Friday Finds

This post showcases the covers of the books, I recently found on other book blogs, good reads, bookstores, and that I am highly interested in reading. The idea is to share, every Friday, books that you’ve recently discovered (never heard of before) that sound really good!

Book 3: Fearscape by Simon Holt
(Little Brown / Oct. 5, 2010)

The Vours: evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the Winter Solstice. It's been a year since Reggie first discovered the Vours, and the Winter Solstice is approaching once again. It will be another night of unspeakable horror for those unlucky enough to be taken by the Vours, because this time, she won't be able to stop them. The Vours have imprisoned Reggie in a psychiatric hospital, where she is subjected to a daily routine of unfathomably sadistic experiments. Her life is a living Hell, but she won't give up. They attacked her brother. They killed her friend. And Reggie will never stop fighting back.

I've read the 1st book in this series. I was excited to find this, as I was wondering about this series one day. I really like the cover, I like that it's blue. I'll have to wait out for this one. It looks awesome.

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
(Simon Pulse / Nov. 16, 2009)

Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

This seems very up my alley. I haven't read Hush, Hush yet but I'm getting to it. Honestly, I think this cover looks amazing, it's speaks for it self.

The FEARSCAPE cover is so pretty! I'm not sure how I feel about the CRESCENDO one yet... I def. liked HUSH HUSH's better!

I loved Hush, Hush and can't wait for Crescendo!

Fearscape should be interesting too, I read the first one but haven't had the chance to read the second yet.

FEARSCAPE is intriguing. Had not heard of this series.
HUSH, HUSH is on my TBR list. I really need to get to it and then this one.
