Last Summer

Title: Last Summer
Author: Rebecca A Rogers
Goodreads Summary: All Chloe Sullivan wants to do is get through the summer. Her life has been in disarray for more than six months, and she knows the only reason her parents made one final trip to Sandy Shores is because of her. They are, after all, two seconds away from filing for divorce. When Chloe stumbles upon a boy in one of her childhood hangouts, she’s in for more than just a relaxing summer vacation.
Logan Andrews is exhausted, famished and, quite frankly, kaput. His parents kicked him out when he refused to attend a rehabilitation program for his drug addiction. Now, he wishes he would’ve listened; he’d be receiving appropriate medical care rather than living in a dingy, godforsaken shack, holing up from money-hungry drug dealers.
Logan’s godsend arrives in the form of Chloe, who can’t hold her tongue when it comes to matters of the heart. They’re both in for a rude awakening when Logan’s past catches up to them, though. Can they escape the drug dealers showing up at every twist and turn, or will things end much worse than they ever imagined?
WARNING: contains strong language, drug use, and sexual situations, including an explicit sex scene and a near-rape scene. Mature audiences only. 17+

Glitch (Glitch, #1)Title: Glitch
Author: Heather Anastasiu
Goodreads Summary:  In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or “glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.

{ Thoughts }

I’m participating in the book tour for Last Summer so I got a personalised copy which was signed by the author, along with two bookmarks. YAY! Thankfully my review pile is getting smaller and smaller, but that means I have less and less to post about on Sundays! Sadface. This week I’ve only got one book and I think I was drawn to it because of the really innocent and loving cover pic which juxtaposes with the warning at the end of the book description. I’m hoping that this provides me with a good summer teen read because I haven’t read one of those yet this summer, but I’ll have to wait and see.

Glitch was the last book I posted as part of the ‘Waiting on Wednesday’ meme so I was so excited when I got an invite to participate in the book tour! This book sounds really similar to The Host by Stephanie Meyer and I’ve been seeing a lot of new YA books around this genre so maybe that’ll be the next big craze. Who knows.
