Summary

In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

Top Ten 2014 Books So Far

Time for another mid-year check in point! Hard to believe 2014 is more than half over already.

So many good books this year. I've actually read more adult books this year than I have in the past few years. But I will focus on young adult for this list. You can definitely tell that I've been on a contemporary kick. 7 of the 10 books are contemporary. One of the paranormals feels contemporary most of the time.

GIVEAWAY! Blog Tour Review: Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

Check out the entire blog tour!

Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

Release Date:
July 15, 2014
Publisher:
Sourcebooks Fire

Summary

Annie hates running. No matter how far she jogs, she can’t escape the guilt that if she hadn’t broken up with Kyle, he might still be alive. So to honor his memory, she starts preparing for the marathon he intended to race.

But the training is even more grueling than Annie could have imagined. Despite her coaching, she’s at war with her body, her mind—and her heart. With every mile that athletic Jeremiah cheers her on, she grows more conflicted. She wants to run into his arms…and sprint in the opposite direction. For Annie, opening up to love again may be even more of a challenge than crossing the finish line.(courtesy of Goodreads)
