Book Bits: Vicki Pettersson, Rachel Vincent, Andrea Cremer, Cassie Alexander, Karina Cooper

Book Bits: Vicki Pettersson, Rachel Vincent, Andrea Cremer, Cassie Alexander, Karina Cooper See, I thought the cover of Vicki Pettersson‘s The Taken was gorgeous. It made me want to buy a red dress. Looks like the cover art for its sequel The Lost is also shopping inspiration. Rachel Vincent’s Unbound series is brilliant. If you haven’t read Blood Bound or Shadow Bound yet, do it. Emotional rollercoaster rides. I’m eager for book three, but just got word the release date...
