“So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.”

Best Books of 2012

I read so many amazing books this year--I reached a total of _ books for the whole year, and since I tend to put down books I don't like, that's a lot of good books. But there were a few who rose above as new favorites, and here they are. The top three books I loved best in 2012:

Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan

I don't normally read a lot of nonfiction but oh my God, this book is amazing. I flew through it, shocked and enthralled by what was happening and in the back of my mind I kept thinking, "oh my God this is a true story, this really happened!" It's incredible. Susannah Cahalan is my new hero.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

So everyone has heard of this book by now, and it deserves the attention. The alternating POVs are incredible--they're both so real and authentic and I loved them equally. And by chapter 3 I was hooked and I knew I wouldn't be putting the book down until I was done. I desperately want to write a book this intelligent some day.

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

I love this book. It's beautiful, it's engrossing, it's swoonworthy, and it's not quite like anything else. It's one of those books that I read and wished the world was real and these characters were real. I want to go to their town and be their friend.

The Unbreakable Giveaway

Unbreakable ARCs are here. In fact I have three of them.

The question is who wants one? They really don't do anyone any good if they're just sitting on my bookshelf at home, right?

So I'm giving those copies away and giving someone the chance to go on a date with Ben.

Here are the details:

Two winners will get an advanced copy of Unbreakable


One grand prize winner will get an advanced copy of Unbreakable and be able to name a character in the novella

Now this character that you'd have to name, here's the deal--she's going on a date with Ben, and she needs a name. You can name her after yourself, after someone else, or you can make a name up.*

The contest is open internationally and is open from right now until midnight Dec 14th.
I'm happy to sign the ARCs if you want them signed.
If you haven't read Unraveling, you can still enter. I can send you a copy of Unraveling instead.
