Blog Tour Favorite Quotes and Giveaway: Unravel by Imogen Howson

Welcome to the blog tour for Unravel by Imogen Howson! I'm so pleased to share this post with you and be a part of this tour - I LOVED this series! Check out my reviews, my favorite quotes from Unravel, and the awesome giveaway!

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Unravel:

"Cadan bent his head to hears, that little smile still warming his eyes. When he kissed her, she lost her own breath. And it didn't matter what would have happened in an alternate universe, or even in a universe with a slightly different order to events."

"Elissa wasn't looking at a weirdly alien-familiar face. She was looking at her sister, he twin, someone whom she might not understand, but someone whom she might not understand, but whom she knew, whom she loved."

"'Why are you acting like it's a problem that you love me? For goodness' sake, I love you, don't I?'

It was the look on his face that brought her short. 'Now what? What is it?'

'You never said that before,' he said."

"The explosion came, thunderous, world shaking, but from behind the flyer. The grenade had bounced off it, struck the ground before it exploded.

Every last bit of strength went from Elissa's knees. She started to crumple, and Ady caught her. He pulled her away from the doorway and lowered her to the floor.

Then Cadan was there, swinging himself up into the flyer. He reached up, hit the door button, and the door clamped shut, sealing them all in."

Book One of the Linked series
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers
Publication Date: June 11, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads): 

Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere. 

Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes. 

Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed. 

Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world. 

About the Author:

As a child, I loved reading so much that I not only read in bed, at the table and in the bath, but in the shower and – not so successfully – on my bicycle.

I enjoyed books in a slightly unorthodox way, too – many of my childhood books have ragged edges where I tore paper from the margins in order to eat it.

I wrote my first book at eight. It was entitled The Dragon in the Teapot and would probably have been a huge hit if I hadn’t lost the only copy on a family day out.

Some years later, armed with several different types of backups, I’m busy writing romantic science fiction and fantasy for young adults and adults.

I live with my partner, our two teenage daughters, and three cats, near Sherwood Forest in England. I’m a Christian, a feminist, and a lover of cheese, chocolate, stationery shops and eighties pop music. I still read in most places, but I no longer eat paper.

I’m a member of The Romantic Novelists’ Association, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the group blogs The Lucky 13s and Author Allsorts, and the online writers’ community Romance Divas. I’m represented by Mandy Hubbard of D4EO Literary Agency.

The Giveaway:


  1. Thanks for the international giveaway! I think I'd have a very hard time picking someone as my twin brother or sister... probably one of my best friends, but I dunno who I'd pick!! =/

  2. I read the first book and was curious as to whether this one would be from Lin's point of view. I had some issues with the first book, but glad you enjoyed this one!
