Well this was a bit of a slowww reading month for me. Here are the books that I read, which include two advanced copies of books for blog tours, a giveaway book, and a book I beta read.
Blog Tour books:
Infinite Limits by Megan Duke (released December 16, 2014)
Pinny the Bowling Pin by Leah Ward
Fragile Facade (The Blind Barriers Trilogy #1) by Sophie Davis
You’ve heard their stories. You’ve felt their pain. Now, in this thought-provoking conclusion to Small Circles, the characters we’ve come to love are faced with an abundance of difficult choices. It’s time for each of them to choose a path, but who’s to say which is the right one? Between a wedding, a pregnancy, a disappearance, and a disturbing dream turned reality, there are an infinite number of ways this story could end. But there is a limit to every infinity, and everyone has a breaking point.
Poor Pinny just wants to fit in. He is tired of being the last bowling pin standing, making it nearly impossible for kids to bowl a strike. Everyone dislikes the last pin, the lone pin, the one who won’t fall no matter how many others do. As if it isn’t bad enough that the kids don’t like him, even the other pin’s don’t! He is making them look bad after all. But maybe, Pinny wasn’t meant to fit in? Maybe he was meant for something greater! Perhaps a doctor, a rockstar, or even the President!
Kids will be imagining their own humorous occupations for Pinny, and sharing a laugh with the lovable character and the author who finally revealed the truth behind the bowling pins lives. This story is a perfect gift for anti-bullying, for a reminder to kids to never give up, and for those who just want to know why it’s so difficult to bowl a strike!
Lark Kingsley had the perfect family, the perfect future, the perfect life. Born and raised in affluent Manhattan society, she was bred for success. Lark had it all. Until one day things go terribly wrong, and she vanishes without a trace.
Raven Ferragamo is starting a new life. Taking a year off after high school, she moves to Washington, D.C., leaving her friends, her family, and her problems behind. The clean break with her past starts off better than she could’ve dreamed. For the first time in her short life, Raven really feels as though anything is possible.
Until one day, in the midst of a nationwide hunt for the Kinsgley Diamonds heiress, Raven happens upon Lark’s diary. Without warning, she is drawn in to the life of a girl with many secrets. Lark knew of the fate that would befall her before she ever disappeared. Her desperate pleas for help draw Raven in to a labyrinth of mysteries.
Seemingly coming from different worlds, the two have more in common than either could ever imagine.
What happened to Lark? And why was she building a hidden life? Will Raven find the answers before she is ensnared as well?
