If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

Did I Notice Your Book Blogfest!!!

So, for today's awesome blogfest, sponsored by Ninja Captain Alex Cavenaugh and Ciara Knight I chose a book that I haven't actually read yet, but I'm really looking forward to. I "found" my book when I won it in a contest. 

 Wilde's Fire~Darkness Falls: Book One

The first thing that caught my eye and made me want to immediately look up the book description was the absolutely gorgeous cover!

I hope, someday, I have a cover that is even half this cool. Then I went and read about the book. This synopsis is copy and pasted directly from Goodreads:

"There is no pain in this death, only peace, knowing I am going to die with the one I love the most." - Katriona Wilde. 

Katriona Wilde has never wondered what it would feel like to have everything she's ever known and loved ripped away, but she is about to find out. When she inadvertently leads her sister and best friend through a portal into a world she's dreamed of for six years, she finds herself faced with more than just the frightening creatures in front of her. Kate's forced to accept a new truth: her entire life has been a lie, and those closest to her have betrayed her. What's worse, she has no control over her new future, and it's full of magic and horrors from which nightmares are made. Will Kate discover and learn to control who she really is in time to save the ones she loves, or will all be lost. 

Since I love YA stuff with magic/other worlds, this sounds like the book for me. I'm super-excited to read it. I will be tweeting about the book/author and this blogfest and I'll ask you guys to do the same. I'll be sure to visit your sites and return the favor! 

Special thanks to Alex and Ciara for hosting such an awesome blogfest!
