There have been a couple of books that I have read recently that I haven't put up here. Well that changes now!
1) Misguided Angels - Melissa de la Cruz
2) Iron Witch - Karen Mahoney
BLUE BLOODS #5 MISGUIDED ANGELS - MELISSA DE LA CRUZ
This is like Vampire/Angel Gossip Girl in a way. I love it! The Blue Bloods are fallen angels turned vampires. They are responsible for the arts, science and anything beautiful in human lives. The Silver Bloods are the Blue Bloods who follow the Morningstar - Lucifer. They want to free him completely from his seal but everyone thinks the Silver Bloods are just a myth...

After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence--with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the seven gates that guard earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silverbloods.
As the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler closer to a terrifying crossroads--and a choice that will determine the destiny of all vampires.
IRON WITCH - KAREN MAHONEY
FREAK. That’s what her classmates call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood. When she was seven, a horrific fey attack killed her father and drove her mother mad. Donna’s own nearly fatal injuries from the assault were fixed by magic—the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. The child of alchemists, Donna feels cursed by the magical heritage that destroyed her parents and any chance she had for a normal life. The only thing that keeps her sane and grounded is her relationship with her best friend, Navin Sharma.
When the darkest outcasts of Faerie—the vicious wood elves—abduct Navin, Donna finally has to accept her role in the centuries old war between the humans and the fey. Assisted by Xan, a gorgeous half-fey dropout with secrets of his own, Donna races to save her friend—even if it means betraying everything her parents and the alchemist community fought to the death to protect.
This book comes out in Febuary 2011 and I can't wait for people to read it. It is different to some of the paranormal stuff that is out there. It has its good and bad characters, but it also has that grey area. What if what you were brought up to believe wasn't the whole truth? I highly recommend reading this next year!
