First off, the winners of my How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest are: Meredith, Carol, Rebecca and Alison. Thanks everyone for participating. I will be sending emails to winners later today.
This author is a testament to the power of social networking. Because of my connection to her online, I Read, Read her book.
Yes, you heard/read me right. Me, the audiobook addict, does read, read sometimes, though my precious reading time is usually devoted to research for my WIP and the occasional market comparison fiction book.
Nevertheless, I did read this one, and it was well worth the time!
POSSESSION, by Elana Johnson
First off, the voice is amazing. The writing is sparse (which I love). The reader's understanding of this Dystopian world is peeled away like layers of an onion over the course of the book, and you are left wanting..no, needing...to know more.
So, if you haven't read this one yet, do. The audiobook addict herself says it's worth sitting down, putting everything else aside, and read, reading :)
What about you? Read this one yet? Any other debut authors to recommend?
