I just got back from a 2 1/2 week road trip around the Southwestern States. Unfortunately, I didn't get much reading done.
But here are some books that I'm looking forward to reading in the next few weeks:
Don't Look Now (Persefone Trilogy #2) by Michelle Gagnon (HarperCollins hardcover, 27 August 2013).
Noa Torsen is on the run. Having outsmarted the sinister Project
Persephone, Noa and her friend Zeke now move stealthily across the
country, protecting runaways before they become test subjects for the
Project’s horrific experiments. Noa knows all too well what that feels
like: Whatever was done to her has left her exhausted and scared.
Back in Boston, Peter anxiously follows Noa’s movements from his
computer, using his hacker skills to feed her the information she needs
to stay alive. But he’s desperate to do something more, especially when
he learns what the Project has done to his ex-girlfriend, Amanda.
Then, in an explosive confrontation, Noa and her team are trapped in the
one place they thought was safe. It will take everything Noa and Peter
have to bring down the Project before it gets them first. And with no
one to trust and enemies hiding at every turn, they may be the only
people alive who can.
Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young (Simon Pulse hardcover, 27 August 2013).
Her grandmother is sick, maybe
dying. Like the rest of her family, Caroline’s been at Gram’s bedside
since the stroke. With the pressure building, all Caroline wants to do
is escape—both her family and the reality of Gram’s failing health. So
when Caroline’s best friend offers to take her to a party one fateful
Friday night, she must choose: Stay by Gram’s side for what might be her
final hours, or go to the party and live her life.
consequences of this one decision will split Caroline’s fate into two
separate paths—and she is about to live them both. And though there are
two distinct ways for her fate to unfold, there is only one happy
The Beginning of Everything by Robin Schneider (Katherine Tegen hardcover, 27 August 2013).
Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for
them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will
happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it
all: In one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra's knee,
his athletic career, and his social life.
No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the
table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy
is unlike anyone Ezra's ever met—achingly effortless and fiercely
Together, Ezra and Cassidy discover flash mobs, buried treasure, and a
poodle that might just be the reincarnation of Jay Gatsby. But as Ezra
dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns
that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must
consider: If one's singular tragedy has already hit, what happens when
more misfortune strikes?
