Dark Beauty by Taryn Brown

It Happened One Bite  by Lydia Dare

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Blood Song by Anthony Ryan

Dark Innocence by Rahima Warren

Smoke and Magic by Patti Larsen

Deadly Affair by Lucinda Brant

Tegan’s Blood by L.H. Cosway

I got quite a lot of books this week! It makes me rub my hands in glee!

Let’s start with Dark Beauty. It’s the prequel to the Seeker series. I’ve already read the book one, Dark Seeker. It’s about Janie Grey’s mother Isabelle and how she meets Abram, another Seeker. I suspect it’s also about how she meets Janie’s father as well.

It Happened One Bite should be a fun romance. I’ve been in the mood for romance lately and this one caught my eye. It’s a  Highland romance.  I love Highland books and it’s got vampires. I love vampires. I just hope it’s not too overblown.

If I Stay and Where She Went, the second book, has gotten really good reviews. I heard about the books from Blook Girl. I’ve already started reading If I Stay and I’m really enjoying it.

Blood Song was one of those Amazon recommendations. It was a good price and it got good reviews so I snagged it. It looks like a good, solid fantasy book. I’m looking forward to reading it. Dark Innocence is a book submission. It’s another solid fantasy novel.

Smoke and Magic was a free Kindle book. It takes place in Victorian London and it’s described as a type of steampunk historical YA novel. Right up my alley!

Deadly Affair is a Georgian Historical Mystery novel that caught my eye. It’s free Kindle book so I figured I didn’t have much to lose. I’ll probably just read it for fun. It’s book two in the series, but the reviews say it can be read as a stand-alone.

Tegan’s Blood is an urban fantasy that looks like it has a hefty amount of romance thrown in. There should be a lot of vampires, werewolves, witches, and warlocks in it. It looks like fun!

That’s my book haul for the week!
