing June's books were. I feel like I say that every month, but it's true! The world-building is awesome in this book, which is why I picked it up in the first place- that cover! I loved how different the entire story felt and read with fervor, trying to learn everything I could about this world Bardugo created. I can't wait to get to book two!

3. Prince's Gambit by C.S. Pacat. The only reason this hit at three is because I was impatient as a reader and wanted to get to what I hoped was at the end. Publishers Weekly describes it as an "erotic political romantic fantasy novel" which is a lot of words to describe a book, but they're all true. Everything in Pacat's books are multi-layered. It's incredible. 

2. Crown of Midnight. (Audio) I waited a long time to move along in this series,mostly because I wanted to save it. We all know about my ACOTAR series obsession and I kept thinking I could save this series for the long wait until May 2017, but Empire of Storms comes out this September and I don't want to be left behind so here we are...and I'm glad I did it because the Throne of Glass series is so much fun! I had heard some people didn't like book 2, which surprised me because I really liked it. We still get badass Celaena who is somehow even more badass as well as Chaol and Dorian who now hold very different spots in her life. 

1. Uprooted by Naomi Novik. Once I started this, I was so angry with 2015 me for not cracking this wonderful book open when I bought it! It is so so so wonderful and beautiful and filled with some of the most amazing imagery! I loved the main characters, who are both flawed, yet grow, and I really really loved the magic in the book and how Novik described it. It's loosely based on Beauty and the Beast and my boss at the bookstore has likened it to Night Circus, which I totally agree with. I could read all day about the magic in this book. And, side note, this would make an AWESOME movie!

A Court of Music (An ACOTAR Series Playlist)

The connection between writing/reading and music is something very special- two of my favorite things in the world that work together so well. I love that so many writers use music to help their writing and I love when a reader finds a piece of music that reminds them of a book.

Sarah J. Maas is a writer who talks a lot about the music she uses when writing. She makes her Spotify playlists public and, in her newsletter, she shares many of the specific pieces of music that go with certain scenes. I may have cried a little when she revealed that it was Beethoven's 7th she imagined being played for Feyre while Under the Mountain. I cry every time I hear that 2nd movement..including when I played it in orchestra. (Awkward. Like, I legit was tearing up while on stage.)

So, it was inevitable that I would create a playlist for A COURT OF MIST AND FURY, my new favorite book. Sooo many songs were reminding me of the book because Sarah is so good at writing words that convey a ton of emotion- just like good music!

So, check out what I came up with in my Spotify playlist below. I started out just picking songs that reminded me of ACOMAF, but I wanted to encompass the entire story from Feyre first entering Prythian to Under the Mountain, to her depression and coping, and of course, to what happens after that. There are some spoilers below, so be warned. And please- let me know what songs you would include!
