The Week's Entrée #145

Hi everyone! Welcome to another edition of The Week's Entrée!

So this happened last Thursday:
I never, NEVER imagined that one day a favorite author would dedicate their book to me, let alone my absolute favorite author. But then the wonderful Danielle L. Jensen, author of The Malediction Trilogy (Stolen Songbird!) dedicated her new prequel novel to this series, The Broken Ones, to me. Danielle and I have become friends over the past two years, but before that, she was just my new favorite author for having written Stolen Songbird which honestly blew me away into a level of obsession. I remember I SQUEALED when she suddenly followed me back on Twitter and then I don't know how it happened but she would answer my tweets and a few DMs, then share with me the new cover of the second book and tease me with the third. Now she has allowed me to beta read the last two novels and THAT alone meant the world to me, and still does. 

I'm always forever grateful for the opportunities she's given me, for her friendship which is a dream come true in itself. And now this. I cried. Still makes me tear up in all honesty. But I guess that's nothing new coming from Danielle since she loves to make her readers cry and I've shed many tears with her wonderful books.

 The honor she has bestowed me by dedicating The Broken Ones to me is something I will NEVER forget. Not in a million years. Thanks for another dream come true. ♥
