Friday Finds- October 29, 2010

Here are my finds for the week:

Abandon- Meg Cabot
She knows what it's like to die. Now Death wants her back.

Seventeen-year-old Pierce knows what happens to us when we die.

That's how she met John Hayden, the mysterious stranger who's made returning to normal life—or at least life as Pierce knew it before the accident—next to impossible.

Though she thought she escaped him—starting a new school in a whole new place—it turns out she was wrong. He finds her.

What does John want from her? Pierce thinks she knows... just like she knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven. But she can't stay away from him, either, especially since he's always there when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she might find herself back in the place she fears the most.

And when Pierce discovers the shocking truth, that’s exactly where John sweeps her:

The Underworld. (From Meg Cabot's website)

Forever- Maggie Stiefvater
The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater.

In Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in. (From Goodreads)


  1. I've meaning to try these two authors for a while now, their books sound great!

  2. These both look really good! I've read Shiver and Linger. Can't wait to get a hold of Forever. Thanks for sharing :}. You might also enjoy a new fantasy thriller out called, "Blood Soup," by Kelly A. Harmon. This one is so good I can't put it down - the characters are complex, vivid, and compelling and the story totally absorbing.
