I've become quite a fan of Patrick Ness over the past year or so. After reading Monsters of Men as part of the Indie Lit Awards a few years back, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it (being a YA sci-fi, it should have been everything I disliked) but I was hooked.
I was also lucky enough to give away copies of The Knife of Never Letting Go as part of World Book Night this year, and a good number of people who took a copy from me were equally enthralled by his writing.
After all that, how pleased was I to see this Tweet from Patrick Ness pop up in my feed?

I'm looking forward to getting stuck into these myself, once I've reduced my TBR Tower a little.
