Thought of the moment....

No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

The Possession Show the Love Tour!!

REPOST:
Oh Yeah Baby! I can no longer hold it in. I have to let you all know. I was one of the chosen. One of the what? One of the chosen. The one and only wonderful Ali Cross gave the me awesome opportunity to read the ARC of Elana Johnson's debut novel POSSESSION!



Here is a taste of what the book is about by what is posted on the author's page:

Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself. 


But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn. 



This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.



My take:

Don't get me started about how amazing I thought this book was...okay do! :) So meet Violet, this girl is wicked cool and quirky. She lost her sister to a society she doesn't understand, a father who went MIA and a mother who doesn't care for her. Violet (Vi) is matched with Zenn whom she has known as her soul mate for years. Control or be controlled is the premise of this book. Duty or Death!

Vi has many choices to make and they weigh heavy on her. Insert another hottie hunk here (Jag), who throws a few curves into Vi's life. Some sizzling connections and a power hungry monster and a few intriguing people from her past lie in Vi's path, forcing her to make choices she doesn't want to make.

Anyone who is interested in reading about people who can use mind control, voice influence, can sense technical power sources, see premonitions and all the latest tech gear than you really want to either pre-order or go and pick this one up. It hits stores on June 7, 2011.
