Fangirls Spotlight: Poison A Love Letter

Backstory- I actually wrote this a couple of moths ago when the book Love Letters To The Dead came out, for a week or two leading up to the release they were promoting it by having fans write there own Love Letter To The Dead and posting it on Twitter and everything and I kinda kept forgetting and never posted it so here it is!
About Fangirls Spotlight - every month or so I pick a book or author or band that I think is awesome and underrated to share with you all along with some hopefully entertaining posts about the chosen subject and most of the time a giveaway!

Love Letter To The Dead -
Dear Bridget Zinn,
I didn't know you when you were alive but rather discovered you through your writing. Last year I bought this book, Poison, and I read it in one day the day it came out and I fell in love with everything about it. The writing, the world, the characters, Rosie, there wasn't one thing I didn't like about it. 
I was anxious and excited to see if you had any other books out that I could devour as fast and happily as I did Poison, and was unbelievably sad to learn that you had died before your book was even published. You died too young and though I didn't know you in real life I feel like I got to know a part of you, an awesome smart and funny part of you, though your book. I can only imagine how many more epic books you would have written and am so sorry you didn't get the chance to write them or see how people would love your book. With an awesome story line, a badass main character and a unique and magical world your book pulled me in from page one and I know it's not one I'm likely to forget.
On top of your awesome book and excellent writing abilities your story greatly inspired me. To stop waiting around for my life to build itself, for everything I want to simply fall into place and magically be handed to me, and I finally started writing my own book which while it hasn't been published is at least something to show that this is who I want to be, who I am. It's helped become who I am and who I want to be and feel as if at least a small part of that is because of your book.
So thank you for being awesome. For writing a book that regardless of your own sad story would have inspired me to write something as magical and hilarious as Poison. I don't want to end this letter in a sappy yet heartfelt way so I'll just say that in another life you and I were meant to be.
Yours Truly,
Nobody

  1. Oh my goodness. I am in tears reading this. That was such a beautiful letter to her, a lovely tribute. I just went to her website, and my heart is breaking for her and her family. She was so young, and she didn't get to see her dream become a reality. Thank you for sharing this!

    1. Thank you so much for saying that, I was more than a little nervous posting this, but I really think her story, and her book, should really be known better. Her book is awesome and doesn't get nearly as much love as it deserves. =)
