Feature & Follow Friday

Hi Everyone! 

 This is my first post on Catching Books and I thought what better way to start off then a Feature and Follow Friday. This is Hosted By Alison Can Read and Parajunkee



 If you could trade places with any character who would it be and why?


This is a very hard question because there's so many strong female heroines I'd definitely want to be. The two characters that come to mind when I thought about this question was Anna from The Sweet Evil Trilogy and Wendy from the Trylle Trilogy.  Ultimately, I think I would want to trade places,the most, with Anna for a couple of reasons. Anna also has the strongest supporters she has her mom Patty, her dad and not to mention Kaiden.  Come on who wouldn't want to have Kaiden and Jay in their life? I have to say although her life is certainty not the safest she still has fun. Anna ultimately is a strong, brave, selfless character who is willing to give up quite a bit to do what's right for everyone else.

          Who would you want to trade places with?

New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping story about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident.

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late.

In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

My Thoughts:
I can't wait to see what happens with Nick and Dara in this exciting mystery novel! I have been in love with Lauren Oliver's writing since Before I Fall, and I'm sure that Vanishing Girls won't disappoint.

There's death all around us.
We just don't pay attention.
Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn't look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she's just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that's all she'll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there's a secret she hasn't told anyone-a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.

Lex's brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn't have to be real to keep you from moving on.

From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand, The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a gorgeous and heart-wrenching story of love, loss, and letting go.

My Thoughts:
Is it just me, or does this book sounds great? While I wasn't the biggest fan of the Unearthly series, Cynthia Hand's writing has always impressed me. I can't wait to read this intriguing story!

Valentina Cruz no longer exists.

One moment, she was wrapped in Emilio’s arms, melting into his kiss. The next, she was witnessing the unthinkable: a murder in cold blood, ordered by her father and carried out by her boyfriend. When Emilio pulled the trigger, Valentina disappeared. She made a split-second decision to shed her identity and flee her life of privilege, leaving the glittering parties and sultry nightlife of Miami far behind.

She doesn’t know how to explain to herself what she saw. All she knows now is that nothing she believed about her family, her heart, or Emilio’s love, was real.

She can change her name and deny her past, but Valentina can’t run from the truth. The lines between right and wrong, and trust and betrayal, will be blurred beyond recognition as she untangles the deceptions of the two men she once loved and races to find her own truth.

My Thoughts:
I recently happened to find this book online, and now it's high on my list. I love YA mysteries, particularly when they have a bit of thriller in them. I can't wait to read this book when it comes out!

Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.

My Thoughts:
What a gorgeous cover! I can't wait to read this book in a few months!
