That's right you guessed it...
It's time for Paranormal Wasteland's first ever
What is "Get to know me through books?"
I thought you would never ask *winks*
Many of you may or may not know this is my first ever blog. Yep yep that's right I'm a new proud momma to this here wasteland.
*wipes happy tears*
Just last Thursday I introduced myself and Paranormal Wasteland into the wonderful world of blogging. For those of you that missed it check out The Girl Behind The Mask by clicking here to get better aquainted. You will quickly see that I'm a rambler. Yes, yes I know it, but refuse to change. LOLz
You will also learn other things about me, like for instence I have a serious reading addiction. I understand the first step to recovery is acceptance, but I assure you there is no recovery in site, nor do I want one ;)
Oops I'm rambling again!
Let's get back on track shall we?
Yes, yes, right here we go.
For me at least, the books we read, the ones that haunt us, the ones we want to chain up under lock and key and never let go off, says alot about who we are as a person.
So without further ado let me introduce you to the books that I not only want to keep under lock and key, but that have also locked a piece of me inside them as well. Seriously I would probably tuck them under my pillow at night, if I didn't think the hubz would have me committed for it.
This book has left me searching, hoping, praying, for the strength to make it until the next book comes out. We all know that Edgar Allen Poe was a amazingly dark and twisted piece of awesome, and how Kelly Creagh weaved that awesomeness into this book will leave you breathless....and maybe a little scared of the dark. *winks*
It goes without saying that waiting for the next installment is breaking me to pieces.
This next book also dwells in the dark recesses of the paranormal wasteland.
Can you tell I like the dark corners?
So last but certainly not least I bring you.....
In this book Brenna Yovanoff paints a dark and twisted world below the city of Gatin. This is a great changeling book, and the House of Mayhem will take you through all sorts of nightmariss monsters, but in the end Yovanoff will suprise you, and leave you feeling for these creatures. While I am midwest born and raised, my family is mostly from the south. As most of you know southerns have a thing or two for superstions. My great grandmother was no exception to that. She passed those beliefs on to me, and you will see some of that in this book. Yes this is again another scary book, but there is some awesome music involved too. She describes it so well that even though you know the songs and singers don't actually exsist, you need to buy it anyways! No seriously I contacted her after reading this asking for downloads. It was that good, but unfortunately it was all a figment of Yovanoff's amazing imagination.
Not only do both of these books hae a Tim Burton esque quality to them they share something else in common as well. Can you guess what it is??
Ok, ok I'll tell ya.
They are both debut books for these authors! So keep your eyes peeled for their next books.
The fact that these two books affect me the way they do says alot about me. In the spirit of getting to know each other one lucky winner will get a copy of both books.
