Blog Tour- Desires of the Dead

We are excited to be apart of Kimberly Derting's Desires of the Dead blog tour. You can read my review for Desires of the Dead here. Today we get to share Violet's Library!

Violet has eclectic taste in reading, but she tends to steer away from the really dark books that I grew up loving, like Stephen King and Thomas Harris (Silence of the Lambs). She prefers things a little…lighter. With a “gift” like hers, can you blame her?

1. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee (okay, maybe this is MY favorite too)

2. Charlotte’s Web by EB White (a childhood favorite!)

3. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

4. I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder

5. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (yes, the entire series)

6. Night by Elie Wiesel

7. Looking for Alaska by John Green

8. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

9. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen


10. Prada & Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard

AND that's not all! Thank you to Kimberly, Harper Teen and The Teen Scene, we are giving away a SIGNED hardcover of Desires of the Dead along with some signed swag (bookmarks, stickers and a bracelet)! To enter, please read the giveaway rules and fill out this form below-

Here's a little bit about the book-

Published by Harper Teen
Released 2/15/2011

The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found.

Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger (quoted from Goodreads)
