This week I put a lot of books on my "look into this" list, then I went over to GoodReads.com and whittled it down to three. Here they are:
Troy High by Shana Norris - This book is a modern YA-retelling of the Homer's epic poem, The Illiad, in the form of a high school football rivalry between the Trojans and the Spartans that gets amped up when the head cheerleader of the Spartan squad, Elena, transfers to Troy High School. Found in the side bar of Melody's blog, Melody's Reading Corner, while checking out her Booking Through Thursday meme response.
Crossed Wires by Rosy Thornton - This book tells the charming tale of romance from unlikely sources--a telephone call to the insurance company complaint line. Witty dialogue and memorable characters rated this book high in 90% of people's opinions. Found as a Teaser Tuesday from Margot @ Joyfully Retired.
While I'm Falling by Laura Moriarty - The story of a college junior who's life is falling down around her ears (parents' divorce, school work, boyfriend, family pet?) that leads to investigating the complexities of mother/daughter bonds. (I'm a sucker for college-aged protagonists and books about moms and daughters). Found as a Teaser Tuesday from Staci @ Life in the Thumb.
What did you find this week? Post it over on the Friday Finds meme.
