Here's my pick for this week (which was technically last week's pick for when I was at BEA but my scheduled posts never went up - womp womp) anyways:
Release Date: July 30th, 2013
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. Tavia will soon discover that she’s an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.
''The ability to create matter out of nothing.'' That single sentence got my attention. And then they threw in 'evil secret societies' and that was that - I was hooked! Being the sole survivor in a horrific plane crash and the fact that her past is hidden to her makes me really want to tag along for the ride when the MC Tavia starts piecing everything together! And of course, that cover is simply stunning. Does anyone else see the resemblance between the girl pictured and the actress who played Hermione in the Harry Potter movies - Emma Watson, or is it just me?!
Are you excited about Earthbound?
