Donate Body to Science. Check.
When seventeen-year-old Kaitlyn checked the box, she never suspected she’d have her life–and her body–stolen from her. She awakens one day in a secret laboratory to discover that her body is now half-robot and is forced to hide her own secret: that she still has human emotions and a human mind. If the scientists who made her find out, they’ll erase what remains of who she was.

Kaitlyn finds an unlikely ally in Lucas, a handsome, brilliant scientist who can’t get over the guilt he feels knowing she was once a vibrant, beautiful young woman. He never expected a science project to affect him the way she does. As he tries to help her rediscover her past, he finds himself falling for the brave girl struggling to find her place and acceptance between the human and computer worlds.


Abbie and I will be reading this on September 8th 2013. Everybody welcome ☺

I'll be starting this one tomorrow night instead. Need to finish blurred, and i'll be out all tomorrow morning.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
Okay ☺ I need to finish blurred and no one's angel. it would be a lot easier if my kindle wasn't otherwise occupied though!


Abbie | 27856 comments Mod
Starting this one now. :)


Abbie | 27856 comments Mod
...Well, i was going to start!
Cousin come round, urgh!


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
I read the first few pages earlier but got distracted. It didn't really grab me. I'll start again a bit later ☺


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
18% Really not feeling this at all. I can't even put my finger on what it is, it just isn't right. (view spoiler) I feel a bit ineloquent today for some reason.


Abbie | 27856 comments Mod
I'm not getting on well with it either.

I like the robot at the end of the chapters, it's cute.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
I thought that too ☺

32% - Still not really liking it.. I think it might be because of how robotic Kaitlyn is. I know it's the plot, but i read what she says in a robotic type of way, and it's making me bored!
It's like listening to my science teacher all over again. (His voice always stayed on one level, even when he shouted at pupils! Always made me sleepy.)


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
I'm bored.

43% - $375 for a bottle of perfume?! crazy!


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
30% She's just such a robot "Do you like trees?", "They are needed for clean air so yes."
How can he fancy her? He probably gets the hots for the latest vax too.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
33% I just don't feel the sincerity when he tells her that she's the most beautiful woman he has ever laid eyes on.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
also, if she's more machine than man, and has these plastic bits, how does she still have blood for them to sample? cause they were taking it from her arm? and if her heart is now a machine rather than an organ, how does it know to pump faster when she exercises? is there even any need for it to pump faster if she's a machine? surely her brain still needs oxygen? how do they keep her machine parts working? what fuel does she use? I'm so ick about this book.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
I wonder how human-like she is? I thought it odd in this other book that I read that they made robots capable of having sex.

Abbie | 27856 comments Mod
There's hardly explanations at all.
I didn't feeling the sincerity either.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
50% they're going to play paintball now?


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
what an utter load of poo. this is most definitely a contender for the worst book of the year for me.


message 20: by Abbie (new) - rated it 1 star

Abbie | 27856 comments Mod
I'm still like 50% in.
Need to go shopping so i'll finish it later.

It's rubbish though. :(


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
utter pants.

After the ending was the worst one i read this year, but second place is defiantly between this or Earth girl!


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
Ah yes, I had forgotten after the ending was this year. other bad ones were After Obsession by Carrie Jones Gifts of the Blood (The Angel's Edge, #1) by Vicki Keire The Deception by Emma Riley Water by Natasha Hardy Yesterday's Gone Episode 1 (Yesterday's Gone, #1) by Sean Platt Kiss of the Butterfly by James Lyon Viral Nation by Shaunta Grimes Fire (Elements of Power, #1) by Heather James Gemini Rising by Eleanor Wood Black Spring by Alison Croggon Indelible (The Twixt, #1) by Dawn Metcalf

actually, this could turn into a loooooooong list!

Abbie | 27856 comments Mod
I really need to read Gemini rising to get rid of it! Will most likely be a DNF though!
I also really need to read a few angel books for the same reason, Angel ones are getting worse and worse!

Going to read a bit more of this now.

I quite liked Lash (Broken Angel, #1) by L.G. Castillo which was an angel book. The author is sending me the sequel when it releases though so I'm hoping that will be good too!

69% - Did something actually just happen? I liked how she helped the woman.. Story is still rubbish though.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83082 comments Mod
I had lost the will to live by that point.
