Friday Finds (2)

This week I actually found new books! I'm not sure if this is a good thing and there's just a lot of books coming out, or that I'm getting sloppy and behind on releases...let's go with the first one. Anyways, here they are:

Dark Visions: The Strange Power, The Possessed, The Passion - L.J Smith

GIFTED AND CURSED Kaitlyn Fairchild has always felt like an outsider. Her haunting eyes and prophetic drawings have earned her a reputation as a witch. But Kait’s not a witch: she’s psychic. Tired of being shunned, Kait accepts an invitation to attend the Zetes Institute, where she can study with other psychic teens and have a fresh start.

As Kaitlyn learns to hone her abilities with four other gifted students, she starts to discover the intensity of her power - and the joy of having true friends. But those friendships quickly become complicated when Kait finds herself torn between two irresistible guys. Rob is a healer - kind and gentle, he’s surrounded by good energy, while Gabriel is aggressive and mysterious - a telepath concealing his true nature.

Together, Rob and Gabriel’s opposing forces start to threaten the group’s stability, and when a experiment traps the five teens in a psychic link - a link that threatens their sanity and their lives - Kaitlyn must decide who to trust and who to love . . .

I found this at Books, Books, and More Books. This one looks awesome! I love L.J. Smith and the premise looks dark and pretty original. And the cover is made of awesome. Seriously. Someone made it out of awesome instead of paper. You don't believe me? You shouldn't... I'm kidding.

Under My Skin by Judith Graves

All her parents wanted was for Eryn to live a normal life...
Redgrave had its share of monsters before Eryn moved to town. Mauled pets, missing children.
The Delacroix family is taking the blame, but Eryn knows the truth. Something stalks the night. Wade, the police chief's son and Redgrave High's resident hottie, warns her the Delacroix are dangerous. But then so is Eryn - in fact, she's lethal.
But she can't help falling for one of the Delacroix boys, dark, brooding - human Alec. And then it all goes bad.
A normal life? Now that's the real fairytale.

This one sounds really good too! I'm not sure when it comes out. And is Judith Graves a pen name? I'd think so, I like it. I found Under my Skin at The Hiding Spot.

Soulless by Gail Carriger

Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire -- and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart? SOULLESS is a comedy of manners set in Victorian London: full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

This is the first one in the series, right? I hope so, it looks REALLY good. Anyone know when it comes out? Sorry, I don't remember where I found this one and it's gonna bug me all day....

  11. You can't put Unwind on hold! It was brilliant! Also, Scott Westerfield = sheer class. One of my favourites.

  12. All of these look great.

    I just gave you an award at my blog :)

  13. Rocs: I was enjoying Unwind and my friends have done nothing but rave about it, but right now I'm very glad that I put it on hold. It's Catching Fire! Besides, I should be finished with it in a very short time. I've only read Scott Westerfield's Udlies series (first 3) and thought it was OK, but really liked the writing. Hopefully I'll like these 2! And thanks for visiting! :)
