We are honored to welcome the fantastic Laini Taylor to the featured author slot this month. Her much-lauded Lips Touch is our October pick! Check out our interview with Laini, book party ideas themed around her book, and our Reach Out project idea--as well as the awesome soundtrack Laini has chosen for the book--on readergirlz.com.
Three tales of supernatural love, each pivoting on a kiss that is no mere kiss, but an action with profound consequences for the kissers' souls.
Goblin Fruit: In Victorian times, goblin men had only to offer young girls sumptuous fruits to tempt them to sell their souls. But what does it take to tempt today's savvy girls?
Spicy Little Curses: A demon and the ambassador to Hell tussle over the soul of a beautiful English girl in India. Matters become complicated when she falls in love and decides to test her curse.
Hatchling: Six days before Esme's fourteenth birthday, her left eye turns from brown to blue. She little suspects what the change heralds, but her small safe life begins to unravel at once.
And the buzz...
