Friday Finds [8]

Haven't done one of these in over a month, so here goes!
Need & Captivate by Carrie Jones
(synopsis for Need)
Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now. She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

I love Maine, so it'll be fun to read a book with a cool setting! And having a book about pixies seems very intriguing. My Goodreads friends' reviews have been all over the place, but most agree that it is entertaining. This is book 1 in a series of 4, I think. The second book, Captivate, was published recently...

Have any of you read this? What did you think?

While I liked the books I would suggest trying to get Need from the library to try it in case you don't like it.

I've seen both books at the bookstore, and had to resist picking them up (limited myself to one book at the time). *sigh*
