Beauty was the first Robin McKinley book I ever read. It became an instant favorite; I must’ve read it cover to cover a dozen times (or more–back then books were harder to come by), pressed it upon my friends and jealously watched for its return. Since then, I’ve read a number of McKinley’s books and found her imagination rich and prose exquisite. I haven’t taken to all of her works (they’re hit-or-miss with me in terms of story line), but I love her style and voice. I always sample her books, and finding those that click with me is a heady experience.
So, this giveaway is a copy of my absolute favorite McKinley book–Sunshine. This combination of vampires, post-apocalypse and baked goods drew me in despite myself (not a fan of vampires here!) and filled the hours I spent reading it with wonder.
To win a copy, leave a comment before 8 pm (EST) Friday, July 16th. I’ll draw a name at random and email the lucky winner. This is open to everyone, even if you live outside the US.
