We have been crazy MIA, right? Not that we think you’re in constant-refresh mode (it’s not a One Direction fanpage after all, AMIRITE, PQ?) but we don’t mean to neglect this site. Cookie?
But as we all know, life is crazy. And with kids and work and writing we find ourselves sitting down to post and then think WAIT, DID I SERIOUSLY JUST PROMISE MY CHILD I’D MAKE 322 CUPCAKES BY TOMORROW?? *drinks*
BUT HEY, we got our #engagementphotos:
And since we have you here, it’s time for the Goodreads Choice Awards! Have you voted? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Love an author? Love a book? Then vote! It’s an amazing way to be heard and support the stories and storytellers we all adore. So please, VOTE! (Love something that’s not listed on the official ballot? You can write it in! BOOM. DONE.)
We promise some epic posts soon. Also, we have a whole bunch of interviews we need to get moving, have an adorable Swoony Rec from Lo’s Smister, and all kinds of
smutty swoony pics, so we’ll be doing more of those soon.
WE NEVER STOPPED LOVING YOU.Read More »
It’s time for our annual Comic Con wrap-up! aka why Lo and Christina are exhausted and totally scatterbrained this week.
First – and most importantly – we got to squeeze each other…Read More »
There’s one question we get waaaay more than any other: Why do you write together? Well of course there are the obvious benefits: two people to write, revise, research, blog, read, flail, post to tumblr, tweet etc etc. There’s the fact that writing is a stressful and lonely lonely business, and that going through it with someone else makes it not only easier, but fun. BUT it’s about way more than that. Lo and I aren’t just coauthors, we’re besties!Read More »
Today is all about our favorite swoony boys in fiction.
We all have a favorite (or two, or three…). You know the one, that boy that makes your heart beat faster, the one you catch yourself thinking about long after the book is closed… um you all do that, too, right?
He’s the fictional boy who’s stolen your heart, the one you compare ALL other male characters to, and when confronted with a love triangle you find yourself yelling NO NO NO FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT’S HOLY PICK HIM! PICK HIMMM!
Yeah, that one. So we set out to write a single post on our favorite male characters in fiction. And because reading is so much more fun when you can swoon with your friends, we asked a couple of them to give us their thoughts, too. The problem was, nobody could sum it up in a few lines.
So, rather than cut the swoon, we decided to make this a reoccurring post. Each week or so we’ll showcase a new swoony boy – some will be from old favorites (well hello, Colonel Brandon), and some from books we’ve yet to discover. WIN/WIN.
Aaand here we go…Read More »
We had so much fun reading the first kiss tweets! Some were swoony, some were totally awkward, and some were the best of both worlds. Thanks for sharing!
First, some swoon:
NOW, the randomly-selected winner of the signed copy of LIPS TOUCH by Laini Taylor is… Starbright143! This was her tweet:Read More »
Summary: Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages–not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.
When one of the strangers–beautiful, haunted Akiva–fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
Lo says: I just reread that summary and squealed out loud. I’m in my thirties, guys. This is…special.Read More »
Amazon says: Revolution, Jennifer Donnelly’s remarkable new novel, weaves together the lives of Andi Alpers, a depressed modern-day teenager, and Alexandrine Paradis, a brave young woman caught up in the French Revolution. While in Paris with her estranged father, a Nobel geneticist hired to match the DNA of a heart said to belong to the last dauphin of France, Andi discovers a diary hidden within a guitar case–and so begins the story of Alexandrine, who herself had close ties to the dauphin. Redemption and the will to change are powerful themes of the novel, and music is ever present–Andi and Alex have a passion for the guitar, and the playlist running through Revolution is a who’s who of classic and contemporary influences. Danger, intrigue, music, and impeccably researched history fill the pages of Revolution, as both young women learn that, “it is love, not death, that undoes us.”–Seira WilsonRead More »
