~ My Thoughts ~
Marie's writing is stunningly beautiful and this story she's created; the characters, the world-building, the plot, is nothing short of perfection. PERFECTION!
It was a challenge not to devour THE WINNERS CRIME in one sitting, but I was afraid I might miss something if I did. The plot twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat with my tattered heart in my throat. I savored as much of it as possible until I could no longer resist the urge to finish it. When I did, I was sitting on my bathroom floor at 12:30a.m. hoping my crying wouldn't wake my family up.
It's rare, for me, to love a "second book" even more than the first, but THE WINNER'S CRIME accomplished that. And the line for Arin still starts behind me, but it's okay because there are cupcakes. :D

~ Author Q&A ~
Q: If THE WINNER'S CRIME had a theme song, what would it be?
A: U2’s “With or Without You.” I always like the double meaning in the lyric “and you give yourself away,” which can suggest letting slip something you meant to keep secret, and also sacrificing yourself. <-- I LOVE this song!
Q: Arin has to spend one day in our world, where does he go and why?A: A quiet Mediterranean beach. Let’s give our boy a holiday. He needs it. <-- Agreed! Can I come too?
A: I’ve always liked Prussian blue.
A: Where can I find your lost plays?
Q: I ask all of my blog guests this question...Brownies, cupcakes, or pie? No pressure, I promise! ;)A: CUPCAKES. <-- I knew I liked you, Marie!
