During last week’s IMM or On My Nook, I declared that I was not going to buy any more books this year in order to clear out my Nook/Shelf backlog.  Well…that was only half true.  I didn’t purchase and books with money, no I took another route and snagged a few books from the free shelf over at Barnes & Noble.  So I guess technically I didn’t break my promise to myself, only found a tiny loop-hole around it.  I am not sure if that’s a good or bad thing…ha!  Also, I was given three awesome books to read from NetGalley.  Books I had to read as soon as I knew they were up for grabs. Scroll down, you’ll see.  Anyway that’s pretty much it for this week; enjoy the new books On My Nook.

Overview:

Love can never die.Love conquers all, so they say. But can Cupid’s arrow pierce the hearts of the living and the dead—or rather, the undead? Can a proper young Victorian lady find true love in the arms of a dashing zombie? The year is 2195. The place is New Victoria—a high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era. A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country’s political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls. But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who has squandered the family fortune and now plans to marry her niece off for money. For Nora, no fate could be more horrible—until she’s nearly kidnapped by an army of walking corpses. But fate is just getting started with Nora. Catapulted from her world of drawing-room civility, she’s suddenly gunning down ravenous zombies alongside mysterious black-clad commandos and confronting “The Laz,” a fatal virus that raises the dead—and hell along with them. Hardly ideal circumstances. Then Nora meets Bram Griswold, a young soldier who is brave, handsome, noble . . . and dead. But as is the case with the rest of his special undead unit, luck and modern science have enabled Bram to hold on to his mind, his manners, and his body parts. And when his bond of trust with Nora turns to…

Overview:

Two scientists from Earth discover how to make a worm hole within minutes of a global nuclear attack. After fleeing through the wormhole, they discover entirely new sensations. Whith the scientific knowledge of earth, and the ability to use spiritual energy to affect the world around them, the scientists create a paradise for the human inhabitants; until they disagree on the form of governing…
A war engulfs the planet as the scientists try to assert their form of governing. Jerard gives a species from the spirit realm authority to possess the bodies of any law-breakers for a short time to help prevent crime. Terrance insists these beings are not mature enough to support such an idealistic role, which proves correct as the Gorinthian spirits begin possessing people for the sole purpose of experiencing human sensations. Terrance and his allies finally defeat Jerard and his host of Gorinthians by creating a shield below the planet’s crust that prevents the planet’s spirit from reaching the surface. As a result, the entire world almost dies as refugees are forced into small pockets where the planet’s spirit burst through the shield at a much higher pressure. The effect of the planet’s overwhelming spirit causes severe mutations in the few hotspots left around the globe. Humans begin to change into a different species, while plant life becomes more exotic and sentient. This story takes place two thousand years after the great war, with the shield that protected the planet’s inhabitants from the Gorinthians has nearly disintigrated. It is up to a small group of people from the city of Chasel Ri’ Aven to find a way to stop the Gorinthian hordes before it is too late. To add to the confusion, the wormhole that deposited Terrance and Jerard on the new world was never disconnected. It flops through space-time like a true worm, sucking unsuspecting humans and other species onto the new world at random.
