Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.


Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

My Thoughts:
Ally Condie caught my attention with her Matched series, and while it wasn't my favorite series in the world, I still keep her on my list of authors to check out. When I saw she was coming out with a new book, I knew that I had to give it a try. I will definitely be picking up a copy of this when it comes out!

Seventeen-year-old Skylar has been haunted for as long as she can remember by fleeting yet powerful sensations that something is horribly wrong. But despite the panic attacks tormenting her, nothing ever happens, and Sky’s beginning to think she’s crazy. Then she meets a mysterious, otherworldly boy named Win and discovers the shocking truth her premonitions have tapped into: our world no longer belongs to us. For thousands of years, Earth has been at the mercy of alien scientists who care nothing for its inhabitants and are using us as the unwitting subjects of their time-manipulating experiments. Win belongs to a rebel faction seeking to put a stop to it, and he needs Skylar’s help--but with each shift in the past, the very fabric of reality is unraveling, and soon there may be no Earth left to save.

Book Trailers: Round Eleven


Hi everyone! Here are some of the book trailers that we at Catching Books loved watching from the past few months. We hope you like them, too!







I'm so excited to read The Iron Trial! I've been reading Cassandra Clare for as long as I can remember, and I love most of the things she writes. I'm also looking forward to Trial by Fire, particularly because I loved Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed series.

What are your thoughts? Do you like book trailers? Which one do you like the most?

Waiting on Wednesday 150: Promposal



Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine


Name: Promposal
Author: Rhonda Helms

promposal (n.)--an often public proposal, in which one person asks another to the prom, eliciting joy or mortification.

Camilla can't help hoping her secret crush, Benjamin, might randomly surprise her out of the blue with a promposal. However, when she's asked to prom by an irritating casual acquaintance--wearing a fancy tux and standing in front of a news crew--she's forced to say yes. Yet all hope's not lost. A timely school project gives Camilla a chance to get closer to Benjamin...and it seems like the chemistry between them is crackling. But is she reading into something that isn't there?

Joshua, Camilla's bestie, has been secretly in love with his gay best friend, Ethan, since middle school. Just as he decides to bite the bullet and ask Ethan if he'll go to prom with him, even if just as friends, he gets a shocking surprise: Ethan asks Joshua for help crafting the perfect promposal--for another guy. Now Joshua has to suppress his love and try to fake enthusiasm as he watches his dreams fall apart...unless he can make Ethan see that love has been right in front of his eyes the whole time.

The road to the perfect promposal isn't easy to navigate. But one thing's certain--prom season is going to be memorable.

Feature and Follow Friday (56)

Hi Everyone! 


Feature and Follow Friday is Hosted By Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. So be sure to check out the original posts as well. 
      

     Question| What character(s) would you like to see with their own twitter account. 




         Answer| When I thought about which character's twitter I would like to see I came to the conclusion i'd prefer to see a funny character twitter. So the first person I thought of when I read this question was Kenji from the Shatter Me series Kenji is hilarious throughout the series and I'd love to see what comic relief he'd have on the real world. Also, I know Kenji would have me laughing at almost every single tweet he posted. 


Then the second person I thought of is Kaiden from The Sweet Trilogy.I honestly have no words for Kaiden because Kaiden is Kaiden and he just needs a twitter.


Who would you like to see have a twitter account?

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

My Thoughts:
This book sounds really interesting! I'm interested to see if this book is dystopian or is just set in another world. Just by reading the description, I think I am really going to like Aya and I'm excited to read this book next year!
