Random News: Swag for Inheritance

Hello Sweeties.

Some of you  may have figured out by now that I am a huge fan of Malinda Lo. While I know not that many people know her books, I love them. Her first two were fantasy books (Ash and Huntress), with the first actually being a re-telling of Cinderella (Ash). Lo is one of the few authors who has strong female characters, main characters who aren’t white, and her books have lesbian and bi characters (who are well written!). Her last book was Adaptation, which was a sci-fi book. Frances and I have both reviewed it here already. However, Adaptation was not a stand alone book, and the sequel comes out in September. Inheritance will be the conclusion of the story, and I know I cannot wait to find out what happens!To celebrate the book being released soon, Malinda Lo is offering swag to go along with pre-orders of the book. When you pre-order the book you can have one of two cool postcards sent to you. However, if you pre-order with Lo’s local bookstore, you get both postcards and a couple other bits, as well as having the book signed. On top of all of this, all pre-orders from people in the USA will be entered into a contest to win all of Malinda Lo’s books, including some short story anthologies (which I really want to get my hands on!). You can find all the specifics on Lo’s blog here.
I will be pre-ordering soon, and look forward to scoring some swag. While I haven’t decided whom I am wondering from yet (it will come down to swag versus having to pay full price and shipping…), I am looking forward to entering the contest. Also for those who have read Adaptation, Lo has created the Bin 42 website. In the story this is a website where the characters read conspiracy stories, stories that might not be as impossible as they first believe!

Hope some of you take advantage of this opportunity, especially while there is plenty of time to read Adaptation now so you are ready for September!

Until next time,


About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
