Man, this woman can right! Anybody read any of her books? She's most famous for Seven Deadly Sins, I think, but I'm reading Skinned at the moment and it's AWESOME. There's a quote from Scott Westerfeld on the front cover as well - it's pretty similar to Uglies/Pretties/Specials.

I've heard of the Seven Deadly Sins series, but never read it. Skinned, however, I have read.

It. Was. Amazing.

I bought it as a hardback, which I usually never do, especially if I've never read anything from that author before. I'm so glad I did, though, and am eager for the sequel. It's so...gray and thought-provoking and just plain awesome.

Ergh. Why'd you have to remind me about this book, Iz? I feel like re-reading it now. XD

I just realised I spelled "write" as "right". xDDDDDDD ARGH! I am SUCH a spaz.

I finished Skinned today; and yes - it is INCREDIBLE. SO INCREDIBLE. ARGH. I'm so glad there's a sequel! I loved it so much.

READ IT AGAIN! xDDDDD I mean, I can't wait to read it again and I've just FINISHED it. xD

Iz! Have you read Crashed yet? It was just as amazing as Skinned, if not more so. I love how Robin Wasserman turns your expectations upside-down and is not afraid to tackle the tough issues. We even get a better glimpse into the past of some of the mechs, which was awesome. And the end...gah! I want the third book NOW. *bouncebouncebounce*

Wow, the interview's pretty cool.

I read Skinned sometime in the summer and I don't remember much of my reaction to it, but I think I really quite liked it. I'm just not crazy in love, though, or I'd remember. Haha.
