How many times can you die for love?

A near-fatal car crash unlocks memories from Rachel MacReady’s past life, dredging up secrets taken to the grave. And even as Rachel discovers the hidden power that is her birthright, she finds herself drawn to the reincarnates of two very different men. In that past life, both loved her. One might even have loved her to death...

Ok I haven't actually started reading this one as I write this post - but in a few hours, I will be!  Sounds mysteriously spooky!

What I've Just Finished Reading

Die for Me by Amy Plum

Published: 10 May 2011 by HarperTeen

Pages: 341 (hardback)

Source: owned

In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life--and memories--behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant--an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again. 

I admit, I'm a bit of a cynic when it comes to YA paranormal romance - I'm not a fan of insta-love, I don't get why you would fall in love with a guy who has some damn creepy stuff going on, and YA isn't always my cup of tea.  But Die For Me definitely surpassed my expectations.  Review to come in a few days!

What's Up Next

Voyage of the Dead by David P. Forsyth

Published: 2011

Pages: 222

Source: author for review

Voyage of the Dead is the first book of the Sovereign Spirit Saga detailing the adventures of several groups of survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse. Most of them are aboard a ship that is well equipped to survive the end of civilization, while others struggle to survive in a world suddenly overrun by undead cannibals. This is a science fiction adventure set within a horror genre, full of blood, guts, violence and the human emotions that fuel our survival instincts.

Zombies, survivors, boats and cannibals?  Oh I'm so there!

I've just noticed a perhaps disturbing trend in my books this week....a whole lotta death!
