What's Next? is a weekly meme hosted by IceyBooks.
My picks this week are all 2014 releases that I really want to read.
So, my choices are:
Sparrow Hill Road (Ghost Stories #1) by Seanan McGuire
Rose Marshall died in 1952 in Buckley Township, Michigan, run off the road by a man named Bobby Cross—a man who had sold his soul to live forever, and intended to use her death to pay the price of his immortality. Trouble was, he didn’t ask Rose what she thought of the idea.
It’s been more than sixty years since that night, and she’s still sixteen, and she’s still running.
They have names for her all over the country: the Girl in the Diner. The Phantom Prom Date. The Girl in the Green Silk Gown. Mostly she just goes by “Rose,” a hitchhiking ghost girl with her thumb out and her eyes fixed on the horizon, trying to outrace a man who never sleeps, never stops, and never gives up on the idea of claiming what’s his. She’s the angel of the overpass, she’s the darling of the truck stops, and she’s going to figure out a way to win her freedom. After all, it’s not like it can kill her.
You can’t kill what’s already dead.
Sparrow Hill Road is a spin-off of one of my most fav series InCryptid & set in the same world. I actually plan to finally read the 3rd InCryptid book any day now, but I'd like to read this one soon, too. I love the world, and there's something addicting about it, so I want more!
The Queen of Zombie Hearts (White Rabbit Chronicles #3) by Gena Showalter
I have a plan.
We'll either destroy them for good, or they'll destroy us.
Either way, only one of us is walking away.
In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice "Ali" Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She's ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers…until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It's then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters…and the worst has only begun.
As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies…and she isn't the girl she thought she was. She's connected to the woman responsible for killing — and turning — Cole's mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima — even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.
Ok, so, I adore Gena Showalter's books, and I adore this series, and it's time to read this finale, which I know will be amazing. It's time to say goodbye, despite the fact that I don't want to...
The Sorcerer Heir (The Heir Chronicles #5) by Cinda Williams Chima
The delicate peace between Wizards and the underguilds (Warriors, Seers, Enchanters, and Sorcerers) still holds by the thinnest of threads, but powerful forces inside and outside the guilds threaten to sever it completely.
Emma and Jonah are at the center of it all. Brought together by their shared history, mutual attraction, and a belief in the magic of music, they now stand to be torn apart by new wounds and old betrayals. As they struggle to rebuild their trust in each other, Emma and Jonah must also find away to clear their names as the prime suspects in a series of vicious murders. It seems more and more likely that the answers they need lie buried in the tragedies of the past. The question is whether they can survive long enough to unearth them.
Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.
Cinda Williams Chima is one of my fav authors, and The Sorcerer Heir is the final book in the series, and I hope it will be perfect & amazing, so it's another 2014 release that I want to read before this year ends.
So, you can see my indecision about which one to read next, and I'd appreciate your help.
