Quote of the Week (5)

"Books are the most quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." 

-- Charles W. Eliot

The cover of Becca Fitzpatrick's Crescendo has been revealed!

Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

I'm so excited for this book to come out so I can see what happens next in Nora's story and the cover reveal has only amped up my excitement!  

In other news Rachel Hawkins updated her blog with a post which includes some FAQs regarding Hex Hall and it's future sequels.  Careful of spoilers if you haven't read Hex Hall, but if you have she may answer some questions that have been on the brain, click here to see her post.

I managed to finish not one but two of the books I've been reading this weekend so be sure to check back to see my reviews later this week for Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater and The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima.
