HUSH, HUSH BY BECCA FITZPATRICK AHH!
Yes, it's a good week.
This is actually for the Barnes and Noble First Look Club. I'd suggest joining. Now.
Second--A Circle of Souls by Preetham Grandhi for review:
(from acircleofsouls.com) The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town’s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury’s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings’s devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya’s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya’s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events
Looks good. I also got a few book-cards to go with it, with the cover on the front and a website. When I post my review, I guess I'll give a few away, if anyone wants them =P
Also, I got some oldies in the mail from Amazon; Desolation Angels by the Late Great Jack Kerouac, Life After God by Generation X author Douglas Coupland and The Realm of Possibility by Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist co-author David Levithan.
I also got: SLIGHTS BY KAARON WARREN which is awesome, Playing House by Fredrica Wagman, Gothic! by assorted authors, and Here They Come by Yannick Murphy.
ALSO, The Tear Collector by Patrick Jones
Also, I'd like to announce the upcoming DEXTER WEEK here at the Opinionated? Me? blog, in honor of the upcoming installment of the Dexter series (out in the US September 8th). I've only read the first one in the series, but I figure this is a good excuse for some good ol' fashioned fangirling. The details aren't exact yet, seeing as I have no one to consult with but myself, but I assure you it will be...not awesome, because only you guys can decide that. But I guarentee I will be as fulfilled as expected. I MIGHT even make a cute little banner thing...if I can figure out how...hm...
Anyway, have a great Sunday and pray to Buddha Monday will have some mercy!
