Earthbound
Title: Earthbound
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: July 30, 2013

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Love, fate, and power collide in this new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike!

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. Tavia will soon discover that she’s an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.

*************************************************
Why I'm excited:

I really enjoyed Pike's Life After Theft (find my review here), so I'm excited to read her next offering. This one sounds so cool, too. Being able to create matter out of nothing has the potential to be awesome. I'm kind of hesitant about any book where the heroine has "visions" of somebody she's never met, but I'm going to give this author the benefit of the doubt. Plus, I'm totally drawn to that cover. So pretty.


What about you? What book are you anxiously waiting for on this lovely May day? Link me up!

  27. That cover is gorgeous. Like you, I'm also wary of another book where a girl is seeing a guy in visions because it happens a lot. But I also like that the protagonist can create matter out of nothing. I just might have to check this out! Great pick! :D

  35. I've never heard about this one before, but the cover o.O I agree, her ability sounds awesome, though the whole evil secret-society thing isn't exactly the newest thing ever. It depends on how she'll do it, I guess :) Thanks for making me aware of the book, and for stopping by yesterday!
