Cover Reveal: One Wish Away By Kelly Lynn

One Wish Away
Release Date: 11/11/14
Bloomsbury Spark

Book Summary:
Be careful what you wish for…

Lyra has always been ahead of the curve. Top of her class in school, a budding astronomer, and with a best friend like Darren she barely has time to miss the mother who abandoned her family years ago. She's too busy planning to follow in her father's footsteps, and to become the youngest astronomer at Space Exploration and Discovery.

When a star goes missing Lyra is determined to get to the bottom of it only to discover her braniac dad is the mastermind of a top-secret government experiment. They promise to build a perfect world, one galaxy at a time, but with every tweak of the present, a bit more of the future starts to crumble.

Lyra has to go undercover to reveal the truth and let humanity decide if the consequences are worth more than wishing on a star.

About the Author
Eventually the day came when the voices in Kelley Lynn’s head were more insistent then her engineering professor’s. So instead of turning to her Thermodynamics book, Kelley brought up a blank page on her computer screen and wrote. Somewhere along the way she became a Young Adult author.

Kelley was born and raised a Midwestern girl. She’s not afraid to sweat and fills her free time with softball, soccer and volleyball. (Though you probably don’t want her on your volleyball team.) She occasionally makes guest appearances as a female vocalist for area bands. Music plays a large role in her writing process as well as the characters and plot lines within her stories.

You can find Kelley hanging out at her blog, titled in her name, as well as the group blog she shares with her fellow critique partners, Falling for Fiction. Kelley is a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators.

New Releases in YA this week






Septemeber 23.2014 New Releases

In a Handful of Dust By Mindy Mcginnis




  



The only thing bigger than the world is fear.

Lucy’s life by the pond has always been full. She has water and friends, laughter and the love of her adoptive mother, Lynn, who has made sure that Lucy’s childhood was very different from her own. Yet it seems Lucy’s future is settled already—a house, a man, children, and a water source—and anything beyond their life by the pond is beyond reach.

When disease burns through their community, the once life-saving water of the pond might be the source of what’s killing them now. Rumors of desalinization plants in California have lingered in Lynn’s mind, and the prospect of a “normal” life for Lucy sets the two of them on an epic journey west to face new dangers: hunger, mountains, deserts, betrayal, and the perils of a world so vast that Lucy fears she could be lost forever, only to disappear in a handful of dust.

In this companion to Not a Drop to Drink, Mindy McGinnis thrillingly combines the heart-swelling hope of a journey, the challenges of establishing your own place in the world, and the gripping physical danger of nature in a futuristic frontier



Afterworlds By Scott Westerfeld


    

Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she's made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings… 

Told in alternating chapters is Darcy's novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved - and terrifying - stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.



Unmade By Sarah Rees Brennan



Powerful love comes with a price. Who will be the sacrifice?

Kami has lost the boy she loves, is tied to a boy she does not, and faces an enemy more powerful than ever before. With Jared missing for months and presumed dead, Kami must rely on her new magical link with Ash for the strength to face the evil spreading through her town.

Rob Lynburn is now the master of Sorry-in-the-Vale, and he demands a death. Kami will use every tool at her disposal to stop him. Together with Rusty, Angela, and Holly, she uncovers a secret that might be the key to saving the town. But with knowledge comes responsibility—and a painful choice. A choice that will risk not only Kami’s life, but also the lives of those she loves most.

This final book in the Lynburn Legacy is a wild, entertaining ride from beginning to shocking end





Tabula Rasa By Kristen Lippert-Martin

The Bourne Identity meets Divergent in this heart-pounding debut.

Sixteen-year-old Sarah has a rare chance at a new life. Or so the doctors tell her. She’s been undergoing a cutting-edge procedure that will render her a tabula rasa—a blank slate. Memory by memory her troubled past is being taken away.

But when her final surgery is interrupted and a team of elite soldiers invades the isolated hospital under cover of a massive blizzard, her fresh start could be her end. 

Navigating familiar halls that have become a dangerous maze with the help of a teen computer hacker who's trying to bring the hospital down for his own reasons, Sarah starts to piece together who she is and why someone would want her erased. And she won’t be silenced again.

A high-stakes thriller featuring a non-stop race for survival and a smart heroine who will risk everything, Tabula Rasa is, in short, unforgettable.

I'm Back!! Miss Me?

Hi!!!!!!


Hello loves!!! I'm back! So, here is an update on my life since... I haven't blogged in nine months( Sorry). I've graduated college,moved back home, and have been saving money like crazy so that I can move to............ NEW YORK!!!!  Seeing that the cost of living in New York is drastically higher than the cost of living here in Texas, I've literally been doing nothing but work,work, and more work. So that I can save up enough money to survive in New York for at least six months without stressing, since I'm going without a JOB!!!!  I've been researching everything about NYC so I feel that I'm kind of prepared for the challenges it will throw at me and my two best-friends that are moving with me! 

Updates on the Blog

So, since I started this blog it's had it's ups and downs, and I think it affected me A LOT! I went from enjoying reading, to it feeling like it was a chore because I had to write these long reviews on every book. So I've decided to make some changes that I feel would help me never get bored with blogging, again. 

1. I will only we writing one review a week on the blog

2. I'm going to look for a Co-blogger so that my blog never goes Ghost for months at a time,again!

3.Lastly, this is a big one . I will be going from a BOOK blog to a LIFESTYLE blog or a catch all blog. I'm a books,gamer,and products kind of girl and with me just reviewing books it got boring, pretty fast. I'm going to start blogging about books, the subscription boxes I get, product reviews from influenster, and my new life in New York! Understand that Getlostinfiction will still be mostly book related,but with labeling it  a lifestyle blog, when I randomly throw in a non book related post, you have an understanding of why!With that said, I understand if a lot of you un-follow because the formula you liked has now changed. I will be sad to see you go(don't go), but I feel this new formula will work better for me!

Schedule 

Monday- I will have a new releases post(Books)
Tuesday- Teaser Tuesday
Wednesday- Waiting on Wednesday
Thursday- Book Review
Sunday- Sunday Post

Throughout the week I will have post on book tours that I'm signed up with(promoted). Also post on my life as a Transplant, and product review when I receive things from influenster, and every two weeks a post on my subscription boxes.

PLUS - Since I will be in New York( moving late October) I will have lost of opportunities that I didn't have before to attend book signings, and book conventions, so I will give you post on that as well!



Thanks for reading all of that!! If you have any questions or just want to talk. Just leave a comment!!! 

P.S I will start actively blogging again First Week in October!!!!!

Teaser Tuesday: Vicious By V.E Schwab

[Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!]


My Teaser for this week is...




“Truth be told, Victor didn't care for graveyards, either. He didn't like dead people, mostly because he had no effect on them. Sydney, conversely, didn't like dead people because she had such a marked effect on them.”
