My Author this Month is: Sarah Rees Brennan
I completely fell in love with Sarah's writing after I read The Demon's Lexicon. I just loved the book and after i figured out there was more than one I fell in love with those too. Nick was my absolute favorite character and hottie of all time. I found it amazing that she had homosexual characters in her books. That was the first book I had read to have that. Then when she came out with Team Human I knew I had to read that book too. Team Human although not my all time favorite I still did enjoy it. I loved how not all the characters were white, and not all interested in the opposite sex and it was awesome. So needless to say I have a very huge obsession with my favorite author ever. She also watched Vampire Diaries which is complete awesomesauce!!! She even did an interview about it HERE. You can check her out at any of theses sites: Twitter, Goodreads, Website, Blog, & Tumblr or creep and stalk her pages like I do.
Her new book Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) is being released this month (Sept) 11th. So I am totally doing the countdown dance of joy!!
The series goes in this order:
Her book Team Human was released this July and Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) will be released September 11th, 2012!
You can order, or buy your books at: Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, The Book Depository, or where ever books are sold near you.
About Sarah from Sarah Rees Brennan:
Sarah Rees Brennan was born and raised in Ireland by the sea, where her teachers valiantly tried to make her fluent in Irish (she wants you to know it’s not called Gaelic) but she chose to read books under her desk in class instead. The books most often found under her desk were Jane Austen, Margaret Mahy, Anthony Trollope, Robin McKinley and Diana Wynne Jones, and she still loves them all today.
After college she lived briefly in New York and somehow survived in spite of her habit of hitching lifts in fire engines. She began working on The Demon’s Lexicon while doing a Creative Writing MA and library work in Surrey, England. Since then she has returned to Ireland to write and use as a home base for future adventures. Her Irish is still woeful, but she feels the books under the desk were worth it.
Sarah’s newest book is Unspoken, a romantic Gothic mystery about a girl named Kami Glass, who discovers her imaginary friend is Jared Lynburn. He is one of the mysterious Lynburn family who have returned to the sinister manor on the hill that looms over her town, and who may or may not be involved in dark deeds in the woods. It’s lucky that she’s a sassy girl reporter determined to discover all the secrets that have been kept from her by the town, Jared, and her own family. Buy Unspoken through Random House, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
Hope you enjoyed and that you check out this amazing author and her books soon.
Oh and so the jealousy runs thick this month I actually got to meet one of my all time favorite people in the entire world at the Chicago Booklovers Convention (2012). So awesome I was squealing with excitement the whole day.
