Friday Finds and New Reads

Friday Finds and New Reads

This is where I talk about new books that really stand out to me or sound unique, and what new books I have to read or will be getting soon.

 It's been a little while since I've done this, so let's just get right to it, shall we. First up we have Chosen Ones by Tiffany Truitt:

Summary: Life is bleak but uncomplicated for Tess, living in a not-too-distant future where the government, faced with humanity’s extinction, created the Chosen Ones, artificial beings who are extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.

When Tess begins work at Templeton, a Chosen Ones training facility, she meets James, and the attraction is immediate in its intensity, overwhelming in its danger. But there is more to Templeton than Tess ever knew. Can she stand against her oppressors, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?

This one sounds very interesting. An interesting dystopian concept with a bit of science fiction and intrigue. That seems to be what I'm into now.
Next up we have Mistwalker by Saundra Mitchell:

Summary: When Willa’s brother dies on the family fishing boat, her father forbids her from stepping foot on the deck. But her family needs her, and she’ll do anything to help out– even going to see the Grey Man, the legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog–and with it, the fate of any boat within 100 miles. But what Willa finds isn’t a spirit at all, but a boy trapped inside until he takes 1,000 souls.

After I read The Vespertine, I absolutely fell in love with Saundra Mitchell's writing and I can't wait to see her unique take on this particular story. I know that it will be fabulous.
And now I have a bunch of New Reads to share with you:



  1. My list of "must reads" is growing super long with all the great reviews you post. I need to get reading :)

  2. Definitely looking forward to Tempest and Chosen Ones, myself! Plus there's the sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood to look forward to!

    Here's wishing your 2012 is full of health, happiness, and excellent reads!
