New Release Tuesday...The Ones I'm Psyched For! [4]

Vitro by Jessica Khoury

On Skin Island, even the laws of creation can be broken.

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings—the Vitros—have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to get to Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. With the help of Jim Julien, a young charter pilot, she arrives--and discovers a terrifying secret she never imagined: she has a Vitro twin, Lux, who is the culmination of Corpus's dangerous research.

Now Sophie is torn between reuniting with the mother who betrayed her and protecting the genetically enhanced twin she never knew existed. But untangling the twisted strands of these relationships will have to wait, for Sophie and Jim are about to find out what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.

I first mentioned Vitro by Jessica Khoury on my "Waiting on" Wednesday post and I'm still just as excited to read it. I won a advanced readers copy last week but unfortunately still haven't been able to start it. I have a plane ride coming up and I'm excited to use the time to get back into the world of Origin.

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine #2) by Ransom Riggs

In 1940 after the first book ends, Jacob and his new Welsh island friends flee to London, the Peculiar capital of the world. Caul, a dangerous madman, is Miss Peregrine’s brother, and can steal Peculiar abilities for himself. The Peculiars must fight for survival, again.
I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs this past summer and loved it. So different from the YA literature out there, it stands out among it's peers. When I first read Miss Peregrine I didn't realize it was a series, so I was happily surprised to find out that Hollow City was being released shortly. Ransom Riggs' latest novel is definitely high up on my TBR pile.
