First of all let me apologize to Joy Preble and Paul Samuelson for the tardiness of this review and contest ending.

Author Joy Preble delights with her debut release. Dreaming Anastasia is both fun and full of drama. You follow three main characters through the book. Anastasia Romonav the daughter of the last Tsar of Russia somehow survived the attack on her family and is living in the house of an evil witch who was compelled by an ancient Russian brotherhood to save her life. Ethan has been trapped on earth never changing looking for the girl who can free Anastasia from the clutches of the witch and right the wrong he helped to create when he imprisoned Anastasia with the witch to save her life.

Anne Michealson is your average teen, late sipping, best friend having, and all around apple pie. Then she starts seeing a mysterious and quite handsome boy hanging around everywhere she goes. She marks him off as a stalker and continues with her everyday life. What she doesn’t know is she is destined to free an ancient princess from her prison, and that she is linked to this mysterious guy and together they will bend reality to save Anastasia.

I was excited to recieve a review copy of Dreaming Anastasia from Source Books. I read it immediately and had trouble waiting to post my review there were so many thoughts, and I just really enjoyed reading it. Joy Preble has an amazing writing style, her book is easy to breeze through and have a very relaxing fun read, but at the same time tug at your emotions as plots thicken in the story. I suggest you pick up this book if you are a fan of Historical Fiction, Teen Fiction, or need a relaxing read. It would be a good pick for the 24 hour read-a-thon later in the month and for YA book clubs.

Now the contest winner. I am very sorry to keep you all waiting so long! Susan from Bloggin’ About Books wins the copy of Dreaming Anastasia. Email me your address to pam(@)eurobands(.)us

    I’m planning on going out and buying both this and “Liar.” Good call on saving both for the Readathon.
