Book Review & Tour: Charming
When one of my agent sisters posted about her upcoming review tour I eagerly jumped on board. Not only did I want to help a sister out, her book sounded amazing. OMG (yes I went there, had to) it blew amazing right out of the water. I haven't read a YA book in a long time. I'm SO glad this one was the one that broke my hiatus. Then again maybe I'm not because this is going to be an incredibly hard act to follow. Superb writing draws you along through this heartrending novel, writing so good that even as an author I never once stopped to think about the nuts and bolts of the writing within~it's just that good. This is like Scream combined with The Fault in Our Stars. That may not sound amazing to everyone, but it was spot on for me. If you like suspenseful, mysterious, edgy fiction with a heart, this book needs to be your first priority when it releases and it is an absolute MUST READ for October. Keep your eye on this one peeps, she has the makings of being the next 'Big Thing'.
Now that I'm done gushing, here is a bit about it, and a Kindle giveaway at the bottom!
