Y'all know how much I love Sarah Rees Brennan's Unspoken, so I doubt that anyone's surprised that I'm trying to win an ARC of Untold. The lovely kiyala and I went into Sydney two weekends ago, me with my beautiful Unspoken hardcover, she with her ridiculously complicated looking camera, and these photos are the result.
In front of the pretty, Gothic-y gates in Hyde Park. I'm nowhere near as pretty as Angela Montgomery, and I don't have her dark hair, but I decided that I'd dress like her nonetheless.
A better view of the pretty gates. Kii's an insane perfectionist (AND I LOVE HER FOR IT), so there are actually about 10 more perfectly nice photos of me reading Unspoken in front of these gates. I'll spare you the repetition.
In front of one of the cathedrals in the city. I'm not sure which one, I'm not religious. As far as weird locations to be reading creepy gothic novels in Sydney go, I think I would have to actually climb the Opera House to get weirder looks than I got at the cathedral. (Sydneysiders are hard to shock, religious tourists aren't. And I'm not climbing the Opera House, I would get arrested.)
Technically, Sarah's instructions for the photo part of the competition said for us to be reading Unspoken. But how can I claim to be dressed as Angela if there isn't at least one photograph of me napping?
And finally, a closeup of my nails, which match the book cover. Unfortunately, the focus didn't catch the flower details on my thumb, but you can see the (extremely dodgy) autumn leaves on the rest of my nails.
One of these days, I will get photos taken of myself where I am not reading Sarah Rees Brennan books. Today is not that day.
