Halloween is only a week away, so we thought it appropriate to give away something nice a spooky . . . actually, three things nice and spooky.
I was introduced to Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s Beautiful Creatures series about a year ago, when I was taking a road trip to South Carolina and wanted an audiobook for the drive. The Gothic story about a sleepy Southern town, young love and good and evil was perfect for the ride.
Last week, Beautiful Chaos—book three in the Beautiful Creatures series—came out. BookPage interviewed Garcia and Stohl about superstitions, Halloween and their writing process. Here’s a preview, on their favorite things about Halloween:
Margaret: The costumes. And the general suspension of belief—like everyone is willing to believe in anything, just for one night.
Kami: The eerie atmosphere is my favorite part, and the mythology that Halloween is the night when the veil between the living and the dead is the thinnest.
This week, we’re giving away the first three books in Garcia and Stohl’s series. Here’s how you can win them:
