I’ve been terrible lately, especially with the irratic blogging. Blame it on University. It’s been eating up all my time, totally stressing me out. Plus, I’m trying to get SW done by the 31st of Dec. (Yeah, I know, I’m terrible with deadlines, but I’m hell bent on this one) so that’s taking up the all the spare time I can manage. And, um, well, there’s another tiny intrusion in the form of a *cough* Patch Cipriano *cough* (considering that HUSH HUSH arrived in my mailbox yesterday) but I’m trying to *cough* resist *cough* temptation *cough*.
So, a short post on ‘Book To LOOK OUT For’ but one I hope you won’t mind.
Beth has always been “The Beast”—that’s what everyone at school calls her because of her awkward height, facial scars, and thick glasses. Beth’s only friend is geeky, golden-haired Scott. That is, until she’s selected to be her choir’s soprano soloist, and receives the makeover that will change her life forever.
THE LOVE AFFAIR
When Beth’s choir travels to Switzerland, she meets Derek: pale, brooding, totally dreamy. Derek’s untethered passion—for music, and for Beth—leaves her breathless. Because in Derek’s eyes? She’s not The Beast, she’s The Beauty.
THE IMPOSSIBLE CHOICE
When Beth comes home, Scott, her best friend in the world, makes a confession that leaves her completely torn. Should she stand by sweet, steady Scott or follow the dangerous, intense new feelings she has for Derek?
The closer Beth gets to Derek, the further away he seems. Then Beth discovers that Derek’s been hiding a dark secret from her …one that could shatter everything.
I loved Angela Morrison’s TAKEN BY STORM (you can read my review here). That was my first ever post (actually second, but the official first post doesn’t really count). Infact, TBS was the book that inspired me to start a blog in the first place (not that it has anything to do with blogging but ‘cos I so badly wanted to review it so that people read the book).Just look at that cover. It’s gorgeous! (yeah, I’m pretty much of a cover whore) Even the premise is so promising, it just draws me in. I’m certainly keeping an eye out for this one. It comes out in March 2010.Sometime soon I’ll try hosting Angela Morrison for CHATTERBUZZ, so keep a look out 😀
