Weekend Reading (March 23-25)

Wow. The weekend creeped up on me FAST. So fast, in fact, that I was browsing at Wal-Mart, gleefully enjoying the approximately 1.5 hours a week that I get to spend away from my son, when my stylist called up and reminded me that I had missed my hair appointment.  Guess my wrecktastic hair is sticking around for a little while longer.  Oh well, ON WITH THE READING! 

First up is Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter.  This is the second in her Goddess Test series and is due to be released on March 27th.  I wasn't a huge fan of The Goddess Test, but I am cautiously optimistic about this one. 

Kate Winters has won immortality. But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, she'll have to fight for it.Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future Henry's first wife, Persephone.

Next up is The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.  This is the first in a new series and is due to be released on April 24th.  But, you might recognize the author from her wildly acclaimed Iron Fey series which has been languishing in my TBR pile for some time. 

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.
Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die… or become one of the monsters.
Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.
Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.
But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.

 There you have it folks, these are the books that will take up the hours while my son sleeps, tearing me away from my husband and ensuring that Jersey Shore takes up permanent residence on my DVR.  Happy Reading!
