Release Day Euphoria: Death and the Girl Next Door

at 10/02/2012 10:02:00 PM
yayyyyyy it's the long awaited release day for Darynda Jones' new young adult series, Darklight. The first book, which came out today, is called Death and the Girl Next Door. I received a copy today and I must say the cover looks a lot better in person.


Synposis:
Ten years ago, Lorelei's parents disappeared without a trace. Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home. For Lorelei, life goes on.
High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be. Until the day the school's designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school. Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity. What does Jared know about her parents? Why does Cameron tell Jared he can't have Lorelei? And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real?

Despite that fact that I am bogged down with so much homework from school, I took five minutes out of my day to read the first couple of pages. I loved it. The dialogue is sassy and witty. There's always a zinger somewhere and lots of "Ha!" In honor of this milestone for Darynda's writing career and the launch of a new series, I am giving away one copy of Death and the Girl Next Door. The giveaway starts today and ends on the 22nd of October. So spread the word and let's make this book a bestseller!

Yay! I can comment now. I'm hoping that this book will draw me in and not let me put it down until it's over. I hope it makes me want to read the next book immediately like Darynda's other books. ;)

I'm about 30% thru the book and am loving it. The banter between Glitch, Brooklyn and Lorelia is awesome. DJ has done it again. I can't say what I want to happen because I still trying to figure out what will happen. Does that make sense? lol

Can't wait to read this! I've been telling everyone I can to get their hands on this book. I love it when I can tell someone with confidence that this book will be a hit before even reading it. :)

I hope Lorelie gets together with Cameron (who turns out to be sort of her guardian angel) and Jared knows what happened to Lorelie and can either tell her or point her to where she can find out.
