Blurry, fractured memories swam through Sophie's mind, but she couldn't piece them together. She tried opening her eyes and found only darkness. [opening lines from Preface of Keeper of the Lost Cities]
"Miss Foster!" Mr. Sweeney's nasal voice cut through Sophie's blaring music as he yanked her earbuds out by the cords. "Have you decided that you're too smart to pay attention to this information?"Sophie forced her eyes open. [opening of first chapter in Keeper of the Lost Cities]
"Is it going to be hard to get into Foxfire?" she asked."Counciller Bronte will be difficult to impress," Alden admitted. "He feels your upbringing and lack of proper education should disqualify you. Plus, he doesn't like surprises. The Council had no idea you existed until today, and he's more than a little miffed about it. But you only need two out of three votes. Just do the best you can."The Council didn't know about her? Then why did Fitz say they'd been looking for her for twelve years? [excerpt from page 56 of Keeper of the Lost Cities]
Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…
But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.
But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out. [Goodreads Summary]

Are you reading more e-books lately? ((submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)
Surprisingly, I am reading less e-books than I normally do. Usually the e-books easily make up the majority of my reading. However, so far this year, 58.8% of my reading has been print books; digital books have made up 38.2% of my reading; and only 3% in audio.
What format of books have you been reading most of lately?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Be sure and tell me what you are reading and are up to!
