Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything— including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?Picked this up on a road trip I went on earlier this week. I can't wait to get it signed at the Breathless Reads event!
He holds the secret that can end the world.I bought this from the Random Buzzers store a while ago, and it finally came in this week. It sounds interesting, I just wonder when I'll have time to read it.
The truth: Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life.
The records show that he died in 1418.
But his tomb is empty.
The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives. But only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. The secret of eternal life is hidden within the book he protects—the Book of Abraham the Mage. It's the most powerful book that has ever existed. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. That's exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it. Humankind won't know what's happening until it's too late. And if the prophecy is right, Sophie and Josh Newman are the only ones with the power to save the world as we know it.
Sometimes legends are true.
And Sophie and Josh Newman are about to find themselves in the middle of the greatest legend of all time.

Fifteen-year-old Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she's part-time shrink to a bunch of dead people with a whole lot of issues.I got this from Zombie Girrrl when she was cleaning out her shelves. Not her cup of tea + I think it sounds interesting = new book for me! Thanks, ZG!
All Megan wants is to be normal and go to homecoming, of course. Unfortunately, it's a little difficult when your dates keep getting interrupted by a bunch of slobbering Undead.
Things are about to get even more complicated for Megan. Someone in school is using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into flesh-eating Zombies, and it's looking like homecoming will turn out to be a very different kind of party the bloody kind.
Megan must stop the Zombie apocalypse descending on Carol, Arkansas. Her life and more importantly, homecoming depends on it.
The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, and The Wide Window by Lemony Snicket
Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith this week. New. Favorite. Book. I loved it! I should have a review up soon (whoa, look out! I haven't had a review in forever, but I'm working on fixing that).
I also read Fruits Basket vol. 16 by Natsuki Takaya. I really like this series! Definitely one of my favorite mangas. I'm really looking forward to reading vol. 17.
As stated above, I started The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller. I'm about 130 pages in and so far it's pretty good. It started out kind of slow, but picked up after about 100 pages. It's a nice, light read that's easy to get sucked into, if not a little weird at times.
