Every once in a while, I'll read a book that will make me stay up super late, despite knowing that I must, must, MUST get up in the morning, and is so amazing that I just have to GUSH about, and not just to like, my mother, but to the WORLD! And so when I'm not getting enough satisfaction gushing on Twitter, these late night, rambling blog posts are born.
So I have to tell you guys, I am in love with a book I promised myself I wouldn't read until later. It's my mother's fault. She picked it up, read it in like, three hours this morning, and then said, "You need to read this NOW!"
That book is The Line by Teri Hall.
I was kinda already flipping out over it in this blog post, but after having read it....oh my word! Such an amazing, powerful, chilling read! It's just as creepy and suspenseful and mysterious as its fabulous cover would suggest. The ending is utter torture (I suspected this. This is why I wanted to wait to read, thus lessening my wait time for the inevitable sequel), and it's just full of twists and secrets and startling revelations and unexpected secrets. It is my new favorite book of 2010...which is weird because 2010 is still four months away.
I know I'm being obnoxiously vague and a complete tease here, so look for my review later this week. But just in case this one wasn't on your radar: wake up, pay attention, The Line is utterly spectacular. Put it on your wishlists, guys! Like, for real!
