the story of Kami, Jared, Ash, Angela, Holly and Rusty, their life and loves and battles and in some cases deaths, I’m planning to finish at three books.
How to Prepare for the Worst
1. Look at the list of characters.
2. Pick our your favourites
3. Remember that Sarah is an evil genius.
4. And that beloved characters are often “marked for death”
*smiles* you guys are the best.
I may or may not know some of the answers sought herein. I’M JUST SAYING. *looks mysterious*
People have been asking about my favorite books of the year, so I figured this would make it easy. It’s a few days late, but there was one I started reading in 2012 and wanted to finish so I could put it on the list! Caveats: I know several of these authors but I wouldn’t tell you I liked something if I didn’t. And if your favorite isn’t on the list, I probably just haven’t had a chance to read it yet. (I’m always looking for recommendations!) Oh, and these are books PUBLISHED in 2012, no older books I read in 2012, however great they were.
Why should fans who preordered (or bought during release week) be left out of contests? They shouldn’t! Post a picture of yourself with your copy of Unspoken (yes, on your eReader counts!) and tag it with #hotblonddeath. I’ll randomly pick one of you to win a $10 gift certificate to your online bookstore of choice. You have until September 18 for this too. Go go go!
Reblogging just because I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH.
“Unspoken is a brilliant atmospheric, gothic piece, but at no point does it take itself seriously.The dialogue, especially that of Kami, can be wonderfully witty and sarcastic whilst staying on just the right side of feeling forced… . Sarah Rees Brennan has managed to find a perfect balance between creepy and comedy.”
So I may have mentioned a few times on my tumblr that I have some not-so-good news about the September 11 release of my Gothic novel Unspoken.
Here it is: Barnes & Noble stores near you might not have it. I figured you guys should know now, because I don’t want anyone to go in hoping it’ll be…
Obviously, this is VERY STUPID of Barnes & Noble. But never fear - as the release date draws nearer, we will have a list of handy links for you where you can order the book.
…and we just might have a way for you to WIN a copy, too.
Look, it’s Jared! Jared is here to say “Happy Team Human publication day!”
I know this is an Unspoken tumblr, but I couldn’t allow the publication of Sarah’s Team Human (cowritten with Justine Larbalestier) go unmarked. I had the opportunity to read an ARC, and it’s SO GOOD YOU GUYS. You need to read it if you like vampires. Or if you don’t like vampires. Or if you don’t care about vampires one way or the other, but like stories about friendship, or first love, or social justice. Or funny things. Basically, what I am saying is, read this book!
To make it easy for you:
- Amazon US
- Amazon Canada
- Amazon UK
- Barnes & Noble
- Book Depository
- IndieBound (Find in an independent bookstore near you or buy online!)
- Worldcat (Find in a library near you!)
Really, is that easy enough? Would you like any other links? Tell me and I’ll find them! I really want you to read Team Human.
Read this book! Really! I loved it so much! Here are lots of links to make it easy for you!
“This book was completely delightful. I laughed, I cried, I sent the author irrational emails in the middle of the night calling her horrible names …”
My first thoughts on Unspoken!
Behold - the fanciest thing I own, a box full of Advance Readers’ Copies of TEAM HUMAN, a book that Justine Larbalestier and I wrote, which will not be out until JULY! Would you LIKE one?
It is about that first time in school when your best girlfriend has a boyfriend and she loves him SO MUCH and she talks about him ALL THE TIME… and also, he is a vampire.
Seemed a good idea to start tumblring with a FANCY GIVEAWAY!
If this gets reblogged 100 times, I shall put all who did so in a hat for one of these fine fancy things…
Oooh! I am SO EXCITED about this book, you guys.
