The Week's Entrée #6

Happy Monday everybody! I hope you all are starting the week with the right foot AND with the right book. ;)

I missed doing this post last week, but fear not, this one comes loaded to make up for it (kidding, it's not). However, I do have a few things to tell you about.

First, I read and reviewed 2 amazing books on the blog last week:


Fire Country by David Estes (dystopian) & Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen (fantasy) are absolutely fantastic and now all-time favorites of mine. They were both tear-jerkers for me and I can't wait to continue each series. I'm happy that I don't have to wait for the sequel to Fire Country since it's already a complete series, but boy, am I anguishing over Stolen Songbird! This book's sequel doesn't come out until next year, and this is tearing me apart. I think I need LOTS of chocolate.

In other news...


My review for Tethered Souls by Mike Essex is now live at Cuzinlogic! It's the second book in the Tethered Twins series, and although it didn't meet my expectations, I still feel like reading the final installment and see how everything ends. Like always, I would love for you to check it out and tell me what you think of this review.










Books I Bought, Won or Received:

I downloaded another book from Netgalley last week, and it's the only new addition to my to-be-read pile:


Under Nameless Stars by Christian Schoon
Expected publication: April 1st, 2014
Zenn Scarlett’s novice year of exoveterinarian training on Mars isn’t quite going to plan…

After barely surviving a plot to destroy her school and its menagerie of alien patients, could things at the Ciscan cloister get any worse? Yes. Yes they could: Zenn’s absent father Warra Scarlett has suddenly ceased all communication with her. Desperate to learn what’s become of him, Zenn stows away aboard the Helen of Troy, a starliner powered by one of the immense, dimension-jumping beasts known as Indra.

With her is Liam Tucker, a towner boy who is either very fond of her, very dangerous to her, or both. On the verge of learning the truth about her dad, Zenn’s quest suddenly catapults her and Liam thousands of light years beyond known space, and into the dark heart of a monstrous conspiracy. Braving a gauntlet of lethal environments and unearthly life forms, her courage and exovet skills will now be tested as never before.

With the fate of entire worlds hanging in the balance, Zenn is racing headlong into trouble… again.
I don't usually read sci-fi books, but this one sounds good. Plus, that cover is gorgeous and very eye-catching. I hope to read it soon! 

Wait a minute... *face palm* this book is actually the second book in a series! Oh well, will have to get the first one then. ;)


To Read This Week:

I don't actually feel like starting with a new book after reading Stolen Songbird (serious hangover). However, if I come to change my mind, I'll probably read...
  
Until We Meet Again  by S.E. Campbell  
Her mother, an ex-model, will do anything for love—and all the neighbors know it. Her fa-ther, a rich business executive, is cold and aloof. Now the Schmidt family has moved to Cal-ifornia, and eighteen-year-old Eden must face a tough new school and a creepy, old house that certainly feels haunted.

When her mother is killed in a freak auto accident, Eden finds a wooden cross among her mother's possessions. Triggering what will become a final confrontation with her father, Eden accidentally falls down the stairs and breaks her neck.

I actually have to purchase this book because I got a review copy from Cuzinlogic of the second book in The Blood Stone series, and I've been putting it off for a while now. Sorry Catherine, I'll hurry up with both books!

If I have time, I'll try to squeeze in another book, although I'm sure which one right now.

****

Aaaaand that's it for this edition of The Week's Entrée. What's on your plate for this week? Any good books to recommend? :)
