    Description…

    Elias and Laia are running for their lives. After the events of the Fourth Trial, Martial soldiers hunt the two fugitives as they flee the city of Serra and undertake a perilous journey through the heart of the Empire.

    Laia is determined to break into Kauf—the Empire’s most secure and dangerous prison—to save her brother, who is the key to the Scholars’ survival. And Elias is determined to help Laia succeed, even if it means giving up his last chance at freedom.

    But dark forces, human and otherworldly, work against Laia and Elias. The pair must fight every step of the way to outsmart their enemies: the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus, the merciless Commandant, the sadistic Warden of Kauf, and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene—Elias’s former friend and the Empire’s newest Blood Shrike.

    Bound to Marcus’s will, Helene faces a torturous mission of her own—one that might destroy her: find the traitor Elias Veturius and the Scholar slave who helped him escape…and kill them both.

    Best Book Boyfriends of 2015

    I’ve had such an eclectic reading year that I don’t have nearly as many book boyfriends as I’ve had in the past. Many of the books I’ve read and loved didn’t even have romance as part of the storyline. And I also know that due to the number of books I have read and loved this year I am forgetting a few of them – so sorry my lovely fic boys! But I did not prep this post well in advance, as I’d hoped to, and so I am certain I’m forgetting some of my favorites.

    I’m also losing a few due to the fact that they have to be from books read and released this year.

    Anyway… here they are.

    #1 Death

    BEST BOOKS I’VE READ IN 2015

    I’ve read so many seriously amazing books this year, that picking just ten was a dreadfully impossible task. I’m just glad I read THE STARS NEVER RISE by Rachel Vincent in 2014 or it would have made narrowing down my list that much more horrendous. It also didn’t help that I read more books this year than last, that I’ve been in an eclectic reading mood, and that there were just so many incredible books written.

    #1 MENAGERIE by Rachel Vincent – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because it’s unique, it’s hard-hitting, the writing is beautiful, the story is phenomenal, the series potential has me desperate for the next installment.

    #2 DEAD OF WINTER by Kresley Cole – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because this series is an all-time favorite, because the ending is abso-freaking-lutely killer, because it’s dark and gorgeous and the waiting is exquisite torture.

    #3 SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because the story is epic, the world-building incredible, the writing gorgeous, the detail impeccable.

    #4 TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU by Claudia Gray – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because the writing is stunning, the world expansive and fascinating, the series riveting.

    #5 BRUTAL YOUTH by Anthony Breznican – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because it’s dark and gritty and edgy and shocking and disturbing, the writing brilliant, the story unforgettable.

    #6 SCHISM by Jenna Black – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because it’s complex and interesting and fascinating. The world is chilling and still amazing. The characters sympathetic and scary. The story compelling.

    #7 AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because it’s thrilling and epic and gripping and unputdownable. The dual POV makes it edge-of-your-seat exciting.

    #8 THE ROSE SOCIETY by Marie Lu – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because it’s so wicked and dark and wildly entertaining. It’s about villains. Nothing more needs to be said.

    #9 ROOK by Sharon Cameron – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because it’s action-packed, nerve-wracking, suspenseful. There are twists and turns. There’s romance, betrayal and heartbreak. What’s not to love?

    #10 SALT & STONE by Victoria Scott – AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE | GOODREADS

    Why? Because it’s awesome and amazing and adorable and nail-biting. The characters are ones you can’t help but love, love, love. Though the possibility that there might not be a next book in the series is heartbreaking.


    Honorable Mentions

    I really wanted to limit honorable mentions to just five, but I couldn’t do it. Limiting it to 15 was hard enough as it was.

    So those are my favorite reads for 2015. What are yours?

    Calling all AN EMBER IN THE ASHES FANS: Name the Fandom + Giveaway

    Name-the-Fandom

    In case you haven’t heard… Because of its success, AN EMBER IN THE ASHES is getting a sequel – yes, that’s right, there will be another story about Laia and Elias. The awesome folks at Penguin will be publishing the sequel, due out in April of next year according to Goodreads. And I am OVER THE MOOON ecstatic about this. You probably have NO idea how excited I am. Because…

    AN EMBER IN THE ASHES is one of those books that left me feeling ill-equipped to voice just how much I loved it. It’s a story that I’ve majorly fangirled over. And if I were to reveal just how much I loved it, my post would be filled with all sorts of gushy ramblings vs. coherent thoughts.

    Let’s just say that I am totally stoked that the story has not yet reached its end and let’s not talk about the fact that I may have done a really awkward and embarrassing version of a happy dance when I heard. Anyway…

    So, of course I jumped at the chance to help spread the news that the publisher is looking for names for the AN EMBER IN THE ASHES fandom.

    The deets…

    Leave a comment with YOUR name suggestions for the AN EMBER IN THE ASHES fandom. Penguin Teen will be putting together a poll with the most popular suggestions so that everyone can vote and have a say. Wouldn’t that be totally cool if the name you picked was up for a vote? An even cooler if it was chosen as the fandom name?!?

    And…

    As a thank you to those that help out with a suggestion, I will put your names into Random on Friday for the chance to win a Book of Your Choice up to $20 USD from either Amazon or The Book Depository.

