As promised, this is the cover for Sentient – Book Two of the Mentalist Series. Like it? I really hope so! It’s supposed to follow on from the theme of Aversion’s cover. Thanks to everyone who got involved in the design process. You know who you are…love you guys to bits!

Now for more book info –

Book Description:
Mastering her Progressive Empath abilities isn’t going as well as Gemma hoped. In fact, months after finding out what she really is, she still has no clue what this truly means. All she can do is wait to see if any new abilities will eventually manifest. Things aren’t going great with Russ either. Unsure of how to handle her Sentient Link with him, she tries to integrate herself in his busy social life but struggles to adjust to her new circumstances.
When she is plagued by recurring nightmares, Gemma realises things are changing and knows she has to do something, fast. The arrival of two sets of strangers in town, both offering the much needed assistance she needs to unearth her powers, escalates the situation even further. Gemma attempts to decipher whose intentions are genuine, but does she have enough time to figure out who has her best interest at heart?
Genre:
YA Paranormal Romance

Expected Release Date:

28th October 2013

And finally, the giveaway. One lucky reader has the chance to win a $20 Amazon Giftcard and three readers will be able to win e-copies of Sentient as well.

Can you top my 6?

A follow up to my Can you top my 28? post from September. I thought I did okay having read just over 1 in 4 of the books on that list so when the official list for World Book Night 2012 was released earlier this week, I was excited about the prospects of my ratio going up.

http://www.worldbooknight.org/about-world-book-night/wbn-2012/the-books

And yes, I was happy to note I have read 6 out of 25. Yay! Not quite 1 in 4 but close.

Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen (loved it but then I love almost all Austen books)

The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho (overrated but not a bad book)

A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens (sad sad book but a good read)

The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic – Sophie Kinsella (infuriating protagonist but I’ve read all the books in the series bar one so that’s saying something)

The Time Traveller’s Wife – Audrey Niffeneger (very dark but good story, don’t watch the movie, read the book!)

Good Omens – Terry Prachett and Neil Gaiman (probably my favourite on the list, really funny, dark and strangely thought provoking)

I think I have read Rebecca but can’t quite remember it so I haven’t added it to my list. Also I’m a huge Steven King fan so I’ve watched Misery but, again, can’t remember if I read it so I’ve taken it off my list.

Can anyone top my 6?

[If the list includes movies adaptations I’ve watched, my count goes up to 10]

Can you top my 28?

Those of you who read my Stop and Stare post from May will know that I got involved with the World Book Night movement in March this year. It was loads of fun and I might sign up again to participate next year (if I have the time and courage) but they are currently in the process of finding new books for next year’s big giveaway and I’ve been asked to vote for my top ten books from a list of 100 books.

I was pleased to find that I have read 28 of the books on the list (not sure why they doubled up on The Time Traveller’s Wife and Little Women but hey, I’ve read them both so counting them both) but then found out one of my colleagues has read 55 of them and I didn’t’ feel so smug after all (she is a little older so I guess she’s allowed to pip me on this one).

Any readers out there who want to have a count for fun?

PS – it doesn’t count if you’ve watched a movie or television adaptation of the book. If we add those, I’d be closer to 40.
