Okay, I'll admit it.
I've been a very bad girl.
I'm just now downloading and about to read Cassandra Clare's The City of Bones. My aunt and every writer around has been saying--what's wrong with me? Why haven't I read this yet? I know, as a writer who tries to keep abreast of what's popular in children's publishing I've bypassed a book I should never of. In my defense, I did TRY to read this about three years ago, but alas the audiobook's voice completely turned me off. So much so that I got up to that FAMOUS club scene and shut the damn thing off. I tried SO hard, but the voice killed the story for me.
So Lesson 1) Choose your audiobook narrator carefully.
Lesson...well Lesson 1 was the only lesson I actually had.
Basically, now that the movie is coming out, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Now, I know I'm not the only one doing so. Come on, ya'll. Raise your hands--I know I'm not the only one.
Is it really so wrong to jump on the bandwagon, especially if it helps us discover a great story? Would love your thoughts.
