Happy Birthday to Books 8/5 to 8/11

It’s getting really hot outside, so why not head on down to your nearest air-conditioned library or bookstore and chill out with a cool new book?

Wake by Amanda Hocking
(August 7, 2012, St. Martin’s Press)
Once you start getting into the story of Wake, it really picks up. You start to fall in love with all the characters. You wonder what dangers could possibly be lying around the corner. The way Amanda spun her lure was so unique and slightly frighting. And, with the way the story ended I’m dying to read Lullaby so I can find out what happens next! —Jena, Goodreads

 

The Boy Recession by Flynn Meaney
(August 7, 2012, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
I loved the trio of friends in Kelly, Darcy, and Aviva. And then the boy group with Hunter, Derek, and Eugene was great as well. I found myself physically smiling whenever Kelly and Hunter got together. Those were definitely the best scenes in the book, the lightest moments, the most humorous parts. A cute book, with adorable characters. Recommended for summer beach reading! –Chelsea, Goodreads

 

Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
(August 7, 2012, Doherty, Tom Associates, LLC)
In Anna Dressed in Blood, the plot was creepy and horrific. In Girl of Nightmares, it is turned up a notch. Although it may be a tad less creepy, I felt much more afraid in this one; it has a more serious, all encompassing tone. The vibe is more sinister and the scary parts are downright terrifying. Let’s just say, things get pretty out-of-hand-serious. I loved it. I’ve been a fan of horror my whole life and while I truly enjoyed the first book, I completely fell in love with its sequel! –Giselle, Xpresso Reads

 

Rift by Andrea Cremer
(August 7, 2012, Penguin Young Readers Group)
Rift reminded me of Angelfire because both the main characters wielded cool weapons and had hotties helping them fight. I think that readers of Angelfire and Cremer’s previous series will really enjoy Rift because it’s action packed, has a great romance in it, and will make you want more. –Danna, Bananas for Books
