Stacking the Shelves #38

IMG06851-20130303-1310.jpg
Hi there! So yesterday, I went shopping, and I saw my most favourite book store ever was having a BOOK SALE. I started totally freaking out and doing my happy dance (you don't want to know what that looks like. Trust me.) whilst my parents were staring at me as if I were mad..>.< Anyway, I told myself that I wasn't going to buy anything, that I was just going to browse. But THEN I saw that the sale would end tomorrow (today) and I knew I would have to get me something. Soooo, I bought me four books, and I'm totally excited! :D

Bought: 
1. Under the Never Sky - Veronica Ross
Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)
WORLDS KEPT THEM APART.
DESTINY BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER.
Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.
Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He's searching for someone too. He's also wild - a savage - but might be her best hope at staying alive.
If they can survive, they are each other's best hope for finding answers.
2. Tempest - Julie Cross
Tempest (Tempest, #1)
The year is 2009.  Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.
That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.
Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.
But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler.  Recruit… or kill him.
Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.
3. Muddle Earth Too - Paul Stewart 
Muddle Earth Too
Muddle Earth needed a hero. Instead it got ordinary schoolboy Joe Jefferson...
Joe was just trying to build a flat-pack wardrobe when he and his sulky sister fell through a portal and landed in mad, bad Muddle Earth. But Muddle Earth needs Joe. The great Goblet of Porridge has been stolen, a swarm of dragons is on the attack and Joe's sister has disappeared with a thumbsucking barbarian vampire! Can Joe save the day before everyone gets barbecued?

4. The Spell Book of Listen Taylor
The Spell Book of Listen Taylor
Since Listen Taylor's dad started dating a Zing, her life has gone from unusual to downright weird. The Zing family live in a world of unexplained projects, coded conversations and start-of-the-art surveillance equipment - all designed to protect the Zing family secret, a secret so huge it draws them all to the garden shed every Friday night. And Listen isn't invited. Listen herself has things she'd rather keep hidden, including an unconventional spell book that might just be the answer to her problems . . .
For Review:
5. The Accidental Time Traveller - Janis Mackay
Accidental Time Traveller
Saul is on his way to the corner shop on a seemingly ordinary day, when a girl appears suddenly in the middle of the road. She does not understand traffic or the things she sees in shops, and she’s wearing a long dress with ruffled sleeves. Her name is Agatha Black.
Agatha Black is from 1813, and Saul needs to find a way to get her back to her time. With help from his buddies Will and Robbie, he tries to figure out how to make time travel happen.
This face-paced, time-traveling adventure from Janis Mackay (author of the Magnus Fin books) is full of funny misunderstandings and gripping action.
