Guys like Four and Books to Trade

I feel like I'm forever doing catch up posts. hmm wonder what that says about my procrastinating self...

  • Siren Contest ends Monday September 12th for those of you who haven't entered but want to.
  • The winner for New England Witch Chronicles Giveaway was Donna at Book Lovers Paradise head over and show her some love!
  • I recently finished Delirium by Lauren Oliver and I'm itching for Pandemonium!!! March needs to get here already! I'll have the Delirium review up this weekend.

I am currently engrossed in Enclave by Ann Aguirre, and it almost makes me want to say, "Tris and Four who?" almost. It's pretty spectacular for those who haven't checked it out yet. I'm going to make a button that says, "We need more fictional boyfriends like Four and Fade," or something like that.

In Deuce’s world, people earn the right to a name only if they survive their first fifteen years. By that point, each unnamed ‘brat’ has trained into one of three groups–Breeders, Builders, or Hunters, identifiable by the number of scars they bear on their arms. Deuce has wanted to be a Huntress for as long as she can remember. As a Huntress, her purpose is clear—to brave the dangerous tunnels outside the enclave and bring back meat to feed the group while evading ferocious monsters known as Freaks. She’s worked toward this goal her whole life, and nothing’s going to stop her, not even a beautiful, brooding Hunter named Fade. When the mysterious boy becomes her partner, Deuce’s troubles are just beginning. Down below, deviation from the rules is punished swiftly and harshly, and Fade doesn’t like following orders. At first she thinks he’s crazy, but as death stalks their sanctuary, and it becomes clear the elders don’t always know best, Deuce wonders if Fade might be telling the truth. Her partner confuses her; she’s never known a boy like him before, as prone to touching her gently as using his knives with feral grace. As Deuce’s perception shifts, so does the balance in the constant battle for survival. The mindless Freaks, once considered a threat only due to their sheer numbers, show signs of cunning and strategy… but the elders refuse to heed any warnings. Despite imminent disaster, the enclave puts their faith in strictures and sacrifice instead. No matter how she tries, Deuce cannot stem the dark tide that carries her far from the only world she’s ever known.

I have some books for trade that I'd like to get out of my bookshelf, some are doubles, some I don't care to keep, some I haven't read. If you're interested check them out. All are paperback unless stated otherwise.

  1. I've heard nothing but good stuff about Enclave... might have to add it to the list.

    Ditto for Delerium, although I already have a copy sitting here waiting. I'm looking forward to your review :)
