The Radleys Blog Tour

I'm pretty excited to be part of the blog tour for The Radleys by Matt Haig!! Isn't that a great cover?? Fun and creepy at the same time.



Meet the Radleys 

Peter, Helen and their teenage children, Clara and Rowan, live in an English town. They are an everyday family, averagely dysfunctional, averagely content. But as their children have yet to find out, the Radleys have a devastating secret.

From one of Britain’s finest young novelists comes a razor-sharp unpicking of adulthood and family life. In this moving, thrilling and extraordinary portrait of one unusual family, The Radleys asks what we grow into when we grow up, and explores what we gain – and lose – when we deny our appetites. 


I'm only one stop on the tour. Each Friday, the people at S&S will select one person who commented on all participating blogs for that week to win a prize. The winner will be announced each Monday on Helen and Rowan’s twitter accounts @Helen_Radley and @rowanradley in the next Monday’s blogger’s post.

The prize will be a copy of THE RADLEYS in both hardcover and paperback signed by author Matt Haig and some blood-red hot chocolate. 

I tried to finish the book before the tour so I could post a review, but with school deadlines I didn't get it finished. I am about 100 pages in and it's a really great story. The main characters are fun, the story has this edge that I really like and the writing is really good. I'll definitely post a review as soon as I can breath again. 

In the meantime, check out all the ways you can connect with the The Radleys. You can read an excerpt of the book here. (The first chapter ending is awesomesauce!!)  And this quiz: ARE YOU A RADLEY? I'm only 33%, but maybe you are more than me! Take the quiz and let me know.

Check out this book and find out...who are The Radleys?
