Bookish News!

News for you this week!

my soul to take by rachel vincentRachel Vincent has made available on her site the Netherworld Survival Guide, written by Alec from the Soul Screamers series. UK readers will have the Guide as bonus content in their copies of My Soul to Take, but it's new to everyone else. Taken from Rachel's blog, she says:

"It may take a minute to load. Once it's loaded (it'll look like a file folder), click and drag the center of the folder to open it. The corners of the pages will curl when you hover over them. Again, click and drag to flip the pages. Careful, though. They can be ripped out. If you accidentally "drop" a sheet, reload the page and you should be good to go. Cool, huh?"

Check it out!

Books to check out:

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead - 6th Jan 2011 - click the image to buy a copy.

Miranda's life is starting to unravel. Her best friend, Sal, gets punched by a kid on the street for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The key that Miranda's mum keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then a mysterious note arrives:

'I am coming to save your friend's life, and my own.
I ask two favours. First, you must write me a letter.'

The notes keep coming, and Miranda slowly realises that whoever is leaving them knows things no one should know. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she's too late.
