Awhile on the Pile/From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday but was also inspired by Rachel at My Reading Pile/Fiktshun. The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review -- or any book that you own and really want to read/review -- but haven't yet got around to reading in order to give the book some extra publicity.

Here's the book I chose to give some extra love this week:

Add to Goodreads
Title:  The Fox Inheritance
Author:  Mary E. Pearson
Series:  Jenna Fox Chronicles #2
Publisher:  Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Publication Date:  August 30, 2011
Source:  ARC & audiobook from publisher

Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries.

Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead.

Everyone except Jenna Fox.

Sometimes, you get sent review copies that you didn't request, and sometimes those ARCs are sequels or later books in a series that you haven't yet started.  That's the case with The Fox Inheritance.  I had always planned to read The Adoration of Jenna Fox, but with all the other books on my plate, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.  And then the publisher of the audiobooks contacted me to offer a copy of The Fox Inheritance for review.  I explained that I would need to either read or listen to the first book before accepting the review copy, but they still ended up sending it.  I had hoped that it would arrive with the first book on audio, but no such luck.

Oh, well.  I will get to it eventually, especially now that a third book is slated for release in 2013.  Maybe this will be another one of those that I wait until the series is complete before I start it.

Have you read this series?  If so, what are your thoughts?


  1. I read both books, and I think that The Fox Inheritance is way better than The Adoration of Jenna Fox. The first one was kind of a let down for me, so... And you don't really have to read the first one to understand the second one. It would help, but it isn't absolutely necessary.

    1. Oh, that's good to know! I'd still feel icky reading a series out of order, tho. I'm just a little weird like that. :)

  2. I've never heard of the series but after reading the description I'm really intrigued. Definitely going on my wishlist. Love the cover too.

  3. Never heard of this one so maybe i'll have a read

  4. Thanks for stopping by! I read the first book in this series and thought it was interesting. This one I don't have yet but I hope it's good. We need to get on our tbr piles it's just so hard sometimes lol.

  5. I haven't heard of this series to be honest but it sounds eerily interesting! I hope you get around to the first book before hearing this one ^^

  6. Ooh -this sounds good- futuristic and creepy!
    Hope you enjoy it when you get to read it!

  7. Sounds really nice and that cover is amazing!

  8. I like the premise!! Thanks for showcasing this.

    Here is my post!

  9. I've never heard of this series but it sounds all kinds of awesome. Here's my [POST].

  10. Holy wow, that gave me chills! I'm gunna have to read that.. :)

  11. I have the first one too, on my shelf. haven't read it yet. I won it in a giveaway.

  12. @Hwa, haha, that's so funny, since I loved the first book and I end up disappointed by this one :p

    I didn't know that there was coming another book :o That makes me happy! Like I said, the first book was amazing and the second was not as good, but it's a great author :) so I'll definitely read it!
