Amy Helmes and Kim Askew

We are excited to have two rising stars in the YA world, authors Kim Askew and Amy Helmes of the Twisted Lit series, visiting The Children’s Book Review today. We’ve been reading their clever blog Romancing the Tome (all for the love of the literary adaptation!) for years. Their irresistible debut novel Tempestuous will land in bookstores this December and Exposure will follow in January.

Rather than report which novels they’re most anticipating reading, we asked them to describe which books inspired them from their adolescence ( FYI: The Twelve by Justin Cronin will be available on October 16). A big thank-you to Kim and Amy for sharing some of their their favorite YA books with us. We can assure you reading the surprising adventures of their richly drawn heroines, Miranda Prospero and Skye Kingston, in the Twisted Lit series is nothing short of thrilling!
