New Release Day!

April 16, 2013 Uncategorized 4

Today is the official release day of TAKEN by Erin Bowman, published by HarperTeen! This book has been on one of my Waiting on Wednesday posts recently. I’ve been dying to read this. Every time someone posts a review, I go and read it to see how it is. I would go out and buy it today but I have a lot of other books I need to review this month that I told authors and blog tour hosts I would read. I’ll definitely be picking it up next month, though! Anybody else excited about it like I am?!

Summary: “There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends…and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?”

    When I first heard about it, I was excited to read this. I’ve read both kinds of reviews, good and bad so I’m curious to see what I think of it. I don’t know when I’ll get to it though but I’m sure you’ll read it first so I’ll look forward to your review 😀

      I’ve read the same kinds. It seems like it’s one extreme or the other: either they absolutely love it or it barely scraped up a 3 on their review scale. I’m just going to keep being excited about it until I can see for myself haha!

      Yeah, I think we should just wait till we start reading the first page so we can get excited lol. Well I’m excited for the 3 Divergent book, but it’s different because it’s a series so we already know the author and the story. She cried, hopefully she didn’t kill anyone important because if she did I might end up not liking it! Sorry, it’s just so exciting to know the new title 😀
