My book this week is… Into the Cold Fire by Lynne Ewing

Into the Cold Fire (Daughters of the Moon, #2)

“In antiquity, Hekate was loved and revered as the goddess of the dark moon. People looked to her as a guardian against unseen dangers and spiritual foes.”

Having read the first Daughters of the Moon book, I knew the prologue would be a mythology story that would prelude to the book a bit. The first few lines led me to believe that this one is about guardians or the sisters’ job as guardians. I shall soon see!❤

Debut Authors

So I’ve spent the last hour or so going through all the Goodreads first read giveaways and I’ve found quite a few books by new authors that sound fantastic! Then I realized, I hear so little of new authors until they have become famous or by chance. I think I’ll make it a point to look up debut authors about once a month or so. To start that, here’s the ones I’ve found on goodreads today with a picture of their debut novel’s cover.

 

Mary Lindsey

Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

Rhiannon Hart

Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart

Kiki Hamilton

The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

Melissa Lemon

Cinder and Ella

I really want to read these four books and I wish these up-and-coming authors the best of luck!

Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My picks are…

Title: Cinder and Ella
Author: Melissa Lemon
Release Date:
8 Nov. 2011

Cinder and Ella Goodreads Summary: After their father’s disappearance, Cinder leaves home for a servant job at the castle. But it isn’t long before her sister Ella is brought to the castle herself—the most dangerous place in all the kingdom for both her and Cinder. Cinder and Ella is a Cinderella story like no other and one you’ll never forget.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Title: Eve
Author: Anna Carey
Release Date: 4 Oct. 2011

Eve (The Eve Trilogy, #1)Goodreads Summary:

Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth’s population, the world is a perilous place. Eighteen-year-old Eve has never been beyond the heavily guarded perimeter of her school, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been promised a future as the teachers and artists of the New America. But the night before graduation, Eve learns the shocking truth about her school’s real purpose—and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Arden, her former rival from school, and Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust . . . and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.

In this epic new series, Anna Carey imagines a future that is both beautiful and terrifying. Readers will revel in Eve’s timeless story of forbidden love and extraordinary adventure.

And for the last, one much loser to release!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Title: Virals
Author: Kathy Reichs
Release Date: 23 Aug. 2011

ViralsGoodreads Summary: Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (of the Bones novels and hit TV show), is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage “sci-philes” who live on a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever.

As the friends discover their heightened senses and animal-quick reflexes, they must combine their scientific curiosity with their newfound physical gifts to solve a cold-case murder that has suddenly become very hot-if they can stay alive long enough to catch the killer’s scent. Fortunately, they are now more than friends: They are a pack. They are Virals.

Note: I admit, I only chose this one because the reference to one of my favorite TV shows, Bones. It’s not my normal style, but hopefully the story is inspired by Bones and it’ll be interesting.

IMM is a weekly meme held by The Story Siren. While some may buy/borrow/recieve new books each week, I often don’t. I get several books from the linrary and read them for two weeks, so mine will be more “I just finished… and I’m about ___ far in… and next is…” We’ll see how it goes!

 

Half-Human – Bruce Coville (goodreads)
Into the Cold Fire – Lynne Ewing (goodreads)
Awakened – P.C. & Kristen Cast (goodreads)
Private – Kate Brian (goodreads)

A Gentle Good Day.

Welcome to Winged Escapes! Thank you for visiting my newest project. I’ve always had an adoration of books and have always done book reviews in various ways. Now I’ve decided to dedicate an entire blog to the loves of my life!
But who am I?
I’m an 18 year old, college freshman. I’m studying French and Elementary Education as my majors. I’m a Unicorn-girl. I’ve never once claimed to be normal. I believe in faeries, mermaids, and all those fun “myths”. I have a rabbit named Kupo and a man named Hunter in my life. I love movies, music, writing, and life. I believe magic is everywhere and you need only to look for it. I love glitter and the colour pink, and I am consistently inconsistent.

I’ve posted all my book reviews to date, and they have been back dated to when I actually wrote them. I hope you enjoy.❤
