With all the craziness of Comic Con going on today, I needed a break. So what does a good little fan girl do when she needs to calm herself? Go to the bookstore of course !! Originally I went to just pick up an order I had made for my Uncle's birthday, but then I saw the membership shelf and being a member, I just had to go browse. And I came away with these lovely ARCs, which I am
really excited about.
"Somebody Up There Hates You" By Holis Seamon
Goodreads Synopsis: Chemo, radiation, a zillion surgeries, watching my mom age twenty years in twenty months: if that’s part of the Big Dude’s plan, then it’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? Somebody Up There Hates You.
SUTHY has landed me here in this hospice, where we—that’s me and Sylvie—are the only people under 30 in the whole place, sweartogod. But I’m not dead yet. I still need to keep things interesting. Sylvie, too. I mean, we’re kids, hospice-hostages or not. We freak out visitors; I get my uncle to sneak me out for one insane Halloween night. Stuff like that. And Sylvie wants to make things even more interesting. That girl’s got big plans.
Only Sylvie’s father is so nuclear-blasted by what’s happened to his little girl, he glows orange, I swear. That’s one scary man, and he’s not real fond of me. So we got a major family feud going on, right here in hospice. DO NOT CROSS line running down the middle of the hall, me on one side, her on the other. It’s crazy.
In the middle of all of this, really, there’s just me and Sylvie, a guy and a girl. And we want to live, in our way, by our own rules, in whatever time we’ve got. We will pack in some living before we go, trust me.....
Now I picked this one up because I fell in love with The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and I wanted to read another similar to it. Now this is an Arc edition so when I do read it, I wont be able to do an in depth review until September but I have to say just from the description alone, I am super excited. I have a feeling that I will be suffering from major feels with this one. I mean its a story about a boy and girl with cancer who make the most of their last days together. Who cant get a feels high off of that.

The Dark Knight meets Cinder in this gripping and cinematic story of heartbreak and revenge. From Alloy Entertainment, this inventive new superhero story is sure to captivate any reader
Oh my god I am so intrigued by this book already. A female superhero! With a bionic heart! Oh this is going to be just amazing. Its published by Harper Teen and is due to be released in October of this year. Now the reviews I have read about this novel haven't been the greatest but I never listen to reviews. I can tell by the initial plot and the idea that I will enjoy this. It seems dark and gritty and who doesn't love that.
I feel so excited to get started on these ARCs and share my opinions on them with all of you. I hope I like them enough that way I can spread the word and get some of you to read them too.
Thanks for the visit !
