Tynga's Reviews to showcase all the books we got in the past week. Those can be bought, won, gifted, for review, borrowed, print or ebooks... no matter, just share what you got :)
This was another slow week, which I guess is good! It's not like I have a lack of reading material :P
Free on smaswords:
Remembrance, by Michelle Madow
I've been curious about this series for a while, so when I got the author's newsletter with a code to enter on smashwords for a free copy, I jumped at the opportunity! I'm not sure that option's still on, but I remember that she also posted about that on her facebook page, including the code, so you might want to check that.
Here's the synopsis:
Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.
Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of
the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him.
She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with
him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he
wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult
because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of
himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and
her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his
arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?
Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.
Won in print:
With All My Soul, by Rachel Vincent
I won this copy from the wonderful Rachel from Fiktshun. It's for her mini-reading challenge that you can find out more about if you click the button in my left sidebar. I'm both excited and scared to start this book. It's the conclusion to the Soul Screamers series and I just... I love it so much, and I'm sad it's ending but also dying to know how!
What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It's time to kick some hellion butt...
not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as
survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the
hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the
incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to
protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.
then she meets Wrath and understands that she's closer to the edge than
she's ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee
realizes she can't save everyone she loves without risking everything
That's already it from me! As you might have read in my last post, I'm attending a writing workshop with L.A. Weatherly (author of the Angel Trilogy) this weekend and I'm super excited! I hope it will give me a boost to really tackle revisions of my finished draft. It will also absorb my attention, so I won't be around Twitter and the blog much this weekend.
Anyhow, what do you guys think of the books I got, and what pretties did you get during the week?
