Book Chick City. There are so many books out there that I want to read that this is the only way I can keep track!
The heavenly theme continues this week with books based on a Gods theme...
After three years in prison, Shadow has done his time. But as the time until his release ticks away, he can feel a storm brewing. Two days before he gets out, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in adulterous circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr Wednesday claiming to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America. Together they embark on a very strange journey across the States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every winter in one small American town. But the storm is about to break...
I've been eyeing this book up for months, possibly years. It made such a big splash when it was first released but I some how missed it. Since then, I occasionally pick it up in the book stores but never quite made it to the till with it. One day I will read it!
In the city of Shadow, beneath the World Tree, alleyways shimmer with magic and godlings live hidden among mortalkind. Oree Shoth, a blind artist, takes in a homeless man who glows like a living sun to her strange sight. However, this act of kindness is to engulf Oree in a nightmarish conspiracy. Someone, somehow, is murdering godlings, leaving their desecrated bodies all over the city. Oree's peculiar guest is at the heart of it, his presence putting her in mortal danger - but is it him the killers want, or Oree? And is the earthly power of the Arameri king their ultimate goal, or have they set their sights on the Lord of Night himself?
I really enjoyed The Hundred-Thousand Kingdoms, the first of teh Inheritance Trilogy earlier this year, so I'm looking forward to getting this, the next in the trilogy!
This seems like a fun read - I haven't read any chick-lit for a while so I'm looking forward to some lighter reads!
So what are you wishing for this week? :)
