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.

For Review:

Blood Ransom - Sophie McKenzie

Clones Rachel and Theo now live thousands of miles apart. They keep in touch regularly via the internet, but things just aren’t the same.

When Rachel discovers that evil scientist Elijah is still working in secret for a section on the government and about to murder Daniel, she sets out to rescue the little boy, but her plans backfire with disastrous consequences.

Across the Atlantic, Theo quickly becomes suspicious when Rachel misses their weekly internet chat. He discovers a report online saying she’s killed herself and travels to Scotland to find her, certain that she’s been kidnapped. A clue leads him to Elijah’s mysterious clinic, where the sinister Aphrodite Experiment is underway. But why does Elijah need to track Rachel down so badly? And what is the ultimate raonsom that he demands for her?

A big thanks to S&S for this as I’ve heard really amazing things about the first book, Blood Ties.


I know I said that I was going to treat myself this week, but I’ve been getting tonnes of uni stuff instead. An Mockingjay was more than enough of a treat, anyway!

Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

From Goodreads: Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge...This thrilling final instalment of this ground-breaking trilogy promises to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
