Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Venus Cove. But everything changes when three angels are sent from heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. They work hard to conceal their true identity and, most of all, their wings. But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls in love with the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There′s a new kid in town and he′s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he′s after Beth.

So, I tried not to be interested in this since it wasn't that fascinating to me. But the cover pulls me back in EVERY time. So, yeah. Need this.

[September 16, 2010]
A fable of a terrifying near future by critically acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott.

Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.

Told in spare, powerful prose, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they've reached the final page.


I love dystopians and this just sounds phenomenal. I've never read an Elizabeth Scott book, but I have talked to her before and she's SO amazingly sweet! So, I think this will be my intro to her books.

How do you come back from the point of no return?

Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend Isaac alive, and the fir
st to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time where Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn’t wake up.

Convinced that his own actions led to his friend’s death, Seth is torn between turning his life around . . . or losing himself completely.


Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he's ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth will soon realize he isn’t the only one who needs saving . . .


Doesn't this just sound amazing? Pair that with an awesome cover and an amazingly nice author, of COURSE I want to read it!

So, what are YOU all waiting on this week?

  3. I've only read two books by Elizabeth Scott (Bloom and Something, Maybe) but I thought they were both great. So I'm really looking forward to Grace as well!
