Lovely Vicious series by Sara Wolf

Thursday, February 25, 2016

Back in 2014, in my Top Ten Books I Read in 2014 post, there was this bit.




I still maintain that this series is my favorite contemporary series OF ALL TIME. I couldn't even review the last two books in the series because HOW DO I EVEN? I was only able to review Lovely Vicious because I was required by the tour I was a part of but I wasn't able to express how much I love it because HOW DO I? I have recommended and gifted this series to friends just so they'd read it and I have been successful. AND NOW IT HAS BEEN PICKED UP BY ENTANGLED TEEN AND THIS MEANS THAT MORE PEOPLE CAN READ IT AND I'LL HAVE IT IN PAPERBACK!

Can you feel my excitement?!?!?!?!~

Anyway, without further ado, go under the cut for the new covers of the series!

“Four hundred billion suns spiraling through space together. Our solar system just one grain on that galactic carousel. The carousel itself a speck in the cosmos. And here I am in this small clearing, on the surface of the earth, as transient and unnoticed to the universe as the dry blades of grass that are poking into my shirt. It's too much to comprehend up there, too enormous, and I'm so small when it's on top of me. It frightens me, like I'm being crushed.”

Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit

Monday, February 1, 2016



Title: Anna and the Swallow Man
Author: Gavriel Savit
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Date of Publication: January 26, 2016
Source: copy from Penguin Random House International


Kraków, 1939. A million marching soldiers and a thousand barking dogs. This is no place to grow up. Anna Łania is just seven years old when the Germans take her father, a linguistics professor, during their purge of intellectuals in Poland. She’s alone.

And then Anna meets the Swallow Man. He is a mystery, strange and tall, a skilled deceiver with more than a little magic up his sleeve. And when the soldiers in the streets look at him, they see what he wants them to see.

The Swallow Man is not Anna’s father—she knows that very well—but she also knows that, like her father, he’s in danger of being taken, and like her father, he has a gift for languages: Polish, Russian, German, Yiddish, even Bird. When he summons a bright, beautiful swallow down to his hand to stop her from crying, Anna is entranced. She follows him into the wilderness.

Over the course of their travels together, Anna and the Swallow Man will dodge bombs, tame soldiers, and even, despite their better judgment, make a friend. But in a world gone mad, everything can prove dangerous. Even the Swallow Man.
