I Won a Book!

Well, I won the book a while ago, but for some reason I was not receiving emails from the person I won it from, so it has been a while from then to now, when I actually have said book in my hands. Anyways, I won the book from Dovegrey from Dovegrey Scribbles. She did it the most interesting way. She wrote all the names on post-it notes and made her cat walk around through them, and the one that stuck was the winner! And that winner was me! So, all the way from the other side of the sea, I received The Extra Large Medium by Helen Slavin. I have never heard of this book before, but that's good, I wanted a book I had never heard of before. Something different. Well, actually, I was just looking for the book description to share, and this book is not even out in Canada yet. Even better! It is like an advanced reading copy.

So, from the UK amazon, this is what the book is about:

Annie Colville works the only customer service desk for the dead. Alternately wearied and amused by the petty trivialities of heirlooms and everlasting arguments, she tries to live a real life through her job at the University. There, picking over skeletons in the archaeology labs, she finds she's only too ready to fall in love with the enigmatic Evan Bees. But when Evan vanishes, Annie finds there is no one to help her walk the line between the living and the dead. As the messages become darker, so Annie begins to become a ghost at the edges of her own life. Until the night, the Dead mention the name 'Arthur' and the frayed edges of the past begin to knit themselves into the future.

I personally really like the title. Thanks Dovegrey! I look forward to reading this book in February.
