For review:

The Gardener - SA Bodeen (ARC)

Be careful what you wish for…

Mason has never known his father, but longs to. All he has of him is a DVD of a man whose face is never seen, reading a children’s book. One day, on a whim, he plays the DVD for a group of comatose teens at the nursing home where his mother works. One of them, a beautiful girl, responds. She is part of a horrible experiment intended to render teenagers into genetically engineered, self-sustaining life-forms who don’t need food or water to survive. And before he knows it, Mason is on the run with the girl, and wanted, dead or alive, by the mysterious mastermind of this evil plan, who is simply called the Gardener.

Will Mason be forced to destroy the thing he’s longed for most?

Thanks to Feiwell and Friends for this. I’m very excited to read it ; it sounds amazing.


Shadows: A Dark Touch Novel - Amy Meredith

Fifteen-year-old Eve Evergold is cute, sassy and enjoying a busy socil life. What she doesn’t know yet is that someone close to her is an evil demon that only she has the supernatural power to defeat.

She needs to work out who it is - and fast. Because although there’s something very attractive about the dark side…dating a demon?

Pure hell.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox - Mary E Pearson

I used to be someone.
Someone named Jenna Fox.

A girl wakes from a coma following a devastating accident, her memory a blank. One day she can’t walk; the next she can. One day her right eyelid droops; the next it doesn’t. Her parents call her recovery a miracle - but at what cost has it come? What are they hiding from her?

Who is Jenna Fox?

These were both from my Dad instead of an Easter egg. Good exchange I think!
