Upfront, I want to say thank you for the support many of you have shown TAKEN so far. We’re less than a month to pub now, and all the tweets, blog comments, early reviews, and general levels of enthusiasm have been so, so amazing. You guys all rock.
That said, I realize there are a lot of you looking forward to TAKEN who haven’t been able to snag an ARC and read early. Well, today is your lucky day. Actually, Monday will be. Let me explain…
As just announced on the Pitch Dark site, HarperTeen has decided to give you a sneak peek inside the novel! Starting on Monday, and continuing throughout the week, a team of awesome bloggers will be revealing the first eight chapters of TAKEN!
Monday, 3/25 – Chapter 1
Wendy Darling @ The Midnight Garden
Tuesday, 3/26 – Chapter 2
Lena Ainsworth @ Addicted 2 Novels
Wednesday, 3/27 – Chapter 3
Erica Haglund @ The Bookcellar
Thursday, 3/28 – Chapter 4
Shane Morgan @ Itching for Books
Friday, 3/29 – Chapter 5
Stephanie Ward @ A Dream Within A Dream
Saturday, 3/30 – Chapter 6
Krystal Larson @ Live to Read
Sunday, 3/31 – Chapter 7
Alicia Guerrero @ Shooting Stars Mag
Monday, 4/1 – Chapter 8
Jessica Estep @ Total Bookaholic
I’ll be tweeting reminders throughout the week so that you can hop around to the various blogs and get your reading fix! Hopefully you like what you see and rush off to pre-order a copy. *nudge, nudge* (Ironically enough, I’ll have a pre-order contest starting 4/1 when the chapter reveal tour concludes, so it really will be a good time to buy if you’re interested. But more on that later.)
Until Monday, I wish you all a lovely, fair-weather weekend. (We got slammed with another 12+ inches here on Tuesday, and just when I was finally able to see my lawn again. Isn’t it supposed to be spring or something?) And don’t forget that I’m giving away my last ARC of TAKEN. That contest ends tonight at midnight, so enter quick!
