About Whitney Taylor: 

Whitney Taylor (@_tattedunicorn) is a YA writer that only speaks one language—fangirl.

A word of caution: you may have to wait more than a few months for some but only a few days for others (and at least 3 are already out! YES!).

Captive Prince: a Celebration at Binge on Books

It’s February 1st, and for most people, it naturally means the beginning of the month, while for some of us, it actually comes as the end of a very, very long wait.

Tomorrow, February 2nd, the last book in the Captive Prince trilogy by C.S. Pacat will make its debut, and thus put what I’m sure is a gorgeous and satisfying cap on a hugely incredible fannish experience.

You see, Kings Rising isn’t just a long-anticipated book–it’s fandom history, and fandom celebration. Years ago in the wild fannish lands of LiveJournal, Captive Prince got its start as a serial, with chapters being posted every few weeks or so under “freece.” Nominally a well-known trope of slavefic, this series quickly spread like wildfire through fandom, finding its way into many a corner and heart that may not have clicked on it had it not been for their friends discovering it and telling them, no, seriously. It’s not just slavefic. It’s so much more. You have to read this. You HAVE to.

Cookies & Books: A Fabulous Holiday Collaboration with Cooking Up Romance

It’s beginning to look a lot like…well, any old day? From the dearth of holiday preparations here at Binge on Books you would never guess that the holidays are right around the corner. Every year I hope to spruce the place up a bit with some fun holiday photos of a gorgeous something or other I popped out of the oven but that will never, ever happen. There’s a very important reason for this: you see…well…the long and short of it is, I am a rather impatient and diffident baker (which is probably why I prefer reading to cooking). While most everyone I know is home baking something warm and fragrant, I’m huddled next to the Christmas tree with my kindle praying for some kindly soul to take pity on me and shower my home with baked goods. Someone usually does but it requires quite a lot of coaxing and quite a lot of smiling and far more energy than I can muster on a good day. This year, however, no cajoling was required; the baked goods came to me. I seem to have been extra specially good because Elisabeth Lane of Cooking up Romance gifted me with cookies! Eight mouthwatering holiday cookies to be exact. When I saw them, I gasped. If you don’t know Elisabeth and her gorgeous blog, do take a moment to peruse her site. She reads books and then creates recipes complete with lovely photos of foods inspired from them.

I’m not sure what prompted this gesture of good will. Maybe she saw the results of my lackluster holiday baking attempts from last year:
Judith Cooks

Whatever the reason, today we have 8 cookies for you to drool over. And what’s even better? The whole Binge on Books team has jumped on this post to pair these glorious cookies with 8 of our favorite reads. It’s an epic Cookie-Book Pairing you will not want to miss (think Meals and Wine…only BETTER cause, well, there’s books!). Here’s a hint of what’s to come:
