Dark Matter |Review |

25111004

 “Are you happy with your life?” 

 Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. 

 Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits. 

 Before a man Jason’s never met smiles down at him and says, “Welcome back, my friend.” 

 In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.

 Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) |Review |

25111004

 Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder's brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annual ball. He jokingly calls it "a matter of national security," but Cinder suspects it's more serious than he's letting on.

 Although eager to impress the prince, Cinder's intentions are derailed when her younger stepsister, and only human friend, is infected with the fatal plague that's been devastating Earth for a decade. Blaming Cinder for her daughter's illness, Cinder's stepmother volunteers her body for plague research, an "honor" that no one has survived.

 But it doesn't take long for the scientists to discover something unusual about their new guinea pig. Something others would kill for. 25111004 25111004 Continue reading Fancy & Adriaan

The Girl in 6E |Review |

25111004

 I haven't touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.

 I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.

 They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide... my lust for blood, my love of death.

 Taking their money is easy. Keeping all these secrets... one is bound to escape.

 What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl's life depending on you venturing into society?

 Enter a world of lies, thrills, fears, and all desires, in this original thriller from A. R. Torre.  25111004 25111004 Continue reading Fancy & Adriaan

Break Her |Review |

25111004

 "The moment she woke up, her nightmare began..."

 What would you do if you awakened to find a dangerous stranger in your house? In your bed, next to you? Now your home has become your prison, and your body, a battlefield. How would you hold onto your sanity, your self-esteem, your very soul against someone determined to annihilate all three?

 In the psychological thriller BREAK HER, one woman will find herself in this almost unthinkable situation, and one man will discover that he has finally come up against someone unlike any of those he has destroyed before. 

 On the surface, this intruder has all the advantages: strength, weapons, ruthlessness. The only way he can lose is if he finds himself responding to his victim on a human level. The only way she can win is if she rips away the protective lies she’s told herself, the hard shell of indifference she’s hidden in, and becomes again what she has not been since she lost everything that mattered to her, years ago: human.

 Warning: Includes graphic depictions of rape, sex, and violence and is for readers over the age of 18 only.

 I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.

 August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?
