Yesterday I was killing some time in Books A Million, which I should never do! First I picked up some Twilight stickers. My sister just finished the series and she’s going through serious withdrawals so I bought her a “Caution: I drive like a Cullen” bumper sticker and she LOVED it. I just got a plain ‘ol Twilight sticker for myself. I couldn’t resist!
I had the Hunger Games picked up but I decided I could probably get it cheaper on Amazon so I got The Fetch by Laura Whitcomb instead. Here’s the blurb:Calder is a Fetch, a death escort, the first of his kind to step from Heaven back to Earth.The first to fall in love with a mortal girl. But when he climbs backwards out of that Death Scene, into the chaos of the Russian Revolution, he tears a wound in the ghost realm, where the spirits begin a revolution of their own.
I loved A Certain Slant of Light so I really hope this one is as good!
I should have left the bookstore then, with just one book but of course I didn’t. I came across Dead if I Do by Tate Hallaway. The fourth book in the Garnet Lacy series due out on May 5th. 12 days early!! So I HAD to get it!
Witch Garnet Lacey is ready to walk down the aisle with the super sexy vampire Sebastian. Besides the fact that he has no pulse, things couldn’t be more perfect. Until plans for the wedding start falling apart, and Sebastian’s zombie-slash-vampire-slash witch ex-lover decides that both of them should be six feet under. It’s just a matter of time before Garnet—who’s already sharing her body with a short-tempered goddess—morphs into Bridezilla.
I should have really left the bookstore then because I found The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King and I have been hearing really great things about it. I might just have to read it next.
In the late seventeenth century, famed teenage pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping the pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with “the dust of one hundred dogs,” dooming her to one hundred lives as a dog before returning to a human body-with her memories intact.
Now she’s a contemporary American teenager and all she needs is a shovel and a ride to Jamaica.
Now I just have to get out of this funk so I can get started!!
