Libba Bray Interview Video

LIBBA BRAY is the author of A GREAT AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY and her upcoming book, GOING BOVINE (which I am anxiously awaiting). This is a hilarious video that will hopefully get you as excited for GOING BOVINE as I am!

Amazon Product Description of A GREAT AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY:

It’s 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma’s reception there is a chilly one. To make things worse, she’s been followed by a mysterious young Indian man, a man sent to watch her. But why? What is her destiny? And what will her entanglement with Spence’s most powerful girls—and their foray into the spiritual world—lead to?

If you have not read these books yet, it is imperitve that you do so immediately. They are captivating, magical, suspensful, and romantic. They are PHENOMONAL.

Random House 'About this Book'... GOING BOVINE:

Can Cameron find what he’s looking for?

All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school—and life in general—with a minimum of effort. It’s not a lot to ask. But that’s before he’s given some bad news: he’s sick and he’s going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure—if he’s willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most.

  3. I love the cow suit!

    I enjoyed the Gemma Doyle books. For some strange reason I thought she had more series...I must be thinking of someone else.
