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...

I have yet to manage to read a single Christmas book. I swear I'm going to get to one eventually! I had planned to read one this week, but I'm participating in the "End of the World" giveaway. Because of that, I was going through some old books, looking for one I loved enough to want to give it to someone else. (The point of the giveaway.)

I came across a very-battered old favorite--Twilight Eyes-- and was instantly sucked into chapter one.  So, guess what I'm reading this week? haha This is one of Dean Koontz's older books that's quite a bit darker than a lot of his stuff. But  the concept/setting are both awesome. I am totally addicted to YA and I kind of chuckled when I realized that the MC, Slim, is only seventeen. Over the last couple years I've realized all of my favorites before the actual genre of YA became recognized were ALL about teens.

Anyway, here is my teaser:

I told myself that my ability to see through the goblin's human disguises was an unquestionable as my other psychic talents. I knew my other powers were real and reliable, for numerous people had benefited from my clairvoyance and had been astonished by it.  And, damn it, I could see goblins too, and the fact that I was the only was who saw them was no reason to distrust my vision. 

So, that's it for this week. Please click HERE to check out my End of the World Giveaway and win a couple cool  books!! You don't have to do anything to enter but leave a comment on the giveaway post. Merry Christmas guys!!

  2. Oh man, that's an oldie but goodie! I think I read Twilight Eyes, when I WAS a teen. (A long, long, time ago, LOL) But I still love and read Dean Koontz. And lots and lots of YA.
