Ahhh, a much lighter week this time around. Only two books, but I am very, very pumped for both of them
Ghost Huntress Book 2: The Guidance by Marley Gibson
Release Date: September 7, 2009 from Graphia
Kendall and her ghost hunting team is the talk of Radisson, Georgia, but one person isn’t so pleased. Courtney Langdon doesn’t appreciate Kendall’s new popularity or her relationship with Jason, Courtney’s ex.
So Courtney begins dabbling in the paranormal world. At first it’s all a game to draw attention away from Kendall. But Courtney doesn’t know what she’s getting into—or what wants in her. This is one game that’s about to turn deadly serious.
I really liked the first book in this series, so I am super-excited to read this one. Apparently, Marley also has a teen non-fiction book coming out in September, which is called The Other Side: A Teen's Guide to Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. It sounds pretty cool, too.
And last, but most definitely not least,
The Hate List by Jennifer Brown
Release Date: September 1, 2009 from Little, Brown Young Readers
Five months ago, Valerie Leftman's boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets.
Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with the tragedy that took place and her role in it, in order to make amends and move on with her life.
YAY!!! I'm sooo excited for this one. It was a WOW post for me and I was thrilled to get it in the mail. Plus, Jennifer is from the Kansas City area, which is totally cool. Maybe we'll actually have a cool book signing sometime in the near future. Fingers crossed.
So, that is it for me this week. I do want to say thank you to everyone who has given me awards this week. In the madness to reorganize my mess of a room, I lost my list of awards, but I really appreciate all of them and I think you all rock.
Thank you soooooo much and I can't wait to see what everyone got in their mailboxes.
