Sequel to Princess Academy
By: Shannon Hale
Date Finished: 04.24.12
Wait, this book doesn’t come out until August 21, 2012, you say? Let me explain. About a month ago Shannon Hale hosted a giveaway on her blog — four randomly chosen commenters would receive an advance copy of the book. I never, ever expected to win, but I entered for the fun of it. And I actually won. I am still reeling. I’ve never won anything interesting in my life. Hale did have a requirement for the winners though — they had to read it and like it.
Easiest. Obligation. To fulfill. Ever.
I don’t want to do a full post at this time, but my first impressions are safely saved away in my documents. Sometime after the book is released, I will upload them to here. I didn’t have to read the book to recommend it, but now my claims are substantiated: Pre-order this book! In the meantime, read the first one, Princess Academy, especially if you haven’t already. And when August comes, re-read Princess Academy and go straight into Palace of Stone. They are perfect together!
