Michelle Covets: What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang

Why Michelle covets this book: The synopsis reminds me of The Host but I am intrigued just the same. And Never Let Me Go meets His Dark Materials? An interesting pairing.

book coverWhat's Left of Me (Hybrid #1) by Kat Zhang
(HarperTeen; out September 18, 2012)
NEVER LET ME GO meets HIS DARK MATERIALS in a beautiful, haunting YA debut, the first book in The Hybrid Trilogy.

Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t…

For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable–hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet…for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.

What book(s) do you "covet" this week?
Leave a comment with a link so we can check your WoW of the week too.

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series I am going to be doing here. It will feature books I am very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is similar to the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. However, some of the books may already be published and others may still be in pre-order. I will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available. Click on the WoW image on the left to join in!

  7. Oh, this is a really cool idea how you pick some books that are already out in stores as well as ones that aren't released yet -- it might make getting my hands on them a little less painful because I won't have to wait on them! ;)

  17. Reminds us of THE HOST too (our fave Stephenie Meyer book!) so it would be interesting to see what's similar and what's different.
