Bookish and Bloggish News (#18)

Hello, I cant believe its saturday already! I have had a manic week filled with illness, lots of work and lots of reading. Illness meant that I couldn’t even post my letterbox love last week so I’ll have a larger one tomorrow! Anyway, onto a very rushed news post for you…
Hysteria – Megan Miranda

Hooked on Books, Bloomsbury’s YA division facebook page, announced this week that they have signed Megan Miranda – author of the awesome Fracture – for another book. Hysteria will be published in February next year:
Mallory killed her boyfriend, Brian. She can’t remember the details of that night but everyone know
s it was self-defense, so she isn’t charged. But Mallory still feels Brian’s presence in her life. Is it all in her head? Or is it something more? In desperate need of a fresh start, Mallory is sent to Monroe, a fancy prep school where no one knows her… or anything about her past. But the feeling follows her, as do her secrets. Then, one of her new classmates turns up dead. As suspicion falls on Mallory, she must find a way to remember the details of both deadly nights so she can prove her innocence — to herself and others.

In another riveting tale of life and death, Megan Miranda’s masterful storytelling brings readers along for a ride to the edge of sanity and back again.
