uncoverallure Read #IAmPrincessX by #CheriePriest in one sitting! What an incredible book! I loved the webcomic aspect and May's determination to stay loyal to her friend even when everyone else had given up. How soon is too soon to read it again?

PS: when I got my copy, the dust cover was on it backwards, so the text was upside-down. I totally thought it was part of the unique aesthetic, like the pictures. Then I saw the acknowledgements and realised my error. #whoops

thecuriousreader Full disclosure: I have not read this one (yet)...but this is one of the most intriguing-looking young adult books I've seen in a while. Perfect packaging.
I AM PRINCESS X, written by Cherie Priest, illustrated by Kali Ciesmier. Published by Arthur A. Levine Books, an imprint of @scholasticinc
Once upon a time, two best friends created a princess together. Libby drew the pictures, May wrote the tales, and their heroine, Princess X, slayed all the dragons and scaled all the mountains their imaginations could conjure.
Once upon a few years later, Libby was in the car with her mom, driving across the Ballard Bridge on a rainy night. When the car went over the side, Libby passed away, and Princess X died with her.

Once upon a now: May is sixteen and lonely, wandering the streets of Seattle, when she sees a sticker slapped in a corner window.

Princess X?
When May looks around, she sees the Princess everywhere: Stickers. Patches. Graffiti. There's an entire underground culture, focused around a webcomic at IAmPrincessX.com. The more May explores the webcomic, the more she sees disturbing similarities between Libby's story and Princess X online. And that means that only one person could have started this phenomenon---her best friend, Libby, who lives.

funreadingbooks Eh triste quando a gente tem um livro, ele tem continuação, mas a editora faliu e não se sabe se alguma outra vai publicar (acho que não), caso de Boneshaker, não li ainda, mas me deu desanimo depois que fiquei sabendo, chatiado, minha irmã me falou que o livro é legal. Enfim, casos assim ja lhe aconteceram?

dertbook Book Find: Boneshaker by Cherie Priest. It's Jules Verne meets George Romero. In the early days of the American Civil War, a worse catastrophe than mere war comes to the Pacific Northwest. Namely greed, and poor city planning in Seattle—you'd be right to sense a satire here. The gold rush of the times spurs an inventor, one Leviticus Blue, to invent a massive and wild drill contraption turned mega-death incubator. It is mistakenly let loose on Seattle during a test run, destroying several blocks of downtown (this sounds eerily familiar to the city's planning malaise). This uncorks a subterranean vein of blight gas that turns people into zombies, called "rotters". Yes, a new inventive name for zombies! Or is this just a parody of dissatisfied Seattle downtowners?

The result: one helluva steampunk novel with zombies, air pirates, criminal gangs, armed citizens and other characters wreaking havoc. With villains like these who needs to mention the heroes, right?

This is Priest's first novel in a series that is garnering good reviews. It was nominated for two sci-fi awards. There was supposed to be a film in the works, too. But that may have suffered the same fate as Seattle's light rail train dreams.

No worries, we've got the Tor paperback at DERT... #boneshaker #cheriepriest #bookfind #booklove #bookporn #read #dertbook #DERT

milliebot_reads [·_·[] library book haul!
I've been wanting to read the Discworld series for a while and I'm glad I started. Really enjoying Color of Magic so far. Cherie Priest has been in my Amazon cart for ages, figured I'd finally check her out. Also been wanting to read something by V.E. Schwab for quite some time. Then I decided I'll give Pierce a second chance and see where he goes with Golden Son.

libbybulloff #tbt From a 2010 studio shoot with novelist Cherie Priest. I absolutely loved the shade of blue her hair was at the time. Hard to believe it's been 5 years. 1mon

spookymulder86 Starting this young adult book "Maplecroft" ~ The Borden Dispatches by #cheriepriest . It is basically summarized as a continuing story from Lizzie's POV about the "evil" that had entered her parents and what she had to do. (#40whacks ) Now, her and her sister are settled in a new town but Lizzie senses the evil still coming after her and waits with her axe night after night. ..boo! That's my summary of the jacket summary, lol. Hope it's good; can't ever get enough lizzie! #youngadult #youngadultreads #yareads #freelizzie #leavelizziealone #truecrime #truecrimerevamped #shedidit #constantreader #bibliophile #book #scary #thebordendispatches #maplecroft #womenmurderers 2mon
