Wednesday Wishes

Bitten is back my friends. And I find myself being sucked in again despite myself. Anyone else catch it?

To Wednesday Wishes.

I actually dug into my TBR pile for these bad boys. Titles that I had completely forgotten about, and once I saw them the lust fired up!

The Death Catchers by Jennifer Anne Kogler

Genre: Paranormal Young Adult
Series: N/A

On her fourteenth Halloween, Lizzy Mortimer sees her first death-specter.

Confused at first, Lizzy soon learns from her grandmother Bizzy that as Death Catchers, they must prevent fate from taking its course when an unjust death is planned-a mission that has been passed down from their ancestor, Morgan le Fay. Only, Lizzy doesn't expect one of her first cases to land her in the middle of a feud older than time between Morgan le Fay and her sister Vivienne le Mort. Vivienne hopes to hasten the end of the world by preventing Lizzy from saving King Arthur's last descendant-humanity's greatest hope for survival. It's up to Lizzy, as Morgan's earthly advocate, to outwit fate before it's too late.

With its unique spin on Arthurian legend, this fresh, smartly written story will stand out in the paranormal genre.

This still sounds cool to me, and I love what they’ve done with the new cover.

Monster by Naoki Urasawa

Genre: Manga
Series: Monster, Volume 1

An ice-cold killer is on the loose, and brilliant Dr. Kenzo Tenma is the only one who can stop him! Conspiracies, serial murders, and a scathing indictment of hospital politics are all masterfully woven together in this compelling manga thriller. Tenma risks his promising medical career to save the life of a critically wounded young boy. Unbeknownst to him, this child is destined for a terrible fate. Who could have known that Tenma would create a monster!

I’ve been branching out in my manga reading, and I can’t believe I had completely forgot about it! Dark, gritty, horror!

A Lady Never Tells by Candace Camp

a-lady-never-tellsGet it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: Willowmere, book 1

Meet three noble bachelors and a quartet of American girls of questionable manners! New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp delights with an exciting new series featuring love, laughter, and intrigue.

When Mary Bascombe’s stepfather tries to sell her and her sisters to the highest bidder after their mother’s death, she resolves to take drastic action. Although their British mother was estranged from her family, Mary decides the four will flee to London and take their place in society as granddaughters of the Earl of Stewkesbury.

Dashing Sir Royce Winslow doubts the honesty of the young women’s claim—despite their charms, they seem to be hiding something. His attraction to feisty Mary, however, is no ruse, so when the sisters are shipped off to Willowmere, the earl’s country estate, to acquire some polish, Royce is quick to join them. When an unknown villain attempts a kidnapping, Royce and Mary are thrown together as they confront the danger . . . and Royce learns that while high society may sing the praises of proper behavior, it is a most improper American who is winning his heart.

Oh! This was one of the first titles on my Historical Romance list to try out the genre. I’ve learned a lot about the genre since then, and I think this could be a good read.
