FRIDAY STARS – Your Weekly Must Knows 10/07/16

Friday Stars.13
Life:

This last weekend and every day since then we have been moving.  I absolutely love our new house and I expected unpacking to be boring.  Well it is for the most part, but I keep running across things I never even knew I still had…..like piles of notes that I use to pass back and forth between friends in school…..you guys…..we had a secret code when we talked about our boyfriends or crushes (you take the first letter of the first and last name and make it food involved….like for my name Jen O. – I’d be hmmm Jiggly Oranges).  Oh my gosh.  They are completely ridiculous and every time I find one I laugh so hard that I cry.  I can’t wait to see what else I’ll find!

In case you aren’t familiar with our Friday Star Posts, we like to take a look at what’s happened around here in the last week, what’s coming up that we are excited about and anything else that we may have to share!

♥ Enjoy!

Just Finished and Loved:

roar-and-live-veronica-rossiRoar and Liv (Under the Never Sky #0.5) by Veronica Rossi Jen’s Review

5 Stars! This book is a definite must read for fans of Under The Never Sky and for anyone who fell in love with Roar.

The first novella in this trilogy. In the first book, Under the Never Sky, Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as The Death Shop—are slim. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild—a savage—and her only hope of staying alive. A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile—everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. In alternating chapters told in Aria’s and Perry’s voices, Under the Never Sky subtly and powerfully captures the evolving relationship between these characters and sweeps readers away to a harsh but often beautiful world. Continuing with Through the Ever Night and concluding with Into the Still Blue, the Under the Never Sky trilogy has already been embraced by readers in twenty-six countries and been optioned for film by Warner Bros.

Upcoming Releases:

the-midnight-star-marie-luThe Midnight Star (Young Elites #3) by Marie Lu (Releases 10/11)
The final book in this trilogy!  In the first book, The Young Elites, I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.  Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.
Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.
Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.
Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.
 It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

tell-the-truth-shame-the-devil-melina-marhettaTell the Truth, Shame the Devil by Melina Marchetta (Releases 10/11)
In the wake of a devastating bombing, a father risks everything to find out who was responsible.
When Bish Ortley, a suspended cop, receives word that a bus carrying his daughter has been bombed, he rushes to be by her side. A suspect has already been singled out: a 17-year-old girl who has since disappeared from the scene.
The press has now revealed that she is the youngest member of one of London’s most notorious families. Thirteen years earlier, her grandfather set off a suicide bomb in a grocery store, a bomb her mother confessed to building. Has the girl decided to follow in their footsteps?
To find her, Bish must earn the trust of her friends and family, including her infamous mother, now serving a life sentence in prison. But even as he delves into the deadly bus attack that claimed five lives, the ghosts of older crimes become impossible to ignore.

still-life-with-tornado-a-s-kingStill Life with Tornado by A.S. King(Releases 10/11)
Sixteen-year-old Sarah can’t draw. This is a problem, because as long as she can remember, she has “done the art.” She thinks she’s having an existential crisis. And she might be right; she does keep running into past and future versions of herself as she wanders the urban ruins of Philadelphia. Or maybe she’s finally waking up to the tornado that is her family, the tornado that six years ago sent her once-beloved older brother flying across the country for a reason she can’t quite recall. After decades of staying together “for the kids” and building a family on a foundation of lies and domestic violence, Sarah’s parents have reached the end. Now Sarah must come to grips with years spent sleepwalking in the ruins of their toxic marriage. As Sarah herself often observes, nothing about her pain is remotely original—and yet it still hurts.

  1. I really enjoyed the Providence Trilogy and the Revenant trilogy. Both of them were great. 🙂

  2. Yey! I’m thrilled to hear that you are loving your new house. Have fun unpacking! I half love and half hate that part. I love organizing everything where I want in a new house, but it is very time consuming. That’s too funny about finding your old notes! Also, Still Life with Tornado sounds so amazing. I want to read that one. 😀
