This weekly meme is hosted by The Story Siren-check it out here!

For review:

Devoured by Amanda Marrone

Megan takes a summer job at the Land of Enchantment amusement park so she can keep an eye on her new boyfriend, Ryan, and his clearly-in-love-with-him best friend, Alexa. Okay, so Megan's not off to the best start. But things get even twistier when Megan starts seeing the ghost of her dead twin sister. Turns out, fellow employee Luke can see her too. Add in the fact that Megan's new friend Ari seems to have a crush on Luke, who seems to have a crush on Megan...well, it makes for a love triangle that's positively possessed.

It sounds great-I can't wait to read it!


Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more. In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.

I'm reading this now as a part of the Diversity Challenge over at ColorOnline. And I'm LOVING it!

Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols

All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn't make it back.

John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge -- and over...

Because my blogger is being ridiculous and I can't upload anymore photos without an hour ordeal here's what else I got:

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
A Cool Moonlight by Angela Johnson
Dream Factory by Brad Barker and Heather Hepler
Repossessed by A.M. Jenkins

A great batch of books! :)

Happy Reading!
