Interview : Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead is one of my favourite authors since I’m in love with Succubus series and of course Vampire Academy series.

I was lucky to ask her some questions in Summer 2009. Here is the retranscription.


What I’m waiting for : Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting

Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting (The Body Finder #2)

Harper Collins

Violet can sense the echoes of those who’ve been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she’d turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike’s tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.

I love The Body Finder, especially the very cute relationship between Jay and Violet. I hope the sequel will be as entertaining as the first novel. Some people have already ARC, I’m so jealous!

Review : Awaken, Katie Kacvinsky

Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt


Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Whether it’s to go to school or on a date, people don’t venture out of their home. There’s really no need. For the most part, Maddie’s okay with the solitary, digital life—until she meets Justin. Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her.

Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking.

In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.

Interview : Jennifer Rardin

Jennifer Rardin was the author of Jaz Parks series. She passed away on September 20th, 2010 and it’s a huge loss for all her fans.

When her first book was released in France in fall 2008, I was lucky to be able to interview her. Here is the retranscription.
