On My Wishlist (12)

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City, and runs every Saturday. It’s where we list all the books we desperately want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

On my Wishlist this week, I have The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.

I loved Julie’s Iron Fey series so very much, that it’s one of my favourites now. So of course I’m really excited to see what her new series will be about. It’s released on April 24th 2012.

Description:

In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their “pets.” In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.

Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero…and turned vampire.

Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She’s passing for human…for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.

So the Bout of books is done as of today!

I managed to read 3 books and complete my goal that I set for myself at the beginning of this. For having a full work week, this is a pretty good number of books read for me. The most time I usually get to read is on the bus in the morning and evening, and during my lunch break (30 mins.). In the evenings I don’t always read, but I managed to push myself to get this done!

I plan to try and read much more after this, and try out some more reviews as well, the next one being the current book I’m reading 🙂

I hope that everyone has had fun and reached their goals, whomever participated in this!

I figured out that the next series I’m going to read is the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa, I’ve heard some good things about it. I bought the first book in the series, Iron King since I got a coupon for Kobo in my email, and it’s been on my wishlist for a bit. Will let you know how it goes, but it sounds so awesome by the description so far!

I read a bunch of blogs here that review and suggest books, but if anyone has others they think I should read, feel free to let me know, I always love suggestions!

Happy reading peeps!
