Just announcing that I’ll be having a blog tour for Falling throughout February.
I’ve got some really great bloggers and reviewers on board and I’ll be putting up a page over the next few days with all the details and links to each of the blogs and the dates that I’ll be going over there.
I’m really excited to hear what people think of my book and I can’t wait for it to start!
Cross My Heart by Katie Klein. Contemporary Ya.
I know it’s not one from the contemporary challenge for this year because it was published in 2011, but I wanted to read it anyway.
It’s been a while since I read anything in the contemporary genre, and I was taken back to why it is so good.
Katie writes really well, I love the short snappy sentences and the thought-provoking word choices, actually, he way it was written is a lot of why I liked it so much. It built a world, not just the character, you felt like you knew her and were invested in her problems, and I love that.
A lot of it read just as you would expect a ya romance to, but the twist at the end made me stop and re read. I don’t want to give anything away, but I doubt too many people would guess what was about to happen.
I thought that I would quickly mention it does have some bad language, not a lot, but I thought I’d note it just in case some people would find it offensive.
Overall, I thought it was well worth reading and the price tag of $3.99, which is slightly higher than some other indie authors, but I felt it was justified.
