I want to introduce you all to our new Friday feature: Truth or Dare: The Weekly Confessions of a Hopeless Bibiophile, a.k.a Truth or Dare Fridays! This meme is hosted by Jenna at Jenna Does Books. You can find her website here. Make sure that you head on over to Jenna’s website to link up your own Truth or Dare post and to see what everyone chose to do this week!
This week’s choices:
Truth: If you had only 24 hours left to live, what book would you read and why?
Dare: Go to a bookstore and take photos of THREE books on the shelves-tell us about them!
I have to admit, I’m much too lazy to go do the dare at this moment, so I will be doing Truth!
First of all, I can’t read a book in 24 hours. I mean, I can FINISH a book in like 7-10 hours but that’s usually spaced out between 2-4 days…sometimes longer. If I’m forced to read a book in a day, though, I get really agitated and fidgety. I just can’t handle it. HOWEVER, if I was allowed to read one book…just one……I want to say Harry Potter, but I won’t. Why? Because I can’t read all 7 books in 24 hours so what’s the point? I’m going to have to say Dark Star by Bethany Frenette. I LOVED that book so much. I might even be able to read both Dark Star and Burn Bright in a whole 24 hours.
So, yes, that’s my choice! Dark Star by Bethany Frenette.
Take a look below!
Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear. Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime-fighter in the Twin Cities, so it’s hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she’s lured into the sweet night air by something human and not human–something with talons and teeth, and a wide, scarlet smile.
Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn’t fight crime at night. She fights Harrowers–livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape. And they want Audrey dead, just because of who she is: one of the Kin.
To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person’s memories become her own, and she sometimes even glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get close to Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers’ next move. But Leon, her mother’s bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won’t let Audrey out of his sight.
When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her herself, her family, and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything–and everyone–she loves.
