January Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveway

January Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveway.

The giveaway for The Fallout ends at midnight tonight!!  Hurry and Enter!  Find the link below.

It is time to say Goodbye to the coldest January of my entire life.  We had 5 days of school off this month due to extreme cold.  It was crazy cold here in Minnesota.  I traveled to New York City this month and had a blast with a group of teachers from around the United States.  My dog got super sick when I returned and went to the vet four times in 1 week.  He is finally feeling better.

Join me in saying goodbye to January's Author in the Spotlight, S.A. Bodeen.

Please check out my book review of The Compound.  Bodeen has written a thriller that slowly unfolds to reveal a shocking situation in The Compound.  The Compound is a compelling and intriguing page turner.  Once I started reading The Compound I couldn't stop and devoured it in just 2 days.  The Compound is a book that will make you fall in love with its characters and then slowly cause you to question their trustworthiness and question all you know.

The Compound Book Review

Please check out my book review of The Fallout.  The Fallout is a riveting conclusion to The Compound.  The story line begins right where The Compound left off.  The Fallout is the story of a very rich family whose patriarch thinks he can do anything because he has money and is privileged.  The plot is fast moving and full of twists and turns and plenty of What?! and No!?* and OMG!

Please read the author interview with S. A. Bodeen.  I posed a few questions about her Young Adult books, The Compound and The Fallout.  I just found out that we graduated from the same college with the same degree in secondary education.  S.A. Bodeen shares the back story behind her books, tells about how she became a writer, shares information about her new book and more.

S.A. Bodeen Guest Post

It has been my pleasure to work with S.A. Bodeen this month and I would like to thank her for being the January Minnesota Author in the Spotlight.  I met Stephanie at the Twin Cities Book Festival in October and I was interested in all the great young adult books she has written.  I'm looking forward to reading a lot more entertaining books from S.A. Bodeen.  I'm so glad I was able to feature S.A. Bodeen on my BookSnob.  Check out her books at her websites; or
