So this week I have some great books but they are a complete mixed bag. I'm posting this a little early because tomorrow is the first day of NaNoWriMo and I want to try to limit my distractions.
Random Magic by Sasha Soren
Yes, my book for the blog tour arrived and I was so excited and relieved to finally have it in my hands. I'm up to Chapter 5.
You can read my author interview with Sasha here.
I also posted some fun extras here. The review will follow soon.
A sacred oath, a fallen angel, a forbidden love...This darkly romantic story features our heroine, Nora Grey, a seemingly normal teenage girl with her own shadowy connection to the Nephilim, and super-alluring bad boy, Patch, now her deskmate in biology class. Together they find themselves at the centre of a centuries-old feud between a fallen angel and a Nephilim...Forced to sit next to Patch in science class, Nora attempts to resist his flirting, though gradually falls for him against her better judgment. Meanwhile creepy things are going on with a mysterious stalker following her car, breaking into her house and attacking her best friend, Vi. Nora suspects Patch, but there are other suspects too - not least a new boy who has transferred from a different college after being wrongly accused of murdering his girlfriend. And he seems to have taken a shine to Nora...Love certainly is dangerous...and someone is going to have to make the ultimate sacrifice for it.
Bought from the used book store:
Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson
I saw a revew of this on a blog but I can't remember which one. Anyway, it was a really interesting review so when I saw it I thought oooh, I should buy that!
17 year old Tyler is totally enjoying his position as high school Alpha male, after years of being 'the geek'. But then Bethany Milbury - rich, blonde, beautiful and the girl Tyler wants - is the victim in a teenage sex scandal, and somehow Tyler is nailed as the prime suspect. Tyler knows he had nothing to do with it, but when everyone - including his hard-nosed father - believes he did, Tyler starts to spiral into a nightmarish, paranoid state of mind. He is desperate to find a way out of the mess he's in... Will he have the courage not to take the easy option?
So this is what's in my mailbox, what's in yours? Are you signed up to NaNoWriMo? Feeling optimistic?
