Added to the Bookshelf – 5/12/13

Posted May 12, 2013 by Melissa in IMM, In My Mailbox, Showcase Sunday | 62 Comments

Sharing the week’s bookish news and the books & bookish goodies that I’ve bought, borrowed, won, or been gifted and have added to my bookshelves over the past week!

(Inspired by Mailbox Monday, IMM, Clock Rewinders and the like)

Notes From Melissa:

Spring has finally really sprung around here!  I can’t wait until next weekend to get some gardening done!!  Do you have any gardening plans?

This weekend has been busy with a Baptism yesterday and today we are hosting for 
Mother’s Day!

  So I’ve been tweaking the blog a bit this week…  Have you noticed?  I’ve added a jump break so I can show 6 posts on the homepage rather than three and it still looks a bit neater and cleaner.  I’ve also changed  the sub-headings (The Book, The Author, The Giveaway, etc) within my posts to match the ones I use here in this weekly post (ie. The Notes From Melissa, etc)..and I tweaked my blockquote.  What do you guys think? Do you like the jump breaks…or would you rather see the whole posts on the home page?

      Unremembered – Jessica Brody

      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 compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

      For Review:

      Tumble & Fall – Alexandra Coutts

      A novel about the end of days full of surprising beginnings.The world is living in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week’s time; catastrophe is unavoidable.

      The question isn’t how to save the world—the question is, what to do with the time that’s left? Against this stark backdrop, three island teens wrestle with intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.

      Alexandra Coutts’s TUMBLE & FALL is a powerful story of courage, love, and hope at the end of the world.

      Everblue (Mer Tales #1) –
      Among the Nameless Stars (For Darkness Shows the Stars 0.5)  
      Existence (Existence Trilogy #1)  
      Death Comes Home (In Darkness We Must Abide #1) –  

      That’s all for me this week!

        Unremembered sounds really cool – maybe like a bookish Lost? I am intrigued. I think I need to find myself a copy of this one.

        Enjoy your goodies!
