New Books Out Week of 2/9

These are the books I'm obsessing over this week:

By: Andrew Smith
I have absolutely no idea how to describe this one, but I liked Winger, and it sounds incredibly strange and awesome at the same time!

By: Kelly Oram
When Avery gets her heart broken, she decides to use it for what she does best: Science.  The State Science Fair is coming up, she's using her broken heart as the topic of her experiment... and find a cure.  But with her science partner being her ex, she decides to use his older brother as her "outside objective observer".  With Grayson's bad grades and wild reputation, Avery is about to get more than she bargained for.

(Fates #1)

(Dark Passages #1)
By: Ilsa J. Bick
A Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Thriller that is supposed to be a Martrix meets Inception.  The rest of the synopsis gets kind of confusing and from the reviews I've read, the book actually might be pretty confusing.

  1. The Avery Shaw Experiment, Counting to D, and Solving for Ex are all on my to-read list! They all seem so geeky-cute, and I adore lighthearted reads. Feel better soon, Michelle! The only good thing about getting sick is having more reading time, haha.
