Ruby’s Bookish Bundles is a new feature I’m starting here on the blog. In it, I’m going to post about three books:
- Want Now: One recently released or already published title I’m lusting after.
- Want Soon: One upcoming title I’m looking forward to, based on things I’ve heard, the cover, and the description.
- Want Someday: One upcoming title I’ve heard about that sounds like it could be interested but is so far off into the future it doesn’t even have a cover yet.
I love discovering new books, and I love sharing about the books I discover. However, I’ve been wanting to do something a little different from (and more involved than) a WoW post, so I created this new feature for myself. Anyone is welcome to participate, or to share their own wants. If you do so on your own blog, leave a link so I can visit!
I love pink. After red, it’s the most eye-catching book cover color there is for me. I knew, in this week’s Bundle, that I wanted to feature The Chocolate Kiss. I toyed with a few ways to tie the Bundle together–Paris? Chocolate? Both good things, but to be honest, pink covers seemed like the most fun. Paris and chocolate will come up again–that I can promise.
I think the hero in this sounds kind of divinely and irritating all at once. I also like that it takes place in Kentucky–all my travel is done via armchair these days!
When tragedy strikes, seventeen year-old Ashton Blake sets out on a cross-country road trip, leaving the comforts of Malibu for the mountains of Kentucky. Along the way, she encounters Gabe Willoughby—the mysterious drifter with eyes like the sea and a knowing smile. Getting to know Gabe raises questions about her past. But no secret can be buried forever, and Ashton soon finds herself in a world where water is air and myth becomes reality. Just as Ashton comes to accept her newfound heritage, she’s summoned to fulfill a treaty laid down centuries before — a treaty that will divide her love and test her loyalty. In the end, her future isn’t her biggest concern, her humanity is. To run may mean war, but is she strong enough to stay?
Raise your hand if you remember the show SeaQuest? Good to see I’m not alone. I always think of that show when I see the cover of this book. I’m intrigued by the idea of living in water. There would be no paper. Although, on the other hand, I guess it wouldn’t be a big deal when you spilled a glass of red wine…
THE NEPTUNE PROJECT is set in a future where the seas are rising and global warming is out of control. Nere Hanson and her teen companions are shocked to learn they have been genetically altered by their desperate parents to live in the sea. Protected by her loyal dolphins, shy Nere leads the rest on a perilous journey to her father’s new colony. Fighting off government divers, sharks and giant squid, can Nere and her companions learn to trust each before their dangerous new world destroys them?
I super duper love alternate reality stories and the idea of experiencing many of them (while nerve-wracking, I’m sure) is bound to be fun.
A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life–her father’s death years ago, her mother’s medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her–seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she’s gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they’re a happy couple… a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying “Happy Anniversary”… and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship’s doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she’s warned that these “alternate realities” could become permanent.She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?
As always, feel free to recommend any titles you’ve come across, are waiting on, or have just plain piqued your interest. Go on, dip your toes in! The water’s fine.
