???? Anybody care to explain?

Going Bovine   OK,......... I love Libba Bray, but what?  It sounds comical which kind of intrigues me, cuz AGATB was just not.... Hm... I have to say I am definitely going to read this.

Re: ???? Anybody care to explain?

I know right?  I mean Libba Bray is a comic genius but you would never know it cuz it doesn't reflect in her writing.  Have you ever read her blog?  It's flippin hysterical.  I bet this will be good though... simply cuz it's Libba Bray.  Lol.

Re: ???? Anybody care to explain?

Lol.  Ya exactly.  Know what's soooo wierd?  I just discovered that both Libba Bray and Scott Westerfeld are coming out with new books (in Scott's case a new trilogy) and I haven't even heard about it!  I totally flipped and squealed like a maniac.

I was looking at the Coming Soon category on here and I saw Scott's name pop up and I was like OH!  Check out the other thread that I just made that goes "OMG OMG OMG"  There's kind of a brief descript of what the books are about.  They sound totally amazing.

When Kyleigh said "Vamp summed it up" she meant (I think) that I summed up how great the series is because my pen name is Vampires-and-Spongebob, so yeah...

Re: ???? Anybody care to explain?

It’s 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma’s reception there is a chilly one. To make things worse, she’s been followed by a mysterious young Indian man, a man sent to watch her. But why? What is her destiny? And what will her entanglement with Spence’s most powerful girls—and their foray into the spiritual world—lead to?

 

It's a grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat book! The title is A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray.

Re: ???? Anybody care to explain?

Sorry for the confusion.  I just tend to refere to Vampires-and- Spongebob as Vamp. Lol. 

 

You soooo cut and pasted that description didn't you?  *points figure accusingly*  But ya they are great books.  The plot takes a bit to work up but just stick with it and you'll be rewarded.  Lol.

So what if I cut and pasted?! It's not like I stole the Crabby Patties from Mr. Crabs!
