New Books by Holly Black

Laura : 7 May, 2010 7:27 pm : Books

“Debauchery, despair, deceit, and grisly death–what more could you ask from a fairy tale?”
Kirkus Reviews

If you want some creeptastic goodness in  your life,  pick up one of Holly Black’s books.

Poison Eaters and Other Stories is a collection of short stories.

White Cat is the first book in a new series.

A description of White Cat: Cassel comes from a family of curse workers — people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their  hands. And since curse work is illegal, they’re all mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn’t got the magic touch, so he’s an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail — he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.

Eclipse Sneak Peek!

Laura : 7 May, 2010 12:43 pm : Books, Movie

A few lucky Twi-hards got a chance to view the Eclipse movie, thanks to Oprah. Viewers were sworn to secrecy over the details of the film, but fans of the series *know* all the juicy details anyway…

Read the LA Times preview review here.

We’re sure you’ve seen the movie trailer at least 10 times by now, but who couldn’t use another glimpse at this classic human/vampire/”werewolf” love triangle? Enjoy

Eclipse

Read or re-read the books before you see the movie.

Check out the movie soundtracks & the first two movies while you’re at it!
