Cover reveal: “The body institute”, Carol Riggs.

Buon pomeriggio bestioline!
La giornata grigia, sarò sincera, non mi invoglia a far nulla oggi. Mi sono costretta ad andare a ricevimento dal mio relatore, prima: la buona notizia è che la mia tesi si può fare e la mia idea gli piace, la cattiva è che non riuscirò mai a realizzarla perché la mole di lavoro è immensa e la biblioteca fa possibile e impossibile per impedirmi di trovare i libri di cui ho bisogno. Molto bene. Detto questo, so che suona impossibile, ma non mi sento di leggere nulla oggi. Ho troppi pensieri per la testa, vorrei solo rannicchiarmi sotto al piumone e aspettare che il temporale passi, quindi oggi niente teaser. Vi beccate, al contrario, questo Cover reveal. E se la copertina non mi fa impazzire, la trama se non altro sembra essere molto più originale. Che dite, lo aggiungo alla TBR? Voi lo aggiungete?
Raccontatemi qualcosa, dai!

Titolo: The Body Institute
Autore: Carol Riggs
Pubblicato il: 1 settembre 2015
Editore: Entangled Teen

Meet Morgan Dey, one of the top teen Reducers at The Body Institute.
Thanks to cutting-edge technology, Morgan can temporarily take over another girl’s body, get her in shape, and then return to her own body—leaving her client slimmer, more toned, and feeling great. Only there are a few catches…
For one, Morgan won’t remember what happens in her “Loaner” body. Once she’s done, she won’t recall walks with her new friend Matt, conversations with the super-cute Reducer she’s been text-flirting with, or the uneasy feeling she has that the director of The Body Institute is hiding something. Still, it’s all worth it in the name of science. Until the glitches start… Suddenly, residual memories from her Loaner are cropping up in Morgan’s mind. She’s feeling less like herself and more like someone else. And when protests from an anti–Body Institute organization threaten her safety, she’ll have to decide if being a Reducer is worth the cost of her body and soul…

Cover reveal: “Cinderella’s Shoes”, Shonna Slayton.

Se avessi letto effettivamente qualche libro nelle ultime due settimane, oggi ci sarebbe stato un WWW Wednesday. Non avendo letto nulla di nuovo, invece, vi beccate forse qualcosa di persino più interessante! YA Bound Book Tour organizza sempre un sacco di iniziative carine e ormai questa è la terza volta che vi prendo parto. Nello specifico, il libro che vi presento oggi, svelandone la copertina in anteprima che più anteprima di così si muore, è una rivisitazione della storia di Cenerentola, ambientata durante la seconda guerra mondiale. E per quanto Cenerentola decisamente non è e non sarà mai la mia favola preferita, questa versione mi intriga non poco. Qual è la vostra favola preferita? L’hanno già rivisitata? Se sì, vi è piaciuto come? Raccontatemi un po’, sono curiosa di sentire cosa ne pensate!

Titolo: Cinderella’s Shoes Autore: Shonna Slayton Pubblicato: 10/06/15 Editore: Entangled Teen

Book Blitz: “Collide”, Melissa West

Cucù, sorpresa! Ritorno su questi schermi, con un blitz improvviso per parlarvi del terzo volume di una trilogia che mi sta incuriosendo moltissimo e che conto di affrontare non appena il carico di libri arretrati si sarà alleggerito un minimo.
Che ve ne pare? La conoscete già? Oggi esce il terzo volume, quale occasione migliore per scoprirla?

Titolo: Collide (The Taking #3)
Autore: Melissa West
Data di pubblicazione: 9 febb. 2015
Editore: Entangled Teen
Pagine: 320

Sinossi
Military legacy Ari Alexander has survived alien spies, WWIV, and a changing world order. But when the new leader of Earth uses Jackson—the only boy she’s ever let herself care about—to get to her, Ari has no choice but to surrender.
To free Jackson, she agrees to travel to the national bases to train others to fight. What she discovers is a land riddled with dying people. Ari has the power to heal by turning the fighters into aliens—half-breeds like her. If she succeeds, together, they have a chance at overthrowing the alien leader, Zeus. But if she fails, everyone she holds dear will be wiped away forever.
Once again, everything Ari’s come to believe is thrown into question. In a world of uncertainty, loyalties are tested, lies are uncovered, and no one can be trusted. If Ari and Jackson have any hope at survival and at preserving a life for the future, they must fight the final war with their eyes wide open.

My gaze drifts over to Jackson to find him watching me, his blue-green eyes no longer beaten, but strong. Alive. Raging.
I walk over and press my hands to the glass, my eyes never leaving his. In them I see everything he’s thinking and feeling. His anger at Kelvin. His sadness at losing Mami. His love for me, an unwavering fire inside him. And then I see his determination, so clear it’s as though I’m thinking it myself—he’s going to kill Zeus.
It’s time to begin.
Jackson nods once to me, and I grip the glass tighter, feeling its composition, and then the glass vibrates, harder and harder. Law goes still. I draw a breath, my focus on the boy I love and his raging eyes, and then a tiny crack splits out from my right pinky finger like a spider web across the glass, splitting again and again. Another starts from my left hand and I lean farther into the glass, imagining Jackson and me back on Loge, Emmy and Mami, and then the window bursts, the glass shooting out in a thousand directions.
Jackson stands slowly, effort etched into his face, the muscles in his arms flexing. The door to his room starts to open, and my gaze flashes over, every fiber in me focused on keeping it shut.
“They’re coming,” I say.
“It doesn’t matter,” Jackson replies, his voice like a warm blanket over my heart, soothing the ache that’s been there since he disappeared. The ache I feared would never go away. “They can’t contain us. They will never contain us.”

“I thought I’d never see you again,” I whisper. “I thought you were…” I can’t bring myself to finish the thought.
He shakes his head, his eyes still on mine. “I would find you.”
“But what if—”
“You’re all I have now, all I need. I would find you.” And then his hands are in my hair, securing me to him, his lips on mine. A combination of a sigh and a sob bursts from my mouth and then he’s lifting me up, my legs wrapping around his waist as he carries me to my bed, never letting his lips leave mine. He kisses me like it’s the last kiss we’ll have, like he needs me to breathe. And I can’t get enough.
We lose ourselves in each other; exploring all the places we’d never paid attention to before. I slip off his shirt and kiss a trail down his back, up his side, loving how even now, broken by the pain of losing Mami, he is still beautiful. Even more beautiful.
He lifts me up so he can tug off my shirt and then we’re lying in bed naked, a sheet over us as we allow our bodies to meld together, everything else gone but this moment. But us.
