On to my Bookanista Shout out for MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza:


Release Date: 03/12/2013


Basic Blurb: (from Amazon)
Mila was living with her mother in a small Minnesota town when she discovered she was also living a lie. 


She was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was never supposed to remember the past.

Now she has no choice but to run--from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much, and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology.

Evading her enemies won't help Mila escape the cruel reality of what she is and cope with everything she has had to leave behind. However, what she's becoming is beyond anyone's imagination, including her own, and that just might save her life. 
Why I liked it: 
This was a good book, filled with mystery, a little romance, and enough angst to know you are reading a YA book! The Sci-Fi plot pulls on the familiar theme of human emotions and robotics, melting the ideas of the Adoration of Jenna Fox (one of my fav books ever) with the mystery of Bourne Identity. It is an enjoyable read that pulls you in early and holds you through the end of the story. Complete as a stand-alone, I am excited to see how  Debra evolves the series.

Definitely worth checking out!

But don't take my word for it, read it for yourself. OR, enter the giveaway by following this blog and leaving a comment. I will select one random commenter to receive the copy. Open to US residents only (sorry - postage, and all). Giveaway ends Sunday night at midnight.

What are you guys reading these days? Now that I am cleaning off my bookshelf and Kindle I will be needing some new books to read :D
