You've probably ordered your fall books by now, and I'm sure you've noticed that it's once again slim pickings for the guys. Just browse through any catalogue or online bookstore, look at the covers and you'll know what I mean... Thought I'd compile a list of potentials...
The Death Cure by James Dashner
As much as I love The Maze Runner, one of the complaints of the previous
two books (for me, the 2nd one especially) is that we still aren't any
closer to the truth and finding out just what the heck is going on in
Thomas' world. It's always "We'll tell you later..." This is the last book, so how's the author going to end
this all? I'm on the waiting list at my library. Are you?
Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for
lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and
now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them
with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the
blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test.
Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or
Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they
think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says.
The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than Thomas could ever imagine.
Will anyone survive the Death Cure?
Still remember reading Martyn Pig and loving it, but also remember being disappointed by Being. This one's got a bizarre premise, so we'll see...
What can he do with his new powers -- and what are they doing to him?
the attack, Tom Harvey was just an average teen. But a head-on
collision with high technology has turned him into an actualized App.
Fragments of a shattered iPhone are embedded in his brain. And they're
having an extraordinary effect on his every thought.
Tom knows, sees, and can do more than any normal boy ever could. But
with his new powers comes a choice: To avenge Lucy, the girl he loves,
will he hunt down the vicious gangsters who hurt her? Will he take the
law into his own electric hands and exterminate them from the South
London housing projects where, by fear and violence, they rule?
Not even his mental search engine can predict the shocking outcome of iBoy's actions.
I Am Number Four is still one much sought-over book at the library. Here's the sequel.
I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened
in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a
mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.
Nine of us came here,
but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in
our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding,
blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies
are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number
Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what
about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl
with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are
beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough
to bring the six of us together?
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed.
I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.
And I'm ready to fight.
It begins with a book, the most boring book in the world, a book so
boring no one could ever read it—the perfect place to hide a dangerous
When best friends Luke and Tommy volunteer to help move
books from their library's basement to higher ground during a quick
rising flood, they discover the only surviving copy of the most boring
book in the world: Leonardo's River, lost for over 100 years. The
book is connected to Leonardo da Vinci and is worth millions, so they
return that night to steal it. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones
with that plan. . . .
