The Advent Book Blog

"Books on the Radio" host Sean Cranbury and "Book Madam" Julie Wilson came up with a cute idea: an Advent Book Blog for the month of December. They asked a number of authors, myself included, to select a favorite book published in 2009 and write a short, 25-word review. Like an advent calendar, each day sees another mini-review posted to the blog.

It was a tough decision for me. There were a ton of great books published this year, all of which I loved, but in the end I chose Paul Tremblay's The Little Sleep because it was such a fantastic debut novel. That Tremblay kid, he's going places!

You know, looking at the other reviews on the site, it occurs to me that I'm one of the few authors who took the 25-word rule seriously!
