Hey everyone! As always I’m forever waiting for books to come out that I desperately want… no need to read and I’m forever on the Goodreads site checking out when the next awesome book is going to be out. My TBR pile on my desk is ridiculous yet I keep adding to it. Addiction? Most probably. But it doesn’t hurt to have the latest release sitting there for me to read when I get around to it.
So here a few of the books I don’t have to wait long for.
The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith
Release Date: 9th November 2010
Sixteen-year-old Jack gets drunk and is in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is kidnapped. He escapes, narrowly. The only person he tells is his best friend, Conner. When they arrive in London as planned for summer break, a stranger hands Jack a pair of glasses. Through the lenses, he sees another world called Marbury.
There is war in Marbury. It is a desolate and murderous place where Jack is responsible for the survival of two younger boys. Conner is there, too. But he’s trying to kill them.
Meanwhile, Jack is falling in love with an English girl, and afraid he’s losing his mind.
Conner tells Jack it’s going to be okay.
But it’s not.

With growing self-confidence, an unexpected romance, and a new understanding of her family’s decision to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, Piper just may discover her own inner rock star.

And then she witnesses a crime that will throw the whole community into an uproar. Caught among the lure of a troublemaking friend, her love for a brooding boy, and her complicated feelings about her father’s human rights crusade, Roar is going to have to tackle it all. And with a camera around her neck, she’s capturing it all, too.
