A Darkness Strange and Lovely Giveaway

A Darkness Strange and Lovely—book 2 in the Something Strange and Deadly series–doesn’t release for another 5 months. Which means doing this giveaway is a wee bit early.

Interview with Katherine Marsh, author of Jepp, Who Defied The Stars

One of my favourite books of 2012 was Jepp, Who Defied The Stars, by the amazing Katherine Marsh. And I wasn’t alone in my love!

I blame this attitude on my mother, who used to allow my siblings and me to be “Queen/King for […]
