Book I'm Reading: A Random Post

Okay, I haven't posted in around a week so I am writting this random post about a book I just started but really like so far; Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins. Its about a fifteen year old witch who uses her magic multiple times causing all sorts of disasterous scenes that leave people guessing what and who she really is. Her parents decide to send her to Hex Hall, a school for witches, faeries, vampires and shapeshifters. This is as far as I've gotten but i decided to post this because I really like it so far and I would definatley recomend it for anyone who loves YA Fiction literature. I am really excited to do a review on it and I suggest that everyone who is reading this to go check it out! Expect more reviews soon! :)

  1. Dear Vikki,

    I'm an award-winning author with a new book of YA fiction. Ugly To
    Start With is a series of thirteen interrelated stories about teen life
    published by West Virginia University Press in November
    of 2011.

    Can I interest you in reviewing it?

    My book's only 160 pages short. The writing is easy and open, and all
    the stories are interconnected--same hero and story arc throughout. It
    reads like a brisk novel in the form of stories.

    If you write me back at johnmcummings@aol.com, I'll send you a PDF of my book.

    At this point, my small publisher is out of available review copies, so
    I hope and politely ask that you consider the PDF. I would be
    very grateful.

    My publisher, I should add, can offer your readers a free excerpt
    of my book through a link from your blog to my publisher's website:

    Here’s what Jacob Appel, celebrated author of Dyads and The
    Vermin Episode, says about my new collection: "In Ugly to Start With,
    set in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, Cummings tackles the
    challenges of boyhood adventure and family conflict in a taut,
    crystalline style that captures the triumphs and tribulations of
    small-town life. He has a gift for transcending the particular
    experiences to his characters to capture the universal truths of human
    affection and suffering--emotional truths that the members of his
    audience will recognize from their own experiences of childhood and
    adolescence.”

    My short stories have appeared in more than seventy-five literary
    journals, including North American Review, The Kenyon Review, Alaska
    Quarterly Review, and The Chattahoochee Review. Twice I have
    been nominated for The Pushcart Prize. My short story "The Scratchboard
    Project" received an honorable mention in The Best American Short
    Stories 2007.

    I am also the author of the nationally acclaimed coming-of-age
    novel The Night I Freed John Brown (Philomel Books, Penguin Group,
    2009),winner of The Paterson Prize for Books for Young Readers (Grades
    7-12)and one of ten books recommended by USA TODAY.

    Kindly,

    John Michael Cummings
