I was as happy as some weird school-girl to log on yesterday and see that I had reached the triple digits in followers! I'm not one for touchy-feely thanks and stuff, so instead I'll just say: Thanks a lot for following my blog. It really means a lot to me.
So, I promised you guys a 100 follower contest-but I figured that 103 followers was even better. Why? 3 books! So I made a stop at Books A Million and picked up some awesome looking books for you guys. I haven't read them, so I can't give you my opinion, but I really wanted to thank you guys in the best way possible. Here they are:
(Hardcover, 383 pages) Fern communicates with her dog, blisters from just moments in the sun, and has correctly predicted the daily weather for more than two years. Even so, she's always seemed to be a normal twelve-year-old girl . . . until one day when Fern closes her eyes in class and opens them seconds later on a sandy beach miles away from school. When Fern disappears again, this time to a place far more dangerous, she begins to realize exactly how different she is. With the help of her twin brother, Sam, Fern struggles to gain control of her supernatural powers. The arrival of a sinister vampire in town—who seems to have an alarming interest in Fern's powers—causes Fern to question her true identity. Who is she? More importantly, who can she count on? Soon Fern finds herself in the middle of a centuries-old battle—one that could destroy Fern and endanger everyone she loves.
(Paperback, 195 Pages) Eleven-year-old Linnet is growing wings. Auburn wings, with soft feathers. For a while, she can hide them, but they grow larger and larger, almost seeming to take on a life of their own-while taking away Linnet's old life. Her mother, Sarah, knows what it feels like . . . almost. For when the young Sarah began to grow wings, her mother-Linnet's grandmother-cut them off. Sarah is a "cutwing." She swore that she would let her own daughter's wings grow when the time came, but now that it's actually happening, she has no idea what to do. And Linnet-lost, confused, fledgling Linnet-doesn't either. . . .
(Paperback, 374 Pages) Sixteen-year-old Macy Queen is looking forward to a long, boring summer. Her boyfriend is going away. She’s stuck with a dull-asdishwater job at the library. And she’ll spend all of her free time studying for the SATs or grieving silently with her mother over her father’s recent unexpected death. But everything changes when Macy is corralled into helping out at one of her mother’s open house events, and she meets the chaotic Wish Catering crew. Before long, Macy joins the Wish team. She loves everything about the work and the people. But the best thing about Wish is Wes—artistic, insightful, and understanding Wes—who gets Macy to look at life in a whole new way, and really start living it….
