The Doubt Factory by Paolo Bacigalupi
Publishing October 14, 2014 by Little, Brown BFYR
Summary from Goodreads:
In this page-turning contemporary thriller, National Book Award Finalist and New York Times bestselling author Paolo Bacigalupi explores the timely issue of how public information is distorted for monetary gain, and how those who exploit it must be stopped.
Everything Alix knows about her life is a lie. At least that’s what a mysterious young man who’s stalking her keeps saying. But then she begins investigating the disturbing claims he makes against her father. Could her dad really be at the helm of a firm that distorts the truth and covers up wrongdoing by hugely profitable corporations that have allowed innocent victims to die? Is it possible that her father is the bad guy, and that the undeniably alluring criminal who calls himself Moses–and his radical band of teen activists–is right? Alix has to make a choice, and time is running out, but can she truly risk everything and blow the whistle on the man who loves her and raised her?
Why it’s my WoW:
This book sounds AWWWWSOME. This sounds like an super cool thriller/mystery/suspense book. The summary sounds mind-blowing; should she TRUST her dad, or sell him out? It has that trademark “Everything Alix knows about her life is a lie.” Something tells me her dad is in some BIIIIIGGGGG trouble. I got an ARC at BEA and i can’t wait to read it and meet Paolo at TTBF14!
The Lost Hero Graphic Novel by Rick Riordan
Publishing October 7, 2014 from Disney-Hyperion
Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea–except that everything seems very wrong.
Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he’s in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn’t recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?
Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What’s troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper’s gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all–including Leo–related to a god.
Why it’s my WoW:
Um. This is a graphic novel of Rick RIORDAN’s book. I like Rick RIordan’s book. I like graphic novels too. Win-win. I’m in (hey, that rhymes! 🙂
Which books are YOU *points in your direction* waiting for?
