Book Events: Dan Wells

In the past ten days I have been to five book events! I know what your thinking and yes I'm really lucky to have great indie bookstores! So this week I'm blogging about those events and after the last post I'm having a giveaway! (throws confetti) Dan Wells was the second of the fifth event and without sound inappropriate I love him! Ok I know that sounds odd but if you meet him you will understand.

When I first came across the Partials cover I was stunned. And then listening to the audio I fell in love. I think that Partials is one of my favorite dystopian novels and if you haven't seen my review you can find that here. I knew that Dan was on tour promoting both Partials and his new adult novel, The Hollow City. What I didn’t know was that he is so funny! If you ever get the chance to meet Dan Wells trust me this is a signing you want to attend. Learning about the fun he had destroying cities in his book is so entertaining. I can’t stress enough that you need to read Partials and ask your local bookstore to bring him for a visit next time he goes on tour. He did mention he’s moving overseas so I’m really glad that Murder by the Book hosted the event before we lose him to another continent.
