Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 10114 comments Mod
wow thanks Emma!


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
Thanks for all the lists Emma!

I'm looking out for:
The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi (winner of this year's Nebula Award for best novel)
The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ by Philip Pullman (he wrote the His Dark Materials series)
Shades of Grey: The Road to High Saffron by Jasper Fforde

These have all been released internationally, but unfortunately I have no idea if and when they'll make it to SA.


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
I saw The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ by Philip Pullman at EB yesterday, so it looks like that one's already available :)

Looks like a very quick read.


Niecole | 2363 comments Mod
Emma your so cool!
Lu, cant wait for the new Vampire Academy book!


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
Where did you get your lists from Emma? Is there a specific site you use, or do you just keep track of the authors/series you're most interested in?


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
Something for the Twilight/Meyer fans, to be released 1 June:

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella by Stephanie Meyer

A novella about a vampire that featured in Eclipse. Read more here: http://www.penguinbooks.co.za/book/97...


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 10114 comments Mod
sweeeet!


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
I think that Meyer book is in stores now. I've seen posters.

Emma (emmauk007) | 1068 comments I am wondering whether people will love this book just because it follows after Twilight and Stephanie Meyer is the author. I think everything she writes now is going to come under scrutiny and people will expect her books to be a huge success. Any lets be honest anything Twilight related is going to make her alot of money. Its not a book that I want to read myself as I think the Twilight saga as been done and dusted. Best to leave it there and move on.

PS:If anyone wants the book just pm me.


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
Hmm, people might hate it, but either way, millions will still BUY it. I don't the series should ever havebeen published, but as it is it can still be milked. Perhaps this book is a way of maintaining interest while Meyer works on Midnight Sun? If she's still planning on publishing it.


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
For murder and mystery fans, PJ Tracy has a new book out: Play to Kill by P.J tracy.

The book on Penguin's website: http://www.penguinbooks.co.za/book/97...


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
David Mitchell, the author of Cloud Atlas, has just released a new book The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet.


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
Just found a cool website: www.authoralerts.com

Sign up, and you can receive email alerts or RSS feeds about new releases for your favourite authors or publishers. You can also log on to the site and check the list of new releases any time.

You're limited to ten alerts at first, but if you tell others about it, on Facebook, twitter, real life, etc. you can email them about it and they'll increase your number of alerts to 100!

They will also give you alerts of re-releases (the paperback, new editions), but you can turn those off if you like.


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 10114 comments Mod
Thanks for sharing! :D


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
If you like crime thrillers, or authors like Tess Gerritsen and Faye Kellerman there's a new book out you might enjoy:
Think of a Number by John Verdon

The publisher, Random House, has a special offer on the ebook: http://www.randomhouse.com/email/spec...


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 10114 comments Mod
These two look quite promising:

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1) by Kiersten White Dracula in Love by Karen Essex

But we have to wait till August :(


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod

For the Parasol Protectorate fans, here's the cover art for the 4th novel, Heartless, in case you want to check it out or blog about it:

Claudia (claudiavstoomanybooks) | 1741 comments Mod
I don't like the new cover. The lighter colour looks bleh. It just doesn't fit with the rest.


message 35: by Lauren (last edited Feb 02, 2011 12:46AM) (new)

Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
I don't like it much either. The first one looked pretty cool, and then it got progressively worse.


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 10114 comments Mod
That is just weird


Niecole | 2363 comments Mod
The cover of the first book looks creepy in a cool way, I love the way the women is standing with the parasol in her hand... the new one looks almost fake in a way? If I could describe it that way?


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 10114 comments Mod
Yea it does look "fake"


Niecole | 2363 comments Mod
Exactly, it looks like they didnt have a very big budget for the design of the cover... looks cheap and fake


Lauren Smith | 6568 comments Mod
Yeah, the model isn't integrated into the rest of the image, so it looks very cut and paste.
She's also girlier than the others, which makes the cover feel a bit sillier too.


Niecole | 2363 comments Mod
I get that too! The cut and paste thing... it just doesnt fit into the image of the book

Heather Tribe (Tribefox) After 6 long years of waiting...the next book by George RR Martin (Dance of Dragons) is due to come out in June!!! I am so excited!

I have just recently started reading A game of thrones heather and I am really loving it. Its one of those books that I have really wanted to read for a long time, but never gotten around to. I have read some pretty uninteresting fantasy and sci books of late and that did put me off reading this genre somewhat, but I am very happy that I picked up this book.

I am so happy to hear that Emma. The books are huge, but you read them practically
Overnight. And each one gets better than the one before it!
We will have to have a game of thrones discussion once you are finished!
