I've added a widget counting down to the release of Kiersten White's sure-to-be-awesome new Paranormal Adventure novel, Supernaturally, at the end of my sidebar. Don't worry, I haven't sold out! I'm not getting paid to advertise the book, nor am I doing it as a personal favour - heck, I don't even know Kiersten. But I do know I picked up her first novel, Paranormalcy, almost reluctantly and wound up falling in love with the book's hilarious, kickass narrator and awesome YA voice. Anyone who knows me, or feels like they're starting to know me in this oddly close little cyber-world of ours, will know exactly the sort of quirky, independent heroine I love. And monster-hunter Evie (part Buffy Summers, part Legally Blonde's Elle Woods and part Disney's Little Mermaid) ticks all the boxes: she's badass, girly and desperately just wants to be like everyone else!
Paranormalcy was practically shoved upon me by an online buddy who thought I needed a break and figured I'd like Kiersten White 'cos she wrote a bit like me (a massive compliment, by the way - thank you CrazyWriterFriend!). Supernaturally, on the other hand, is a book I'm practically itching to get my hands on, I'm dying to see what happens next and am counting down the days til I can pick up where the characters left off. So that's my current literary obsession - but what's yours? Have you ever had a book pushed on you that you wound up falling in love with? Is there anything that just seem to tick all your boxes? What books (published or as-yet-unpublished) are you itching to read, and why? Let me know!
