Katiebird Reviews Better Deeds Than Words by Georgina Guthrie + Giveaway!

Better Deed than Words cover


Book Summary:

Aubrey and Daniel’s vow to pursue their dangerous romance despite university regulations takes them down a path of secrecy and lies. With only six weeks left to the end of term, they’re under the constant watch of David Grant—Daniel’s “Dean of Students” father. If that weren’t enough to pressure them, Daniel’s checkered past also casts a shadow over the young lovers who continuously tempt fate until one wrong move leads to an inevitable disaster. Can they salvage a relationship when everything seems to be conspiring against them?

I love when a book that made my “Most Anticipated Books” for 2014, exceeds my expectations. I fell in love with Daniel and Aubrey, or Sailor and Poppet, last year in the first book, The Weight of Words. Better Deeds Than Words is the second book in the Words series.

Author Spotlight: Georgina Guthrie

Today I want to shine the spotlight on author Georgina Guthrie, or as I call her…GG. We’ve been friends on twitter for over two years, and in fact I had never read anything she’d written until after I got to meet her in person in 2012.

Katiebird and Tamie Review: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie with GIVEAWAY!

GG's Weight of Words cover

Book summary:

Aubrey Price is in the final months of her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto. Bright, witty and fiercely independent,

Aubrey works part-time for the college Dean and has her sights set on graduating with distinction. When she meets Dean Grant’s son, Daniel, the TA in her senior Shakespearean studies course, a shared love of the Bard’s works and an instant mutual attraction draw Aubrey and Daniel together. Unfortunately, a strict anti-fraternizing policy, made more perilous by a black mark on Daniel’s record, keeps them apart.

Against this academic backdrop, Aubrey and Daniel navigate their way through a steamy courtship, their forbidden romance aided, abetted and sometimes thwarted by a colorful cast of friends, family and classmates.

Like I mentioned before in my interview with The Weight of Words author, Georgina Guthrie last Friday, which you can check out here. I’ve been a fan of her work for a while.  Tamie and I were lucky enough to get an ARC to help promote the release of her books. We are so thrilled that GG decided to publish her fantastic work. There is also a link to a giveaway!!

FANFIC Friday: Katiebird presents an Ode to the Works of GeorgeyGirl

Happy Friday all! We have a special treat today. Please welcome a great friend of the blog and fic goddess, Katiebird! She has put together a fantastic post celebrating the epic stories written by GeorgeyGirl. Take it away, Katie. 🙂

So, I can’t believe that I am actually here! I found this wonderful blog, about a month ago, and now I’m guest hosting. How cool is that?!? I am thrilled and honored to be here, to say the very least.  *hiding a smile with hand, while waving to friends with the other*

Let’s get to why we are all here, great fan fic stories, right?  Just a brief background on my fan fiction history. I’ve been reading fan fic for over 2 years now, and am fairly particular about what I read, even more so about what I recommend.  I am a lover of AU/Vamp stories, first and foremost, so AH stories need to be really special to hold my attention, especially if there is nothing supernatural about them. I really like stories where I learn something, which brings me to why I am reccing these two particular stories.  Georgeygirl has written an amazing story that made me fall in love with Shakespeare’s work all over again

The Ode continues… after the jump!
