♥ REVIEW ♥
It was an amazing book. I didn’t think I would like it so much but I was wrong. It was a book with winter and snow and for that I love it. „Frosted” was a very interessant book and it’s the first book I have ever read with winter’s king.
This book is about Kate, a girl who fell in the cold water when she was skating. This was her destiny. After that she should became the winter’s queen but she refused. She was gone for seven years and when she came back, Jack, the winter’s king, was trying to covince her to be the winter’s queen. If she didn’t accept this, Jack would lose his powers. Althought, he didn’t tell her that thing and until she found out that she loves him, may be too late.
I liked this love story because it was normal but it was complicated. They had sex in dreams but this is kind of weird. Anyway, it was very decent and it was a beautiful story. They had been alone all their life and when they found each other, they were perfect together but they were too scared to recognize that they love each other. It was a fast read and I recommend you this book. You won’t be disappoited.
Thank you so much Wendy and Entangled Publishing for giving me the opportunity to read this amazing book. Rating 5/5 stars.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WENDY SPARROW
At home in the Pacific Northwest, Wendy Sparrow writes for both an adult and young adult crowd. She has two wonderfully quirky kids, a supportive husband, and a perpetually messy house because writing is more fun than cleaning. She enjoys reading with a flashlight under a blanket—the way all the best books should be read—and believes in the Oxford comma, the pursuit of cupcakes, and that every story deserves a happily ever after. Most days she can be found on Twitter where she’ll talk to anyone who talks back, and occasionally just to herself.
♥ INTERVIEW ♥
1. Tell us something about you. What means writing for you?
Like many writers, I’m a writer clear to my soul. I’m a storyteller, a liar, an artist, and a daydreamer. When I was young, I told some whoppers of lies. I think my mom may have briefly worried there was something seriously wrong with me. And she was right—I turned out to be a writer…and we tell the prettiest lies, and we lay out our dreams in front of an audience. Being a writer is the best job in the world. We can travel in our heads and then show you everywhere we’ve visited and who we’ve met. Everyone should be so lucky to do something they can’t help but love.
2. Were you scared about people’s reaction when they read your book for the first time?
I’m always scared the first time I send a manuscript out—it’s been a dream in my head and the characters friends of mine and mine alone…and I’m tossing them to the wolves. With Frosted, there was the added aspect of coming from an extremely conservative family…and I’ve written a romance…and not a sweet, innocent romance. It’s a kissing book! So, I’d carefully picked who could read it prior to publishing based on how much I was worried it would offend them. I thought I had it all under control.
Then Frosted hit the “shelves,” everyone and anyone could read it. I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to make eye contact at family gatherings and at church, but everyone has been wonderfully supportive. I still get twitchy when someone in my extended family or at church tells me they’ve read it. It becomes much more difficult to pretend you don’t even know what sex is when you’ve written a romance and they’ve read it.
3. Who is your favorite author and which is your favorite book? Can you recommend us a book?
My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
I read some amazing books last year. Top five for last year are probably:
1. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
2. I, Robot by Isaac Asimov
3. The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen
4. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
5. The Hero’s Guide to Saving your Kingdom by Christopher Healy
I actually quit sleeping last year in order to read. Okay…not really, but almost. I read 393 titles last year and loved a ton of them. For the full list, including those marked as favorites, see my blog post: http://wendysparrow.com/2013/01/titles-read-in-2012/
4. Which book do you wish you could have written?
The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen. The world-building and foreshadowing in that book made me wish I was as good a writer.
5. If you were a supernatural creature, which creature would you be?
A phoenix. There is just something so wonderful about a do-over that starts with flames.
6. Does music inspire you? What kind of music do you like to listen?
Yes. You can find a story in every piece of music…even those without words.
This is…almost embarrassing, but I’ve discovered I’m a huge Taylor Swift fan. I keep buying her music for my eleven year old daughter, but then I sit and listen to it for hours.
7. What do you think about Romania and Romanian literature? Have you been in Romania?
Well, you might be tired of hearing this, but I’ve studied one aspect of Romania and Romanian literature extensively as a paranormal writer and that’s Romanian folklore. Some of the most intriguing mythical figures we borrow for novels come from Romanian folklore—the vampire specifically, but many of the characteristics commonly used by paranormal writers for werewolves, spirits, and zombies all come from the amazing folklore of Romania.
I’ve recently been working on a young adult novel with a vampiric muse and I spent hours reading Romanian legends. The lore of your country is so fascinating that I can just drown in it for hours and, while I call it research…nothing that intriguing and addictive can masquerade as work.
I’ve never been in Romania, but I’d love to. The architecture and history of the United States seems infantile beside many of the countries in Europe and I’d love to just visit and soak it in.
8. Do you like extreme sports?
Noooooo…not if you mean participating in them. I’m gutless, but also I have early onset arthritis. I’ve had arthritis since I was twenty-one years old. I already spend far too much time with a bag of frozen peas up against my shoulder.
I enjoy watching them…from the comfort of my couch…with a bag of frozen peas on my shoulder.
9. Do you have another project in your mind?
The next thing I’ll be working on is revising an adult futuristic suspense, but I also have a few more romances coming soon from Entangled and in April, Autism Awareness month, I’ll have a non-fiction short story in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum.
10. Would you like to say something to your Romanian readers?
Of course…thank you for giving paranormal writers myths to explore, and I hope Frosted is available for you to read. The blog hop giveaway is open internationally and I’d love to find out how much it costs to ship a necklace to Romania.
Thank you so, so much for the interview 🙂
