Title: Once We Were
Author: Kat Zhang
Series: The Hybrid Chronicles, book #2
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: September 17, 2013

Eva was never supposed to have survived this long. As the recessive soul, she should have faded away years ago. Instead, she lingers in the body she shares with her sister soul, Addie. When the government discovered the truth, they tried to “cure” the girls, but Eva and Addie escaped before the doctors could strip Eva’s soul away.

Now fugitives, Eva and Addie find shelter with a group of hybrids who run an underground resistance. Surrounded by others like them, the girls learn how to temporarily disappear to give each soul some much-needed privacy. Eva is thrilled at the chance to be alone with Ryan, the boy she’s falling for, but troubled by the growing chasm between her and Addie. Despite clashes over their shared body, both girls are eager to join the rebellion.

Yet as they are drawn deeper into the escalating violence, they start to wonder: How far are they willing to go to fight for hybrid freedom? Faced with uncertainty and incredible danger, their answers may tear them apart forever.

I loved the first book in this series.  The idea of a symbiotic relationship between two souls in one body was what drew me to the book, but the writing and the characters are what held my attention.  I cannot wait to read this sequel and see what happens to and between Eva and Addie, not to mention the people they've met along the way.  And I love these covers!

Title: OCD Love Story
Author: Corey Ann Haydu
Series: n/a
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: July 23, 2013

When Bea meets Beck, she knows instantly that he's her kind of crazy. Sweet, strong, kinda-messed-up Beck understands her like no one else can. He makes her feel almost normal. He makes her feel like she could fall in love again.

But despite her feelings for Beck, Bea can't stop thinking about someone else: a guy who is gorgeous and magnetic... and has no idea Bea even exists. But Bea knows a ton about him. She spends a lot of time watching him. She has a journal full of notes. Some might even say she's obsessed.

Bea tells herself she's got it all under control, but this isn't a choice, it's a compulsion. The truth is, she's breaking down... and she might end up breaking her own heart.

Technically, I actually have a review copy of this book, but I'm so excited to read it.  Plus, Jen won't let me start it until I finish my current reads (boo!) so I really am waiting on it.  Lol.  I've always thought she was a bit OCD, so I'm sure I'll be able to relate to this character on some level.  :P

What are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so we can stop by!
