From the Review Pile (8-9-12)

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

This is my first time participating in this meme. :) I choose to dust off Unraveling from my shelf:

Goodreads summary: Two days before the start of her junior year, seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killed—as in blinding light, scenes of her life flashing before her, and then nothing. Except the next thing she knows, she’s opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school whom Janelle has never talked to, leaning over her. And even though it isn’t possible, Janelle knows—with every fiber of her being—that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.

But her reincarnation, and Ben’s possible role in it, is only the first of the puzzles that Janelle must solve. While snooping in her FBI-agent father’s files for clues about her accident, she uncovers a clock that seems to be counting down to something—but to what? And when someone close to Janelle is killed, she can no longer deny what’s right in front of her: Everything that’s happened—the accident, the murder, the countdown clock, Ben’s sudden appearance in her life—points to the end of life as she knows it. And as the clock ticks down, she realizes that if she wants to put a stop to the end of the world, she’s going to need to uncover Ben’s secrets—and keep from falling in love with him in the process.

I got this ARC from a friend of mine about a month or so ago...yep still haven't gotten around to it for some reason. It looks and sounds good, and it's the start of a new series, but I kind of forgot about it! Also, I have a thing for blue covers; I just seriously love them. It might have something to do with my favorite color being any thoughts? Should I move this up on the to-read list? I don't know anyone personally who has read it, but I've read a few promising reviews.



  1. It sounds like a good book. I would definitely move it up on the reading list.

  2. I just finished it last week. It was really good. If you liked the TV shows Roswell, X-files or will REALLY like this book.
