We got beautiful Sinner for our birthday! We also got some money from our sister so we bought 6 kindle books! We got Froi of the Exiles, Illusive, Cress, Lola and the Boy Next Door, Isla and the Happily Ever After, and The Girl with All the Gifts

artificialstateofmind asked:

i was re-reading your shiver books last week and, noticing more than 13 year old me did when i first read the books, i was wondering if you wrote Isabel to have a particular faith/religion? also can i just say, i fell in love with the characters all over again and realised why i was so obsessed with the books in highschool, so thankyou. (I havent had the chance to buy sinner yet but im super keen to read it) Also apologies for following and unfollowing you to no end, mobile version is a bitch


2. You’re welcome.

3. It’s all right. Also, the more correct and gender-neutral term for the mobile version is asshole.

This weekend, I was toying around with Photoshop, sacrificed 20% of my eyesight to the gods Ghibli, and there was this GIF of my creation. And since in 55 short days, BEWARE THE WILD will arrive in the world, I figure this means it’s time for a GIFaway!

(I’m sorry).

(I’m not sorry). 

However, there’s a catch. I only have one remaining ARC, and I’m afraid to say it’s not in great shape as it’s been defaced by maggie-stiefvater and a silver sharpie.

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m including a picture so you can judge for yourself.

Want it? All you need to do is reblog this post or post the GIF above plus some version of….

"Southern Gothic gets a whole new twist in Natalie C. Parker’s debut novel. Beware the Wild is a riveting and atmospheric page-turner readers won’t want to miss! Pre-order your copy now!”

….sometime in the next 24 hours and you’re entered. US only, please. Only one re/blog counts and “likes” do not count. Use #Beware the Wild Contest.

BONUS, I have something else to throw into the pot. No, it’s not another GIF.

(I regret I have but one GIF to GIF!)

(……still not sorry).

To keep with this theme of beasts on wheels (which, oddly enough, refer to the doodles AND Maggie), I’m also including this doodled upon UK ARC of SINNER.   

I’ll post the winner on Tuesday, August 26th at 1pm CST

Good luck!
