HAPPY THURSDAY everyone! I just filed up my iPad with TONS of books to read for the summer. Not sure I will manage to get through them all, but I am certainly determined!

Before I get to my Bookanista shout out and contest, check out what the other Bookanista’s have on tap:

Now, on to my Bookanista Shout out for one of the most amazing peeps I know, Gretchen McNeil and POSSESS (be sure to stick around for a fabu giveaway at the end).

I first met Gretchen online. When I discovered that we both lived in Southern California, we decided that dinner was a must. And you know what…we’ve been great friends ever since.

I was thrilled when I got a chance to read POSSESS. Even more thrilled when I finished it. Trust me – this is golden, fresh, and new. But more on that in a minute – For now, just check out the trailer:

Basic Blurb: (from  Goodreads)

Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her mom, by the cute son of a local police sergeant, and by the eerie voices she can suddenly and inexplicably hear.  Unfortunately for Bridget, it turns out the voices are demons – and Bridget has the rare ability to banish them back to whatever hell they came from.

Terrified to tell people about her new power, Bridget confides in a local priest who enlists her help in increasingly dangerous cases of demonic possession.  But just as she is starting to come to terms with her new power, Bridget receives a startling message from one of the demons.  Now Bridget must unlock the secret to the demons’ plan before someone close to her winds up dead – or worse, the human vessel of a demon king

Why I liked it: There are just so many things I loved about this book – the voice, the storyline, the creeptastic scenes. All of it. Gretchen describes herself as a dark and snark writer, and that is so true. The sarcastic tone of the MC is something I think readers will enjoy. And the story – this is something NEW in the marketplace right now. It’s R.L. Stine meets Stephen King…FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC!!!

But don’t take my word for it…decide for yourself. Enter my comment contest and maybe you’ll even win a copy of the arc! That’s right, I’m giving away my arc to one of you (and don’t worry, I’ll be giving away a HB of the book once it actually comes out too)

  1. Sounds like an awesome book. The pitch for it really hooks me. Wish I could write one so good. I’d love to win. I’m a follower.

  2. I have SOOOO been waiting for this ever since Gretchen announced it. I keep hoping to get my stubby little fingers on one of the ARCs that are floating about. August is coming soon, and that means even if I don’t nab one of the ARCs, I can get it in retail (just as good!)

  3. So glad I finally got to see the trailer. The other one didn’t seem to be available in my country. Really looking forward to it.

    Have a great weekend!
