DANGEROUS by Shannon Hale, Cover Reveal, Excerpt & Giveaway

Happy Monday! I am beyond excited to teaming up with Bloomsbury to reveal Shannon Hale's upcoming YA release, DANGEROUS (coming April 2014). 

Check out this cover!

Being a huge Shannon Hale fan, I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am over this book.  If you're attending BEA this week, you'll find out plenty more about Dangerous from Bloomsbury!! 

"One of the best books I've ever read. Ever." --James Dashner, NY Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner.

The warehouse was coffin dark. I put out a hand, feeling my way up the stairs.
        I knew I wasn't alone.
        I strained to hear movement. A scuffed foot, the rustle of clothing. The clink of ammunition. Anything.
        There was nothing. Just the sound of my own labored breathing.
        If I had known all that would happen these past months, would I still have entered that stupid sweepstakes?
        No, I thought. Never.
        But my hand pressed against the tokens in my chest, protective.
        I climbed faster.
        Our team was shattered. Two of us left. Only one would walk away from this encounter. But I didn't want to kill again. And I didn't want to die.

Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit, see something new. She never intended to fall in love. And she never imagined stumbling into a frightening plot that kills her friends and just might kill her, too. A plot that is already changing life on Earth as we know it. There's no going back. She is the only thing standing between danger and annihilation.

From NY Times bestselling author Shannon Hale comes a novel that asks, How far would you go to save the ones you love? And how far would you go to save everyone else?

Mundane Monday #186: Jace & Clary

Happy Mundane Monday!

This image was one that Cassie shared last week, and it's one I love of Jace & Clary. The artist and their artwork can be found here.

He ran his hand through a curl of her hair. "I'm happy now, Clary. Doesn't that make a difference?"

"I thought we were happy together," Clary said.

"I've always been happy with you," he said. "But I never thought I deserved it."

"And now you do?"

"And now that's feeling's gone," he said. "All I know is that I love you. And for the first time, that's good enough." 

She closed her eyes. A moment later he was kissing her again, very softly this time, his mouth tracing the shape of hers. She felt herself go pliant under his hands. She sensed it as his breathing quickened and her own pulse jumped. His hand stroked down through her hair, over her back, to her waist. His touch was comforting-the feel of his heartbeat against hers like familiar music-and if they the key was slightly different, with her eyes closed, she couldn't tell. Their was the same, under the skin, she though, as the Seelie Queen had had said; her heart raced when his did, had nearly stopped when his had. If she had to do it all again, she thought, under the pitiless gaze of Raziel, she would have done the same thing.

This time he drew back, letting his fingers linger on her cheek, her lips. "I want what you want," he said. "Whenever you want it."
