So you're probably saying, so she's a really cool person, what about her books? Well her books are ones that remind me of a picture I saw on Facebook the other day, that talked about a reader's problem, of missing the characters after you finish a book. I literally was disappointed when her books were over because I wanted to stay in that world, with those characters that felt like people from my own life. I mean part of what I loved is how the characters were sarcastic and funny with each other, the way I am with people in my life. So I am now so excited for her 3rd book, a new series called The Dark World. Here is the blurb about it from Goodreads.com:
Paige Kelly is used to weird--in fact, she probably corners the market on weird, considering that her best friend, Dottie, has been dead since the 1950s. But when a fire demon attacks Paige in detention, she has to admit that things have gotten out of her league. Luckily, the cute new boy in school, Logan Bradley, is a practiced demon slayer-and he isn't fazed by Paige's propensity to chat with the dead. Suddenly, Paige is smack in the middle of a centuries-old battle between warlocks and demons, learning to fight with a magic sword so that she can defend herself. And if she makes one wrong move, she'll be pulled into the Dark World, an alternate version of our world that's overrun by demons-and she might never make it home.
So it sounds really good to me! And I'm sure I'll love the characters just as much! I will have to buy a copy for sure before I go to BEA this coming May, and hopefully I'll get to meet up with her again like I did in 2012 when I went to BEA, and I'll be able to get it signed. Here's a picture of Cara, her friend Nancy who is a fellow book blogger, and me and my sister who now lives in NYC.
So, what are you eagerly waiting on this week?
