PFS2012 Author Guest Post: Jessica Therrien + Giveaway


I remember reading an awesome review, though I'm too lazy to look it up, written by Sam at Realm of Fiction on OPPRESSION by Jessica Therrien, and it's been on my mind for quite a while. I can never get enough of Greek myth retellings, which, as you know, fits wonderfully with this month's theme! Today, Jessica is here to talk to you about her hate-to-love relationship with reading, which I think some of us can definitely relate to!

Hi! I’m Jessica Therrien, the author of Oppression (Children of the Gods #1), and I’m here to tell you how YA fantasy/paranormal books changed my life. Thanks for having me Asher!

My mother is an English teacher, so when I was growing up I felt a lot of pressure to love reading. My problem? I didn’t. I hated it (a shameful secret I kept to myself amongst my brainiac group of friends). Sure I got good grades, wrote A+ papers, and geeked out with the rest of them, but when it came to reading for fun, I cringed. I was convinced something was wrong with me.

Then one day, in my effort to at least look like I was interested in books, I came across Harry Potter. I was on vacation, and with nothing else to do I decided to give it a go. Maybe if I just kept trying to like reading, one day I would. Maybe it was an acquired taste, like black coffee or fancy cheese.

I expected to put the book down after chapter five like the rest of them, completely confused as to why people liked to torture themselves with this reading thing, BUT…as you may have guessed, I. LOVED. IT. I couldn’t get enough!

Then something amazing happened. I understood. I realized that I didn’t hate reading. I just hated reading the depressing books my mother had lined our bookshelves with. Come to find out, my mother doesn’t like fantasy.

Once I found my genre and discovered the world of YA fiction with its page-turning stories that carried me away to different worlds, I was hooked. I’m so thankful for that moment, because in the end it changed my life. If you had told me in high school that I would end up being an author, I would have laughed in your face. Go figure…I love what I do. And guess what else? I love to read.

What books changed your perspective on reading? Any memorable titles that changed your life in some way?

Elyse knows what it means to keep a secret. She's been keeping secrets her whole life. Two, actually. First, that she ages five times slower than the average person, so that while she looks eighteen years old, she's closer to eighty. Second, that her blood has a mysterious power to heal. For Elyse, these things don't make her special. They make life dangerous. After the death of her parents, she's been careful to keep her secret as closely guarded as possible. Now, only one other person in the world knows about her age and ability. Or so she thinks. Elyse is not the only one keeping secrets. There are others like her all over the world, descendants of the very people the Greeks considered gods. She is one of them, and they have been waiting for her for a long time. Among so many of her kind, she should not be very remarkable--except for the prophecy. Some believe she will put an end to traditions, safeguarded by violence, which have oppressed her people for centuries. Others are determined to keep her from doing just that. But for Elyse, the game is just beginning--and she's not entirely willing to play by their rules.

Hmm... Definetly Unwind by Neal Shusterman. So thought provoking!

Lili said...

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak blew me away! It's so powerful, I couldn't not sit back on me heels completely blown away once I completed it. I will forever love that book!

Gaby said...

The Sky is Everywhere, yeah that one is one on those that change my view on reading. It taught me that there is more them vampire book out there :)

Sam @ Realm of Fiction said...

This sounds eerily like my own experience with reading! It took the Harry Potter books to make me realise I loved to read, but before then, I had no joy in it as a hobby. Great guest post! :)

Amy said...

I've been hooked on paranormal/urban fantasy since I was 10, thanks to L.J. Smith's Secret Circle and The Forbidden Game trilogies. Back then there were very few YA novels that featured creatures of the night like witches, vampires, and shape-shifters. I'm really glad that she's gotten more recognition for her novels... even if it's because of the Twilight craze.

Titles that are forever etched in my mind: The Stones of Mourning Creek by Diane Les Becquets, Time Enough for Drums by Ann Rinaldi, and The Road by Cormac McCarthy.
Great guest post! Oppression sounds great, I'm adding it to my TBR list :)

The first series I really got into, and that also got me hooked on reading was the Pendragon series by D.J. Machale. A friend introduced me to them, and I loved them, so I started reading more frequently, and now that's all I do. (:

Amy G said...

The book that really changed my life was The Angel Experiment, the first in the Maximum Ride series. I've always loved reading, and had long before 5 this book, but for some reason it resonated with me in a huge, unexplainable way. I remember being in 7th grade and just being obsessed with TAE. It really made me fall in love with reading again, at a time I didn't even realize I was stagnant in my love of reading. Although the later books have been not so good, I still love this series and will always be glad it exists.
