Seriously, what an amazing event!!
The book also sounds quite good. As for my favorite Dark YA book? That book gave me the chills. In terms of dark YA, I can think of two. The Hunger Games series, which was just…wow, dark. While not everything was dark in that series, there were some dark gritty moments, made all the more dark because the series is set in the here and now, not some dystopian future, or historic past.
Thanks for hosting the giveaway the book sounds really interesting! Entangled, by Cat Clarke was really dark in how realistically it dealt with depression, self harm and suicide. Great question and a fab giveaway. New follower here! Probably the Marbury Lens. I love the Twilight series. Please enter me in contest.
The Poison Diaries: A Book Smuggler on Location (& a Giveaway)
I would love to read this series. It sounds very good. Tore aol. The parts where she remembers her life as a vampire are pretty dark. That sounds like such an amazing trip! I wish I could see the Poison Garden myself the way you did. Bleeding Violet was quite dark! I am intrigued by this new book, so please enter me in the contest!
This book sounds great and would love to read it. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win. Looking forward to it now, and to The Poison Diaries. My favorite dark YA novel? This book sounds awesome! I think my favorite dark ya is Sabriel by Garth Nix. Is that dark enough? Thanks for the great giveaway!
The Poison Diaries sounds like a perfect introduction to dark fantasy YA. Its awesome! It put me through the emotional gamete. I really hope I win this book! That book is so full of grief and lust and bittersweet love. I remain so completely jealous but I loved seeing the Twitter pictures and the comments from all of you guys who got the chance to go. I want to know what it felt like to be in Hogwarts, though! Did you get a chance to walk some of the famous corridors? I shamefully had actually not heard a thing about these books until you guys were spirited away!
I pressed send without answering the question. I blame it on Fred the new Arm Brace. My favourite dark YA title would probably have to be The Replacement. I know that we slightly disagree about the execution of this one but I loved Mackie so much that no lack of plot made a difference to me! Going to go with Unwind. Is that sufficiently dark? Maybe not, but it definitely had its moments.
Oh this book seems really great! I would say bleeding violet. Hope you have a great and exciting time! Both were great reads but had me cringing in parts. Wow…what an awesome opportunity you got! Reading about your visit has made me quite interested in the book. Please enter me in the giveaway. Thanks for the giveaway, The Poison Diaries sounds amazing. Bleeding Violet? I think that would be my favorite!
Thanks for the giveaway. Does the Gone series count as dark? Considering how many people die, are tortured, etc. The books get successively more gruesome and dark! Love the series! I would say the Splendour falls, I thought it was quite deep for a young adult. Thanks for t his awesome giveaway.
Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood | Epic Reads
I love trilogy The Mortal Instruments? Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway! I read it when I was about 15 or 16 and it still sticks in my mind as being a brilliant and shocking read! Thanks so much for the chance. Id say all four of his are my favorite. Does Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson count? In addition, I loved that this book intertwined fairy tale romance which are books more so in my comfort zone with deeper and more powerful meanings! Brilliant book. Check it out over at Floor to Ceiling Books. Thanks for sharing, complete with pictures.
Great read. Did I say love? Because, yeah, love. Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves! Hands down! Best dark ya ive read so far! XD When i was reading it I though I was starting to go insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I need to catch up on reading some Dark YA!! It has stayed with me even years after reading it. If I have to pick one, then Tithe. I can only vaguely recall the plot, but I remember how enthralled I was by the writing, and the relationship between the two main characters.
I have read some of ya novel but not many. I think the book You by Charles Benoit was dark. And the ending is a twist…that leans toward the dark side. Its a book that gives insight into a lost teen, and though the reader eventually understands it remains dark till the end. I just have to say I am so jealous of your bookish experience I almost hate you a little bit…haha…just a titch. Sounded so awesome! Oh gosh that is hard, but I loved Forbidden. Thanks for the giveaway!

Katie July 30, at am Maybe Mr. That got kind of dark near the end for a YA novel. Sabrina July 30, at am I did enjoy Bleeding Violet as well. Lexi July 30, at am I love books on herbs.
April July 30, at am What an awesome experience and cool giveaway. The plants try to persuade Weed that with their help his master can easily be disposed of. Weed at first refuses. However, after his first love, Marigold, experiments with the poisons and dies, Weed is pushed over the edge and eventually plots to kill his master in spectacular fashion, using a taste of his own evil medicine.
Each "chapter" of the story starts with Weed making botanical notes of the plants as his master has taught him. The plant's appearance and properties, where it is found, how it should be cared for, the most poisonous parts, how poison is extracted and administered, etc. These notes are accompanied by sketches of the plants in their natural form. Alongside, however, are Weed's illustrated "diary" entries which show the "real" personalities of the plants. This gothic yet entertaining tale will delight both children and adults and also serves as an educational parable.
