LIAR Release Day and Giveaway

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.

    I may end up buying this book before the contest is over. I’m that impatient for good reads! 😀

  2. *bats eyelashes* Plz to give me Liar?

    Not the person, I’ve already too many liars, lol. I’ve been following the story about the American cover art since Justine Larbalestier spoke out about it, and have checked the bookshelves and catalog of my local bookstores every time I visit. I so want to read this!

    I came here from John Scazi’s Whatever blog, and would love to have this book. I’ve been looking forward to this since Justine first spoke out about the former coverart.

    Not only will I read it, but it will go to others with teenage & pre-teen daughters to read, as well.

    You know what I like about that cover? How it turned out so great in spite of the fact that they had to throw it together in a couple of days. Kind of like writing an A+ paper the night before it’s due.
