Hello, Teen Tuesday!

Why, hello there. I'm a new recruit at Teen Tuesday, and I'm thrilled to be here. For my little introductory post, I thought I'd give a run down on my recent reads, just 'cause...

Fade by Robert Cormier, about a boy who learns he can vanish from sight, with horrifying consequences...

My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent--it's about BANSHEES. I mean, come on. When was the last time anyone wrote ANYTHING about banshees?

I also got Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel, Ballads of Suburbia, and Deathwish by Rob Thurman.

Hopefully Cruel Summer will be better then Alyson Noel's paranormal effort, Evermore (which I reviewed here--it was AWFUL):

I also read this great ARC of a "blog novel" called EyeLeash (reviewed here).

Jade Ashton is a sassy virgin. In her private blog, she vents about “fitting in” a world where superficiality reigns supreme.

Suddenly all logic flies out the window when she meets Novan: the former geek, who’s morphed into a delicious songwriter-musician.

They decide to be “friends-with-benefits”. But it’s Novan, with his poems and riddling passages on his own blog — which *isn’t private* — that backs out.

EyeLeash captures self-discovery in the 2000s, and showcases the colorful, intricate drama in two youths’ relentless search for themselves — and what’s really in their hearts.

Here are some books I'm DYING to read:

Anywho, I hope this was a decent enough first post. Til next Tuesday!

My friend is trying to get me to read Fade... I was actually planning on it too =D

Good point about the banshees.

I haven't read anything by Alyson Noel, although her books are everywhere.

Ballads of Suburbia was great... read read read it!
