Friday Finds 8/7

Friday Finds is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, and I saw this post on Bookworming in the 21st century!

So here are two books that have caught my eye in other blogs:

Candor by Pam Bachorz

Stepford makes the perfect wife, but Candor teens are changed for life. Welcome to the town of Candor, Florida, where everything is perfect- too perfect. Teens respect their elders, do their chores, and enjoy homework...all because they're controlled by subliminal messages. But there's one holdout: Oscar, the son of the town's founder, who's mastered the art of combating the Messages and getting kids out. For a fee. Oscar is the model Candor teen, and secret saboteur, until Nia moves to the town, and a smitten Oscar can't stand to see her changed. Now Oscar must choose- get Nia out of Candor and lose her forever, or keep her with him, and risk exposing his scheme...and his life. Candor takes the classical sci-fi themes of comformity and mind control and turns them on their head.

Meridian by Amber Kizer

Half-human, half-angel, Meridian Sozu has a dark responsibility.

Sixteen-year-old Meridian has been surrounded by death ever since she can remember. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders would burrow into her bedclothes and die. At her elementary school, she was blamed for a classmate’s tragic accident. And on her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family home—and Meridian’s body explodes in pain.

Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she’s a danger to her family and hustled off to her great-aunt’s house in Revelation, Colorado. It’s there that she learns that she is a Fenestra—the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.

So that's it for this week! What about you bloggers? What are your Friday Finds? lemme know in the comment section below

As Always,
That Chick That Reads


  1. Those both sounds like interesting stories. I hope you enjoy them when they come. My FF post is up.

  2. Meridian sounds like a great read. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Yay! You found something fun to do on my blog! *does a happy dance* I want to read both of those too! I do have Candor at home... must read later.. :)

  4. They both sound good! I like the idea of a "remake" of the Stepford wives, but about teens. Meridian is another good plot, half angel, half human....kind of makes me go...hmm....

  5. Both of these sound great - especially Candor. I will have to add them to my list.

    Here is mine.

  6. I saw this while bloghopping too. Good find!
