Torn Apart by Sharon Sala:
The twister that touches down in Bordelaise, Louisiana, not only destroys the calm of a summer Sunday, it pierces the soul of Katie Earle, whose young son Bobby goes missing…and it wasn't the storm that took him.

Katie's first thought is that her estranged husband, J.R., saw his chance and grabbed Bobby to spite her. But the reality goes beyond that to truly horrifying, and now her nightmare is only just beginning. The real terror will begin when the tornado's wreckage is cleared away and the kidnapper can escape with his prize.

The agony of uncertainty grows with every passing hour as Katie and J.R. reunite with a single, desperate purpose: to find their son before he slips from their grasp…forever.




The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong:
Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.

Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret—and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark.







Remember Me by Christopher Pike:
She won't let them forget.

Shari Cooper wakes up dead. The last thing she can remember is falling from a balcony during her friend's party. Her death has been ruled a suicide, but Shari knows she was murdered. All of her closest friends are now suspects. As she tries to find her killer from the other side, she discovers her friends may not have been so loyal to her after all. Now, Shari is not just out for justice, she's out for revenge?

  1. The Gathering and Remember Me am putting on my own wishing list. The first book Torn Apart is way too intense for my reading because of the subject matter, I have a hard time with kidnapping stories in the news much less in a book to be honest...

    Thanks for stopping by mine today Amy.

  3. OMG, Remember Me. That has to be my all time favorite Christopher Pike book. I use to read that book when I was a teenager a billion times. You'll love it.

  5. I have never read a Kelly Armstrong book, but gosh they have such nice covers. I guess it is time to give one of her books a try?

  6. @ Manga Maniac: Seriously, you REALLY need to read her books! The first of her adult series (Women of the Otherworld) is BITTEN and the first of her YA series (The Darkest Powers) is THE SUMMONING! I hope you love her writing as much as I do!
