I am reading this right now & I must say it is a little creepy!

Sixteen-year-old Rinn Jacobs has secrets: One, she’s bipolar. Two, she killed her grandmother.

After a suicide attempt, and now her parents' separation, Rinn and her mom move from California to the rural Ohio town where her mother grew up. Back on her medications and hoping to stay well, Rinn settles into her new home, undaunted by the fact that the previous owner hanged herself in Rinn's bedroom. At school, her classmates believe the school pool is haunted by Annaliese, a girl who drowned there. But when a reckless séance goes awry, and terrible things start happening to her new friends—yet not to her—Rinn is determined to find out why she can’t be "touched" by Annaliese...or if Annaliese even exists.

With the help of Nate Brenner, the hunky “farmer boy” she’s rapidly falling for, Rinn devises a dangerous plan to uncover the truth. Soon reality and fantasy meld into one, till Rinn finds it nearly impossible to tell the difference. When a malevolent force threatens the lives of everyone she cares about--not to mention her own--she can't help wondering: who should she really be afraid of?

Annaliese? Or herself

When Travis returns home from a stint in Afghanistan, his parents are splitting up, his brother’s stolen his girlfriend and his car, and he’s haunted by nightmares of his best friend’s death. It’s not until Travis runs into Harper, a girl he’s had a rocky relationship with since middle school, that life actually starts looking up. And as he and Harper see more of each other, he begins to pick his way through the minefield of family problems and post-traumatic stress to the possibility of a life that might resemble normal again. Travis’s dry sense of humor, and incredible sense of honor, make him an irresistible and eminently lovable hero.

One Moment
This was supposed to be the best summer of Maggie’s life. Now it’s the one she’d do anything to forget.

Maggie Reynolds remembers hanging out at the gorge with her closest friends after a blowout party the night before. She remembers climbing the trail hand in hand with her perfect boyfriend, Joey. She remembers that last kiss, soft, lingering, and meant to reassure her. So why can’t she remember what happened in the moment before they were supposed to dive? Why was she left cowering at the top of the cliff, while Joey floated in the water below—dead?

As Maggie’s memories return in snatches, nothing seems to make sense. Why was Joey acting so strangely at the party? Where did he go after taking her home? And if Joey was keeping these secrets, what else was he hiding?

The latest novel from the author of The Tension of Opposites, One Moment is a mysterious, searing look at how an instant can change everything you believe about the world around you.

For Review
The View
I got asked to review this book, and I must say it sounds pretty interesting so I accepted it.
Check it out:
The View is a romantic mystery thriller. Jack Moore is an innocent, whose life is tragically changed by the after effects of a Mafia hit. His grief is driving him closer towards realizing his suicidal fantasies. He separates himself from his family and moves to the Hamptons for the summer to heal emotionally and physically. It has been six months since the accident and Jack is still searching for answers he doesn't know the questions to.
What hasn't the FBI told him?
Justin Lovett is the prosecuting attorney in the upcoming trial of crime boss Red Cabon who is systematically killing key witnesses, all from his jail cell. How does he know where the hidden witnesses are? Their is a leak in the justice system and Lovett needs to find it before he has no more witnesses.
Then Jack sees Maria from across the bay. He is attracted to her but each sensual stirring is associated with an equally painful memory of what he has lost. Will he ever be able to love again?
Maria has a secret of her own, one that could get her and Jack Killed.
The story accelerates rapidly with Jack and Maria having to rely on the friends they have met in the past few weeks and themselves, for survival.
Well there is my list. I'm not sure if the freebies on amazon are still free or not. I downloaded them to my kindle a couple days ago. 
So what did you get this week? Comment & share :) 
Until then
Happy Reading!
