Favorite Fall Reads + Giveaway: THE YOUNG ELITES

You can go ahead and hate me now because I was lucky enough to read an early incarnation of this book, on the beach, with Marie right beside me, so I got to flail my arms and fangirl at her while I was reading it.

And this is definitely the kind of book that required a lot of fangirling and flailing of arms. This story is sort of like what would happen if Avatar: The Last Airbender met Game of Thrones with more super powers and (slightly less) killing. There are some deep themes hidden by fast action, and my heart broke for three different characters in the first fifty pages (don't worry; my favorite got some revenge going, so it was all good).

This is an amazing book. If you love fantasy, totally pick it up. If you love action and thrillers, pick it up. If you love characters who seem real and also kick ass, pick it up. You know what? Just pick this book up. Trust me.

So, I asked Marie a few questions about fall! Read on to find more and to enter to win a copy of The Young Elites AND all the rest of my favorite fall reads! 

It's a beautiful (or rainy!) fall day--what book do you most want to curl up with and read all day?

Now I am fantasizing about a cozy, rainy autumn day. SIGH. I would snuggle up with Mattimeo (by Brian Jacques). Nothing gives me warm fuzzy joy like a Redwall book.

I love fall thunderstorms, but if I can't listen to one, I turn to music. What are you listening to right now? 

Lullabies, by Yuna. All of her songs are on a frequent cycle in my playlists.

Pumpkin spice latte or warm apple pie?

Warm apple pie!!!!!
