Snagged @ The Library: Holly Black, Thea Harrison, Larissa Ione

This week I snagged these books from Frisco Public Library, Plano Public Library, and The Colony Public Library. If you unsure of what kind of awesome things are offered by the library system please check out my post: Blogger Confession Library + Online Content = Greatness

Frisco Public Library: Checked out Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione finally getting to the Demonica Series after loving the horseman!

FL Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione

Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .

Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn’t resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.

A Seminus Demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he’d seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts-or succumb to a madman’s evil plans


Plano Public Library: On hold is Falling Light by Thea Harrison. I read the first one as part of book club. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first book but I am totally curious about where it is going. The library is great for books like that!

PL Falling Light by Thea Harrison

Troubled by dreams of strange creatures and unfamiliar voices echoing in her head, Mary has always felt disconnected from this world-until she met the enigmatic stranger Michael. He knew about Mary’s past. He was in it. Searching for her. His soul mate. And it’s taken centuries to find her, to re-engage her in an ancient, celestial cause: find the Deceiver before he destroys the world.

Haunted by scores of deaths – their own – Mary and Michael have drawn on the wisdom of the ages, and the power it has given them, to fight the most malevolent force known to man. Joining a select band of warriors, Mary and Michael are nearer to understanding the Deceiver and all he stands for. It’s a terrifying reality that also brings them closer to realizing their own destiny and purpose. And realizing that love – like evil – is eternal.


The Colony Public Library: On Hold for (Audio) The Coldest Girl in ColdTown by Holly Black! This is probably why I love the library the most. I can check out YA books. Since I am not an overall fan of the genre, it gives me a chance to try the books people are talking about without committing to spending my book budget on them. Plus I don’t feel bad if they don’t work for me, I just move on!

TCL The Coldest Girl in Cold Town by Holly Black

Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black

  1. I have heard wonderful things about The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. BUT the premise is pretty darn creepy/gruesome, so I’m interested in your thoughts. Looking forward to it πŸ˜‰

    • I loved the horseman so much and these characters were in there. Now I am going to fall in love with the demons (well I already love them but need their love stories)

    • I loved the horseman so I imagine I will love these. Plus since I already “know” the characters it will be fun to see them pre-hooked up LOL

  2. I’ve had Sin Undone on my iPhone for what seems like forever now. I really should get back to the Demonica series… it was the change in narrator that threw me off. In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy Angel Crawford. πŸ™‚

    • Love me some Angel! She is probably my favorite leading lady just because she totally is making the best of her 2nd chance even if it includes BRAIIIIIIIIIIIINS!

  3. I love the Demonica series. I read them a couple of years ago. I still need to read the horsemen series. I checked out book 1 on audio last year from the library and didn’t care for the narration so I stopped. I have all the books but one. I just need to get in the mood to read them.

    • The reason I picked up the Demonica series is because I have been in a physical book reading slump. Seriously I have picked a book up, put it down, picked it up ect.

  4. I’ve actually never read anything by Ione or Harrison BUT! I’ve got The Coldest Girl in Coldtown and I’m anxious to read it pretty soon. I haven’t yet because I don’t love to read books at the same time everyone else is/has – that’s why I tend to read books staggered from everyone else! I hope you enjoy it PLUS I see that you’re audiobooking it! I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts to see if I want to add the audio to my print (I like to listen to the audiobook while following along in print. It’s my favorite way to read.)

    ps) Your blog was recommended to me when I did a blog post looking for more recommendations to mix up my blog feed a little bit. Glad to be here!

    • Awesome! Actually I was just over at yours and we are going to be great blog neighbors. We appear to read all over the place –which I love. I am a mood reader so I am never very consistent in genre!

      I am looking forward to that one coming off hold but alas I am number 5 so it could be weeks. LOL

      I rarely read new releases right out of the gate–only on those rare series that I must have them RIGHT NOW! πŸ™‚

    • I have actually been stuck in YA land (which I am firmly out of since I just disliked a book that everyone loved). I am like 8th in the line for the Harrison book so it will be awhile LOL
