Book Mail, Come Forth

Posted March 10, 2013 by Stephanie in General / 0 Comments

Now is the moment in time that I show you some book mail. Most of these haven’t actually arrived yet but I’m definitely looking forward to them. Let me know what you think!

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high.
Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and
citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their
twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job,
marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a
fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will
have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep
shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer
certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a
future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running
not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the
power to destroy her.

Elsie Chapman’s suspenseful YA debut weaves
unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and
thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will
begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and
every child knows there is another out there who just might be better.

* You can read my review of Dualed.

A magical game of Hide n Seek begins.
Find the missing player and win.
The game resets; everyone forgets and starts to play it again.

Starr
Hughes hasn’t believed in magic since her mother died. As a reporter
for the school paper, she believes in hard facts. Hiding under the
headmaster’s desk, planting bugs, and breaking into a fellow student’s
home are all on her to-do list. So when she hears the mysterious group
known as the It-Squad are about to start playing a secretive game, she
wants to know more. She’s especially interested in the group’s gorgeous
leader, Dylan Winchester.

With her boy-crazy best friend at her
side, Starr is going to discover that not only are witches real, they
need her help. Someone is using the game to steal their memories, their
powers, and perhaps their lives.

I’ve read a few of Blake’s novels and enjoyed them, so I’m interested to see what she does with this one.

The next few books are actually a mystery. I won a book bundle from Epic Reads on Twitter this past Wednesday and they were offering several different bundles. I’m hoping for Shards and Ashes. (Look at that cover, people.)


Gripping original stories of
dystopian worlds from nine New York Times bestselling authors, edited by
Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong.

The world is gone, destroyed
by human, ecological, or supernatural causes. Survivors dodge chemical
warfare and cruel gods; they travel the reaches of space and inhabit
underground caverns. Their enemies are disease, corrupt corporations,
and one another; their resources are few, and their courage is tested.

Powerful
original dystopian tales from nine bestselling authors offer bleak
insight, prophetic visions, and precious glimmers of light among the
shards and ashes of a ruined world.
