Friday Finds (5)

Friday Finds was started by Should Be Reading. The idea is to share, every Friday, books that you’ve recently discovered that sound really good!

My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer

My Soul to Take:
She doesn't see dead people, but

She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next…

Eighth Grade Bites: 

If you thought eighth grade was tough, try it with fangs and a fear of garlic.
Junior high school really sucks for thirteen-year-old Vladimir Tod, and not in the good slurp-up-the-blood kind of way. A gang of bullies harasses him daily, the principal is dogging his every move, and the girl he really likes prefers his best friend. Oh, and Vlad has to hide the fact that he's a vampire.

When the one teacher he really connects with mysteriously vanishes, Vlad is determined to find him. But then Vlad finds an unsettling note scribbled across his essay: "I know your secret."

Vlad must locate his missing teacher, dodge the principal, resist the bullies’ tempting invitations to Bite me!, and get a date for the dance—all before he is exposed for the teen vampire he is.

Neither of the these books are really new, but I just discovered them. Both of them look AMAZING!

Oh, I haven't read the Valdimir Todd series, but I have read My Soul to Take, which was pretty good. Nice finds, and hope you get to read them soon! :)
