Gchat Review: Living Violet by Jaime Reed...AND a CONTEST

Reading Song of the Day: "Violet Hill" by Coldplay

So, I was fortunate enough to win an ARC of Jaime Reed's debut paranormal novel: Living Violet (The Cambion Chronicles # 1). EEEK! Me and Pam were so excited to read this novel, and we must say it did not disappoint! We took turns reading the ARC and finished it in about a week and a half. BOTH of us read this ONE copy in no more than TEN days. That's a testament to how engaging the story was.

Here is what Goodreads has to say:

He's persuasive, charming, and way too mysterious. And for Samara Marshall, her co-worker is everything she wants most--and everything she most fears. . .

Samara Marshall is determined to make the summer before her senior year the best ever. Her plan: enjoy downtime with friends and work to save up cash for her dream car. Summer romance is not on her to-do list, but uncovering the truth about her flirtatious co-worker, Caleb Baker, is. From the peculiar glow to his eyes to the unfortunate events that befall the girls who pine after him, Samara is the only one to sense danger behind his smile.

But Caleb's secrets are drawing Samara into a world where the laws of attraction are a means of survival. And as a sinister power closes in on those she loves, Samara must take a risk that will change her life forever. . .or consume it.

Sounds like good stuff, right? We know!

This time around with the DAC we're doing things a little differently. We have two separate lists, which you can check out here. However, some of the books show up on both our lists. For those books, Pam and I are going to "chat" and then share our discussion about the book with you all--because we know you're just DYING to know what we think.

So, without further adieu here was the chat we had about Reed's Living Violet:

Did you read that, right? YEP! We're giving away a copy of Jaime Reed's debut novel Living Violet. What do you have to do to enter? You MUST be a follower of our blog, a US resident, and leave a comment on this post by MIDNIGHT on Tuesday December 20th, 2011. We will choose one winner at random and pre-order a copy of Living Violet for you. Need something to talk about in the comments??? Well, tell us your favorite baked good. That should be fun!

**DISCLAIMER: We did not have this chat in front of the Statue of Liberty. Instead, we used Gchat. We know, not very glamorous :D The picture is from our trip to NY last year.**

I can't stop laughing at the gchat thing. I'm totally picturing the two of you side by side on the couch doing this.

That sounds like such a good read!

Favorite baked good: Gotta be fresh bread, soft and chewy with a thick crust. And it's so versatile, great for sandwiches or with soup or just toasted with some butter.
