As part of the New Year, New Books feature on Fiction_TheNewReality, a book blog run by the lovely Jayne, I'm giving away a copy of AVALON by Mindee Arnett.
But since AVALON releases tomorrow, I want to bring back that post I wrote when Mindee first announced she'd sold AVALON (then titled Finding Eden). I just love this book so much, and it's already garnered Mindee her first starred review from School and Library Journal. (CONGRATS AGAIN, MINDEE!)
Also, I just finished the sequel, and you guys are going to be blown away! I'm constantly in awe of Mindee :)
(Parts of the rest of this post is from a 2012 post, with updated gifs and title!)
OMG GUYS. This book. THIS BOOK. AVALON is legit one of the best YA scifi I have ever read. Ever. I love Jeth to ridiculous proportions. I am not even kidding.
This book is intense and clever and at times deliciously creepy, and I had so many FEELINGS while reading it.
At first I was like:
Ooh, I think I like you.
Then I was like:

And then STUFF REALLY STARTED TO GET DOWN and I was like:
and I had SO MANY FEELINGS
And it was around this point that I realized I srsly LOVE this book:
But I kept alternating between
and by the end, I was completely emotionally exhausted.
BUT IN THE BEST WAY! Because, guys. I love this book.
And tomorrow, you guys get to share in the love.
