BLOG TOUR [Top 10 + Giveaway!] LOST IN THOUGHT by Cara Bertrand

Sententia #1
Release Date: April 25th 2014
Publisher: Luminis Books
Perfect for readers who love books and series such as Vampire Academy, Spellbound, and Sweet Peril, Lost in Thought is a sure winner for young adult readers interested in the paranormal, romance, and action-packed twists
Lainey Young has a secret: she’s going crazy. Everyone else thinks she has severe migraines from stress and exhaustion. What she really has are visions of how people died—or are going to die. Not that she tells anyone that. At age sixteen, she prefers keeping her crazy to herself. When doctors insist she needs a new and stable environment to recover, Lainey’s game to spend two years at a private New England boarding school. She doesn’t really think it will cure her problem, and she’s half right. There is no cure, but as she discovers, she’s not actually crazy.
Almost everyone at Northbrook Academy has a secret too. Half the students and nearly all the staff are members of the Sententia, a hidden society of the psychically gifted. A vision of another student’s impending death confirms Lainey is one of them. She’d like to return the crappy gift of divining deaths with only a touch, but enjoys spending time with Carter Penrose—recent Academy graduate and resident school crush—while learning to control it. Lainey’s finally getting comfortable with her ability, and with Carter, when they uncover her true Sententia heritage. Now she has a real secret. Once it’s spilled, she’ll be forced to forget protecting secrets and start protecting herself.

The Sententia Series has a new little web home at


Lost in Thought is actually available in hardcover/paperback *now* at most retailers. (The ebook is still on preorder until 4/25 .)

Top 10 Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read

I’ve read a lot of books. But not these ones.

1.      Pride and Prejudice. Really, I should just say Jane Austen. Despite that I have a fancy bound copy of her collected works, I’ve never read any of them. Mr. Darcy and I are not acquainted.

2.      Jane Eyre, though I was supposed to have read it in high school. (But I have read Eve Mont’s A Breath of Eyre, which seems like a perfect substitute!)

3.      The Fault in Our Stars and Eleanor & Park. I own them both. But sad and I don’t get on so well together and I just haven’t worked up my strength to read either of them yet.

4.      Brave New World

5.      Lolita

6.      Fifty Shades of Grey and The Davinci Code. Okay, I can believe I’ve never read either of these, not because I’m too good for them, but because I tried and they’re just not my cuppa…but it seems like pretty much everyone else has, so I feel alien sometimes.

7.      The Book Thief. I own this one too.

8.      Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. When I was a young reader, I went straight from Sweet Valley High to Cujo. I skipped right over Judy Blume.

9.      Sinner. Only because it’s not out yet, and I still haven’t convinced Maggie to be my BFF/critique partner.

10.     Gone With the Wind
