Throwdown Thursday (7)
Throwdown Thursday is a meme started by Kate at The Neverending Shelf. This is a weekly thing where we tackle books with similar characters, covers, themes, etc. to determine which one rocks more. And it is up to YOU to determine the winner!
Last week, my throw down saw two of YA fiction’s most loved lycanthropes going head to head. And the winner was…
Jacob from Twilight. Seems a lot of people can’t get enough of this guy.
This week, I’m throwing down two Victorian-Gothic YA novels that I really love. Dangerous other-realms, powerful friendships, and bucketfuls of atmosphere make these two firm favourites with me, even though one of them's a new kid on the block. Which one’s your favourite?
Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink?
Or A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray?
