I noticed this blog post today on Reviewer X and thought it was brilliant.
"Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I daresay it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to come out, and get into our hands. I have decided to participate because I have a list that can go on forever and ever and it is interesting to see what else others are "waiting" for. So, here goes...

My pick for this week: INTERTWINED by Gena Showalter

TBA
(LATE 2009 or EARLY 2010)
Intertwined
A new YA series

There’s something about the new guy at Crossroads High . . .

Most sixteen-year-olds have friends. Aden Stone has four human souls living inside him:

One can time-travel.
One can raise the dead.
One can tell the future.
And one can possess another human.

With no other family and a life spent in and out of institutions, Aden and the souls have become friends. But now, they’re causing him all kinds of trouble.

Like, he’ll blink and suddenly he’s a younger Aden, reliving the past. One wrong move, and he’ll change the future. Or, he’ll walk past a total stranger and know how and when she’s going to die.

He’s so over it. All he wants is peace.

And then he meets a girl who quiets the voices. Well, for as long as he’s with her. Why? Mary Ann Gray is his total opposite. He’s a loner; she has friends. He doesn’t care what anyone thinks; she tries to make everyone happy. And while he attracts the paranormal, she repels it. For her sake, he should stay away. But it’s too late. . .

Somehow, they share an inexplicable bond of friendship. A bond about to be tested by a werewolf shape-shifter who wants Mary Ann for his own and a vampire princess Aden can’t resist. Two romances, both forbidden. . . doomed. Still, the four will enter a dark underworld of intrigue and danger. . . but not everyone will come out alive. . .

I know that it will be a long while before this novel comes out, but since I read about it last month. It is all I keep thinking about. Doesn't it sound awesome? How could you not want to read it.

  4. I know that I have so many books that I wish I had more time in my day to read them all. I find that I am always with a book tucked under my arm, or in my car, purse, locker....LOL!! Yet, I do not mind in the least.

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
