In the future you can take pills to alter your DNA giving you all kinds of gifts or powers depending on what you’d like; fairy wings, strength, intelligence, you name it. But they aren’t perfect, you can’t always get the pill you want, and taking too many or the wrong one can kill you. The main character, Silver Melody is proud of her unadjusted state, and against the pills due to her friends death. Silver’s parents happen to be the scientists who developed these pills but they did not intend for their overuse or their side effects. When they refuse to continue their work, her mom is put in jail for treason and her dad is under strict observation, all three end up enemies of the government. Continue reading “The Unadjusteds”
Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. It’s a great way to talk about a book from your TBR list and just kind of show it off. Instead of weekly, I do them monthly right now. It’s one post I’d like to keep up with while my schedule and life keep getting weird. All writers struggle to find time to write so during these challenging weeks any precious time I’ve had has gone to my books rather than this blog.
I know I know, my vast number of readers are so disappointed.
IN ANY CASE, let’s move on so my pick of the month. I’m more excited about this than maybe I should be. I recently read the first book, “City of Ghosts” only because of ghosts & Edinburgh. I’m going to Scotland this year and was looking for any reads that would take me there before my flight. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would and the second book came out just days ago! So here it is:
Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.
She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.
And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.
