Books I received today

Hello everybody!

I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA but I’ve got a valid reason  (or so I keep telling myself so I don’t feel guilty).

I’ve been to camp with my class – I know! Nature… Ugh *shivers* – and then I’ve been getting ready for prom which was a few days ago. Aaand theeeen my class and I went to an amusement park which is a few hours away from where we live so I’ve been occupied the whole week. It isn’t all sad though, I got to do some reading while I didn’t blog (silver lining there people). What I want to say is that you’ll be getting alot of reviews within the next couple of days 😉

Enough with the boring stuff because now I’ll show YOU what books I received today.

I ordered two books before I went to camp and those books were Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon and Don’t look back by one of my favorite authors Jennifer L Armentrout. I got them today and I can’t wait to dive right into them.

 

17745703          DOON…

Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.

But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.

Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for…or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

I ordered this book because the premise promises originality. A Scotland-based setting with time travel and fantasy elements? Are you kidding me? Gimme that immediately.

Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

 

Okay the actual book cover doesn’t move – if it did it would be awesome – it’s frozen where the mirror is broken, but I loved that it moved so I picked this one to show you. Doesn’t it sound amazing? I will be reading this one first since I’m in the mood for mystery and the synopsis is really good. As soon as I’m done, I’ll write and post the review.
