Dying…dying…dying. I cannot wait for this book! Even though I have the Aussie version already. I need this. I want this. I’ve got to have this. Obsessed? No, my dears. I’ve gone past obsession. No joke. And to think that this might be the last book I would get to read from the goddess herself – I just…I feel a pinching in my chest that has nothing to do with the pizza I ate for supper. Whelp. Anyway, enough about me. 
Jesus. This is supposed to be a cover reveal; not a freaking review. I’m going to stop right here. I’ve said a lot more but had to cut most of it out. Seriously. Somewhere in Australia, Ms. Marchetta is planning to hire a personal bodyguard for fear of stalkers like me. It’s okay. I’m way too far from you, M. Canada is like…thousands and thousands of miles away. I just. I just want to breathe the same air of your brilliance. Oh God. I’m doing it again. Shut up, already. 
  • Hahaha Joy! You are too funny! I'm glad I'm not the only who feels this way about MM 🙂

  • I was just wondering if she was going to write anything else! She's really busy with TV and movies it seems, *sobs*! I'm so looking forward to this as well, Joy. My copy (my precious!) is on it's way from Australia as we speak. Thanks for letting us participate in the reveal. 🙂

  • Heh. What are we to do? How long will her break be? Did she say? OMGOMGOMGOMG what if she decides she'd rather be a surgeon? or an acrobat? or a…OMGOMOGMOGM I'm freaking out. What if we never get to read another book by her???? God. Someone hold me.

  • She's taking a hiatus from writing novels. And yeah, travesty, indeed. I don't know what I'll do…*goes fetal*

  • LOL I love how much you love this series and the author. I think the book cover is great and matches the others perfect.

    Is Marchetta not writing anymore books? I hope that's not the case because that would be a travesty. Looking forward to catching up in this series. 🙂

  • Joy, you are hilarious! XD Maybe it's because I'm a hardcore Melina Marchetta fan too, but I completely understand where you're coming from. 😀 lol
