Berls @Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @Because Reading are hosting A Month of Giving Thanks. I thought it was a great idea as Thanksgiving is actually my favorite holiday and I'm grateful for so many things. I may not manage a post every day but I wanted to kick off the month right.
I'm grateful for JA Huss having found me. Back in late 2012, JA contacted me to see if I'd be interested in participating in a blog tour for her I Am Just Junco series. Junco was a little out of my comfort zone - not my usual genres - but I wanted to support indie authors, so I agreed. The tour was for the first 3 or 4 - I can't remember now - but I was so captivated by Junco and the world Huss created, that I did a week-long Junco feature - a Fangirling Over JA Huss event! I'm so glad I stepped outside my box and read Junco. She's unique and knows how to kick some ass. The story has great mythology and...well, I could go on and on. Anyway, Junco led to my love affair of all things JA Huss. If y'all have been around here much, you know I'm a bit of a fangirl. ;) Huss is my most-reviewed author. I've read EVERY.SINGLE.ONE of her books. And they're all fantastic! And this year, I FINALLY got to meet her. Yes, I had to go out-of-state to do it, despite the fact that we live about an hour and a half from one other. But I did it. And meeting her was...well, I was so nervous and starry-eyed. She's one cool bitch! <-- she doesn't mind me saying that. Love ya, JA!!
If you haven't read a Huss book, snap to it. Here's a link to her Goodreads page. You're welcome! :)
I'm thankful JA Huss contacted you as well, Brandee, because thanks to you I'm now totally hooked on her writing. She is so good at writing flawed characters, and their development over the course of their stories is always amazing!ReplyDelete
I hope you're having a great weekend, my dear. This past week sure flew by. *BIG HUGS*
Sounds like you found JA Huss just like I found Marie Hall! I'm still working through all of Marie's books though. So glad you introduced me to JA Huss - definitely already love her!ReplyDelete
ahh I bought a couple of books of hers through the year or so but have not had a chance to read them >.< but you and so many others rave about her writing all the time I am kicking myself for it. Well, Jan and Feb will be my months where I can read whatever I want so I shall get to them!ReplyDelete
Yay! I hope you love her just as much as I do, Lily! She really is a talented writer. :) I can't wait to see what you you!ReplyDelete
Yep - and that's a great thing because I got to introduce you to JA and you introduced me to Marie! Win-win! I'm glad you're loving Huss. Let me know when you're ready for the next in Social Media. :)ReplyDelete
It's my pleasure to share my fav author with you, Lexxie - just as you've done with me. That's the beauty of book blogging, no? Huss is amazing with *real* characters and writing stories that keep me guessing throughout. Love them! ;) Yes, the week sure did fly by...as did the weekend. It's Monday again! We have next week off for the Thanksgiving holiday and we're looking forward to it. Happy Monday!! **BIG HUGS**ReplyDelete
I am thankful for JA Huss too! She is just awesome! I need to read the Junco series ... soon!ReplyDelete
