My Reading Plan #9



Week #9: - 14/1/2013

1. The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness
The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)
Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him -- something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn't she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd's gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.
2. Kidnap in the Caribbean - Lauren St John
Kidnap in the Caribbean (Laura Marlin Mysteries, #2)
Laura cannot contain her excitement when she wins a trip to the Caribbean for herself and her uncle, Calvin Redfern, especially when her best friend, Tariq, and her three-legged husky, Skye, accidentally find themselves on board too. But when they dock at Antigua, they discover that Calvin Redfern has vanished, and Laura and Tariq are about to be kidnapped by the fearsome Straight A gang. Dramatic escapes, an erupting volcano and a race against time to stop the deadly undercover 'Marine Concern' make Laura's second adventure every bit as exciting as the first. *Description from www.Amazon.com*
3. The Boyfriend List - E.Lockhart
The Boyfriend List
 15 Guys, 11 Shrink Appointments, 4 Ceramic Frogs and Me, Ruby Oliver.Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it's unusual, but give her a break—she's had a rough 10 days.

And make more lists.
