Life's a Beach Giveaway Hop


BOOK NERD
Life's a Beach Giveaway Hop


Praise for THE QUEEN'S RISING

★ "Power's evocative, haunting, and occasionally gruesome debut will challenge readers to ignore its bewitching presence." —Booklist, Starred Review

★ "This gritty, lush debut chronicling psychological and environmental tipping points...weaves a chilling narrative that disrupts readers' expectations through an expertly crafted, slow-burn reveal of the deadly consequences of climate change....Part survival thriller, part post-apocalyptic romance, and part ecocritical feminist manifesto, a staggering gut punch of a book." —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“The perfect kind of story for our current era.” —Hypable

“Wilder Girls is so sharp and packs so much emotion in such wise ways. I’m convinced we’re about to witness the emergence of a major new literary star.” —Jeff VanderMeer, author of the New York Times bestseller Annihilation

"The eeriness of Raxter Island permeates every scene, and Rory Power's characters are fierce and honest, blazing from the pages. This is a groundbreaking speculative story—brutal and beautiful, raw and unflinching. I adored this book." —Emily Suvada, author of This Mortal Coil

"Wilder Girls is the bold, imaginative, emotionally wrenching horror novel of my dreams—one that celebrates the resilience of girls and the earthshaking power of their friendships. An eerie, unforgettable triumph." —Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn

"A feminist, LGBT+, sci-fi-horror story with all the tantalizing elements of gore, mystery, war, and love you can ask for. Real, flawed, brave girls against a world gone mad. A shudderingly good read!” —Dawn Kurtagich, author of Teeth in the Mist

It's been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty's life out from under her.

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don't dare wander outside the school's fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there's more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

  2. "Most memorable beach experience?" Tossing a pizza outside my motel window in Galveston because I just couldn't eat that much. (For future reference, if you really must get rid of that pizza tear it up into little pieces and flush it down the toilet.) Then having 1000s of seagulls swooping down from a mile away in the sky, crashing against the building and making deafening squawks for the next 10 minutes as they fought over the pizza. Then the police came and hammered on the door, and I didn't open the door to them because, duh.... And the pizza delivery guy scared the hell out of me when he delivered the pizza because he'd filed down all of his teeth into points like something out of a horror movie. Maybe he was getting them capped, I dunno.

  3. My first beach experience was memorable and unforgettable as this was my first holiday at the ocean. Walking along the shore, sitting at the beach and gazing at the beauty of my surroundings gave me a feeling which I had never had before. I pine for the ocean and look forward to once again having a meaningful vacation at the best place on earth.

  5. I don't think I have a most memorable experience. I live in Los Angeles and although the beach is like twenty minutes away, I can count on one hand the number of times I've been to the beach.

  16. I do not have a memorable beach experience since I have lived the majority of my life within 10 minutes of Lake Erie and have been to beach constantly every summer. The beach was never a special place for me since we went there so often.
