Stacking the Shelves: Thanks, Free Shelf at the Gym!

Happy Saturday and happy Stacking the Shelves. It is BEAUT-I-FUL in NYC this weekend, and I hope you are all treated to as lovely a fall weekend. Watch out Pumpkin Latte, my book and I are coming for you!

Devoured
Last week I went to the gym and a book in the "free" pile caught me eye. "THAT looks like something I would read" (aka it looks like it is for teens).  I was right. So I snagged Devoured by Amanda Marrone for free. But this story gets better. I got home and realized the book was signed. How fun is that? We often feature books that are "old" here at YAF and WS, and this goes to show there is fun karma for loving all books regardless of when they were published! :-)

Megan’s twin sister Remy died in an accident nine years ago, and she’s been haunting her ever since. Knowing how crazy that sounds, Megan keeps this secret to herself and tries to lead a normal life. But when she takes a summer job at Land of Enchantment to keep an eye on her new boyfriend and his lovesick best friend, Samantha, she meets fellow employee Luke who can see Remy, too. Things get even twistier because Megan’s new friend Ari is sporting a massive crush on Luke, who seems to be developing a massive crush on Megan…making for a love triangle that’s positively possessed.  Megan wants to keep her distance from Luke, but when Remy’s visions get crazy violent; she knows she needs his help. Because someone’s definitely in danger...the only question is who? (GoodReads)
