My 1st ARC - Wither

Just last week I received my first ARC in the mail. To say I was excited is a huge understatement. I had just been telling my husband two days earlier how I really, really, really wanted a copy of this book now! It had all started when he asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I said Wither, but it doesn't come out until March.

Two days later my mailman was handing it to my husband along with another package. I was not expecting to get Wither at all. I knew I had entered a contest for it, but I couldn't remember what site I had entered it on or when. I didn't get an email stating that I won, not to my knowledge, so I'm still curious as to it's exact origin. But, I will not look a gift horse in it's mouth!

Immediately I began reading and was glued to it. When I opened the book I told myself, "I hope this book lives up to the hype I've been hearing."

Well, it did and now I can't wait for the second installment in the Chemical Garden Trilogy to be out.

Yes, I have finished it. I started reading last Wednesday and finished yesterday. My 12 month old loves to play with books, so I had to read while he napped. Otherwise, it would have been done in less than two days.

My review will follow on and I'll link it to my blog once I have it up.

It is definitely worth the read. I really enjoyed it. But, enough I say! Wait for my review. :-)


  1. Ahhhhhh! So excited!!!! How very cool that a) it just showed up out of nowhere, and b) that it lived up to your expectations. Can't wait to read it!!

  2. Oh was I surprised! I'm almost positive it was from a contest. However, with the big computer meltdown of 2010 I seem to have lost ALL my bookmarks on the internet. I try to bookmark any contests I enter, but that one seems to have slipped through the cracks or was erased when my system was reformatted. I do remember entering a contest, though. Too bad I can't find an email on it either.

    It was a great read. :-)
