New to Dot Scribbles' Shelves



I have been quite restrained this week and only bought three books!

Glass Houses- Morganville Vampires Series- No.1 by Rachel Caine (Allison & Busby)- College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation, where the popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks in the school's social scene: somewhere less than zero. When Claire heads off-campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don't show many signs of life, but they come out fighting when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood...

The Dead Girls' Dance- Morganville Vampire Series- No.2 by Rachel Caine (Allison & Busby)- Claire has her share of challenges. Like being a genius in a school that favours beauty over brains' homicidal girls in her dorm, and finding out that her college town is overun with the living dead. On the up side she has a new boyfriend with a vampire-hunting dad. But when a local fraternity throws the Dead Girls' Dance, hell is really going to break loose.

Nearly Departed by Rook Hastings (Harper Collins)- Woodsville is not like other towns. Night falls a little earlier there, the shadows are darker and denser, and everyone knows it's a place where strange things happen. Even if they won't admit it. Bethan would prefer to be anywhere but here. Jay has his theories, but isn't ready to share. Hashim sees more than he'll say, while Kelly's demons are all too flesh and blood. But Emily's freak-out brings them out of denial and face to face with the supernatural. Anywhere else, Friday night would be date night. But not in Weirdsville...


The lovely people at Bloomsbury sent me a book to review as well:

4.3.2.1 by Jim Eldridge (Bloomsbury)- Take four best friends. Give them three days in two cities and totally mess with their lives. Add to the mix a diamond heist, a transatlantic booty call, one seriously professional panic room and a lot of partying. The result is BAFTA award-winner Noel Clarke's new film, 4.3.2.1.



I was also sent this by Headline, I was actually sent 2 copies so I shall be doing a little give away with my review:

Kissing Mr Wrong by Sarah Duncan (Headline Review)- Lu Edwards believes in travelling light, with not even a goldfish to tie her down. She'd like a Mr Right, and on meeting gorgeous, successful Marcus at a party, she can see him fitting into her streamlined life; if only he wasn't moving to America.
Lu's grandmother is also looking for a man: a soldier from her mysterious past. Lu turns for help to Nick, a militery history expert with more baggage than Heathrow, right down to the kids, ex-wife and hamster. Playing the wicked stepmother was never Lu's plan, so why is she getting so hung up on Mr Couldn't-Be-More-Wrong? As Nick helps Lu trace her family history, she finds herself falling for his chaotic charms. What will she do when Marcus comes home?

If you have read any of these then do please let me know what you thought was good/bad!
