Stocktake Saturday 76

November 30, 2013 Stocktake Saturday 2

Welcome to Stocktake Saturday! This feature is where I share some bookish news with you and then show you all the bookish goodies I got over the week.

The cover reveals from the last week – (links to Goodreads pages)

In Bookish News, you can see the first page of Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi here 😀

Jessica Shirvington has announced her new book – Disruption is the first in a science fiction thriller duology (yay!). It will be released on March 24, 2014 in Australia, no US release date has been announced. Here’s the synopsis:

The Mercer Corporation might rule the world through the control of pheromones. But nothing, and no one, is going to stand in Maggie’s way. Especially Quentin Mercer.

Ever since the development of M-chips, which tap into human pheromones, M-Corp has become the new superpower. Why trust your heart when all you have to do is get within a two-metre radius of someone to record a compatibility rating? Ratings range from the rare ‘perfect match’ to the dreaded ‘negative’ and everything in between.

Three years ago Maggie’s father mysteriously rated as a ‘neg’ and was taken away from them. For the last two years, eighteen-year-old Maggie has had only one goal: to uncover the truth and bring him home. But even though she’s discovered the government’s secret underground prison network and the fact that negs aren’t going to rehab farms (not even close), she’s still no closer to finding her father. Her last hope is Quentin Mercer, her classmate at the elite Kingly Academy — and the heir to the Mercer Corporation.

By tricking Quentin into believing he’s a ‘neg,’ Maggie quickly gains access to all things M-Corp. But Quentin isn’t the person she thought he was… And while she can easily betray her morals in the quest to save her father, can she betray her heart?

This week I’ve been Waiting on … Cress by Marissa Meyer.

    I love Jessica Shirvington and her new book sounds like another book I’ll love. I got Until We End by Frankie Brown to and will be reading and reviewing it next week.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Despite some of the horrid reviews, I really enjoyed Icons. It really was the typical YA dystopian science fiction, but there was something so likable about it. Looking forward to reading your thoughts.

    Happy reading.