    And yes… they did ask for me to share a few of my suggested fandom names. But I am AWFUL at titling things. No joke. I am really, really, bad at it. My ideas were too lame to put in this post. I just couldn’t reveal what I came up with and ever hope to show my face in the book blogosphere again.

    If you’re having just as much of a hard time as I was, but you want to come up with something, here are a few possible (and potentially SPOILER-Y) prompts from the book:

    • Laia is a SCHOLAR. Elias is a MASK.
    • The live in the MARTIAL EMPIRE.
    • The “good guys” are part of THE RESISTANCE.
    • The school is called BLACKCLIFF MILITARY ACADEMY.
    • Elias’ last name is VETURIUS.
    • Laia’s mother was the LIONESS. Elias’ mother is the COMMANDANT.
    • Elias is the EMBER IN THE ASHES.

    I hope those factoids help. They did not help me one iota. But that’s because (as I may have already mentioned) I am the worst at coming up with names and titles.

    And just in case you needed more inspiration, here’s some information about the book and author.

    Title: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES (An Ember in the Ashes #1)
    Author: Sabaa Tahir
    Release date: April 28, 2015
    Publisher: Razorbill
    Pages: 464
    Formats: Hardcover, audio, eBook

    Description…

    Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.

    LAIA is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.

    ELIAS is the academy’s finest soldier— and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.

    When Laia and Elias’s paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.

    AN EMBER IN THE ASHES Blog Tour: ‘Would You Rather?’ Guest Post + Giveaway

    AnEmberintheAshesBT

    I am so unbelievably excited to be a part of the AN EMBER IN THE ASHES Blog Tour and to have been able to ask the very, very amazing and talented Sabaa Tahir a few “Would You Rather?” questions for my stop today. I love her answers – especially the ones involving her characters and her book – and I am so happy I finally get to share them.

    I am also super excited that AN EMBER IN THE ASHES releases in less than a week – yes, it’s finally, finally, finally, almost here. And I can’t wait until everyone reads it and falls as madly in love with it as I did. It is EPIC. And AWESOME. It’s a story you don’t want ever to end. It’s a world you’ll never want to leave, even if it is dangerous for just about everyone who is a part of it. And Laia and Elias are two characters you’ll love getting to know.

    If you haven’t yet pre-ordered your copy so that it lands in your mailbox as close to release date as possible, there’s still time! There are a few links below for places you can pre-order your copy online. And if you want to see where else you can purchase a copy, be sure to visit the AN EMBER IN THE ASHES website – which also has a ton of information about the book and its author.

    As you may have already guessed, I love this book. It is one of my all-time favorite high fantasy novels. I couldn’t devour it fast enough. And with every switch between Laia and Elais’s POV I was both thrilled to be back with the character I’d been missing for the one chapter and eager to get back to the character I just left.

    Yeah… it’s just that amazing and brilliant and riveting and stunning… and so, so, so very epic. The pre-release buzz for this book is well-deserved and doesn’t even begin to do this story justice.

    So while I can’t make release day come any faster, I can offer up a copy of the book for giveaway so that one reader will have a copy of AN EMBER IN THE ASHES headed their way after its release next week.

    This tour runs for four weeks and has some awesome posts – posts I can’t wait to check out – scheduled. So if you’d like to visit all the stops, scroll down to the bottom of the post for the schedule which will be updated daily with direct links to each stop. This is an epic tour for an epic book and you won’t want to miss a single one!

    The Guest Post

    ‘Would You Rather?’ with Sabaa Tahir

    Would you rather write a series or a standalone?

    • A series. More story that way.

    Would you rather write on a Mac, PC or by hand?

    • A Mac. I can’t live without mine. *clutches Mac*

    Would you rather write during the day or at night?

    • At night.

    Would you rather write in first-, second- or third-person narrative?

    • First person.

    Would you rather write for a female or male POV?

    • I love both. If forced to pick, probably male. More challenging for me.

    Would you rather read a hardcover, paperback, audio or eBook?

    • Hardcover, always.

    Would you rather read fiction or non-fiction?

    • Fiction.

    Would you rather be under the rule of the Martial Empire or have a role in the Martial Empire?

    • I’d rather have a role in the Empire, which I could then use to, you know, sow revolution.

    Would you rather live in Laia and Elias’s world – the world that you created – or in the world you live in – the real world?

    • I like the real world.

    Would you rather be Laia, Elias, Helene or The Commandant?

    • I’d rather be Elias.

    Would you rather meet Laia, Elias, Helene or The Commandant?

    • I’d love to meet Laia.

    Would you rather leave readers on the edge of a cliff or give them a story that is all wrapped up?

    • I like stories where the character arcs are wrapped up, but there’s still a hook for more story.

    Would you rather give readers the unexpected or give them what they expect?

    • The unexpected.

    Would you rather give readers a heroine who is fierce or one who becomes so as the story progresses?

    • Someone who becomes so as the story progresses.

    Would you rather give readers a love story that is immediate and intense or one with a slow burn that eventually becomes an inferno?

    • I think both have their charms, but if forced to pick, slow burn.
