Hello, hello!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. We are officially in the final countdown to the release of Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins and I, for one, could not be more excited. These books are the cutest of the cute and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for Isla.

‘But wait,’ you may be saying, ‘I haven’t read these Anna/Lola books. They sound quite delightful but I have yet to read them.’ Never fear dear reader! Andi from Andi’s ABCs, Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner , Judith from Paper Riot, Lindsey from A Bookish Sinister Kid and I have put together a readalong (or rereadalong for those of you who have read them and want to brush up so you can be at maximum preparedness levels for Isla) in anticipation of this glorious release.



(I’ve heard a rumor that Anna and the French Kiss is $6 for kindle right now)

‘A readalong,’ you may also be saying, ‘well that sounds like a jolly good time!’ (I don’t know why you would say it like that but work with me here) ‘What does this readalong entail?’ Excellent question!

(it’s a more accurate mental picture if you assume I am also horribly off key)

HAPPY BOOKBIIIIRTHDAY TO KISSOFDECPTION
HAPPY BOOKBIIIIRTHDAAAAAAY TO KISSOFDECEPTIOOOON
HAPPYYYY BOOKBIIIIRTHDAAAAAY TOOOO KIIIISSOFDECEEEEEPTIOOOOON
HAAAAAAPPY BOOOOOKBIIIIIRTHDAAAAAY TOOOOOO YOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUU!

 

Right, you can come out now, the performance bit’s over. As you may have guessed, it is the long-awaited release day of Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson, the first book in a fantastic new fantasy trilogy.

We are huge fans of this book and are quite pleased to welcome Mary here today to talk about writing a sneaky twist (Meg’s working title: How To Trick Your Readers In The Sneakiest Of The Sneaky Fashions).


(Working title comes with gif because obviously)

So come along gentle reader and learn about how Mary E. Pearson will pull the rug out from under you and cause you to question everything you think about how you perceive characters and what are you doing making assumptions anyway?

Phoebe North

“You know, I love going to outer space,” says Kat as she steps out of our space shuttle.

I look over at her frowning. “For what?” The last time we were in space it ended with me crashing Veronica Rossi’s ship. Not my finest moment, I assure you.

“Is that a trick question?” asks Meg. She’s got this goofy grin on her face and I can tell she’ll behave just as a child would in a candy shop for most of this trip.

We’ve just landed on Mars to meet up with the awesome Phoebe North, author of Starglass and Starbreak, for an interview. She’s asked us to meet her here because she’s going to take us for a tour of the galaxy in her Spark V. I want to tell you that nothing could possibly go wrong on this trip, but, well, famous last words and all that shiz.

Larbalestier, Justine 2013

Blog Tour: Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier

We’re super excited to have Larbalestier on our blog today, and not at all because she threatened us with a razor and said she was going to cut us. (Please help us). You may have seen Larbalestier’s awesome activism on Twitter, or read one of her previous books like Liar or Team Human. Today we’ll be talking about her new book, Razorhurst. Set in 1930′s Sydney Australia amongst the bloody gang wars. With limited guns available, gang members turn their prowess for violence towards the razor blades. It’s a bloody, beautiful novel.

Q: The setting of the novel is 1930′s Sydney Australia, in the grip of mob warfare. This beautiful novel has such a unique viewpoint. How much of it is historically accurate? To what degree are the characters like Gloriana Nelson and Davidson, and the setting of Razorhurst real?

A: Thank you. So pleased you like it.

Ruin and Rising

We here at Cuddlebuggery have been huge, huge fans of Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy. From the moment we reach the first plot twist in Shadow and Bone, we knew this was going to be one hell of a series. With each book, Leigh has raised the stakes and we’re just waiting for Ruin and Rising to blow our socks right off. As fans, we’ve always been excited to see the success of the series and have always been honored to have Leigh stop by. I mean, we’ve had some great times together. Like that time Leigh saved us from ninjas with her mind bullets. Or the time were Kat drew minion versions of Leigh’s characters. Or the time when Kat and I wrote that totally awkward fan fiction and had Leigh critique it. Really, really great times, guys.

But then we realized we’ve been spoiling Leigh. Like, super hard and stuff!
