In My Mailbox #2

I'm going to do another of these. . .I don't have any pictures of my beautiful face because they're mostly on Kindle. Have some cover art instead!

Shatter (The Children of Man) by Elizabeth Mock
This book was a free download from Kindle, and I'm really surprised. It's really good writing for free, and I'm about halfway through. I keep wanting to finish it, but I can't find the time! It's the first of a series, and I'm assuming she'll be selling the next one. It has the prophecy/fantasy quest style, but it centers around a large group of people. It's kind of an ensemble cast, which I'm not too used to, but she does it really well.

Gone by Michael Grant
I downloaded this on my new iPhone! It was only $1.99 and it's been on my Goodreads "To Read" list. It's about the disappearance of everyone over fourteen and how the kids react. Some of the kids actually have powers, and different groups are formed in the FAYZ (Fallout Alley Youth Zone). It's counting down to the main character turning fifteen. I think they're going to figure out what happened to the adults eventually.

After the Leaves Fall by Nicole Baart
This was a free read on Kindle, too! It's a coming-of-age novel about a girl who lost her father. It seems kind of short, maybe 50K? But I like it so far, it has a Christian slant and it's been a while since I've read ~inspirational~ fiction.

That's what I've got for now! :)
