This unique and lovely meme was created by Karin over at Karin's Book Nook blog and here is a little synopsis of what it is all about.
"Say It Again” Saturday was created because…Sometimes when I’m reading a book there are lines that just jump out at me. They make me want to laugh, cry, or just sit and think for a minute. Sometimes the lines are just beautifully written. They are the kind of lines that you want to stop reading, find someone close by, and read the line or passage aloud to them so they can share it with you.

Sliding on the Edge by C. Lee McKenzie

"Something's wrong."

"It’s not a heart-grabbing noise like when somebody jiggles the doorknob to see if it’s locked. It’s not a bitter smell like the electrical short we had last month, when all the breakers popped. No. It’s something in the air, something like a ghost making its way through the room. And it can’t be Monster, not after last night."

Wow! just reading that again gives me goosebumps. I had the pleasure of meeting C. Lee last thursday night at the Debutante Ball held by Not Your Mother's Book Club at Book's Inc. All the debs talked about themselves and their novels but when C. Lee stood up and talked about her book I was mesmerized, transfixed... When she read the passage I just posted. I got goose bumps. I knew I had to have this book. I was not the only one, another deb author Malinda Lo of Ash, was also in the audience and she echoed my amazement over C. Lee's presence and her book.


At the moment her book is a bit difficult to come by....So, you can order it by clicking on the book cover picture. Or you can go to WestSide Books and order it HERE ...or even better you can contact your local book store and ask to have it stocked there, it's easy, just ask if they have it (make sure you write the name and book title down) and if they do have it then great. If they don't then ask them to order some copies :)

Wonderful, Diva. Enough to peek my interest. I'll be going to Borders Wednesday; I'll check on Sliding on the Edge. Lucky you to be meeting all these authors! Guess who? :)

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
