Totally Unexpected Announcement: LYNBURN LEGACY READ ALONG

yabooknook:

My friends, I have EXCELLENT news!

Have you recently found yourself craving torment? Soul-twisting misery? Feels that make you wanna cry and laugh and possibly cry some more? 

The answer is yes. Don’t question it.

Well, I have the solution to all those problems:

Ta-da! (Graph made by Sondra, ‘cause she has skills and I suck.)

So, as everyone (EVERYONE) knows, UNMADE by Sarah Rees Brennan is coming out ridiculously soon on September 23rd *throws confetti*, which means we have roughly a month before finally, finally getting our hands on the soul-wrenching finale to The Lynburn Legacy trilogy.

To celebrate, and perhaps because we are masochists, the lovely Sondra and I will be hosting a Lynburn Legacy Read-Along starting tomorrow. 

Everyone should totally join. I 100% endorse it.

So, here’s how it’s going to work: The Read-Along will happen over tumblr and twitter, roughly during the set dates (above). Sondra and I will be both reblogging/responding/crying with you guys and moderating “Book Chats” over on Twitter.

The idea is that we (all) re-read UNSPOKEN and UNTOLD right on time for the UNMADE release—and then read that together as well. Misery loves company, right? Yay, shared pain!

(Coincidentally, if you’ve never read UNSPOKEN, this is a great time to do it! Yes. Do it. You want to.)

The times for the Twitter Chats will be announced once they get closer, because Sondra and I will have to coordinate silly time zone differences.

We’ll be using the tag #LynburnRead on twitter and tumblr, so if you are reading along (of course you are!) or making/posting content you’d like us to see, tag it with that!

(Alternatively, #JaredHasAFineAss is also a tag we’ll be tracking. I mean, no, that’s totally unofficial… you didn’t hear it from me.)

SO! If you want to join in this crazy awesome Read Along you do, either message me or Sondra or make a post or tweet it or start tagging stuff with the tag—Basically, make yourself known whichever way you want. We’ll be waiting.

Tell your followers! Your friends! Your parents! Your dog! Your psycho-uncle-who-is-also-your-dad!

Wait. No.

ARE YOU ALL EXCITED ABOUT THIS?! I am ;)

Contact-y info:

Adriana (YABookNook) - tumblr - twitter

Sondra - tumblr - twitter

I am super excited this is happening! Look what a perfect opportunity has been handed to me to use this .gif. ;)

Even more than that, I am excited because of what a lovely thing this is. As I go toward the official end of the trilogy and an UNKNOWN FUTURE (there may be bears involved… bears in space) it is so beautimous to me to see love for this series which I love, and the idea of having a celebration-y reading time for it pleases me so much. I’m so happy Adriana and Sondra want to do it.

I will be makin’ myself available on twitter and tumblr, and use the tag, to answer any questions/cackle wildly at your pain. 

'Have you recently found yourself craving torment? Soul-twisting misery?'

I feel really lucky that for my belovedest readers the answer was yes. ;)

My new project!! The scents of the Lynburn Legacy.

Super cool! I like lavender and I like the tag lines, with loving and fighting side by side. ;)

The first epigraph which opens Unmade is a quote from Tennyson:

'We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.’

Kami Glass and Jared Lynburn a couple to be taken seriously. 

But honestly, Sarah Rees Brennan rocks characterization so hard.

Awwwwwwww.

*pauses* D’awwwwww.

Am I taking ‘ties of red and gold’ too literally here?

Don’t worry, Jared, Kami’s on her way to save you!

I’m clawing my way out of this drawing slump guys :) 

Kami’s taken a few months. ;) 

(TOO MEAN! Fire this author!)

I really like the ties! Fun fact: I remember searching for pictures to show what I wanted in a cover and I had a whole set that was people tied up with red ribbon.

Yes. People being tied up. I am so great at being a YA author. Filth, filth, endless filth. ;)

See how cool this is! I love the funky (IS THAT AN OLD PERSON THING TO SAY?) vibe of the colours, and I love his jeans and her take-charge attitude and her headband!

Is this not a FANTASTICALLY AMAZING (fantamazing?) picture! I imagine it as the poster for Disney’s girls’ own mystery adventure! I love all their outfits and their expressions and how deeply characteristic of the characters they are! I love Angela, Kami and Holly and I love this! I am so grateful and delighted!

The weight of your family´s legacy
 (Jared Lynburn)

Oh my gosh this is amazing. I want it as an illustration in the book! I am in awe.
He’s so cute with his hair and his T-shirt and his bloody hands! The house on the hill surrounded by trees looks like it’s from a old-school Gothic cover! The blood it comes down like a river onto his hands! They could have a blood moat at Aurimere! Yaaaaas. 
I’m sorry. I’m such an unacceptable author. This should be a graceful and insightful expression of how artistic and insightful I found this art to be!

Doodle of the day. Sweet Holly Prescott, who is my favorite character.

When I was drawing this I thought maybe Holly would become a race car driver or something. But she’s also good at English, so maybe she’ll become a novelist or a teacher. Any which way, I want her to think about herself a little more. Who does she want to become?

She may want to become a SUPREME CUTIE PIE, in which case congratulations Holly. What an adorable picture! I love that she’s got her motorcycle helmet, too: she has a lot of different disparate elements to her, our Holly, and that makes her fun to write and feel like a whole person to me. I think she’s still trying to work out who she is… but I think I know, and I think my awesome readers know too, seeing pictures like this. ;)

Holly and her motorcycle actually have an important role to play in Unmade…
