Ah Rhode Island, the little state that could. First to ratify the constitution and first in all our hearts, right? I went to school in Providence, Rhode Island and those four years were the best of my life so I am so happy to represent our smallest state of the Union in the Reading Road Trip Tour. IN FACT, I was just up in Newport, Rhode Island for the weekend doing some recon (or relaxing, whatever). Anyway the road trip allows us to give away a book that either takes place in the state OR by an author who is from the state SO I’ve chosen to giveaway INFINITE DAYS by Rebecca Maizel.
Rebecca is from our lovely little state of Rhode Island. She graduated from Boston University and Rhode Island College Master’s program. She teaches community college in Rhode Island and is currently studying to receive her MFA from Vermont College. Her hotly anticipated sequel to Infinite Days, Stolen Nights is due out this fall.
My Original Review of INFINITE DAYS from way back when:
This book was an addiction for me. I skipped meals, holing myself up with this book until I was done. Then, I read it again. I don’t know what I loved more the originiality of the plot, the ernestness of the characters or the thrill of danger lurking at the door. While romantic and paranormal, Maizel’s debut shines most for her heroine’s compelling desire to be human in every sense of the word. It is this heart-breaking, fragile humanity that may be her saving grace.
I can only compare this first book to how I felt when I read Twilight and the first Harry Potter. Maizel has the brillian gift of creating characters you don’t just love despite their flaws, but characters whose story you NEED to hear creating a compulsion to listen and experience that story for yourself.
There is no doubt that I am buying a copy of this book for myself and copies to give to all my friends.
