GIVEAWAY! – Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed! Thanks for visiting.

The folks over at Penguin were kind enough to provide me with a copy of Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link and one of my lucky readers gets to win this gorgeous hardcover! Thank you Jillian!

Here is a brief blurb:

“Through the lens of Link’s vivid imagination, nothing is what it seems, and everything deserves a second look. From the multiple award-winning “The Faery Handbag,” in which a teenager’s grandmother carries an entire village (or is it a man-eating dog?) in her handbag, to the near-future of “The Surfer,” whose narrator (a soccer-playing skeptic) waits with a planeload of refugees for the aliens to arrive, Link’s stories are funny and full of unexpected insights and skewed perspectives on the world. Her fans range from Michael Chabon to Peter Buck of R.E.M. to Holly Black of Spiderwick Chronicles fame. Now teens can have their world rocked, too!”

This book is classified as Young Adult but I feel it appeals to both YAs and Adults. To read more about Kelly Link, visit her website by clicking here. Click here to read what Bibliophile Stalker had to say about it. It’s currently a Powells.com Staff Pick.
