Nightshade (Nightshade #1) by Andrea Cremer

Goodreads Description:
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything--including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

Glimmerglass (Faeriewalker #1) by Jenna Black


Goodreads Description:
Dana Hathaway doesn’t know it yet, but she’s in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, Dana decides she’s had it with being her mother’s keeper, so she packs her bags and heads to stay with her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl—she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.

Soon, she finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone wants something from her, even her newfound friends and family. Suddenly, life with her alcoholic mom doesn't sound half bad, and Dana would do anything to escape Avalon and get back home. Too bad both her friends and her enemies alike are determined not to let her go . . .


Okay, you know the drill...what little gems are you reading?

Oh my gosh, so jealous of you getting Nightshade! That's definitely one for my TBR, it sounds AMAZING.

Great picks! :D

Ah pretty books. I got Nightshade as well. I also sneakily ordered The Mockingbirds. Oops, I spy a parental eye roll in my future. :)

Only 1K more on the wip and then I can do some reading! *happy dance.

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.

I have A Swift Pure Cry by Siobhan Dowd on my bedside table. I started it last night. The writing is just -- *sigh* -- so good!

Happy reading!!

I haven't been reading too much but lately because of nano prepping. Although I am going through Hunger Games and The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.

Lisa Gail Green said...

My newest acquisitions are The Lost Hero and Hush Hush. I'm so excited to read them both!!

Janet Johnson said...

That second one sounds interesting. (I've already read the first). I am reading: "I am an evil genius and I want to be your class president." Very funny.
