There hasn’t been many books lately catching my attention. If you’re a bookworm you know you’re always on the lookout for new books to add to your ever growing TBR shelf, itching for your next fix by way of purchase. It’s okay, you’re not alone. The last two books that caught my attention at work were Spelled by Betsy Schow and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke, will have a review on those this month! Since then I’ve been on the lookout with little promise coming my way this month, seems to be a slow month. Upon some bookish research I found these 3 books I’m excited to pick up next time I walk into a bookstore. Get comfortable and let me introduce you guys…

Title: Silver in the Blood
Synopsis: Society girls from New York City circa 1890, Dacia and Lou never desired to know more about their lineage, instead preferring to gossip about the mysterious Romanian family that they barely knew. But upon turning seventeen, the girls must return to their homeland to meet their relatives, find proper husbands, and—most terrifyingly—learn the deep family secrets of The Claw, The Wing, and The Smoke. The Florescus, after all, are shape-shifters, and it is time for Dacia and Lou to fulfill the prophecy that demands their acceptance of this fate… or fight against this cruel inheritance with all their might.
Everything about this synopsis is one big YES. Romania and shape-shifters? Need this one now! Released on July 7th.
Publisher: New American Library (Penguin)
Synopsis: Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time.…
Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.
Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.
When he inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn.…
This synopsis is everything! The Great Library of Alexandria is such a cool story, and I’m a big fan of Rachel Caines writing. Her Morganville Vampires series is one of my favorites! So I’m excited for this one. Released on July 7th.
Title: Survive The Night
Synopsis: We’re all gonna die down here. . . .
Julie lies dead and disemboweled in a dank, black subway tunnel, red-eyed rats nibbling at her fingers. Her friends think she’s just off with some guy—no one could hear her getting torn apart over the sound of pulsing music.
In a tunnel nearby, Casey regrets coming to Survive the Night, the all-night underground rave in the New York City subway. Her best friend Shana talked her into it, even though Casey just got out of rehab. Alone and lost in the dark, creepy tunnels, Casey doesn’t think Survive the Night could get any worse . . . until she comes across Julie’s body, and the party turns deadly.
Desperate for help, Casey and her friends find themselves running through the putrid subway system, searching for a way out. But every manhole is sealed shut, and every noise echoes eerily in the dark, reminding them they’re not alone.
They’re being hunted.
Trapped underground with someone—or something—out to get them, Casey can’t help but listen to her friend’s terrified refrain: “We’re all gonna die down here. . . .”
This sounds like a creepy/chilling read. I’d love to have this on my shelf for when I’m in need of a creepy read or for the month of October. Also that cover is gorgeous, and the synopsis just sucks me in. Released on July 7th.
