Bumped
Summary from GoodReads -
When a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents are forced to pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society.

Sixteen-year-old identical twins Melody and Harmony were separated at birth and had never met until the day Harmony shows up on Melody’s doorstep. Until now, the twins have followed completely opposite paths. Melody has scored an enviable conception contract
with a couple called the Jaydens. While they are searching for the perfect partner for Melody to bump with, she is fighting her attraction to her best friend Zen, who is way too short for the job.

Harmony has spent her whole life in religious Goodside, preparing to be a wife and mother. She believes her calling is to bring Melody back to Goodside and convince her that “pregging” for profit is a sin. But Harmony has secrets of her own that she is running from.

When Melody is finally matched with the world-famous, genetically flawless Jondoe, both girls’ lives are changed forever. A case of mistaken identity takes them on a journe
y neither could have ever imagined, one that makes Melody and Harmony realize they have so much more than just DNA in common.

I walk by this book everyday at work, yet I have not picked it up. Then I read about The Chaos and in order to read #2, I have to start at the beginning.

Summary from GoodReads -

Whenever Jem meets someone new, no matter who, as soon as she looks into their eyes, a number pops into her head. That number is a date: the date they will die.

Burdened with such an awful awareness, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. But while they’re waiting to ride the Eye Ferris
wheel, Jem notices that all the other tourists in line flash the same number. Today’s number. Today’s date. Terrorists are going to attack London. Jem’s world is about to explode!


Still Missing
Also found this book through it's second, Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens.

Summary from GoodReads -

On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a thirty-two year old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever- patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all. Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.

The truth doesn’t always set you free.

Still Missing is that rare debut find—a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted debut novel.



AND I am number 1 out of 2 on the wait list for Hex Hall on the digital library. YEAH, almost there. Though sadly I think I will have to break down and buy Allison Hewitt is Trapped. Not available in the digital library or in eReader form for my Nook. Life is so rough, right?

I've had Num8ers on my shelf for over a year now, just haven't gotten to it. The premise sounds really interesting which is why I want to read it. I've heard mixed reactions on Bumped. I gotta read it for myself to see. Hope you get to read these soon :)

Numbers sounds good. I haven't read a lot of books by non-American authors, looking forward to it. And I've been hearing a lot of good things about Bumped.

Happy reading :-)

I get so excited reading the storylines of books. I want to run out and buy them, often I do! I just don't read often, hardly at all. Isn't that sad :( I have got to change my ways. How many times have I said that to you? Hope your having a wonderful weekend.

I just won Numbers and The Chaos last week! I still need to read Matched before Bumped!

Barbara said...

You sound exactly like me! I always stumble across book 2 (or in my case, usually 3 or 4) first, then have to go back and find the first one, grr.

Hope you get to read these - and the other books in the series' - soon. :)

I wasn't curious about Numbers until the second book came out. I don't know why. I'm still on the fence for Bumped. Hope it is a good one for you!

Pamela said...

Bumped may be a little far out and futuristic for me, but I definitely want to read Numbers and Still Missing!

I've read Bumped and Still Missing. Still Missing was amazing! Definitely a book to read. Bumped was a disappointment to me.
