August Random Read - Scorched by Mari Mancusi

It's time for my August Random Reads selection (a fun meme hosted by I'm Loving Books). The idea is to pick one random book from your Goodreads To-Read list (using to read within the month.  

As I mention every month, I am in love with this meme!  This is such a great way to make sure that I actually read some of those books that have been in my TBR list for eons.

This month I decided to switch back to just choosing one Random Read.  I limited my Random Read choices to books that I actually own since I have so many of them that I've been wanting to read.  (I did this by just creating a Random Reads shelf on Goodreads).

I only got through one of my picks from last month. I got about 15% in to Darkness & Light when I decided that it just wasn't for me - at least for now. I might try picking it up again at some point in the future. On the other hand, I did really enjoy 15 Minutes by Jill Cooper.  You can check out my review here.

So, here was my August selection:

#93 - Scorched by Mari Mancusi 


Don’t leave me here... It starts with a whisper. At first Trinity thinks she’s going crazy. It wouldn’t be a big surprise—her grandpa firmly believes there’s a genuine dragon egg in their dusty little West Texas town. But this voice is real, and it’s begging for her protection. Even if no one else can hear it...

He’s come from a future scorched by dragonfire. His mission: Find the girl. Destroy the egg. Save the world.

He’s everything his twin brother Connor hates: cocky, undisciplined, and obsessed with saving dragons. 

Trinity has no idea which brother to believe. All she has to go by is the voice in her head—a dragon that won’t be tamed. 

I bought this book at the Barbara Fey Readers Luncheon back in April (and got it signed). It looks really amazing, and I can't wait to read it!
