Went on down to the good old Barnes & Noble yesterday. I’d actually thought that all big chain book stores had gone out of business (wow, I’ve been out of it), so it was a pleasant surprise to know that I can still buy overpriced books at Barnes and Nobles! Oh, the joy!
Although I walked in the door with a budget of just one book–just one, I tell you–I walked out with two books (oh, the horror), because I’m not capable of limiting myself to just one book. Why even try? But. at least I set a “budget”, otherwise I would have walked out of those doors with twenty books (and absolutely no money to my name).
I’m super excited about these two books, though! 🙂 DUALED BY ELSIE CHAPMAN
The Hunger Games meets Matched in this high-concept thriller where citizens must prove their worth by defeating the other version of themselves—their twin.
Two of you exist. Only one will survive.
West Grayer is ready. She’s trained for years to confront her Alternate, a twin raised by another family. Survival means a good job, marriage—life.
But then a tragic misstep leaves West questioning: Is she the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future?
If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from herself, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.
Fast-paced and unpredictable, Elsie Chapman’s suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a chilling, unforgettable world.
Check it out here.
Before I even knew how to work NetGalley, they pre-approved me for this book’s sequel, Divided. Somehow, I signed up to read it, but I haven’t read the first one yet! Luckily, Barnes & Noble had the first one. I already started it and, I must say, this book is pretty amazing! The cover appears a bit cheesy (yet another lesson to not judge a book by its cover), but don’t let that fool you! So far, this novel has adventure, the promise of romance, and plenty of suspense and action. I’m really excited to keep reading this one.
