[New Books] August 10 to 16 2010

  • The Hellbound Heart (Clive Barker)
    I didn't get hooked to Barker's Abarat series but writing's okay. The premise of this one intrigued me a lot~
  • Half Moon Investigations (Eoin Colfer)
    I didn't read the plot. I just thought of collecting anything by the author of the Artemis Fowl series because I'm sure they'll be good. Hehe.
  • Belle: A Retelling of "Beauty and the Beast": Once Upon a Time (Cameron Dokey)
    I. Absolutely. Can't. Resist. Fairy. Tale. Adaptations/Retellings.
  • The Lost World (Arthur Conan Doyle)
    Huge fan of Doyle because of the Holmes series. I didn't expect that he had the dinosaurs idea too! Awesome!
  • Corydon Trilogy #1: Corydon and the Island of Monsters (Tobias Druitt)
    Mythology.... I really couldn't resist. Haha!
  • Interworld (Neil Gaiman & Michael Reaves)
    It's not often for me to see a Neil Gaiman book on sale~ And I'm a sucker for different worlds stuff~
  • Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth (J.V. Hart)
    The popular villain as a main character? That will always interest me =D
  • Philosophy Made Simple (Robert Hellenga)
    Novels involving philosophical ideas... can't resist. Haha! And I haven't read a novel with a Hindu marriage and a main character befriending an elephant. I wonder how those things got connected to philosophy, haha!
  • Journeys in the Dead Season (Spencer Jordan)
    A psychological thriller! The idea of a murderer being inspired by a soldier's memories in war intrigued me~
  • The Rose of Sebastopol (Katharine McMahon)
    It reminded me so much of Sedgwick's "The Foreshadowing", which I loved so much~
  • Breathe: A Ghost Story (Cliff McNish)
    I've been seeing this author's name for so many times because many of this person's works had caught my interest but I had second thoughts on buying them. Then recently I saw this one on sale, I no longer hesitated. Hehe.
  • Bible of Clay (Julia Navarro)
    I haven't read the more popular Navarro novel but.... this book's pretty new. Rare to see something pretty recent and popular on sale. Ehehe
  • The Tapestry 1: The Hound of Rowan (Henry H. Neff)
    I've heard that though it has so many similarities with Harry Potter, it had tons of positive reviews. That got me really interested.
  • The Painter of Battles (Arturo Perez-Reverte)
    I have yet to read the other works of this author that I have but the premise of this one seemed really interesting. I hope I won't regret it.
  • Pendergast #9: Cemetery Dance (Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child)
    The plot got me interested me so much but now I kinda regret it when I found out that it's the NINTH installment of a series I'm not familiar with! Waaah! Can I read this without reading the previous books? Huhu.
  • Septimus Heap #2: Flyte (Angie Sage)
    I loooooooooooove Magyk, so I'm totally completing this series~
  • Septimus Heap: The Magykal Papers (Angie Sage)
    I got it on sale! It's what motivated me to start the Septimus series in the first place, hehe.
  • The Youngest Templar #1: Keeper of the Grail (Michael Spradlin)
    It sounds cliche but it had sooooooooo many positive reviews. That made me really interested on it. Besides, I'm a ucker for medieval stuff.
