Thanks to Kristi of The Story Siren for hosting this meme.
I ordered a lot of books online this week. So far, these are the ones that have arrived. Now, if someone knows the name of a site where I can order enough time to read them all, I’ll be set.
The Resistance - Gemma Malley
From book cover: The year is 2140. Peter and Anna are living as ‘legals’ but continue to rebel against the laws of the state. Impatient to see action as an agent in the Underground, Peter is tasked with infiltrating the Pincent Pharma Corporation to find out what’s going on in the secret Longevity programme.
I love speculative fiction, so they had me at ‘The year is 2140’. This one is the sequel to Malley’s fascinating debut The Declaration.
Incarceron - Catherine Fisher
From book cover: Imagine a prison so vast that it contains cells and corridors, forests, cities and seas. Imagine a prisoner with no memory, sure he came from Outside - though the prison has been sealed for centuries and only one man has ever escaped.
I hadn’t heard of this one until this week, when it was featured as a Waiting on Wednesday pick at the awesome Carrie’s YA Bookshelf. I think the summary sounds fascinating.
Children of The Dust - Louise Lawrence
From book cover: When war breaks out, the world we know is destroyed within minutes. Sarah can see no hope ahead, just a slow and painful death. But she is strong. Out of the dust a new world is born, with a new vision of the future.
This is one I’ve read before, but my copy was donated to a charity shop long ago (not by me) to 'make room for new books'. Now I have my own place, and if I need more room for books I can just throw out the furniture or something. I’m feeling the need to read this again.
Fairy Tale - Cyn Balog
Quote from book: “So, um. Some fairies want to kidnap you. Why? Do you have the one ring to rule them all?”
“They’ve come to take me home,” he says softly.
Arrived on Friday, read overnight, reviewed on Saturday (below). How beautiful is that cover?
