Hello Darling Readers,
Exciting news and a bit of shameless self-promotion. . . I have an article in Penguin's August issue of online magazine 'Off the Shelf', with the lovely Melina Marchetta on the cover!
Entitled 'Dystopia', I discuss all things Dystopic and why bleak may just be better. I also do some gushing over Penguin's latest YA Dystopian offerings - including my recent favorite's, 'Legend' and 'Days Like This'.
And if you'll notice, I do make mention of Ally Condie's upcoming 'Crossed' . . . because I have read it (and loooooooooved it!). I was given an advanced copy for the purpose of this article and I can't wait to share my thoughts closer to release date (oh it's good - it's very, very good!).
Anyway, I just wanted to say 'looky what I did!' and let you all know it's free and available online right now!
I had so much fun writing the article (and getting my hands on some advance book copies!). BIG thanks to Del Robinson and Erin Wamala from Penguin for thinking of me and making it all happen! I'd love to do it all again some time (honestly, I could write about books for days and days. . .)
