...aka a few books I picked up at the library this week

Title: Unpredictable
Author: Eileen Cook

Sophie Kintock isn't crazy, she just wants her guy back. And posing as a psychic to give his new girlfriend a face reading designed to break them up isn't going overboard, is it? Don't answer that. Faking psychic powers turns out to be easy and fun, especially after a few lessons from Nick, the cute (if a bit nerdy) skeptic, who knows all the tricks of the trade. But her readings do a lot more than she could have predicted, and soon Sophie needs to figure out whether the answers lie in the stars-or in herself.

--I just got done reading Eileen Cook's latest novel, What Would Emma Do? (review being post soon), and I love this author! The plot to this story sounds quirky and fun, a read I'm looking forward too.




Title: Ink Exchange
Author: Melissa Marr

--I love Melissa Marr's imagination! This is the follow up book to Wicked Lovely, if you have not picked that one up, then I highly suggest you do so! Funny story, I've checked out Ink Exchange at the library four different times. Each time something has always happened where I was never able to read it. I almost bought it, but decided to give it one last shot. So this book is the next to read!




Title: Need
Author: Carrie Jones
Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal. Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.
--Even though I try not to judge a book by it's cover, the ones that are so eye catching like this one make me want to read it even more! Plus the fact that I've seen tons of reviews saying how wonderful it is. Already I'm interested in knowing why this lil pixie boy is tailing Zara.
