From Bookmooch I received Piratica: Being a Daring Tale of a Singular Girl's Adventure Upon the High Seas by Tanith Lee. I adore Lee's young adult novels. They're pure fun.
For review I got With a Sword in My Hand byJean-Claude van Rijckeghem (say that ten times fast) and Pat van Beirs (Allen & Unwin, April 2010). It sounds really lovely, and the cover is gorgeous:
Marguerite's father is desperate for a son. Instead he's stuck with a feisty, stubborn, red-headed daughter who refuses to behave like a lady. This exciting medieval romance-adventure story is based on historical fact about a 14-year-old heiress to Flanders called Marguerite Van Male.I also got books three and four in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz, Revelations and The Van Allen Legacy (Atom April 2010). I must read the first two!
I haven't posted a Very Cool Track for you to listen to in some time. Props go to my new man for introducing me to this song. We're at that cute stage where we're lying around playing each other records and comparing music tastes. Well, he plays vinyl, I play my laptop! This is"Me and the Devil" by Gil Scott-Heron, released just last month. This is one awesome song, and the clip is very Mexican Day of the Dead/vampiric. Paranormal tie-in, score!
