Teaser Tuesday # 42 - Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard by Jonathan Auxier

My first official read of 2015 was Jonathan Auxier's amazing Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes so when I saw that the follow-up, Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard, was available to request on NetGalley I was fully prepared to beg for a chance to read it early.

I shouldn't have asked for it.

Oh .... don't get me wrong .... it's not that I shouldn't have asked for it because it's BAD. My problem is exactly the opposite! I shouldn't have asked for it because I can't stand not having the actual real beautiful book in my hands to read. eBooks are great and definitely serve their purpose in the world and make reading while walking/falling asleep/pretending to work/riding on poorly lit public transportation/etc. a lot easier .... but ....

I've already hit the pre-order button for the hardcover (and, once my tax refund hits or the money fairy visits I'll be getting a hardcover of Peter Nimble to go with it ... which I fully figured was going to happen a year ago).

The book is being released on April 5th. I'm not sure how quickly it will get to me after that, but I may just have to call in sick to work so I can curl up with it.

  1. I don't know if it's good or bad advice, but I'm definitely swayed by a good cover.

    I know what you mean about wanting a physical copy of a book.

  2. Me too. I got some of my best reads due to the cover. "The Snow Child" by Eowyn Ivey for example :-)

  4. Sometimes I just have to have the physical copy, too. Good teaser! Here's mine: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-17E

  5. I do love a good cover, too, and the downside to reading mostly e-books these days is not being able to hold the book...sigh.

    This sounds good. Here's mine: “MISSING PIECES”

  6. I don't get many hardcovers anymore since I have filled all my shelf space. This does look lovely though. The teaser on my YA blog comes from a fantasy - Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan. Happy reading!

  7. I too have discovered some awesome books based solely upon the cover and or a combination of the cover and the title! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I also am often swayed by book covers - especially as I generally avoid reading the back cover blurb which can all too often provide spoilers...

  9. That's quite an endorsement! I feel that way too--I like to own print copies of my favorites, even as convenient as e-copies are. This sounds like a good one!

  10. Oh I totally judge a book by its cover and this one is adorable!
