Coming Attractions: Reboot

**Before we get into today's Coming Attraction, I have a ? for you. I've been thinking about changing "Coming Attractions" to a "Book of the Day" feature, spotlighting a different book every single day (either all week or M-F). The book could be upcoming or backlisted, but the point is just to get it on your radar, see what people think of it, etc. Is this too much? I don't want to be all BARRAGE OF BOOKS but there are a lot of books out there I'd like to get out there.

I have to say, I'm definitely curious about Amy Tintera's sci-fi debut, Reboot - parts of the premise definitely sound awesome, like the fact that the length of time a reboot is dead determines their humanity and deadliness.
But then the synopsis seems to take a turn for the every-other-YA-novel-of-ever, when an attractive young mayun comes into the picture and the girl has to question errthing about her life and decide whether to give it all up for wuv.
Also: Wren and Callum.

So. I'm a bit on the fence, but still definitely enough on the intrigued side to give it a try.  How 'bout you? Are you guys going to be picking this one up, or waiting for the reviews to roll in?

Reboot by Amy Tintera
Sci-fi, 352 pages
Expected publication: May 7th 2013 by HarperTeen
Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation). 
Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum. 
The perfect soldier is done taking orders.


  1. I REALLY want to read this one. Like you said, the premise is so unique. And that cover is amazing.

  2. I feel like a book of the day feature would be a bit much. I mean, that's just SO much content, you know? The benefit of sporadic posts is that the ones you highlight are the ones you're most excited about.

    Alternatively, you could do multiple books in one post?


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
