Once again, on a three-day weekend, I have gotten sick. On Memorial Day weekend this year, I got sick. On July 4th three-day weekend, the in-laws visited which is the equivalent of being sick and not being able to enjoy three days off in a row. This weekend .... sick.
I'm better today, Sunday, than I was yesterday but still feeling oogy. It's just. not. right.
I read CINDER by Marissa Meyer. This is 1st of 4 in series in the SFF Lunar Chronicles. Here's a description:
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth's fate hinges on one girl. . . .Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She's a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world's future.
Published in 2012, it has 400 pages.
Next up I think will be DECEPTIONS by Kelley Armstrong. That is the final book in the Cainsville Trilogy. Here's a description:
Olivia Taylor Jones’s life has exploded. She’s discovered she is not only adopted, but her real parents are convicted serial killers. Fleeing the media frenzy, she took refuge in the oddly secluded town of Cainsville. She has since solved the town’s mysteries and finds herself not only the target of its secretive elders but also her stalker ex-fiancé. Visions continue to haunt her: particularly a little blond girl in a green sundress who insists she has an important message for Olivia, one that may help her balance the light and darkness within herself. Death stalks both Olivia and the two men most important to her, as she desperately searches to understand whether ancient scripts are dictating the triangle that connects them. Will darkness prevail, or does Olivia have the power to prevent a tragic fate?
