Guess what the Book Fairy sent me!

A review copy of [livejournal.com profile] janni's Bones of Faerie, a post-apocalyptic YA Faerie novel, showed up on my doorstep today, courtesy of a kindly publicity person at Random House. Maybe somebody read my Friday post and decided to answer my hopes.

Yay! Now I can read it right after I finish the (flufftastically awesome) Let It Snow, which I have devoured and am now 2/3 done with.

I also feel the need to add that I spent most of my Friday night reading time re-reading and re-re-reading Jellicoe Road, flipping through it and flipping through it some more, jiggering and rejiggering the pieces--not to make them make sense, because by the end of the book they already do that--but to let them all slide around in my mind some more, and so I wouldn't have to give up the characters. I love them all so much. I miss them like a physical pain.

I'm still carting Jellicoe around with my next to the book I'm currently reading, as if it would be a torment to let it get too far away.

I'm going to review it soon, hopefully. Right now it's still percolating around in my head. Right now, all I can say is read it. It's amazing. Starts slow, but stick with it, because it's seriously amazing.

So watch this space! Jellicoe Road review to come, and them soon after that, Bones of Faerie!
