Stitch Makes Top Books of 2012 @ Dark Obsession Chronicles

Super excited that Stitch was included on this AWESOME list of Top Books of 2012 at Dark Obsession Chronicles!

I literally just spent the last hour loading up my Goodreads TBR with Alana’s suggestions – check out her post here and make sure you don’t miss out!  Thank you so much to Alana for putting Stitch on this list – I’m SO honored to be a part of it!

Stitch Top 3 Book of 2012 @ A Thousand Lives!

Wanted to share some awesome news – Stitch was selected as one of the Top 3 books of 2012 by A Thousand Lives book blog!  Take a look at what Jannah and Nicki had to say about Stitch:

This book had a little bit of everything and weaved it all together in perfect harmony. This is Durante’s debut novel and I believe the girl has a really bright future as an author if this book is any indication of things yet to come.

I’m BEYOND honored for Stitch to be included on this truly awesome list of amazing books/authors.  If you’re looking to pile up your TBR, definitely swing by A Thousand Lives and check it out!

Once again, HUGE thanks to Nicki and Jannah for taking a chance on Stitch!  And Happy New Year to all!
