I've been on a YA/New Adult Contemporary roll lately, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy my angstsy Dystopians, Mysteries or Paranormal Romances anymore. So here's a book that grabbed my attention a while ago and I can't wait to read:
What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles #1)
by Kat Zhang
Release Date: September 18th 2012
Format: Hardcover, 356 pages
Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t…
For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable–hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet…for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.
This one got me at "two souls woven together in one body." It sounds fascinating, interesting and pretty awesome - in a creepy and heartbreaking kind of way. And the idea that one of those souls should be just fading away? Whoa! *shudder* I think this is going to be an intense, thoughtful and somehow psychological story, so I can't wait to add it to my Fall TBR pile.
Also, bonus - how gorgeous is that cover? ♥
What are you waiting on this week?
