Snagged @ The Library: Avery Aames, Rachel Hawkins

Snagged @ The Library:

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: None this week though I did get my mom set up with a library card!


Plano Public Library: Days of Wine and Roguefort by Avery Aames

Plano Public Library

Murder, like Roquefort, stinks…

Cheese Shop owner Charlotte Bessette’s life seems quieter than ever with her fiancé out of town and her cousin Matthew and his children out of the house. But before she can put up her feet and enjoy a glass of chardonnay, Matthew asks her to play host to Noelle Adams, a bright sommelier visiting to help grow business for the local winery.

An affable wine aficionado, Noelle is paired well with the cheese expert Charlotte—but something seems to be troubling the secretive houseguest, and Charlotte’s life is upended when she finds the sparkling woman dead. Between Noelle’s hotheaded ex,  the cagey owners of the winery, its jaded manager, and a wily reporter, Charlotte has her pick of suspects, but she needs to act fast—this is a mystery that only gets more dangerous with age


The Colony Public Library:  Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It’s gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie’s estranged father–an elusive European warlock–only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it’s her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

  1. I had a few books that I didn’t request sent to me but otherwise I did a good job not acquiring any new books – and reading quite a few of my older ones. Yay me!

  2. Great choices Felicia! Avery Aames is on my wishlist, I am curious what you will think of her writing style. She is also Cleo Coyle. And I have actually read Hex Hall and was not all that much impressed with it.

  3. I just won a giveaway for a signed copy of the Days of Wine and Roquefort. It arrived yesterday and was excited to find recipes in it too. I haven’t read anything by Avery Aames yet but looks like a delicious story!

    I hope you will stop by my Small Victories Sunday linky and link up to 3 of your posts!
