Books and more Books

Yesterday i just got two new books. I am very excited. Both are follow ups to a series that i really liked and i can't wait to read them both. Very Very excited. Right now i just started a bunch of book series that i really like, and i think that is good. Well here they are:

Title: Fade
Author: Lisa McMann
Pages: 248
Science Fiction YA
My Copy: Paper Back

Plot: For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They're just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck. Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody's talking. When Janie taps into a classmate's violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open - but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie's in way over her head, and Cabe's shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both. Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability - and it's bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what's to come is way darker than she'd even feared. .

Title: Don't judge a girl by her cover
Author: Ally Carter
Pages: 366
My Copy: Hard Cover
Plot: When Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept the nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnappers' plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did. Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can the Gallagher Girls keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth..


Yet To Read: It's Thrusday But I Mean't it for Wednesday-

Yet To Read: is about a book that i really really want to get into and read. It has interested me enough to say that i really want to read it and i hope i get to. The plot description is from and the prices are too.

Title: a blue so dark
Author: Holly Schindler
Pages: 288
To be published: May 1st 2010
Price: $ 9.95


Fifteen-year-old Aura Ambrose has been hiding a secret. Her mother, a talented artist and art teacher, is slowly being consumed by schizophrenia, and Aura has been her sole caretaker ever since Aura's dad left them. Convinced that "creative" equals crazy, Aura shuns her own artistic talent. But as her mother sinks deeper into the darkness of mental illness, the hunger for a creative outlet draws Aura toward the depths of her imagination. Just as desperation threatens to swallow her whole, Aura discovers that art, love, and family are profoundly linked—and together may offer an escape from her fears.

Why? just found this book today and it sounded really good. The whole artistic side and the whole life changing facts of a mental disorder. I really want to read it.

Title: Through the looking glass

Said by Tweedledee -
"Contrariwise," continued Tweedledee, "if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic."

Page: 221-222

Said by Alice and the White Queen -

"Alice Laughed. "There's no use in trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age i always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. There goes the shawl again!"

Said by Humpty Dumpty -

"If I'd meant that, I'd have said it," said Humpty Dumpty."
