Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme created by Renee @ It’s Book Talk. This meme is an awesome way to share old favorites that were published over a year ago or even books that you’re finally reading after much time has passed. I have plenty of those to share! If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board. Please link back to her by using the link above.
I just received an email update from S. Jae-Jones regarding the cover reveal for Shadowsong and an excerpt from the book due out January 2018! You can read the excerpt below and preorder the book on Amazon if you’d like!
I instantly fell in love with the cover for Wintersong, and I think this one is just as beautiful!
I’m super excited and can’t wait to read Shadowsong!
It’s been six months since Liesl left the Goblin King and returned to the world above. Now that she’s back, she’s determined to further her brother’s music career — and her own. But there’s something wrong with Josef; he’s cold, distant, and withdrawn. And to make matters worse, Liesl hasn’t been able to forget the Goblin King… or the music he inspired.
But then, troubling signs begin to indicate that the barrier between her world and the Underground is crumbling. So Liesl is forced to return the Underground to figure out what is happening — and what is the truth of the Goblin King.
You’ll have to wait until January 30, 2018 to find out what’s next for Liesl, Josef, and the Goblin King. But don’t worry — Bustle has an exclusive peek at the cover, plus an excerpt from the novel. See it all below!
I was SUPER excited today when my inbox had a message from S.Jae-Jones stating that the new Wintersong #2 book was titled with a release date! I wanted to re-post this for all those who haven’t subscribed yet. Her website is (http://sjaejones.com/).
This is coming straight from my email:
The moment I saw Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones I had to buy it. The cover, the title, the blurb-pretty much everything about the book baited me. First, I must say that I’m a Labyrinth freak and I’ve been highly anticipating reading this. I was under the impression that this was a true Labyrinth retelling, but there’s more going on here.
I was so taken-back in just the first 70 pages of the book. The authors writing style is so appealing. It’s exquisite, dark, and romantic. There were also music elements consistent throughout the entire story which I loved. I truly savored this book and the writing is what I appreciated the most.
“Those icy eyes glittered, and I was afraid. I trembled, but not with cold. I ached, but not with pain. My feet began to move of their own accord, and I followed the Goblin King out of the light and into the darkness.”
I absolutely loved the way the author added a few poems by Christina Rossetti.
A linnet in a gilded cage, –
A linnet on a bough, –
In frosty winter one might doubt
Which bird is luckier now.
But let the trees burst out in leaf,
And nests be on the bough,
Which linnet is the luckier bird,
Oh who could doubt it now? Continue reading “Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones”
