Happy Easter! Hope you're all having a good day with plenty of chocolate eggs and spring flowers! :)
Harry is the best and technically the 'only' at what he does, being the lone professional wizard PI in the Chicago phonebook. So when the Chicago PD has cases that transcend mortal capabilities, they come to him for answers. For the 'everyday' world is actually full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. Yet despite his precautions, Harry tends to stumble from crisis to drama in his dealings with the supernatural world - call it an occupational hazard. Here, he unfailingly manages to get on the wrong side of werewolf, fae and vampires alike. And that's where his own rather special powers come into play .
I think the Dresden Files is one of the best, if not the best UF series around - certainly one of the most consistent! So this book of short stories featuring Harry Dresden was one I had on pre-order for a long time! It arrived this week.
Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later - Francine Pascal
Publisher: UK - Arrow Books
It’s been ten years since the Wakefield twins graduated from Sweet Valley High, and a lot has happened. For a start, Elizabeth and Jessica have had a falling out of epic proportions, after Jessica committed the ultimate betrayal, and this time it looks like Elizabeth will never be able to forgive her.
Suddenly Sweet Valley isn’t big enough for the two of them, so Elizabeth has fled to New York to immerse herself in her lifelong dream of becoming a serious reporter, leaving a guilt-stricken Jessica contemplating the unthinkable: life without her sister.
Despite the distance between them, the sisters are never far from each other’s thoughts. Jessica longs for forgiveness, but Elizabeth can’t forget her twin’s duplicity. Uncharacteristically, she decides the only way to heal her broken heart is to get revenge. Always the ‘good’ twin, the one getting her headstrong sister out of trouble, Elizabeth is now about to turn the tables...
I was a HUGE fan of Sweet Valley when I was young (before I discovered Point Horror and Christopher Pike) - I was so excited to see that Francine Pascal had written a book set 10 years after high school! I don't expect it to be much good, but purely for nostalgia I had to purchase it! :)
So what have you picked up this week? :)
