Book Haul (22 June 2012)

Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby - I went and got this book from the Library pretty much as soon as I heard about it. I'm sure I will love it as I am a Gooner.

Eldest (Inheritance #2) by Christopher Paolini - I now have the whole Inheritance Cycle series. The author is in my city this weekend so I am hoping to get these signed.

Post Captain (Aubrey/Maturin #2) by Patrick O'Brian - I keep finding these books really cheap. I really like the spines on these books as when I get them all they will look really good on my bookshelf.

I would like to thank Pan MacMillan Australia for these two books they sent me for review:

Dreamless (Starcrossed #2) by Josephine Angelini - I still need to read Starcrossed before I can read this.

Winter's Light (Winter Saga #2) by M.J. Hearle - I still need to read Winter's Shadow before I can read this.

E-Books I got this week are:

FlorenceFlorence by Ciye Cho

Seventeen-year-old Florence Waverley is out of her depth. Literally. Kidnapped and taken below the waves to the mer world of Niemela, she is the ultimate gift for merman Prince Kiren: a human familiar tied to his side. But nothing is what it seems amid the beauty and danger of a dark ocean.

Every Niemelan has a role to play, from the mermaids who weave towers out of kelp to the warriors who fight sea monsters. But in trying to survive, Florence will end up in the middle of a war between the mer and the Darkness. A conflict that will push her between two brothers: Kiren, the charmer inexplicably drawn to both her and the monsters; and Rolan, the loner who has been pushing her away since the day they met. But in order to take a stand--and find out where she belongs--Florence will have to risk it all: her life, her heart... and her very soul.

Everyone has a soul mate. But what do you do when your soul mate would rather give his soul to the demons than be with you?

Seventeen-year-old Erin has a problem. Seth has been hers forever, but now an ancient curse is tearing him away. And the demons who invoked it will stop at nothing – even murder – to claim him as their own.

How can she win against a curse so binding that it has damned countless others to this same fate – an eternity alone?

The answer lies in the past. To find it, Erin and Seth must risk all, travelling back in time to a dangerous world where love is forbidden, and life – and death – hang on a pledge.

Follow Erin and Seth as they travel to ancient Shenaya and confront the curse that has plagued their families for millennia. Caught in a war between the Angelic Guardians and the Gefallen, the disembodied dead, they must fight to keep their souls in tact and their love untainted.
