What she never planned for was Quinn Donegan... the living, breathing advertisement for sinful behavior that waltzed into her life. With an angelic face, a hard body and a butt-load of charm, Quinn had a way with the ladies...a lot of ladies. Cursed with a deadly, addictive touch, his trail of indiscretion blazed across five hundred years. Tired and jaded, Ryann is a shocking revelation Quinn didn't see coming. Filled with desire, yet unable to touch one another, Ryann and Quinn embark on a daunting journey, battling frustrating physical limitations while exploring their new love. In a race against the clock, Ryann learns she must plead for Quinn's life before...the Eve of Samhain. Determined to end her lover's suffering, not even the danger dogging her every move can keep her from her mission. 

Generation Dead: Passing StrangeGeneration Dead: Passing Strange by Daniel Waters

Karen DeSonne is used to pretending to be something she’s not.  All her life, she’s passed as a normal all-American teenager; with her friends, with her family, and at school.  Passing cost her the love of her life.  And now that Karen’s dead, she’s still passing – this time, as alive

Meanwhile, Karen’s dead friends have been fingered in a high-profile murder, causing a new round of anti-zombie regulations that have forced nearly all of Oakvale’s undead into hiding. Karen soon learns that the “murder” was a hoax, staged by Pete Martinsburg and his bioist zealots. Obtaining enough evidence to expose the fraud and prove her friends’ innocence means doing the unthinkable: betraying her love by becoming Pete’s girlfriend. Karen’s only hope is that the enemy never realizes who she really is – because the consequences would be even worse than death.

Complicating matters further is the burglar’s claim than an evil mage named Vere has just been released from limbo, and wants three objects of power that could destroy humankind.

Saranith Kamrasi, a member of Senanga's royal family and an officer in its navy, is summoned by Cinkarion, one of eight living crystals. It brings her great power, but destroys her lifelong companion.

Yet the Wizard Nathan, also born a Kamrasi but abandoned by his parents for lack of weresight, defends Cassinga despite his tiger blood.

good job sowan is how you pronounce that stupid title but I know what you mean it's confusing. Definitely will look forward to more of your imm

ParaJunkee said...

So-wan - I'm sure that a lot of us "readers" have the pronunciation problem. You see it printed a million times, but never spoken aloud. So when you finally find a use for it in a sentence you sound like a deet.

Of the books you got, liked the sound of
Being Jamie Baker. A superhero story. LOL.

Glad to hear you're enjoying it.

Lisa said...

Awesome vlog post! You are adorable!

Sorry about the confusion with the correct pronunciation of my title. Samhain is pronounced "Sew" like sewing, or the word "so" and "en."
Hope that helps!

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

I was beaten to the pronunciation help! But I did want to say I love that you made a video! I like seeing what people look like when they are from blogs that I adore. ;)

Oh, and I totally agree with you about the weird way the webcam works!! I was using my husband's MacBook last week to try it out for my IMM and the camera is like, totally reversed from the way you think it'll go! Argh! Trying to get the covers into the shot was a nightmare and took a lot of retakes and editing. ;) Do another one though I will watch!!

I agree with Tynga, it is fun to see what you look like. I am not sure which Passing Strange cover I like better, I didn't realize it was the same book until you pointed it out.

happy reading.

Emily said...

Nice job Rachel! I'm intrigued by the Edge titles as well- a couple of them are definitely intriguing. And as soon as I'm moved and settled, I'm catching up with Nancy Gideon's series too! Enjoy your books!

Chrizette said...

Loved the VLOG, Rachel. It is so much fun hearing the voice (and the accent for us from outside of the USA) from a fellow blogger. You did a great job - hope there will be more in future!
