Author: Jandy Nelson
Release Date: September 16, 2014

Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways...until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else--an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah's story to tell. The later years are Jude's. What the twins don't realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they'd have a chance to remake their world. (Summary from Goodreads)

I usually enjoy books about siblings. From the description the 1/2 and 1/2 format of the book should be interesting, especially with the idea that only truth we know is our own so we are always missing pieces of the full story.


Author: Melissa Marr
Release Date: September 16, 2014
Published by: HarperCollins

When Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital, she's confused--who in her sleepy little North Carolina town could have hit her with their car? And why? But before she can consider the question, she finds that she's awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people's deaths when they touch her. While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old flame, reappears, and the two must traverse their rocky past as they figure out how to use Eva's power to keep her friends--and themselves--alive. But while Eva and Nate grow closer, the killer grows increasingly frantic in his attempt to get to Eva. (Summary from Goodreads)
