There's A Book


In celebration of all things Book Blogger Appreciation Week I thought I’d host a giveaway that shares quite possibly the single greatest book discovery from the last year.

Thanks to numerous reviews and a wonderful suggestion from a great gal at Candlewick Press I was given the opportunity to review the Audiobook version of the first in the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go. All I can say is that it completely blew me away! Not only was the writing unbelievably good, but the narration was to amazing to put into words. This quickly became my favorite audiobook ever and definitely my favorite series ever. I loved it so much I even had the opportunity to interview the narrator, Nick Podehl!

Now, because I’m partial to the audio version(that’s not to say the print isn’t good, because it is and I have it as well!) I’m giving away an Mp3 Audiobook copy of The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. The great thing about this is that because there’s no mailing required I can make it open to anyone, Worldwide! Be prepared though, once you’ve listened to the first one you will be compelled to listen to the remaining books in the series, The Ask and the Answer and Monsters of Men. If you still aren’t convinced to try the audiobook after my review and interview with Nick Podehl than take a look at this fantastic book trailer I found thanks to Patrick Ness’ site. Thanks!

Also, as a reminder to fans of Ness’ writing or those new to him, remember that his new book A Monster Calls comes out this month in the US on September 27th from Candlewick Press and it’s one you don’t want to miss!

  1. I read this, and loved it, but I think it would make a fabulous audio book so I am interested in hearing it. The trailer is very cool, although I think of Todd as cuter…
