Here’s what I got this week.
||The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Mackie Doyle seems like everyone else in the perfect little town of Gentry, but he is living with a fatal secret – he is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now the creatures under the hill want him back, and Mackie must decide where he really belongs and what he really wants.
A month ago, Mackie might have told them to buzz off. But now, with a budding relationship with tough, wounded, beautiful Tate, Mackie has too much to lose. Will love finally make him worthy of the human world? – Goodreads.com
||Dust City by Robert Paul Weston
Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?
His son, that’s who.
Ever since his father’s arrest for the murder of Little
Red Riding Hood, teen wolf Henry Whelp has kept
a low profile in a Home for Wayward Wolves . . .
until a murder at the Home leads Henry to believe
his father may have been framed.
Now, with the help of his kleptomaniac roommate,
Jack, and a daring she-wolf named Fiona, Henry will
have to venture deep into the heart of Dust City: a
rundown, gritty metropolis where fairydust is craved
by everyone—and controlled by a dangerous mob of
Water Nixies and their crime boss leader, Skinner.
Can Henry solve the mystery of his family’s sinister
past? Or, like his father before him, is he destined
for life as a big bad wolf? – Goodreads.com
||Sapphique by Catherine Fisher
This is Incarceron Book 2, as well as my second copy. Does anyone have a copy of Incarceron they are willing to swap with this one? If so, email me.
Incarceron (Incarceron, Book 1)
Incarceron — a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology — a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber — chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison — a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device — a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. – Goodreads.com
Virals by Kathy Reichs
A new series: “young adult forensic thrillers with a touch of fantasy”, the Viral books will feature Tory Brennan, the 14-year-old great-nephew of Reichs’ adult series character, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Tory is one of five teenagers living on an isolated island who, after a veterinary experiment goes wrong, are left with heightened powers of smell, sight and hearing, increased memory, and improved strength and speed. These powers are triggered by strong emotions and cannot be called upon at will. – Goodreads.com
What Is Left the Daughter by Howard Norman
Seventeen-year-old Wyatt Hillyer is suddenly orphaned when his parents, within hours of each other, jump off two different bridges—the result of their separate involvements with the same compelling neighbor, a Halifax switchboard operator and aspiring actress. The suicides cause Wyatt to move to small-town Middle Economy to live with his uncle, aunt, and ravishing cousin Tilda. – Goodreads.com
I didn’t know this was coming and I can honestly say I probably will NOT read this. If anyone is genuinely interested in this please email me.
That’s what I got. 🙂 I can’t wait to read a few of these. What did you get? Did you read these yet? What did you think?
