Michelle Hodkin's debut novel, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, terrified readers with one question: What if things were happening to you -- unexplainable things -- and no one believed you? I tore through this book as if I were running a race to the finish. The terrifying one-liners at the end of each chapter made it impossible to put down.
For this reason, I swooned when a copy of The Evolution of Mara Dyer landed on my desk. Evolution picks up where Unbecoming concluded, with Mara convinced that she is being hunted. But what plagued me the most was Mara's own hunt for her sanity. Hodkin is a master of the psyche, raising questions of the conscious and unconscious, the power of thought and desire, but mostly the sheer panic that arises when you realize that you cannot trust yourself.
And then there is Noah Shaw. For those of you who fell in love with Mr. Shaw in The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, I can guarantee that the heat is cranked way up in this book! Even after all they endured in the first book, Mara is wary of the things Noah is still concealing from her. Prepare to be shocked and appalled.…
Reading the last book in a beloved series is a bittersweet moment. The final volume of The Caster Chronicles, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s Beautiful Redemption, is the book that I’ve been waiting for all year. The Caster Chronicles and I have a history; each book arrives with an understanding that I’ll be up reading until it’s finished. It's a conversation with friends that lasts far longer into the night than you intended, but you can't bring yourself to leave. Beautiful Redemption is the last meeting of old friends, so each word—each time it makes me smile or brings up a memory of what we’ve been through together—means all that much more.
How late was I up? Well, I was fortunate enough to receive a publicity copy early from Hachette Book Group Canada. As I had been rereading the previous three books (Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos), when I finished my reread I started Beautiful Redemption. It was 11:00 pm on a Saturday night, and I thought I’d read a chapter or two. Uh yeah, that didn’t happen. I stayed up until 4:30 AM on Sunday morning because I didn’t want to let it go.
After I got a…
Tomorrow, October 23, is the Finale of Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series. We've all been waiting to find out if Nora and Patch will get to stay together despite all the odds, and the fact that destiny wants them to be enemies! Patch is one of the baddest of fallen angel bad boys and it was obvious from the moment I saw the cover of Hush, Hush that it was going to be a hit with readers.
If the amazing trailer is any indication, this last book is going to be a hit, too.
Becca was kind enough to answer three quick questions about writing her series to help get us through this final day in your Finale countdown. Welcome, Becca!
Indigo Teen Blog (ITB): What was it like to see Hush, Hush adapted as a graphic novel?
Becca Fitzpatrick (BF): So. Very. Cool. My publisher asked for input from both me and readers, which made the process that much more special. Like most kids, I read comics when I was young, and I enjoyed getting an insider's peek into the process.
ITB: What impact has knowing that you have readers waiting had on your writing?
BF: With every…
Rachel Hartman’s Governor General award-nominated debut novel, Seraphina, is filled with rich prose and exquisite storytelling that holds the rare magic of a timeless tale between its pages. The scope of the world in Seraphina is dazzling, earthy and medieval, with a freshness that is transformative. This is an old world touched by new magic, whose heroine is called to find a place for herself in a homeland that may not welcome her.
We have the pleasure of presenting a guest post from Rachel Hartman. And, as you will see, the landscape of Canada had a hand in the shaping of this wonderful novel.
The Hon. David Johnston became Governor General of Canada in October of 2010, just a week or two before our Canadian citizenship test. My husband and I had been studying; we joked that it was fiendishly sneaky of Immigration Canada to change one of the answers at the last minute. I repeated the new name to myself, however, as we drove through the drizzle to our testing site, half convinced I was going to choke.
Being named one of the GG Literary Award finalists almost exactly two years later holds a certain poignancy for me,…
