Friday Finds #1


Friday Finds is a weekly post the tells you lovelies about some of the books I've found this week. Whether it be an ARC or a classic, these are books I've discovered over the past 7 days.




Cinder by Marissa Meyer


 

Transformed by E.V. Fairfall

"Since the beginning, two entities have had complete, unquestioned control over Thea: the Earth and God.But when Thea suddenly figures out that the Earth has  trapped her within a forest, she discovers that the only way to set herself free is to break God's one rule; she must forsake her animal form and become human. The result is nothing she could ever have expected. Lost within the torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is and even begins to fall in love with the one thing she always hated: a hunter.As her act against God proves more problematic than anticipated, it is only a matter of time before her punishment may prove to be worse than Earth's entrapment."

The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine

"Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how. One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love."

 The Maze Runner by James Dashner


"When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers--boys whose memories are also gone.Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out--and no one's ever made it through alive.Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying."

Thoughts

I watched a live chat that featured Marissa Meyer earlier this week as she was discussing Danielle Paige's new book Dorothy Must Die. I'm ashamed to say I'd never heard of Meyer before this. Although, I now how Cinder sitting on my bookshelf ready to be read!

With Transformed I stumbled upon this while looking at Book Blog Tours. My review for this will be up before 8am on the 19th of May if you're interested. It looks like a really interesting concept and I'm looking forward to it.

Now, you know those silly Internet quizzes? The ones they have for practically everything? Well I got a little bored this week and took one. It told me I needed to read The Promise of Amazing, so I looked it up and I have to say I agree with that little generic Internet multi-choice! It looks like such a good book but I'm struggling to get my hands on a copy at the moment. Fingers crossed I'll get to read it soon.

Lastly is Maze Runner, and again I'm ashamed to admit I have never read it. It's one of those books that's had so much attention I'm worried I'll be disappointed. Then the movie trailer came out! Wowers! It looks so good - I think I might have to pop down to the library and get this out at some point. I hope it's not all hype.
