The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa
I'm planing on starting The Immortal Rules soon so I couldn't resist requesting this one on Netgalley. I've heard great things about book 1 so I can't wait to get started - Dystiopian Vampire stories sound just too amazing!
A BIG thanks to Harlequin for the copy!
I also bought a few books this week, working on books I've been meaning to get my hands on for a little while - or longer:
Alright, so ever since I read the Percy Jackson books I've been wanting to check out the rest of Riordan's work. Seeing how I'm pretty much obsessed with ancient Egypt, his Kane Chronicles appealed to me...as much as I love anything Egyptian, I admit I'm not overly familiar with Egyptian Myths but I think Riordian's light & fun take on mythology could be good.
The Amber Spyglass is book 3 in the His Dark Materials Series (Golden Compass books) and as much as I enjoyed book 1, book 2 just didn't go in the direction I was hoping. It left me somewhat conflicted about even starting book 3 but I've gotten this far so I can't really stop now!
I am a BIG fan of The Count of Monte Cristo film (HUGE fan in fact) but I have to sort of shamefully admit that I've never read the book. And being me, I have to experience both. I sort of held out for a long time because I'd heard that the film does an even better job at telling the story than the book does (which is NEVER the case). Anyways, the boyfriend saw it while running around in Wal-Mart & he picked it up for me! It is a beast of a book so I really hope it'll compare to the film.
The Mists of Avalon was recommended by one of my dearest friends. She knows how much I love high fantasy & this one is pretty much a classic - it's an Arthurian historical fantasy told through the eyes of the women of his court. She was shocked that I'd never read it...but my embarrassment was short lived after she admitted to still not having read the Harry Potter books o.O We made a deal that I would read this if she read the Potter books...but again this book is another monster at almost 900 pages so I'm a little scared!
That's it for me, what did YOU get this week?
