The Voice by Jennifer Anne Davi YA Contemporary novel Publication date: January 29th, 2013 *** During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice.

About the book,

Tentative release date; March of 2013

*** Calendar year 2081. Our planet has finally succumbed to Global Warming.

Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few thousand people to survive Global Warming Ignition, has come to the conclusion that the destruction of our planet and society had been due to Injudicious Breeding which lead (in his opinion) to over population, WAR, unnatural climate changes, lower intelligence, poor physical health, poverty, lust and greed.

~ Nature Versus Nurture ~

Some 200 years later Dr. Smith’s descendants have maintained control of th…

You know... There comes a time when you think the world is ending because something extraordinarily weird happened...

But then... there comes a time when you're 99.9% sure that the world has INDEED ended because what happened is most likely impossible -_-
Well my beautiful people... The latter is what I felt when I went to a local bookstore and saw... BOOKS actual YA books that while not new releases, you might as well treat them as that since they take MILLIONS of days to even bring one!! LET ALONE ALL THE ONES I SAW!!!! T____T
I wanted to take them all!! Because of course this miracle came with a catch... and that's... They ALWAYS ALWAYS bring so FEW!! As in one or at the most... 2 copies of each book which, if you ask me, is kind of ridiculo…

-Blog Tour Stop Excerpt&Giveaway- Normalish by Margaret Lesh

Image
Hello there!
The Normalish blog tour stops here today!!
I have an excerpt to share plus a giveaway so let's get the party started, shall we?

But first, lets read a bit about the book.
**********

Normalish by Margaret Lesh
Release Date: October 5th 2012 / Musa Publishing Euterpe Young Adult imprint Fifteen-year-old Stacy questions the strange world of high school, love, her role in a harsh universe, and life, in Normalish.

People tell you high school's so great and wonderful, but they're lying. It's mostly horrible and full of disappointment. It sucks. Your best friend abandons you. The jerk you're in love with pretends to be into you, and then the big dump. The boy you've really clicked with as a friend decides to go all crushy over you, so you break his heart just like yours was -- smashed into little pieces. Your sister goes mental, and you get involved with a guy who’s even crazier than she is (who you know is a very bad idea, but you do it anyway). Math only …

-BookPics is Curious- A Book Depository Miracle?

Well well well!!
WELL!!

Would you look at that...
Last week a local friend came up with the idea of making a page to ask The Book Depository to ship to our country -El Salvador-

-The Story-
We've struggled so long to get books, I know we're not the only country that needs it but most of the friends I've made in the blogosphere and the bookish friends I've made in this awesome community were lucky enough to be on the 'countries we ship' list from theBookDepo...

I, for one, know that I drool at the sight of books, I cannot control myself when it comes to them...
So when I first found out about the famous BookDepo site I was thrilled! Ecstatic! I wanted to scream my lungs out that I'd finally found a place where I would be able to get, if not all, at least some of the books that I pin for on a daily basis...

Not long after I started blogging I 'met' some local bookish people and was excited to know that I had found people who loved boo…

Reveal (Cryptid Tales #1)
Blurb:
Shay could be the key to ending a war that humans don't know exist. Of a race of beings that aren't real, or are they?

Shay Tafford's childhood has been fatherless, filled instead with memories of speaking to the dead. She is forced to hide her unique ability from those living around her. That's why it's been comforting to have Jeremy, a child ghost, as her confidante. But recently he's been absent, perhaps lost as her father is. When Shay meets Hugh, the guy she's had a crush on for weeks, and finds he can speak to ghosts too she's just starting to find a normalcy in her life.

But as Hugh reveals the truth to Shay, about who she really is and about what it is she can do, he erases all chances she had …
