Moon-y Monday #2

Crazy just keeps filling up my life
but here's a heads up on what's up and coming here at Cold Moon Violet

I've started

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Pub: Sept 13th 2011 by Doubleday

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.
True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.
Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

So far it's really interesting and I'm curious if it will live up to the hype.

I'm also finishing

Fingersmith by Sarah Waters
Pub.Oct.1st 2002 by Riverhead Trade

In Victorian England, an orphan girl is sent to a country estate to work for-and ultimately woo-its young heiress, on behalf of a mysterious benefactor known as Gentleman.

I'm about 2/3 of the way through and this is a pretty interesting book. I'm really curious how it will all play out in the end as there are many many twists and surprises throughout the story so far.

Seers by Heather Frost
Pub:  October 4th 2011 by Bonneville

For Kate Bennet, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble.

I have this book from Netgalley and I'm planning on getting it read for an advance review . Hopefully  it's good, the reviews so far have been a little mixed.

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare
pub Aug 30th 2011 by Harpercollins

Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies with delicate constitutions come for the sea air, and men in their prime are... nowhere to be found. Or are they?

Spindle Cove is the destination of choice for certain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony, and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there.

Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here. So far as he can tell, there's nothing in this place but spinsters... and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders to gather a militia. It's a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisite Susanna Finch—a woman who is determined to save her personal utopia from the invasion of Bram's makeshift army.

Susanna has no use for aggravating men; Bram has sworn off interfering women. The scene is set for an epic battle... but who can be named the winner when both have so much to lose?

I picked this for a light read and I'm about half way through it. So far it's a light enjoyable story.

I'm also really looking forward to Cold Fire by Kate Elliot (this week) and Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick.

I will try to get some reviews up this week, but we're having some crazy in our house. We're having asbestos and mold removed from the basement, then the carpets are all being replaced (So we're all trapped upstairs for now), on top of that, my sweetie dog Sophie has been diagnosed with Cushing's disease so I'll be starting her treatment this week. With all the madness here I'm trying to keep up on reading but I admit I've been short on time these days.

Happy Reading!
