I'm trying to get back into the habit of always doing my Wednesday and Friday memes. And I'm going to try to do a future post of this so even though I'm writing it on Tuesday when I have time, it won't be published till Wednesday.
Even though I have so many sequels I'm waiting on, this week's WOW book is by an author that I don't think I've ever read. I got in our database at the bookstore where I work last night and was searching Patrick Carman's books because our Community Relations Manager told me he is coming to the store in September I think to autograph. So I figured I ought to read something of his to see if I wanted to get his autograph and add him as one of my 12 authors for my Meet 12 Authors quest this year. I still didn't decide what book to read before he comes yet, mainly because it was so busy last night I didn't have a lot of time to look through all the books. However, this book popped up as being published later this year, November I believe, and it sounded really good. Here's the synopsis from Goodreads.com:
Fifteen-year-old Will Besting is sent by his doctor to Fort Eden, an institution meant to help patients suffering from crippling phobias. Once there, Will and six other teenagers take turns in mysterious fear chambers and confront their worst nightmares—with the help of the group facilitator, Rainsford, an enigmatic guide. When the patients emerge from the chamber, they feel emboldened by the previous night's experiences. But each person soon discovers strange, unexplained aches and pains. . . . What is really happening to the seven teens trapped in this dark Eden?
Sounds like a good read to me. I'll let you know later which of his books I decide to read before he comes to our store. Have you read any of Patrick Carman's books? If so, what did you think of them? I'd love to hear some other opinions.
