Cover Art Friday: Something Old & Something New...

Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living—one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.

Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was like a jewel-box without a jewel—a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.

This was not that world.

Have you figured out what this is??? If you guessed the highly anticipated sequel to Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke & Bone, then you are right!!!! I am OVER THE MOON ecstatic about this news! I knew there was going to be a book 2, but I had no idea we would be getting information this soon about it, because guess what?? Days of Blood & Starlight has a publish date around fall of 2012! It sounds soooo far away, but at least it's within this year! *does a dance* I'm even more excited about the movie buzz surrounding Daughter of Smoke & Bone. I just pray to the high heavens that they cast Akiva right! *stares off into the distance and drools*


Since we are on the topic of hot angels (still drooling over Akiva!)....I couldn't resist posting this absolutely gorgeous cover art of Wicked Nights, book 1 in the Angels of the Dark series by one of my favorite adult romance authors, Gena Showalter. Wicked Nights will be released on June 26th, the day before my BIRTHDAY, woohoo! Happy Birthday to me! Yeah, we have awhile, but at least we have something to stare at until then! Happy Friday! ~Mia~

From the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld comes a dark, seductive new series featuring angels poised at the brink of destruction…

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed too dangerous, too ruthless, and if he isn’t careful, he’ll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice
will not be deterred . . . until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he’s never before known.

Accused of a crime s
he did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation—or her ultimate damnation?


  1. I've not heard of Daughter of Smoke & Bone and it sounds really interesting. Thanks so much for the post Mia!

    Followed you here from Blogaholic and love the feel of your blog. I completely agree with you that there is a book out there for everyone and the importance of reading for children (and everyone!). You have a new follower (me!). :)

    1. Thank you SO much for your kind words and joining my blog! I just checked out yours and joined. I LOVE Oscar Wilde! He has some really awesome quotes :)

      I'll definitely check out your blog in more detail tomorrow as I see you have some really cool stuff on there. I appreciate the support-- my blog is fairly new and I am learning new things every day, taking one step at a time. I suck at html stuff, so it was a real labor of love to get my blog laid out the way I wanted it. Thank the gods that blogger does majority of the stuff for you!

      Anyway, thanks again! I have a feeling we will be crossing paths quite often in the future :)

      Your new follower as well,
