The Collini Case by Ferdinand Von Schirach
This book was first published in German in 2011, and after being a best seller there, it's now being translated. In case you couldn't guess from the title, it's some type of courtroom drama.
Day One by Nate Kenyon
The back of this books describes it as Cloverfield meets The Terminator. It looks like it could be YA, but I'm not sure that's the case.
From Paperback Swap
Asylum by K.A. Tucker.
I really liked the first in this series, Anathema, when I read it last year. And since K.A. Tucker seems to have gotten huge lately, I figured it was time to track down the next in the series.
The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. by Nichole Bernier
This is our book club book for the month. From what I've heard from those who've already started it, it's supposed to be awfully sad.
Madame Serpent by Jean Plaidy
When I bought our book club book, I had an offer where if I spent $25 I received $5 cash back. Obviously I HAD to spend more money so that $5 wouldn't go to waste, right? At least I decided on a book I've been lusting over for a while, the first in Jean Plaidy's Catherine De'Medici series.
Revenge of the Rose by Nicole Galland
Even with two books in my hand, I wasn't quite sure I would make it to $25. So what to do but pick up a third book. Knowing that I've enjoyed the last two of her books I figured this one looked like a good bet.
