This meme was started by the fabulous Kristi who was inspired by Alea. Check out their blogs for more information. All summaries are from the book jackets.
I went home last weekend and had plenty of packages waiting for me. I decided that I would put them into an IMM this weekend, but I forgot to write them down so only the ones I brought back to Bath will be included.
Torn – Cat Clarke
Four girls. One dead body.
A whole lot of guilt.
Alice King isn’t expecting the holiday of a lifetime when she sets off with her classmates on a trip to the Scottish wilderness, but she’s not exactly prepared for an experience beyond her darkest nightmares...
Alice and her best friend Cass are stuck in a cabin with Polly, the social outcast, and Rae, the moody emo-girl. Then there’s Tara – queen of mean. Powerful, beautiful and cruel, she likes nothing better than putting people down.
Cass decides it’s time to teach Tara a lesson she’ll never forget. And so begins a series of events that will change the lives of these girls forever...
Squee! I loved Entangled so I’m beyond excited for this. Thanks, Quercus!
Fracture – Megan Miranda (ARC)
By the time 17-year old Delaney Maxwell is pulled out of the icy waters of a frozen lake, her heart has stopped beating. She is officially dead. Then Delaney starts breathing... The doctors are mystified. But Delaney knows something is very wrong, even though outwardly she has completely recovered.
Pulled by sensations she can’t control, Delaney now finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her brain predicting death or causing it? Then Delaney meets Troy Varga. Is Troy a kindred spirit who somehow understands her weird and frightening gift? Or are his motives more chillingly sinister...
Love the sound of this. Thanks, Bloomsbury!
The Vampire Stalker – Allison van Dieppen
Amy is in love with Alexadner Banks. In fact, she’s obsessed with him. He’s brooding and handsome. He hunts vampires.
The only problem is, Alexander doesn’t exist. He’s a character in a book.
But, what if he showed up one day? What if he were somehow real?
Man, how many times have I wished fictional characters to life...? Thanks, Scholastic!
The Book of Blood and Shadow – Robin Wasserman (ARC)
From Amazon: It was like a nightmare, but there was no waking up. When the night began, Nora had two best friends and a boyfriend she adored. When it ended, she had nothing but blood on her hands. Chris was dead. Adriane couldn't speak. And Max, Nora's sweet, smart, soft-spoken Prince Charming, was gone. He was also—according to the police, according to her parents, according to everyone—a murderer. Desperate to prove his innocence, Nora's determined to follow the trail of blood, no matter where it leads. But Chris's murder is just one piece in a puzzle that spans continents and centuries. Solving it may be the only way she can save her own life.
Really excited for this and I get to take part in a blog tour for it in January. Thanks, Atom!
This is Not Forgiveness – Celia Rees (ARC)
She’s beautiful, impulsive.
He wanted her to notice him.
Can’t believe she did.
Back from Afghanistan. Wounded.
Secretive. Out of reach.
Except with Caro. He lets her in.
Over the course of one summer, their lives collide and entwine with dangerous results.
The brightest flame always leave the deepest scars.
So looking forward to this – I've never read Celia Rees before! Thanks, Bloomsbury.
