Here's my pick for this week:
Release Date: August 27th, 2013
Author: Francesca Lia Block
Seventeen-year-old Penelope (Pen) has lost everything—her home, her parents, and her ten-year-old brother. Like a female Odysseus in search of home, she navigates a dark world full of strange creatures, gathers companions and loses them, finds love and loses it, and faces her mortal enemy.
In her signature style, Francesca Lia Block has created a world that is beautiful in its destruction and as frightening as it is lovely. At the helm is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.
That brief little write-up there has already brought on the feels. And I love a story where and MC sets off traveling, with no destination and ends up having an life-changing adventure! Love in the Time of Global Warming sounds like an offbeat, thrilling and emotional ride, though I'm honestly not sure what to expect beyond that. I'm particularly curious about those 'strange creatures' the blurb mentions...especially since this book's tag words include: magical-realism, sci-fi, fantasy & dystopia. Yeah, this is me --> :D
