Hee. Hee hee hee. That's me giggling in glee. I'm reading this currently and it is just as awesome as I thought it would be - and more different to the Mortal Instruments series than I expected. Curious to see how it ends...
This comes via UK Book Tours, who you really should check out if you are a UK blogger. I really enjoyed reading Wake last week (review soon) and am interested to find out where the story line will head in this sequel.
As You Wish
Harper Teen 2009
I received this on surprise loan from the lovely Emma at Asamum Booktopia. I absolutely loved Sisters Red (review here) by the same author and am keen to see what this is like.
Bah. I actually pre-ordered this but it didn't arrive until well after the release date. Sadly, I have had the end of the story spoiled for me by a review that did not carry a spoiler warning. Therefore it has been relegated to my shelf until I feel like having a look.
Egmont Books 2010
I've seen this reviewed a couple of times recently and like the premise. It looks pretty sinister and I love the extremely creepy cover. I've not heard of the author before and it's always nice to go into a book knowing nothing about the style of writing.

I read very little teen fiction when I was an actual teen, but I did read (repeatedly) and love Among Friends. I tracked down a copy (it's not in print) and was so excited when it arrived I actually stopped reading Clockwork Angel in order to read it instead. I know. I am delighted to report that it was just as good as I remember it.
So, a slightly quieter week is approaching reading wise which is good as the 12th of September sees the start of Week Of The Living Dead here at Mountains of Instead. Yes, I will be celebrating all things zombie with reviews, discussion posts, haikus and a great international give away. There will be contributions from many familiar and not so familiar names and I hope that you will all stop by to check out some of the great guest posts that will be appearing that week! Until then, happy reading!
