Blogging from A-Z April Challenge-A

Today marks the beginning of the A-Z Challenge. Challenge being the operative word for me, the challenge requires that bloggers post everyday but Sunday. Thus the least for me. But I think I'm up for it. I hope!

So let's get started.

A stands for A Wishlist...Ha! maybe I can make this work!

Die for Me (Revenants #1) by Amy Plum

Goodreads Description:
My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.

Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.

Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.

While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

Flawless by Lara Chapman

Goodreads Description:
FLAWLESS is a modern retelling of the Cyrano story in which a senior-class salutatorian with a notable nose agrees to help her perfectly gorgeous best friend catch the eye of the new hottie at school, only to discover he's actually the perfect guy for her.

Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky

Goodreads Description:
Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Whether it’s to go to school or on a date, people don’t venture out of their home. There’s really no need. For the most part, Maddie’s okay with the solitary, digital life—until she meets Justin. Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her.

Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking.

In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.

I see you're into books. Aren't we all. Word verification slows down the process of visiting bloggers. Hint.

Thanks for the heads-up on these!

Good luck with your next 25 A-Z posts! ;-)

I refuse to go quietly!

Very clever use of the letter A! Flawless sounds like a fun read!

Karen Peterson said...

I hadn't heard of any of these books, but they all sound interesting.

And, like you, I'm all about using the letters creatively in my titles.

Lindsay said...

Yay for the A-Z challenge. Oh, and I want ALL these books too, but the book telepathy probably told you that already ;-)

I didn't know you were doing the A-Z challenge. Me, too! So, I have to tell you, Die For Me is one of the most amazing covers I've ever seen. I think I'll get it just for that reason. Way to Go!

Cheree said...

Fantastic list. I especially can't wait to read Die For Me. Look forward to reading more posts from the challenge.
