Summary:
Magic, Djinn, Ogres, and Sorcerers. Thirteen-year-old Zardi loves to hear stories about fantastical beings, long banned from the kingdom of Arribitha. But anyone caught whispering of their powers will feel the rage of the sultan-a terrifying usurper who, even with his eyes closed, can see all.


When her own beloved sister is captured by the evil ruler, Zardi knows that she must go to any lengths to rescue her. Along with her best friend, Ridhan-a silver-haired, violet-eyed boy of mysterious origins-and an unlikely crew of sailors led by the infamous Captain Sinbad, Zardi ventures forth into strange and wondrous territory with a seemingly impossible mission: to bring magic back to Arribitha and defeat the sultan once and for all.

Donate an ARC

I hope everyone is enjoying the tours and getting an opportunity to read that one book that they are looking forward to.

To keep the tours running, I ask any of the tour participants that if they have any ARCs to please consider donating.

Every book someone donates, they will be given an opportunity to be the first person on a tour or if you already are on the tour, you will get the opportunity to be bumped up to the top.


Email me here if you would like to donate an ARC to the tours:

Thanks again everyone for making the tours run so smoothly and so fun to host!

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Release Date: September 6, 2011
Donated by: Alexandra from Collections (thank you so much!)


Summary:
In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend. That is until her ex is accidently poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight--at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.

Stay With Me by Paul Griffin
Publisher: Dial
Release Date: September 8, 2011
Donated by: Alexandra from Collections (thank you so much!)


Summary:
Fifteen-year-olds Cece and Mack didn't expect to fall in love. She's a sensitive A student; he's a high school dropout. But soon they're spending every moment together, bonding over a rescued dog, telling their secrets, making plans for the future. Everything is perfect. Until. Until. Mack makes a horrible mistake, and in just a few minutes, the future they'd palnned becomes impossible. In this stark new reality, both of them must find meaning and hope in the memories of what they had, to survive when the person they love can't stay.


From award-winning writer Paul Griffin, Stay with Me is both heartbreaking and uplifting, filled with characters (both dog and human) that will forever change the way you look at the world.
