[Stacking the Shelves] - #38

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your bookshelf, be it the physical one or your digital one!

      I have been working hard over and over, trying to get a hold of everything and set it all straight. I have been looking forward to doing this Monday, and it has mainly been a show of future series finishers and continuations. Overide and Clockwork Princess has been a huge peak of my interest. There rush of fantasy and young adult dystopia and than there is books that I got told I would never pick up. Things I Can't Forget, and Stealing Parker, both are chick-lit and I dislike people who say I don't enjoy a good romance or well drama. I like tasteful drama and romance, none of the twilight high-school babble about who is going to be the next whore.

      Furthermore I am looking for any suggestions on what I could do to better provide for my readers. If you have any ideas or suggestions feel free to drop me a line or e-mail me. I am as well answering any questions or discussions about my reviews as well. Which reminds me I need to update my Goodreads reviews (for the new updates I have posted) and I am debating on posting reviews and impressions to B&N and Amazon. If there is any other suggestions or information about that topic let me know as well.

Title: Override
   Author: Heather Anastasiu
   Format: Paperback
   Release Date: February 12th, 2012

     Zoe is free. She has escaped the enslavement of the Community, disconnected from the hardware that had controlled her every thought and emotion, and evaded capture by the Chancellor intent on killing her. She is finally free, but she is far from safe.

     Zoe and Adrien hide themselves from detection at the Foundation, an academy that trains teen glitchers to fight in the Resistance movement. Together, Zoe and her new team of superhuman fighters must risk their lives to rescue other glitchers and humans from the Chancellor's control. Challenges abound at every turn, and Adrien, who has become silent, distant, and tormented by his visions of the future, only adds to the growing certainty of defeat. But worst of all, as Zoe's team fights against impossible odds, distrust and betrayal leads to the terrible discovery that their greatest threat could already be lurking behind the safe walls of the Foundation.

     Full of high-adrenaline action and shocking twists, Heather Anastasiu's Override is an exciting continuation of this popular young adult trilogy.

     Now Parker wants a new life.

     So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three? Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty?

     This summer she’s a counselor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counselor too. He’s the first guy she ever kissed, and he’s gone from a geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt--with her.
