I put a few books on hold at the library this week because my summer holidays start next week which I'm very excited about. So I got three books from the library and one book in the mail for review which I was actually really surprised about.
From the library:
Keys to the Repository by Melissa De La Cruz
Lavish parties. Passionate meetings in the night. Bone-chilling murders. Midterms. The day-to-day life of Schuyler Van Alen and her Blue Bloods friends (and enemies) is never boring. But there's oh-so-much more to know about these beautiful and powerful teens. Below the streets of Manhattan, within the walls of the Repository, exists a wealth of revealing information about the vampire elite that dates back before the Mayflower.
Torment by Lauren Kate
May contain spoilers. How many lives do you need to live before you find someone worth dying for? In the aftermath of what happened at Sword & Cross, Luce has been hidden away by her cursed angelic boyfriend, Daniel, in a new school filled with Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. Daniel promises she will be safe here, protected from those who would kill her. At the school Luce discovers what the Shadows that have followed her all her life mean - and how to manipulate them to see into her other lives. Yet the more Luce learns about herself, the more she realizes that the past is her only key to unlocking her future...and that Daniel hasn't told her everything. What if his version of the past isn't actually the way things happened...what if Luce was really meant to be with someone else?
The Project by Brian Falkner
His life could change the world. His death could save it.
It all started with a book. The most boring book in the world! So boring that nobody would ever read it. The perfect place to hide a terrible secret. But now the book has emerged from its hiding place and the world may never be the same.
And for review I got:
Allie Carson: Interpreter Extraordinaire by Marilyn Kinghorn
Gifted with the secret ability to talk with animals, Allie Carson lives with her father and her younger special needs brother Jonah. When Allie uses her gift to communicate with a young seal, she's told marine animals are mysteriously getting sick and dying. Allie and her best friends Sam and Brenna set out to investigate the problem. Between school, soccer and life at home, will Allie and her friends discover the source of the devastation in time to help her new animal friends?
And that was my week in the way of books. Now I'll leave you with Scarlett to share what she got this week.
Alrighty, this week was super exciting for me!!! Mostly because the book I ordered a while back came in the mail and I got two very awesome looking books for review.
The book I bought was
Restoring Harmony by Joelle Anthony
The year is 2041, and sixteen-year-old Molly McClure has lived a relatively quiet life on an isolated farming island in Canada, but when her family fears the worst may have happened to her grandparents in the US, Molly must brave the dangerous, chaotic world left after global economic collapse—one of massive oil shortages, rampant crime, and abandoned cities.
I absolutely love science fiction and I'm on a huge dystopian binge at the moment, and I've wanted to read this one for ages.
The two books I got for review are:
The Project by Brian Falkner
After discovering a terrible secret hidden in the most boring book in the world, Iowa fifteen-year-olds Luke and Tommy find out that members of a secret Nazi organization intend to use this information to rewrite history.
After reading Brainjack by Brian Falkner I can't wait to read this one, it looks really good. I also had a laugh at the fact that both Rebecca and me picked up the same book this week.
Genesis by Lara Morgan
Five hundred years into the future, the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the “Centrals”; the have-nots, the “Bankers”; and the fringe dwellers, the “Ferals”.
Rosie Black is a Banker. When Rosie finds an unusual box, she has no idea of the grave consequences of her discovery. A mysterious organisation wants it – and will kill to get it.
Forced to rely on two strangers, Rosie is on the run. But who can she trust? Pip, the too attractive Feral, or the secretive man he calls boss?
From Earth to Mars, Rosie must learn the secrets of the box – before it’s too late.
More science fiction for me, which I'm absolutely thrilled about. So expect more science fiction/dystopian reviews from me in the future.
Unlike Rebecca, I still have two weeks before summer holidays but after that I'll be reading way more. So expect to see me buying more books lol.
That was what we got this week, what did you guys get?
