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.”
“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!
