I think if you looked at all the authors that I've reviewed and loved over the last year or so, you couldn't pick two that were more diametrically different in style and content. And yet, they do have a few things in common, other than just general authorial awesomeness:
Both have offered me hours of top notch entertainment over the last year.
Both have signed books for me and graciously ignored my stammering starstruck awkwardness.
And both are in the FINAL FOUR!!! in Harper Collins' March Madness promotion. This is really a HUGE accomplishment. The contest started out with 64 books, paired up and voted off round after round.
If you haven't voted yet, go do so here. You can also sign up to win all 64 books from the competition-- my little bookworm heart just goes pitter-pat at the very thought.
