Today is a very special day. LIAR is out in the U.S.A.!
This new novel by Justine Larbalestier is fantastic, mind-blowing, one-of-a-kind. You need to go and read it NOW. TODAY. Starred reviews all over the place, a ton of buzz, and reviews I will not post or link to because of fear of spoilers.
LIAR is a crime novel. It’s about a compulsive liar. It’s amazing. I’ve loved it ever since reading the original manuscript over a year ago.
And that’s why I’m giving away a copy right here on the blog, today! Leave a comment to enter. Contest runs through Sunday, October 4th.
Also (and completely unrelated), read a Dr. Seuss-style reaction to slush piles by Jim C. Hines.
And on the other end of the spectrum, an interesting article about “the one that got away” — the books that were NOT bought by editors and went on to become quite famous.
