There’s been a lot of recent book post through my door in the last few weeks, mainly as Christmas is coming and there’s lots of opportunities for more to read, and also, this time, because I just couldn’t resist it when the Harper360YA newsletter came around and offered some amazing YA books for review.  I just had to try my luck and request!  If you don’t know already, Harper360YA books are young adult fiction titles from across the Pond (America) and the book I received this time is one I was really hoping to read as it sounds so interesting…

Lies My Memory Told Me by Sacha Wunsch – Enhanced Memory changed everything.  By sharing someone else’s memory, you can experience anything and everything with no risk at all: learn any skill instnatly, travel the world from home, and safeguard all your most terasured secrets forever.  Nova’s parents invented this technology, and it’s slowly taking over their lives.  Nova doesn’t mind – mostly.  She knows Enhanced Memorty is a gift.
But Kade says Nova doesn’t know the costs of this technology that’s taken the world by storm.  Kade runs a secret channel cataloging real experiences, is always on the move, and is strangely afraid of Nova – even though she feels more comfortable with him than she ever has with anyone.  Suddenly there are things Nova can’t stop noticing, the way her parents don’t meet her eyes anymore, the questions no one wants her to ask, and the relentless feeling that there’s something she’s forgotten…

 

There’s something so appealing about this book blurb, doesn’t it sound so interesting?  I can’t wait to find out what happens, and I love the way the cover image features so many bands all twisting together!  I will be reading this one very soon and will, as always, share my review here as soon as I am able.  There’s going to be a lot of book reviews in this blog before Christmas, and I’m now posting on weekends too (until Christmas), so keep an eye out for everything including this one! 🙂
