April 17, 2014 - 10:41amIn our minds, the only thing that's better than an excerpt is a super advanced excerpt of a book we're dying to read! So today we're excited to share with you a lengthy snippet from Keri Arthur's upcoming series starter, Fireborn, which won't be hitting stores until July. Fireborn is the story of Emberley, a phoenix who can take human form — and foresee death. In this action-packed excerpt Emberley is once again trying to cheat death, but there are always consquences.

April 16, 2014 - 11:05amOne of the biggest book-related issues I’m facing right now is how to organize my TBR pile. As a reviewer and book blogger, I’m often working ahead, reading books three to four months before they release, and rarely have a chance to look back. But that doesn’t mean there aren't previously published books I want to read! Here’s an example: Right now, I have a very juicy July book I want to read ASAP, but am also paused on J.R. Ward’s Dark Lover, which I recently bought during that epic ebook sale, and am reading purely for pleasure. Not to mention I have to finish Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which was given to me as part of RT’s 2014 Reading Challenge.

April 16, 2014 - 10:09amAh, classic literary fiction. It can be so wonderful, but at times dense, leaving us wishing for a guide to lead us through the venerable prose. Enter: Italian artist and writer Francesco D'Isa, who reviews the classics in a candid, tongue-in-cheek (and very short) way. We're happy to bring his column, "Very Short Reviews of Difficult Books," to English language readers! Check back here every Wednesday for three new reviews from Francesco.***The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov The devil does not pursue evil: his wonders neither change nor create anything and at most they madden the idiots, because the world is a devil’s joke and it is useless to turn against him (especially when he takes the form of a giant, well-polished cat).
