Want Want Want Wednesday (20)

Brother/Sister By Sean Olin

"Will and Asheley have a troubled past. Their father left them when they were little, and their mother has just been carted off to an alcohol treatment center. Now, they have the house to themselves, and an endless California summer stretching out before them. Through alternating perspectives, they tell the story of how and why their lives spun violently out of control - right up to the impossibly shocking conclusion you'll have to read for yourself to believe."
I read about this book a while ago on someone's blog (I wish I could remember whose) and was very interested in the book.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone By Laini Taylor 

"Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.
When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?"
EVERYONE is saying how awesome this book is and the more and more I hear about the book, the more I MUST have it, I am so jealous of everyone who has already been able to read it.

The Surgeon By Tess Gerristen

One of my favorite shows on TV right now is Rizzoli and Isles and what I didn't know is that before it was a TV show they were a series of books! This is one of the 1st books in the series and I am very interested in seeing if I will like them as much as I like the show and if there is any correlation between the two.


  1. Oh, I'm totally looking forward to Smoke and Bone. Sounds soooo good!

  2. Smoke and Bone looks so great!
