Standalone Spotlight – Month One

Welcome to the first Standalone Spotlight! This feature is a part of the 2012 Standalone Challenge hosted by myself and Britta at I Like These Books. If you would like to sign up for the challenge and have not already done so, see the intro post HERE.

So what is a Standalone Spotlight? Each month Britta and I will each pick a standalone YA novel releasing during that month. Throughout the month we will hold author interviews, giveaways, reviews and other fun posts like this-or-that lists, character interviews and book trailer features! Sounds like fun, right?

For the month of January, my Standalone Spotlight will be:


Megan Miranda’s debut: FRACTURE!
If you haven’t already gotten your hands on this book, you have no idea how much you’re missing out on.

I will be featuring my review, a giveaway (of course!), and a character interview. But who knows what else I might have? Stay tuned for more!

    I'm waiting on this from the library! They seem to have ordered it, but I have no clue when it's coming in. Hopefully soon! :D

    I recently read a little about Fractured and it sounds like a very interesting book. I look forward to reading more with your spotlight events:)

    I so need me some stand alone books. What is up with all the series? They're killer sometimes waiting for.

    Can't wait for this one.

    Yay, Fracture! I just posted my review of it today (I should add it to the Standalone Challenge linky!). Really enjoyed that book. :)

    I've heard a lot of positive reviews for this one–sound intriguing (was it on NetGalley? I didn't get it for some reason…).

    You hardly see stand alones anymore. At least I don't. Everything seems to be a series. This is an interesting feature. I think I'll follow it. I like stand alones. I hate waiting a year for the sequel.

    Yay someone else who likes stand alones. I love a series too but I hate the having to wait cliffhangers suck.
