A Bookanista Boo-yah for Cryer's Cross with a giveaway!

HAPPY THURSDAY everyone! I hope you are all enjoying a fab summer!

On to my Bookanista Shout out for Lisa McMann's CRYER'S CROSS (be sure to stick around for a fabu giveaway at the end).

Release Date: Feb 8, 2011

Basic Blurb: (from Amazon)
Kendall loves her life in small town Cryer¹s Cross, Montana, but she also longs for something more. She knows the chances of going to school in New York are small, but she's not the type to give up easily. Even though it will mean leaving Nico, the world's sweetest boyfriend, behind.

But when Cryer's Cross is rocked by unspeakable tragedy, Kendall shoves her dreams aside and focuses on just one goal: help find her missing friends. Even if it means spending time with the one boy she shouldn't get close to... the one
boy who makes her question everything she feels for Nico.

Determined to help and to stay true to the boy she's always loved, Kendall keeps up the search--and stumbles upon some frightening local history. She knows she can't stop digging, but Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried....
Why I liked it: Let me start by just saying that I enjoy Lisa's books. This one was no different. It has a great creepy feel, a wonderful portrayal of a character with OCD, and a fabulous end. I breezed through the book in a couple of days and felt quite satisfied with the end. Another great book for Lisa McMann.

What are you reading these days?


  1. Oh, I've read this one and it was delightfully creepy!

    I just finished Holly Black's White Cat, and it was good. I'm already making grabby hands at Red Glove. :)

  2. Ohhh, a mystery and a romance. Sounds fab, Christine. And a giveaway? Awesome!

  3. This book has been in my to be read pile for far too long. I think I better move it up the list.


Thanks for your input!
