For those following my Goodreads account, you’ll know that back in April I read Love in the Time of Global Warming. Well, if you want to get technical, I listened to the audiobook. I didn’t end up reviewing it partly due to it having been an audio read and partly because I really loved the book but it was one of those that I felt I couldn’t do justice to with my words. It obviously ended up being a 5 star rating on Goodreads, but if you need more than stars…just see what I types a few seconds ago.
Today’s just as great of a day in the book world as yesterday was (Tiffany King’s new release day), as well as as great of a day as when I finished book one in Block’s series. It’s the day we can all run to the store (or web browser you’re already in) and grab a copy of The Island of Excess Love where we can continue on our journey with Pen through an Odyssey retelling in a recently post-apocalyptic world.
I can only see great things ahead within the pages of this new book, based on what I read with book one. I hope some of you dive in as well.

PSST…Francesca Lia Block has another new release coming up on September 16th. It’s a very different book than this one, but it’s also on my TBR because Block hasn’t disappointed me yet. You can find out about that one, and find the pre-order links, here:
About the Author:
Francesca Lia Block was born in Los Angeles to a poet and a painter, their creativity an obvious influence on her writing. Another influence was her childhood love of Greek mythology and fairy tales.
She has lived in the city all her life, and still resides there with her daughter, Jasmine Angelina (about whom she wrote her book Guarding the Moon), her son Samuel Alexander, and her two dogs: a springer spaniel named Vincent Van Go Go Boots and a beagle mix named Thumper.
She left only to attend the University of California, Berkeley. She has often professed her love of Los Angeles, calling it a “Jasmine-scented, jacaranda-purple, neon sparked city,” which she has nicknamed in her books “Shangri-LA.”
