Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a new weekly feature here at The Book Swarm and the gorgeous ladies over at Bewitched Bookworms. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.
I’ll admit it; I’m excited and, yeah, technically, this isn’t a book (but it’s based on one so that totally counts) but it does premier on Starz August 9th. I didn’t love Outlander the first time I read it but was convinced to read it again and, yeah. I’m in. Men in kilts, Scottish accents, Jamie…all brought to the wee screen in a sweeping story as The Skye Boat Song plays during the opening credits. *swoon* Did I just add Starz to my lineup? Yes, I did. Even as I was thinking about dropping cable to save some money (Mar needs a new car), they pull me back in!
And, because I can’t help myself, a piping video (hey, modern day Scots! In kilts!). Field Marshal Montgomery is the best pipe band in the world (literally — they won the World Championships nine times including the last three years. This is how pipes are supposed to sound, people. Perfection.) and, though they’re technically from Northern Ireland, I won’t hold it against them:
