Yallfest Interviews Scott Westerfeld and Marie Lu / Huge signed box of books #Giveaway #International

Interview with Scott Westerfeld at Yallfest


1) What Inspired the Uglies series? (it is such a girl driven series)
A friend from New York moved to LA and went to the dentist. The dentist said they needed new teeth and gave a 5 year plan. Saying where were his teeth going to be in 5 years. That got me thinking about plastic surgery and the aspect of trying to make someone perfect.
2) Do you like writing in one specific genre or do you like mixing it up since most of your books have a wide range?
I like doing different things. If I were to write the same thing I would get bored.
3) I know you did Power Puff Girls book for Middle Grade, so are you planning to do any more middle grade books?
Yes, I have a project I am working on right now but details are still under wraps.
4) What is your next up and coming project? 
I have a superhero Young Adult project but that is all I can say since the rest is still under wraps.
5) You said you are working with another Author on an upcoming book so, do you pre…

The Bitter Kingdom (Fire and Thorns #3) by Rae Carson ~ Review by Fallon

Image
5 Out of 5 Stars
Author Description:
The champion must not waver.
The champion must not fear.
The gate of darkness closes.
Elisa is a fugitive.

Her enemies have stolen the man she loves, and they await her at the gate of darkness. Her country is on the brink of civil war, with her own soldiers ordered to kill her on sight.

Her Royal Majesty, Queen Lucero-Elisa né Riqueza de Vega, bearer of the Godstone, will lead her three loyal companions deep into the enemy's kingdom, a land of ice and snow and brutal magic, to rescue Hector and win back her throne. Her power grows with every step, and the shocking secrets she will uncover on this, her final journey, could change the course of history.

But that is not all. She has a larger destiny. She must become the champion the world has been waiting for.

Even of those who hate her most.
Fallon's Review:
In a war that has gone on for so long, can one person change the hatred built up over centuries? Hector has been captured and Elisa will ri…

The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns #2) by Rae Carson ~ Review by Fallon

Image
5 Out of 5 Stars
Author Description:
She does not know what awaits her at the enemy's gate.

Elisa is a hero.

She led her people to victory over a terrifying, sorcerous army. Her place as the country's ruler should be secure. But it isn't.

Her enemies come at her like ghosts in a dream, from foreign realms and even from within her own court. And her destiny as the chosen one has not yet been fulfilled.

To conquer the power she bears, once and for all, Elisa must follow a trial of long-forgotten—and forbidden—clues, from the deep, hidden catacombs of her own city to the treacherous seas. With her go a one-eyed spy, a traitor, and the man whom—despite everything—she is falling in love with.

If she's lucky, she will return from this journey. But there will be a cost.
Fallon's Review:
I am so happy I picked up The Crown of Embers after a blogger friend told me you have to finish this series. I could not put it down. I felt like Elisa's story was done and she had lost …

Her Dark Curiosity (The Madman's Daughter #2) by Megan Shepherd ~ Review by Fallon

Image
5 Out of 5 Stars
Author Description:
To defeat the darkness, she must first embrace it.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau returned to civilization after escaping her father's island—and the secrets she left behind. Now, back in London once more, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau’s horrific legacy—though someone, or something, hasn’t forgotten her.

As people close to Juliet fall victim one by one to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father’s creations may have also escaped the island. She is determined to find the killer before Scotland Yard does, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again.

As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in the midst of a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in …

A member of the lowest rung of society, she must serve the ship’s Officials and Astronauts as punishment for her grandparents’ crimes back on Earth.

Throwback Thursday with The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns #1) by Rae Carson ~ Review by Fallon

Fallon's Review: 
Rae Carson weaved an original and inspirational story of a girl who was born to rule. The only problem is she never felt her own worth. Through circumstance and self discovery Elisa becomes a savior to many. I was so in love with this story, but at the end I felt I was not as invested in the story as I wanted to be to continue. If you feel like me I have to say continue because you are wrong.

Author Description:
Murder, abductions, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson's acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.
Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion's people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy -- before it's too late?
Fallon's Review:
Thank you Scholastic for an ARC of Ignite for a fair and honest review.
Ignite starts off right where defy left off. Alexa is still remaining by Damian even though every day feels like torture. Longing for him but knowing he deserves a girl fit to be his Queen. Damian is confused…
