'Parently Miss Corene Only Reads Books with Girls With Pretty Dresses on the Cover

We have a new feature here at Bookslingers: Books of the Future!


Okay, it's a title in progress. It's the best that I could do after running out of Scottish Breakfast Tea (the only tea strong enough to wake me up in the morning. It's like a flying Scotsman kick to the head). A snappier title will happen as soon as I restock. Alternate titles were Coming Down the Pipeline and Books on the Brink. Consider yourselves lucky.   

Miss Corene will be writing the first Books of the Future feature because she hasn't told Miss Maiar that we have a new feature. Surprise!

Alternate Title: The Pith Helmets of Adorableness

The third in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series by Maryrose Wood. Third in the Lemony Snicket-esque romp through Victorian high society with mysterios hair dye, children who were raised by wolves and a very proper young governess whose past is shrouded in shrouds.  

Release Date: March 27th, 2012
Excitement Level: Awoooooooooo!

Alternate Title: Did I Just Light My Dress on Magic Fire?
Kat, Incorrigible = Jane Austen + magic tea pots
Renegade Magic = Jane Austen + magic mosaics?

Release Date: April 3, 2012
Excitement Level: Mrs. Bennett's nerves
Alternate Title: FitzOsbornes vs the Sunrise
Third in the Montmaray Journals series which reads like the impoverished and political astute Mitfords. Think I Capture the Castle meets Love in a Cold Climate making out with Jeeves and Wooster in Lynne Olson's Troublesome Young Men's broom closet.

Release Date: October 9th, 2012
Excitement Level: Winston Churchill guffaw

Alternate Title: Courtship & Curses & Where Did the Top of My Face Go?
Third in the Chronicles of Leland Sisters. Loved the first in the series (Bewitching Season), have to admit I was less thrilled about the second (Betraying Season - does everyone in Ireland have to be a charming rogue?) and excited about the third's deliciously purple cover.

Release Date: August 7, 2012
Excitement Level: Giant brooch of financial mismanagement:

I will never tire of making Ever After references. Ever.
