“Fear made you cold. It made you tremble. Anger made you hot. It made you want to hurt someone.”
Savita Kalhan, The Long Weekend

“They sat quietly, shoulder to shoulder, listening to the sound of nothing. Nothing can sound very loud sometimes, louder than noise, even louder than a jumbo jet passing overheard.”
Savita Kalhan, The Long Weekend

“It was the same girl she had seen this morning. The one she didn't recognise. The one she didn't like. She didn't want to look at her.”

Vicky Oh, that'd be perfect!
Me and one of my blogger friends are hosting an event next month: our aim is to read as many of our review books as we can. It runs from 1-31 March and we're going to host mini-challenges as well, so we're looking for authors who would like to appear on our blogs with a giveaway.

I'd love to review it for you but I'm taking a break from ebooks at the moment so I accept paperbacks only.


Savita Kalhan Lovely to meet you too!
By the way, thanks for adding my book to your to-be-read list. I won't bug you, but if you're interested in hosting a giveway on your blog with a review/interview then I would be happy to oblige. If not, then enjoy the book anyway - watch the video for an idea of how scary it might be for you...
