Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard Book Blitz #Giveaway

I love this series with all my heart. Make sure to check out the blitz details and enter the giveaway at the bottom.

Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly #3)
by Susan Dennard 
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: July 22nd

In the conclusion to the trilogy that Publishers Weekly called “a roaring—and addictive—gothic world,” Eleanor Fitt must control her growing power, face her feelings for Daniel, and confront the evil necromancer Marcus...all before it’s too late.

He took her brother, he took her mother, and now, Marcus has taken her good friend Jie. With more determination than ever to bring this sinister man to justice, Eleanor heads to the hot desert streets of nineteenth-century Egypt in hopes of ending this nightmare. But in addition to her increasingly tense relationships with Daniel, Joseph, and her demon, Oliver, Eleanor must also deal with her former friend, Allison, who has curiously entangled herself in Eleanor’s mission.

With the rising dead chomping at her every move and Jie’s life hanging in the balance, Eleanor is convinced that her black magic will see her through to the bitter end. But there will be a price. Though she and the Spirit Hunters have weathered every battle thus far, there will be consequences to suffer this time—the effects of which will be irreversible. And when it’s over, only some will be able to live a strange and ever after.

Susan Dennard will leave readers breathless and forever changed in the concluding pages of this riveting ride

Make Sure to Check Out This Extra Scene from A Darkness Strange and Lovely from Daniel's POV. Make sure you have read the second book though because it is a spoiler!!

There is also some awesome extra content at Epic Reads


I am a writer, reader, lover of animals, and eater of cookies. I used to be a marine biologist, but now I write novels. And not novels about fish either, but novels about kick-butt heroines and swoon-worthy rogues (I really like swoon-worthy rogues).

I live in the Midwest with my husband and two dogs (Asimov and Princess Leia), and you can learn more about my crazy thoughts and crippling cookie-addiction on my blog or twitter.

My debut, SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY is now available from HarperTeen along with the prequel, A DAWN MOST WICKED, and the sequel A DARKNESS STRANGE & LOVELY.

Look for STRANGE & EVER AFTER in summer 2014 and TRUTHWITCH in fall 2015!

Note: I am on Goodreads to READ. So, if you want to discuss books and the joys of literature, add me as a friend


Sunday Post: Book Haul

Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

So another busy weekend for me. Even though I work 4 10hr days there seems to be no rest on my 3 days off. Mostly because I have to entertain my crazy children. I did go a couple of my favorite places. One is Cantigny Park. It has extensive gardens and a couple of Museums. One is a Mansion the other is a war museum. It was the summer house of the Chicago man who started the Tribune and WGN. Here are some of the pretties you see in the gardens.

Honestly the grounds are a writers dream. I used to go there when I was younger and fill journals with stories and ideas.

I also went to one of my other favorite places the Morton Arboretum. One of the things my kids love there is the hedge maze. Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.

They also have extensive grounds. I mean it takes a half an hour to an hour just to do the driving tour. It's a cool place and so relaxing. They also have lots of fun events.

Next weekend I will be off the grid because I will be at 
music fest. So I have a lot of reading I need to get done during the week since I won't be reading on the weekend. Luckily this year we have 3 day bracelets which means we can go in and out. One year I think I almost sweat to death. Chicago has pretty unpredictable weather but it looks like it's be in the low 80s. Phew.

I also was messing with the graphic that I have no idea what I'm going to do with it more. That's a long sentence but really I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I've changed it about 15 times and the only reason the trees and fence are in it, is because I was getting frustrated. lol This is definitely not the final version yet.
Well enough of my crazy adventures. The blog has been slower because I've been so busy but here is what you might have missed last week.


One day left to enter the This Summer Giveaway

Just a couple books. 

Have a Fun Rest of the Weekend!!

Four Houses by Victoria Scott Release Day!!! #Giveaway #VMafia @victoriascottya


A frightened girl.

An empty field.

Four houses.

Which house would you choose?

FOUR HOUSES is a dark short story told in an unusual format that leaves readers wondering how they'd react if found in the same situation as seventeen-year-old Maddy.
