My bookshelf, this month

I've decided it is just way too awesome to not do, so I've decided to take part in stacking the shelves, started by Tynga's reviews it is basically where we book bloggers post about what books we are adding to the shelves this without further ado, here is my list. 

My bookshelf, this month...

The Vampire's daughter
The Vampire's Daughter (Of Light and Darkness, #1)

When one human stands before an army of impossible obstacles, the likelihood of overcoming them in this coming-of-age modern fairytale may result in war between light and darkness.

Abandoned as an infant in Prague, naive and strong-willed Charlotte Ruzikova was raised by one of the last Vampires left alive. As a human, she knows no other home than the one nestled deep in the woods of Eastern Europe, where Witches drew spells of enchantment, Phasers threw tea parties, and Elves are the closest in kin. Charlotte has lived her life in the dark with her Guardian, content to having him to herself and reveling in his attention, until she's realizes she wants more...

Resident medical doctor and Vampire, Valek Ruzik fears the day his ward would come of age and blossom into a fine woman, and he is forced to confront his own motives as time is of the essence once his past catches up to him, and their lives become endangered...

As genocide and war threatens their secret society, the dictator in power is ready to wipe out Valek's race, but Charlotte will not allow that to happen. Fighting for the only one she's ever loved and truly believed in, she will do whatever it takes to save their love...before the sun comes up and light takes over.

All these things I've done

All These Things I've Done (Birthright, #1)

In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend. That is until her ex is accidently poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight--at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.
Engrossing and suspenseful, All These Things I've Done is an utterly unique, unputdownable read that blends both the familiar and the fantastic.

Gabrielle Zevin 

I'm definitely looking forward to reading this one, as it sounds awesome and it is intriguing  in a world where chocolate is illegal I would be the biggest criminal out there. 

Songs of love and death: original tales of star-crossed love
Songs of Love and Death: All-Original Tales of Star-Crossed Love (Kushiel's Legacy #1.5; Ph├Ędre's Trilogy, #1.5; The Dresden Files, #11.5)
IN this star-studded cross-genre anthology, seventeen of the greatest modern authors of fantasy, science fiction, and romance explore the borderlands of their genres with brand-new tales of ill-fated love. From zombie-infested woods in a postapocalyptic America to faery-haunted rural fields in eighteenth- century England, from the kingdoms of high fantasy to the alien world of a galaxy-spanning empire, these are stories of lovers who must struggle against the forces of magic and fate. Award-winning, bestselling author Neil Gaiman demonstrates why he's one of the hottest stars in literature today with "The Thing About Cassandra," a subtle but chilling story of a man who meets an old girlfriend he had never expected to see.
Authors: George R.R. Martin, Gardner Dozois, Jacqueline Carey, Lisa Tuttle, Linnea Sinclair, Mary Jo Putney, Tanith Lee, Peter S. Beagle, Yasmine Galenorn, Diana Gabaldon, Jo Beverly, Carrie Vaughn, M.L.N. Hanover, Ceclia Holland, Melinda M. Snodgrass,  Robin Hobb, Neil Gaiman, and Marjorie M. Liu, 
Alright I'm really REALLY looking forward to reading this one. I'm so excited for it.
