Okay I've got a couple random things to share today.
First up, is that book one of the Mindjack Trilogy, Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn is currently a FREE kindle download. This book has been on my TBR for awhile now and I'm super excited to finally get a copy! I don't know how long it's going to be free so hurry up and get your copy now!!
Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can’t read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can’t be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf’s mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she’s dragged deep into a hidden world of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.
Secondly, author Terry Lynn Johnson revealed the cover of her new middle grade book, Ice Dogs, today and it's a stunner!
Look at it! Gorgeous right? I could stare into that dogs beautiful, blue eyes forever.
Here's a little about the book:
Victoria Secord, a 14-year-old Alaskan dogsled racer loses her way on a routine outing with her dogs. With food gone and temperatures dropping, her survival and that of her dogs and the mysterious boy she meets in the woods, is entirely up to her.
Here's a little note on the cover designer:
Cliff Neilsen, is a book illustrator and graphic artist, best known for his sci-fi and fantasy work. He has created a lot of other book covers I'm sure you'd recognize.
To check out more of Cliff's work you can look at his portfolio HERE.
I really like the cover and story of Ice Dogs -- will definitely look that on up. Great adventure. Love that it is for middle graders. Am always looking for that age group. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I feel like middle grade books don't get as much attention is the book blogosphere, which is a shame! I love middle grade books and am always looking for ones to read.Delete
I really LOVE!!! both of these books. The covers and descriptions. I'm really excited to read this kindle freebie now. It reminds me of The Exceptionals for some reason. That illustrator certainly loves animals. Thanks so much for this. So adding both to my TBR list.ReplyDelete
I'm excited to read them both too! It does sound a little like The Exceptionals doesn't it? The animal illustrations are my favorite =)Delete
Thanks for the tip on Open Minds, it sounds really good! The cover of Ice Dogs is stunning!ReplyDelete
As soon as I saw Open Minds was free I was like I have to share this with everybody!Delete
Just picked up Open Minds, thanks! Also, thank you so much for linking to Cliff's portfolio - I'm a graphic design student and it drives me crazy when I can't find the artist of a beautiful book cover!ReplyDelete
I'm a GD student as well so I understand! =) I love learning about the artist behind a great book cover!!Delete
