Hey Book Nerds! ^.^ How are you all doing? Have you had a good week? :) I finally managed to post my review of Magic Study yesterday, I totally forgot about it until last night - so if any of you are interested in reading it, don't forget to check it out. ^^; Anyway, I'm really behind with my reading this month, I've only read four books, and only a small amount of my current read; Pretties by Scott Westerfeld. Out of the four, I've only read two review copies - so my wrap-up for this month is going to be really small. >.< I really don't know where the month has gone; I'm going to have to make sure to read lots next month to make up for it! I'm also really late in filming my November book haul, I'm really sorry about this - I've been meaning to do it for the past week, but I've had a cold with a sore throat and didn't feel up to it. I'm hoping to get it done this weekend though. That's it for today, hope you all enjoy this Friday Finds post; I haven't done one in ages! :D
Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) by Lili St. Crow.
In Strange Angels, Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.) Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?
Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles, #1) by Kresley Cole.
She could save the world—or destroy it.
Sixteen-year-old Evangeline "Evie" Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.
But she can't do either alone.
With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can't totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?
Who can Evie trust?
As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it's not always clear who is on which side.
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst.
Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire... fond of blood, allergic to sunlight, and mostly evil... until the night a sparkly unicorn stabs her through the heart with his horn. Oops.
Her family thinks she was attacked by a vampire hunter (because, obviously, unicorns don't exist), and they're shocked she survived. They're even more shocked when Pearl discovers she can now withstand the sun. But they quickly find a way to make use of her new talent. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl's family to host his feast. If Pearl enrolls in high school, she can make lots of human friends and lure them to the King's feast -- as the entrees. The only problem? Pearl's starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends—especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache—to be slaughtered? Then again, she's definitely dead if she lets down her family. What's a sunlight-loving vamp to do?
Seraphina (Seraphina, #1) by Rachel Hartman.
Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.
Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life.
Summaries from Good Reads. I think all of these books look really fantastic! I've not read really any dragon books before, but I've heard some great things about Seraphina so I really want to get myself a copy when I have the money! For once, I think the UK has the better cover this time! I've also been hearing a hell of a lot about Poison Princess over the last month or so, mainly because I think the sequel was recently released - so I looked it up on Good Reads and I think it looks really awesome - so I need to buy that one soon too. :D As for the other two, I think they just look really fun and interesting and want to pick them up when I have the money in the future. :3 Have you read any of my finds this week? Let me know! :)
What are your Friday Finds for this week? Leave me a comment or a link to your blog post and I'll be sure to check it out! ^.^ Happy reading! (:
