In celebration of a new year, we're getting a little retrospective... for the next five weeks, we're going to be reading and reviewing SEQUELS of books we've read before! And we're starting with a favorite author around here... Neal Shusterman! We'll be reading UnWholly, the second book in the Unwind dystology (there are four books total, plus a companion novella about Lev Calder).
So here's a little look back at the first book's history here on the blog.
We reviewed Unwind a little less than two years ago, in January 2013. Naturally, we both loved it. (If we didn't, we probably wouldn't be so eager to review the second book.)
That was back when we were still doing By Its Cover on Saturdays, so we also talked about the cover of the book.
When it came time for us to pick our favorite books we reviewed that year, Cassy named Unwind (and it was part of my own three-way tie, even though I talked about World War Z instead).
This year, Cassy met the man himself, which we'll call a belated birthday gift for her, and she was able to get us a signed copy of Unwind to give away to the lucky winner Brent! (And me, too.)
So, I think it's pretty clear that this is going to be an amazing way to kick off 2015 for us. Stick around throughout January for the rest of the Month of Sequels!
