Breathless Reads Tour Starts Tonight!

I am so excited to be attending the Breathless Reads tour tonight from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Books of Wonder in NYC.

Beginning at 6pm, these five authors will present their novels, take questions from the audience, and sign copies of all of their books. Ages 13 and up.

The line-up of authors is *frexing* awesome and I cannot wait to hear these ladies speak:

ALLY CONDIE (Matched)
ANDREA CREMER (Nightshade)
KIRSTEN MILLER (The Eternal Ones)
BETH REVIS (Across the Universe)
BRENNA YOVANOFF (The Replacement)

Books of Wonder says of the event:

We will host five talented authors of teen fiction as each presents her newest novel.

Ally Condie will introduce Matched, a novel set in a dystopian future where everything is decided by the Officials – where you work, when you die, even who you love – and which finds Cassia making the difficult choice between marrying her “match” or breaking away from the society and pursuing a new boy who she thinks she might love.

Andrea Cremer will share Nightshade, the story of Calla, a young female werewolf, as she struggles with her feelings for a human boy and must decide if abandoning the world she’s always known is worth pursuing love.

Kirsten Miller will introduce The Eternal Ones, a fantasy which follows Haven as she discovers her previous incarnations and struggles to avoid repeating her deadly past.

Beth Revis will delight us with Across the Universe which finds Amy surviving a murder attempt as she is unexpectedly awoken from her cryogenic slumber where she is trapped on a spaceship in transit to a new planet and must discover the murderer before he or she strikes again.

Brenna Yovanoff will entertain us with The Replacement, the story of Mackie, a changeling who replaced a stolen child sixteen years ago, as he reluctantly goes back into his underground world to save his friend’s little sister from being replaced.

This event is free and open to all. Please note that you are welcome to bring one book from home to be signed for each book you purchase on the day of the event. If you have any questions, call (212) 989-3270.

If you happen to be in the tri-state area, come check out this amazing event!

  1. For what it’s worth, I am *seriously* in love with that cover for “The Replacement.”

    Have fun at the reading!

  2. Ah, too bad for me. I live out here in the sticks. You have to promise to tell us all about it.

    I’m dying to read the Matched book. And such a beautiful cover.

  3. This sounds like so much fun! I wish there were things like this going on around my area, but alas, there are none. I can’t wait to hear how this went! I have one of these books on my to read list, but after checking out some of the others, I think I’ll add them all!

    I picked up a copy of Matched at BEA last year and loved it. I am very envious!

  5. What an awesome opportunity to see that group of authors! Looking forward to reading your report. I really enjoyed Across the Universe and Nightshade.

    Have fun!
