Spotlight Friday (67)

Hey, what’s up friends?  It’s been a long week of homework, now that midterms are approaching, but I promise I have a review coming.  And also, I saw Beautiful Creatures on Thursday!  Who else saw that?  Don’t be afraid to leave comments at the bottom!

Unremembered (Unremembered, #1) by Jessica Brody

Release Date: March 5, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads)When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author, Jessica Brody comes a mesmerizing and suspenseful new series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

What’s To Like: I’ve read stuff like Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac and this sounds kind of along that line, but with more of a potentially supernatural element to it, which I really like.  I think this will be a very interesting read.  I wonder who the boy is…

Strands of Bronze and Gold (Strands of Bronze and Gold, #1) by Jane Nickerson

Release Date: March 12, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads): When seventeen-year-old Sophia Petheram’s beloved father dies, she receives an unexpected letter. An invitation—on fine ivory paper, in bold black handwriting—from the mysterious Monsieur Bernard de Cressac, her godfather. With no money and fewer options, Sophie accepts, leaving her humble childhood home for the astonishingly lavish Wyndriven Abbey, in the heart of Mississippi.

Sophie has always longed for a comfortable life, and she finds herself both attracted to and shocked by the charm and easy manners of her overgenerous guardian. But as she begins to piece together the mystery of his past, it’s as if, thread by thread, a silken net is tightening around her. And as she gathers stories and catches whispers of his former wives—all with hair as red as her own—in the forgotten corners of the abbey, Sophie knows she’s trapped in the passion and danger of de Cressac’s intoxicating world.

Glowing strands of romance, mystery, and suspense are woven into this breathtaking debut—a thrilling retelling of the “Bluebeard” fairy tale.

What’s To Like: Even though I have no idea what the Bluebeard fairy tale is (does it have anything to do with the pirate?), I’m still interested.  I love that there’s this mysterious guardian who’s rich as a king, it seems, and Sophie has to figure out what’s going on.  Should be a delightful journey!

My review of Strands of Bronze and Gold

Will All My Soul (Soul Screamers, #7) by Rachel Vincent

Release Date: March 19, 2013

*Series Spoilers In Summary!*

Summary (from Goodreads): What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It’s time to kick some hellion butt…

After 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.

But 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 she has….

What’s To Like: This is one series that I’ve been following for years, ever since the first book came out.  I’ve obsessed over it, read every single novella that had to do with it, and generally fallen in love with it and the characters.  Now, it’s all coming to an end.  And while I definitely think it’s time for this series to end, I’m going to miss it as well.  Here’s hoping it goes out with a bang!
