The Gist (from Amanda Marrone herself):
Megan’s twin sister Remy died in an accident nine years ago, and she’s been haunting her ever since. Knowing how crazy that sounds, Megan keeps this secret to herself and tries to lead a normal life. But when she takes a summer job at Land of Enchantment to keep an eye on her new boyfriend and his lovesick best friend, Samantha, she meets fellow employee Luke who can see Remy, too.Things get even twistier because Megan’s new friend Ari is sporting a massive crush on Luke, who seems to be developing a massive crush on Megan…making for a love triangle that’s positively possessed.
Megan wants to keep her distance from Luke, but when Remy’s visions get crazy violent; she knows she needs his help. Because someone’s definitely in danger...the only question is who?
First off, this cover is simply fantastic. A little Twilight-esque with the apple, but so much edgier and more mysterious. Like, who's the guy on the cover, Luke? If so, then why are there two of him. Creepy...
I'm not that big into mysteries/ sci-fi (excluding Twilight, of course), but this book just sounds too good and original to miss. Plus, who passes on a perfectly good love triangle. Not this bookworm...
Be sure to catch Devoured out September 22nd!
How to Say Goodbye in Robot

New to town, Beatrice is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet loner who hasn't made a new friend since third grade. Something about him, though, gets to Bea, and soon they form an unexpected friendship. It's not romance, exactly - but it's definitely love. Still, Bea can't quite dispel Jonah's gloom and doom - and as she finds out his family history, she understands why. Can Bea help Jonah? Or is he destined to vanish?
Ahh, don't you love the brooding loner? I'm excited to see this Jonah character. I'm excited to see the relationship Beatrice has with him even more so. Plus, why his "gloom and doom"?
Catch this love story of a different kind out October 1.

In an explosion of his own making, Lucius blew his arms off. Now he has hooks. He chose hooks because they were cheaper. He chose hooks because he wouldn’t outgrow them so quickly. He chose hooks so that everyone would know he was different, so he would scare even himself.
Then he meets Aurora. The hooks don’t scare her. They don’t keep her away. In fact, they don’t make any difference at all to her.
But to Lucius, they mean everything. They remind him of the beast he is inside. Perhaps Aurora is his Beauty, destined to set his soul free from its suffering.
Or maybe she’s just a girl who needs love just like he does.
Definitely excited for this book! The plot kind of reminds me of my favorite Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast, particularly when the Beast keeps trying to push Belle away and keep her from loving him. Ahh... great movie. I'm hoping I can be as enraptured with Lucius and Aurora as I was with Belle and the Beast. Hopefully, even more so.
