Yes, I'm aware that I fail. But yesterday was my birthday and I was ridiculously busy with book camp and I had a henna workshop and then aikido...so I couldn't post anything.
is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Today I'm going to mention two books that have been very popular these past couple of weeks in contests and reviews!
Candor by Pam Bachorz
"Oscar Banks has everything under control. In a town
where his father brainwashes everyone, he's found a way
to secretly fight the subliminal Messages. He's got them
all fooled: Oscar's the top student and the best-behaved
teen in town. Nobody knows he's made his own Messages
to deprogram his brain. Oscar has even found a way to
get rich. For a hefty price, he helps new kids escape
Candor, Florida before they're transformed into
cookie-cutter teens. But then Nia Silva moves to Candor,
and Oscar's carefully-controlled world crumbles."
Release Date: September 22, 2009
I can't wait to read this one! It looks really interesting and the reviews I've seen of it make it sound amaztastic!
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
"For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life."
Release Date: October 13, 2009
I heard of this one from a review and I'm looking very forward to reading it. I'm kind of sad that I have to wait until OCTOBER to get it.
