Like most of you, I read a lot. My favorite books are ones that are written so well, the structure so tight, I feel my own writings are strengthened just from reading them. Sometimes this can be difficult to find in a young adult book.
But I just discovered one. And I am so excited.
It's called ANGELFALL by Susan Ee. It's an apocalyptic Angel book, which so isn't my type of story, especially after reading Hush, Hush, Fallen and The Mortal Instrument series.
But Angelfall is different. It has a kick-butt female heroine who makes logical choices and isn't obsessed with the "man" in her life. That doesn't mean the book lacks any heat, though. Quite the opposite, but it's not the focus of the story.
What I loved about this book is the tension. It's expressed in every chapter, if not on every page. The author pushed her main character to the extreme, always increasing the stakes. Because of this, the book is a page turner. There are some horribly wonderful parts that shocked me much like the book Hunger Games did, but didn't take me over the edge to where I might be offended. You'll know what I'm talking about when you read the book.
And now's your chance. I'm giving away either an eBook or paper copy, which ever you'd like. All you have to do is:
