CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS
by Cassandra Clare
March 31, 2011


City of Fallen Angels is the fourth book in the bestselling seriesThe Mortal Instruments. It follows the adventures of Jace, Clary, Simon and their friends after the events of City of Glass.




HANDLING THE UNDEAD 
by John Ajvide Lindqvist
Sept 28, 2010

Across Stockholm the power grid has gone crazy. Electrical appliances turn themselves on and cannot be switched off. Then the terrible news breaks: In the morgue and in cemeteries, the recently deceased are waking up, but they are not as they were before. What do they want? 


A horror novel that transcends its genre and illuminates with wry humor and compassion what the return of the dead might really mean to those who loved them, HANDLING THE UNDEAD rises to the level of family drama, piercing tragedy and social satire combined. A grandfather alight with hope that his grandson has been returned. A husband aghast at what his adored wife has become. A widow convinced that the End of Days has arrived - and desperately hoping that her late husband isn't back to stay.

Can't wait to see the cover for CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS (reveal Dec 2010), and love the creepy one for HANDLING THE UNDEAD

What are you waiting for?

Great picks this week. Though Handling the Undead sounds like a good read, the cover kinda freaks me out a bit. lol Anything with creepy eyes makes me cringe! lol

I SO need to read the TMI series. I've read the first LONG ago, and have the others... so yeah, I need to get on the ball and read! Everyone says so many great things about it. What am I waiting for? Right? lol :)

Lily Child said...

The only thing by Jim Butcher I've ever read were short stories. I've read Something Borrowed, It's My Birthday Too, and Heorot.
