www.rockstarbooktours.com

In today’s book spotlight - with thanks to Rock star book tours - it’s an absolute delight to feature Rae Carson’s Walk on Earth a Stranger!

Happy book birthday Rae! I don’t know about you, but when I first came across this book, I immediately fell in love with the title.

Never mind that I had no clue what it was about, as someone who’s always been a sucker for flowy, pretty and intriguing titles, this one hit the “you need to find out what I’m all about and read me” button instantaneously.

While I haven’t had the chance to read the book as of yet (purchasing my copy this Friday because: PAY DAY!), I’ve heard nothing but positive things about it thus far.

Today’s spotlight features a US only giveaway, but fear not international friends – I’m planning on doing a giveaway for this in the forthcoming weeks.

In the meantime, here’s all the info you need about Walk on Earth a Stranger. Once again, happy book birthday Rae! Hope you’re celebrating with gold-dusted cupcakes!

About The Book:


Title: WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER
Author: Rae Carson
Pub. Date: September 22, 2015
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Pages: 448

The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson.

A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. 

The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. 


Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.

Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.
