together on Twitter to organise one of our own. Summaries are taken from the

B Smith turns her back on Dr Oystein and strikes out alone, she is shocked to
meet the baby from her nightmares – a strange, sexless, zombie baby...
come within sight of the baby and I freeze. I feel the walls of reality
crumbling around me, the world tilting on its axis, the fingers of a nightmare
reaching out to grab me.
baby is dressed in a long, white christening gown. Its face is a stiff mask,
like a cross between a human’s and a doll’s, but there’s nothing human about
its mouth and eyes. The small mouth is open, fully of tiny, sharp teeth. Its
eyes are pure white balls, no pupils...
not real,’ I croak.
I’ve already read this - review up on Monday! Thanks S&S!
Crash Into You – Katie

streak, a street smart guy with nothing to lose, and a romance forged in the

her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers...and she’s just added two more to
the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang
GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker – a guy she has no business
even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes
comes to her rescue, she can’t get him out of her mind. Isaiah has secrets too.
About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel.
last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it
on the south side for kicks – no matter how angelic she might look. But when

six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they’ll
go to save each other.
Man, I love Katie McGarry’s

Pawn – Aimee
you more than a number on the back of your neck?
Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III
in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people
she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the
she says yes, Kitty will be Masked – surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the

the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first
time, she will matter.
only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered.
The same one that got her killed...and one Kitty believes in. Faced with

only beginning to understand.

Austenland – Shannon
is a young New York woman who can never seem to find the right man – perhaps
because of her secret obsession with Mr Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the
BBC adaptation of Pride
and Prejudice. When a wealthy relative
bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women,
however, Jane’s fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly
become more real than she ever could have imagined. Is this total immersion in
a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or
could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr Darcy of her own?

Attachments – Rainbow
1999 and for the staff of one newspaper office, the internet is still a
novelty. By day, two young women, Beth and Jennifer, spend their hours emailing
each other, discussing in hilarious detail every aspect of their lives, from
love troubles to family dramas. And by night, Lincoln, a shy, lonely IT guy
spends his hours reading every exchange. At first their emails offer a welcome
diversion, but as Lincoln unwittingly becomes drawn into their lives, the more
he reads, the more he finds himself falling for one of them. By the time
Lincoln realizes just how head-over-heels he really is, it’s way too late to
introduce himself. What would he say to her? ‘Hi, I’m the guy who reads your
email – and also, I think I love you.’ After a series of close encounters,
Lincoln decides it’s time to muster the courage to follow his heart...and find
out whether there is such a thing as love before first sight.
