Review: Cress by @Marrisa_Meyer #SaveCress

Cress is the third book of The Lunar Chronicles. You can read my review of the first, Cinder, and second, Scarlet. The fourth, Winter, comes out next year.

I loved this book so much, I thought you would too. Stop by on Wednesday for a Cress giveaway!
CressRapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard.

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

Book Review: The 5th Wave by @RickYancey

The 5th Wave is the first in a NYT bestselling YA sci-fi trilogy. You can pre-order the second, The Infinite Sea. I’m giving away a copy of The 5th Wave on Wednesday–so stay tuned!

The_5th_WaveAfter the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

Blog Tour: Win a digital #giveaway of Copied by S.M. Anderson

With us today is S.M. Anderson, who’s stopping by on her blog tour for a short Q&A about her book, Copied, and a digital giveaway!
CopiedHere’s the book blurb about Copied:

Adopted off the black market, Alexander Mitchell, has no idea his DNA is copyrighted and property of military weapons giant Texacom Defense. Nor that his DNA is being used to develop an army of clones. When the company discovers he was not properly disposed of 17 years ago, they send an assassin copy, BETA23, to terminate Xan and cover it up.

After he narrowly escapes BETA23’s first attempt, Xan teams up with Lacey, a genetically engineered genius he’s surprised to find common ground with— only they’re awkward together. Half of the time she stares at Xan like the science project he is and the other half…let’s just say Xan can’t keep his eyes off her lips.

When they manage to capture a company copy by luck and sheer stupidity on Xan’s part, Lacey is determined to see the good in their prisoner to the point she believes BETA23 can be persuaded to give them the intelligence they need to keep the company forever off Xan’s back. Xan’s not sure if he can trust the darker version of himself, not when it means gambling with the lives of his family and the possibility of losing Lacey.

To enter in the giveaway, post a comment below. The giveaway begins on Monday, Dec. 16th and closes 12 pm EST on Sunday, Dec. 22nd.

I will use a random number generator–the corresponding blog commenter will be the winner of the digital copy. (If the email you use to comment is not how you want me to contact you, make sure you leave another way!)

Congratulations to Jill, our winner!

Now onto the Q&A with Anderson:S.M. AndersonWhat inspired Copied?

Review: Shades of Earth (Across the Universe trilogy) by @BethRevis

Shades of Earth is the last in Beth Revis’ NYT bestselling trilogy. Read my review of the first, Across the Universe, and the second, A Million Suns.
Shades_of_EarthAmy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind. They’re ready to start life afresh–to build a home–on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience.

But this new Earth isn’t the paradise Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed’s former passengers aren’t alone on this planet. And if they’re going to stay, they’ll have to fight.

Amy and Elder must race to discover who–or what–else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed–friends, family, life on Earth–will have been for nothing.
