Are these moments some of your favorites?

Which moment is your favorite?

One of my most favorite moments is when Augustus, Hazel and Isaac are egging Isaac’s ex-girlfriend’s car. Hazel is feeling a little weary of throwing eggs in the middle of the day and asks Augustus if they should come back when it’s dark. Augustus’ reply is brilliant “It’s always dark to Isaac.”. BRILLIANT.

Giveaway

Comment with your favorite moment of either the book or the movie and you will be entered to win a Little Infinities Extended Edition Blu-ray of The Fault In Our Stars.

Giveaway will end at midnight next Wednesday, October 8, 2014. Open to US and Canada only.

THE BOOK THIEF

Based on the beloved best-selling book comes an “extremely moving” (Leonard Maltin, Indiewire) story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany. When her mother can no longer care for her, Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR® Winner Geoffrey Rush* and OSCAR® Nominee Emily Watson**). Although she arrives illiterate, Liesel is encouraged to learn to read by her adoptive father. When the couple then takes in Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding from Hitler’s army, Liesel befriends him. Ultimately, words and imagination provide the friends with an escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).

*Actor, Shine, 1996 **Actress, Hilary and Jackie, 1998; Breaking the Waves, 1996

My Thoughts

I have already read this book and it was amazing. If you didn’t request it via NetGalley yet I would highly suggest it! There is also a Goodreads giveaway that ends on Tuesday too.

I didn’t love this trailer though. This book has quite a few plot twists so I would imagine it to be difficult to create a trailer without spoiling the story for the reader. I felt Kitty’s voice was too soft spoken. If you didn’t love the trailer I still think the book will blow your mind. If you read The Selection series by Kiera Cass and enjoy movies/shows like The Bourne Identity, Alias or Covert Affairs you’ll love this book.

PAWN releases next Tuesday, November 26th.

Welcome to my stop on the PAWN Blog Tour!

Here’s a quick interview I had with Aimée.

Aimée I’d love to hear more about the advanced technology you developed for PAWN. Did you do some research? Did you maybe talk to some scientists, or did you just let your imagination flow?

Part of the fascination of Kitty’s society for me was the fact that they suffered economic collapse seventy-odd years earlier – and because of that, they’ve been focused on rebuilding instead of advancing technology that wasn’t necessary to sustaining life. There isn’t a whole lot of advanced technology in the series that doesn’t have root in something we have today, and that’s really because of what the society as a whole has gone through. In many ways, they’re still recovering.

Especially the motorized walkways and the “cloning” was very fascinating. How did you come up with these specific ideas?

The motorized walkways exist today in various places – for instance, airports – and the next logical step in my mind was having them in parts of cities that are populated by the rich. As far as Kitty being Masked goes, a lot of the inspiration from that comes from people even today who get thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of plastic surgery to try to look like famous people. Recently I read a story in the news about a man who spent a huge sum of money to look like Justin Bieber – and it’s following that same sort of possibility, but the scientists in Kitty’s world have had decades more time to perfect it.

What kind of technology that we will find in PAWN would you like to have for yourself?

The necklace Greyson gives Kitty. I don’t want to spoil too much, but having that kind of technology hanging around your neck would be amazing.

I agree! That necklace was pretty awesome!

About PAWN

YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING.

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

There’s only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that’s not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she’s only beginning to understand.

Overpowered by Mark H. Kruger

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers | August 27, 2013 | 432 pages

I will have a review posted soon, most likely next month.

Summary (Goodreads)

The world’s safest town might actually be a deadly kind of dangerous. And Nica Ashley is about to learn the hard way.

Nica Ashley is accustomed to traveling the globe with her journalist mother, so when she gets sent to live in a small town with the father she barely knows, she’s in for a bit of a culture shock. Barrington prides itself on being a sleepy, family community with the lowest crime rates in the state of Colorado. There’s even a private security force run by Barrington Technology (BarTech) and a nightly curfew for all residents.

On Nica’s first day at school, she meets Jackson Winters and finds out he went from school superstar to living ghost after his girlfriend disappeared a few months ago. When Nica follows him out after curfew one night, they both witness a mysterious green flash-and the next morning the power has gone out and all the birds are dead.

But secrets are well and alive, and as Nica and some of her friends discover they now have abilities best described as “super,” they also realize that Barrington might not be so safe. And that BarTech is looking for them.

It is my pleasure to share with you the cover to a much anticipated sequel by A.G. Henley! THE DEFIANCE is book two of her Brilliant Darkness series. The first book, THE SCROUGE, was one of my most favorite books last year.
You can read my review of THE SCROUGE from the Blog Tour I participated in (and enter to win the entire series below!). At $2.99 (Amazon.com) that’s an  incredible deal for an amazing book. THE SCROUGE was a 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award Finalist.

Without further ado, here is the cover to THE DEFIANCE, due to publish July 29th, 2013!

Defiance

Cover design by Robin Ludwig Design Inc.

Summary

Suspicion Trust. Fear Compassion. Hate Love.

Fennel and Peree learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems. Now they need to convince their people that everything they believe is a lie.

An impossible task, especially when someone seems resolved to try anything—even arson and butchery—to destroy Fenn and Peree’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties.

Unable to tell friend from foe and with the Scourge pushing both groups to the breaking point, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future.

Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear.

Connect with A.G. Henley

A.G. Henley is the author of the young adult novel, THE SCOURGE. She is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they’ve had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds. When she’s not writing fiction or shrinking heads, she can be found herding her children and their scruffy dog, Guapo, to various activities while trying to remember whatever she’s inevitably forgotten to tell her husband. She lives in Denver, Colorado.

Giveaway

I was completely serious when I said that THE SCROUGE was one of my favorite books from last year!

Therefore, one winner will receive a Kindle edition of all three of A.G.’s Brilliant Darkness publications!

That includes: The Scrouge (Brilliant Darkness, #1), The Keeper (#1.5) and The Defiance (#2) (pre-ordered once available)!

Defiance
To enter please leave a comment letting me know what you think about the cover for The Defiance.

One winner will be selected via my WordPress giveaway winner picker next Friday, July 12th.

Winner must be 13 or older, shipping to US only, and respond to email with shipping information within 48 hours.
