Anyone with a fondness for books knows how quickly a To Be Read pile can get out of control. It seems the more I read, the more books end up on that pile. These are the books that hit my radar and got added to that list over the past week.
I have no idea what happened this week. Perhaps it was the loss of brain cells from listening to Twilight or my sudden GetGlue addiction or diving into the blackhole that is the DC Comics archive, but I wouldn’t have discovered any new-to-me-books if it wasn’t for a reader suggestion. I think I was too busy doing… stuff or something. Anyway, this week I only have one book to add to the giant TBR pile, though perhaps that’s a good thing. Another one or fifty weeks like this and I might actually make some meaningful progress on this pile…
Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh (Guild Hunter #1)
Nalini Singh introduces readers to a world of beauty and bloodlust, where angels hold sway over vampires.
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux is hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael. But this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break.
On this week’s Waiting on Wednesday post about Daughter of Smoke & Bone, a lovely commenter by the name of Jessica suggested I might like Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series. I think I had heard about this series before, but never in a way that caught my attention, but she said angels with “badass gritty tendencies” and I had to check it out. While the cover is a little too grocery store romance for me, the plot does sound intriguing and it gets great reviews on Goodreads. Not to mention Felicia Day likes it and she’s pretty awesome too.
