My picks this week are:
A Little Night Magic by Lucy March
Deliciously witty and delightfully sexy, A LITTLE NIGHT MAGIC is the story of Olivia Kiskey, a small town waffle house waitress who discovers she has magical powers which put her on the frontlines of a mystical war, forcing her to navigate her way between good and evil, day magic and night magic, love and waffles. But the waffles are really, really, really good.First, I have to admit that I adore the cover and title for this one. Making things even better, the premise of this one sounds awesome and lots of fun. I mean, more to a small town that meets the eye? Count me in for sure! Seriously cannot wait to read this one!
Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, NY, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias the cook for the last four years; he’s never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends - Peach, Millie, and Stacy - and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on changing her life, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends... but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her small town life than she ever dreamed. As her latent magical powers come to the surface, Olivia discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence... including Millie, who has been a shining example of sweetness for Liv since they were kids. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, and learns that the important things in life - friendship, love, magic and waffles - can get a girl through almost anything the Universe can throw at her.
A Little Night Magic comes out January 31, 2012!
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
Senior year is over, and Lucy has the perfect way to celebrate: tonight, she's going to find Shadow, the mysterious graffiti artist whose work appears all over the city. He's out there somewhere—spraying color, spraying birds and blue sky on the night—and Lucy knows a guy who paints like Shadow is someone she could fall for. Really fall for. Instead, Lucy's stuck at a party with Ed, the guy she's managed to avoid since the most awkward date of her life. But when Ed tells her he knows where to find Shadow, they're suddenly on an all-night search around the city. And what Lucy can't see is the one thing that's right before her eyes.This one also sounds incredible, and since I've heard nothing but fabulous things about Cath Crowley and her books, I'm sure it will be exactly that and more!
Graffiti Moon will be released February 14, 2012!
