The World of Lore: Monstrous Creatures by Aaron Mahnke Event at Powell’s Books

I haven’t heard any of Aaron’s podcast but looking at the crowd of people that showed up to see him, it must be good.

Peter V Brett highly recommended checking out Aaron’s work and attending his upcoming event. I already had plans to take my kiddo to a corn maze on the day of his event so I showed up late and I was only able to listen to Q&A. There was a lot of good questions and by the end I definitely was sold on reading The World of Lore: Monstrous Creatures. If you haven’t heard of it you should check it out.

Stephanie Perkins, Laini Taylor, Jim Di Bartolo Event at Powell’s Books

Alright guys if you are into slasher books and/or movies? Then Stephanie Perkins is your girl😉 That woman reminds me of the witch and the delicious house made of candy from Hansel and Gretel. With her sweet smile, shy alluring personality, and her beautiful house with disturbing hidden surprises. She lures you into complacency and rips your world apart by writing a delightfully disturbing epic slasher book.

And let not forget forget about Laini Taylor and Jim Di Bartolo. These two are quite the duo. Though I have not had the chance to read Cake and Puppets, its in the next to read stack. The illustrations are beautiful which is not surprising considering who their maker is. Strange the Dreamer on the other hand I have read and it is delightful. It’s about a humble librarian that ends up going on an epic life changing adventure. That will leave him and the people of weep forever changed, for better or worse.  I highly recommend it. Like really!!! You have to read it!!! It’s sooooo goooood.

The Cover Redesign for A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir

I’m a little behind on voicing my opinion on the cover reveal/redesign for A Reaper at the Gates. I have mixed feelings on the cover’s makeover and don’t get me wrong, I really like the new look. They kind of have an Assassin’s Creed feel. Though, if I had to choose between the new and the old it would be the original design. In my opinion it just it fit the story better. I know Sabaa wanted the makeover to showcase an empowered brown girl, which is awesome. But now my set will be miss matched and if I want the whole series to match then I will have to repurchase book 1 & 2, plus the task of getting them signed. I love Sabaa’s but at some point how many copies do I need.  Ok, I’m done with my first world problems rant……

PS I really do like the cover redesign, I just think I like the original better:) Also, here is the link to the article announcing this redesign.
