Beautiful Malice



A few months ago I purchased a young adult thriller titled Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James. I enjoyed reading it so much that I just had to find out about the author, who I am proud to say, is a fellow Aussie. I discovered that Rebecca also has a blog.

A few weeks ago my daughter and I entered a competition, held by Rebecca to celebrate the newest cover of her book. However, we did not realise that the competition had closed (in fact she had also announced the winners but we were so excited to enter we negelcted to check her blog properly!). Rebecca still kindly sent Jena a copy of Beautiful Malice. Jena was so excited she read it during the school holidays in two days. In three words, Jena's response was: "Oh. My. God!" She thoroughly enjoyed it and asked me if there was a sequel. While I don't know the answer to her question, what I do know is that Rebecca was generous enough to still consider Jena.

Thank you Rebecca. You absolutely made her day!

Suko: I totaly agree with you. I find so much joy watching my children read and become engrossed in a novel.

Darla: Thank you so much for your compliment. Jena was very happy with the gift. Rebecca also personally signed it, so you can imagine her excitement!
