“No one crosses the wall of light . . . except for one girl who doesn’t remember who she is, where she came from, or how she survived.” This sounds like an intense thriller with some mystery thrown in. I have been promised fantastic world building, so Arclight is definitely near the top of my pile!
“There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday.” Taken sounds a bit like The Knife of Never Letting Go, wherein there are no women in the protagonist’s town. I’m dying to read this one!
“Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory may be measured in blood.” I just need to finish this book! I wanted to read A Storm of Swords before the show started up again, but I doubt that will happen. We will see.
“The perfect soldier is done taking orders.” Well, the main character sounds like a badass and this is a science fiction. I am so there.
“It happened on Halloween. The world ended. And a dangerous Game brought it back to life.” Two brothers – Michael and Patrick – battle monsters in The Game. Guys. OMG.
“Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.” Pretty much everyone has read this already, and they have LOVED it. I’m dying to get to it, so I’m hoping to fit it in between a couple of review books soon. Crossing my fingers.
“Overnight, it’s as if her past has been rewritten.” I looooooove parallel universes and alternate realities, so YES PLEASE.
“Plenty of teenagers feel invisible. Fiona McClean actually is.” Fiona is being forced to spy and steal by her father. If I could pick one superpower, I would pick invisibility. Fiona is basically living my dream. And yes, I did perhaps just admit I would spy on people, but no one’s going to tell on me, right?
“How do you know where to go when you don’t remember where you came from?” I read and loved Slated when it came out in the UK last year, so I can’t wait to read this and see what happens to Kyla.
“Fourteen kids. One superstore. A million things that go wrong.” This is coming out in the UK very soon, and I was lucky enough to get a review copy. It’s an apocalyptic novel about a group of teens and kids who are taking refuge in a mall. I’m so excited for this!
