Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

Ghoulies. Ghosties. Long-legged beasties. Things that go bump in the night… The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity-and humanity from them. Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she’d rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in professional ballroom dance.

Sounds pretty simple, right? It would be, if it weren’t for the talking mice, the telepathic mathematicians, the asbestos supermodels, and the trained monster-hunter sent by the Price family’s old enemies, the Covenant of St. George. When a Price girl meets a Covenant boy, high stakes, high heels, and a lot of collateral damage are almost guaranteed. To complicate matters further, local cryptids are disappearing, strange lizard-men are appearing in the sewers, and someone’s spreading rumors about a dragon sleeping underneath the city…

Great golly, Miss Molly! This week’s list of releases was not only extensive, it was full of really exciting book releases. (I didn’t want you waiting ages for your page to load, so the madness had to end somewhere. ^_^). For me, there are precisely two books that I simply had to have (and have pre-ordered in order to ensure they are mine!): Deep Dark Secret, the third in the fabulous Secret McQueen series by Sierra Dean; and Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire, a brand new series that looks extremely promising. The former series I’d slept on until fairly recently (thank you Stella for putting an end to that!), while the latter I’ve been awaiting for some time. Other than those two, I came across the contemporary romance Perfect on Paper by accident; it had an intriguing premise, however, and is definitely going near the top of my “To Buy” list. It’s nice to see some solid first-in-series and stand-alones coming out this week. Mixes things up a bit, don’tcha think?


And how about yourself? Do you have any pre-orders ready to go, any trips to the bookstore planned for this week? When you come across an interesting-sounding new series release, are you excited to read it immediately, or do you prefer waiting until a couple of installments are released?

    Lol, no matter how many posts like this one on the blogs I follow I encounter, every time there are new books to covet. Yes, a very expensive month this one, lots of new books by my favourite authors.

    Discount Armageddon does sound cool. Will have to put it on my wishlist.

    I also pre-ordered Fair Game and Oracle’s Moon. I really want the new Moira Rogers Hunter’s Prey as I love their books. Fancy a good few more but they’ll have to go on the wish list for abit!
