2 comments
I'm so excited.If you've been watching my blog or followed in some way (thank you for your interest by the way) you know that i've started this thing called Themed Weekdays where i post on each day something related to the theme :D Up until now, i only have 2 Themes Weekdays (Tuesday is Youtube day and Wednesday is Wishlist day!)
Friday is officially New Discoveries, and when i say new, i really mean new to me:D
There are some books i recently discovered(today, actually..)

Books:

The Selection
By Kiera Cass
Goodreads Synopsis:
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

The cover is just stunning (actually, that's what made me read the synopsis)


So..Goodreads did not have a big synopsis,just this :




About a 17-year-old girl named Parker who falls for the new 23-year-old coach of the baseball team.

Companion to CATCHING JORDAN.




Sounds pretty interesting...i love teacher(that is not much older than 26) paired with a student ever since one of out teachers told us about his friends (when he was a little younger) and one of his students :) It was such a romantic (and real) story :)




Seeds of Discovery (Dusk Gate Chronicles)

Quinn Robbins' life was everything she thought a teenager's should be. She has good friends, a family that she loves, good grades, and an after-school job she enjoys. And, she's just been asked out by Zander Cunningham, a popular football player and great guy. But one day when driving home after picking up her little sister from the baby-sitter's, she nearly hits a boy who, after running blindly into the street, mysteriously disappears.
The mystery only deepens as she figures out who the boy is; William Rose, a reclusive, awkward boy from school who always has his nose in a pile of books.
As she becomes more aware of his behavior it becomes more obvious how out of the ordinary William is and how hard he deliberately tries to blend into the background. This only intrigues her more and she finds herself working to find out more about him, and exactly where he keeps disappearing to.

On a whim one night she follows him and suddenly finds herself in a new world. One where William is a prince, literally, and she is treated like a princess. She also discovers that she is stuck; the gate back to her own world isn't always open.
Quinn finds herself smack in the middle of a modern-day fairy tale, on a course that will change her life forever.

  1. I have yet to read Catching Jordan but it is on my to be read list, but the next book Stealing Parker looks amazing! I am with you on the whole teacher student thing [as long as they are close in age!] I have just read a book named Gabriel's Inferno by Sylvain Reynard and it was like that [it was also amazing and a really amazing read]. I will be keeping my eye out for Stealing Parker and hopefully I will get to read Catching Jordan before that!
