Throwback Thursday (11)

Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;
Looking Forward To...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves?
Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start?  Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

I've found in the last year that I really enjoy reading books with fairies and such in as well.  So on a trip to the used book store I found this one and picked it up as I had been wanting it for a while.  But, unfortunately I've not been able to get to reading it yet.  I hope to one of these days.

Goodreads Synopsis:
When Henry Atherton arrives at the house of eccentric old Mr. Fogarty, he comes upon crown prince Pyrgus Malvae, who has escaped the Faerie realm, where the Faeries of the Night want to kill him. Mr. Fogarty and Henry decide to help the prince return home. It's a complex situation, involving an evil demon, two avaricious glue factory owners, and Lord Hairstreak, leader of the Faeries of the Night, each with a personal agenda that will lead to taking over the realm. A subplot (Henry realizes that his mother, not his father, is having an affair with his father's secretary) is totally unnecessary, and there are discrepancies in the story and some awkwardness to slow things down. Still, there's enough solid adventure in the Faerie realm to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

  1. I've never heard of Faerie Wars before. I'm still not convinced about the fae - I don't mind stories about them but they can't replace werewolves and vamps for me!

    Speaking of Vamps...my throwback is a vampire series...
