Light (Gone, #6)Date Published: April 2, 2013

It's been over a year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.
In the time since everyperson over the age of fourteen disap-peared from the town of Perdido Beach, California, countless battles have been fought: battles against hunger and lies and plague, and epic battles of good against evil. And now, the gaiaphage has been reborn as Diana's malicious mutant daughter, Gaia. Gaia is endlessly hungry for destruction. She yearns to conquer her Nemesis, Little Pete, and then bend the entire world to her warped will. As long-standing enemies become allies, secrets are revealed and unexpected sacrifices are made. Will their attempts to save themselves and one another matter in the end, or will the kids of Perdido Beach perish in this final power struggle?
Light, the sixth and final book in the New York Times bestselling Gone series by Michael Grant, creates a masterful, arresting conclusion to life in the FAYZ.

Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her.

Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and today's theme is "Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character."

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)1. Will Herondale, The Infernal Devices- He's gorgeous, reckless, caring, brilliant, funny, and a generally wonderful character. He sings about demon pox for crying out loud! He's got dark hair and bright blue eyes and he's Welsh. What more could you want? 

2. Noah Shaw, Mara Dyer- Tall, unkempt, gorgeous, messy brown hair. Think prep school boy who's just really rumpled. He's loaded, but drives a crappy Prius. He doesn't care about himself and fights a lot (which, is totally sexy). He's clever and caring and wonderful and protective and I want one. He also smokes, but apparently (according to Mara), he looks good doing it.
