Have you read TRUTH OR DARE or SECRETS AND LIES yet? If not, then you’re missing out on two crazy addictive stories! Many thanks to PLL Trendsetter Bre for pulling together these two looks for Tim and Sydney!

We can’t stop thinking about Anya incredible Allyn’s DOLLHOUSE, so we asked our Trendsetters to share their favorite sci-fi/dark romance stories. If you like their recommendations, then you should definitely check out DOLLHOUSE!
PLL Trendsetter Julianna’s four favorite sci-fi/dark romance stories:
  • Sherlock (The BBC TV Show)- Hey, it counts, right? The dark intrigue and forensics aspect of it draw the viewer in with their suspense and cleverness. I think, though, that Sherlock is really my favorite because I love how nutty and insane and scary and absolutely positively thrilling the show is.
  • Insignia Trilogy by S. J. Kincaid- Oh man—this series is just so freaking cool. The gadgets; the technology; the exploitation of technology—all perfectly handled. I think what I love so much about it is just how it shows us science is a double-edged sword, and terror doesn’t have to involve violence. It challenged the way I viewed the world, and I’m sure that at the very least it will provide seamless entertainment for all those who read it. Read my review of Insiginia!
  • Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma- This one is a book of dark romance, not scifi, and it’s full of material that can be quite hard to swallow. But I love it because it’s written so well, and it makes you think so hard about things that seemed so clearly defined before. It’s challenging; it’s powerful; it’s raw.
  • Annnd the inevitable… Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I know I’ll get a lot of flame for this one, because why didn’t I pick another sci-fi classic in the vein of H.G. Wells? Maybe The Island of Dr. Moreau? Or another sci-fi classic, like The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? And then of course there’s Brave New World, and for the more Dystopian-oriented fans, 1984 and Fahrenheit 451. But I love Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus the most because it’s the very beginning of sci-fi. The fact that Mary Shelley was a 19-year-old haunted soul who dreamt up this horrifying masterpiece makes me give her mad props. I love the questions this book asks, and I love how unflinchingly honest and bitter and desperate it is.

Day Twenty-Nine :: Freebie

For my freebie I’m focusing on the importance of presentation! This is an ARC of Starling by Fiona Paul, but having seen the first two books in the series in their finished copy state, I can say that they are presented the same way (with the exception of the cover change between books one and two, which I am still lamenting over). Starling has a gorgeous title page, with that fleur de lis trademark that’s repeated throughout the book. You can find it behind each of the rather creepy quotes preceding each chapter, beneath the chapter number, and along the center on each of the non-new chapter pages. And - if I remember correctly - the finished copies also have deckled edges! Three cheers for amazing presentation!
