This meme was started by the fabulous Kristi who was inspired by Alea. Check out their blogs for more information. All summaries are from the book jackets unless otherwise stated.

For Review:

The Immortal Rules – Julie Kagawa

In a future world, vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity. She must decide what – and who – are worth dying for.

My vampire creator told me this:

‘Sometime in your life, Allison Sekemoto, you will kill a human being. The question is not if it will happen, but when. Do you understand?’

I didn't then, not really.

I do know.

As I already have a US ARC and have a pre-ordered a hardcover copy, I am passing this on to Lily at Whispering of the Pages. Thanks, MIRA.

Hitler’s Angel – William Osbourne

Otto and Leni have escaped the Nazis and fled to England.

They thought they were safe, but now the British want them to go back to Germany.

Dropped behind enemy lines, they embark on a secret operation.  Their mission is to find and kidnap a girl who could bring down Hitler.

And so begins their bravest journey...

Really not my thing, but it sounds prett interesting. Thanks, Chicken House.

The Out of Office Girl – Nicola Doherty

From London...
Alice Roberts is having a rubbish summer.

She’s terrified of her boss, her career is stallin. And she’s just been dumped – by text message. But things are about to change...

...to Italy
When her boss Olivia is taken ill, Alice is sent on the work trip of a lifetime: to a villa in Sicily, to edit the autobiography of Hollywood bad boy Luther Carson. But it’s not all yachts, nightclubs and Camparis. Luther’s arrogant agent Sam wants him to ditch the book. Luther himself is gorgeous, charming – and impossible to read. There only seems to be one way to get his attention, and it definitely invloves moixing business with pleasure.

Alice is out of the office, and into deep trouble...
...with love.

This is obviously an adult novel, but I love the sound of it. |It feels reminiscent of Paige Toon’s Johnny Be Good. Thanks, Headline!

Secret Breakers: The Power of Three – HL Dennis

Imagine an ancient manuscript no one can read.

Imagine a secret code for someone just like you.

Imagine the chance to uncover a Truth hidden for centuries – but the Rules say it’s forbidden to even try.

Three have been chose to join a secret team to solve the most mysterious code in the world.

Brodie Bray likes a challenge. But when she and her friends try to crack the code, she finds someone will kill to try and stop them.

This sounds pretty interesting, but it won’t be top of my tbr pile. Thanks, Hodder.

Bought:

Graffiti Moon – Cath Crowley

Senior year is over, and Lucy has the perfect way to celebrate: tonight she’s going to find Shadow, the mysterious graffiti artist whose work appears all over the city. Somewhere in in the glass darkness, he’s out there, spraying colour, spraying birds and blue sky on the night. And Lucy knows that a guy who paintslike Shadow is someone she could fall for – really fall for.

The last person Lucy wants to spend this night with is Ed, the guy she’s managed to avoid since punching him in the nose on the most awkward date of her life. But when Ed tells Lucy he knows where to find Shadow, the two of them are suddenly on an all-night search to places where Shadow’s pieces of heartbreak and escape echo off the city walls. And what Lucy can’t see is the one thing that’s right before her eyes.

From Cath Crowley comes an exhilarating adventure set against a moonlit cityscape – one night of art and poetry, humour and longing, anticipation and risk, and (maybe) love.

YAYYAYYAYYAY!! I will finally discover the proported beauty of Cath Crowley’s writing thanks to getting this instead of an Easter egg from my mum :)
