Time for another Sunday summary, with the SIX best things I’ve found on the web this week!
While I’ve switched from reading the Guardian to the ridiculously brilliantly priced i at just 20p a day, the Graniaud still provides some brilliant articles. This one, by author Patrick Ness on the best ‘unsuitable’ books for teenagers, is a case in point. And totally agree with number 1 as I read it when I was in my mid-20’s and REALLY hated the narrator.
Even though I’m not a fan of Maggie Stiefvater’s werewolf books, there’s a great review here of Shiver by my friend Amanda, a new blogger who I’m sure will be one to follow.
Jaw-dropping story here by Larry at Storyfix about an ‘opportunity’ which I think most authors would probably be wise to miss…
Audrey at Holes in My Brain has a great post previewing upcoming movies as part of her week-long ‘Movies in My Brain’ event. It includes HP7 part 2 and Breaking Dawn part 1 so there’s actually some link to YA fiction there as well, so I can justify shoving it in. Great trailers!
Great interview with Lipstick Laws author Amy Holder over at A Good Addiction – well worth checking out!
And finally - although it seems to be for US residents only - an even BIGGER bargain than last week – Aprilynne Pike is GIVING AWAY her novel Wings as a free download! Check Page Turners’ Blog for the full details, let those of us who don’t live in the States know what it’s like please! Hurry though, it’s only available for another 4 days.
Hope you find something of interest amongst those six, everyone.
