Friday Finds (11/06/09)

Friday Finds at the Store is a meme hosted by Jennay at My Tea Time is Book Time. It is totally easy and everyone can join. Basically just post the books you found at the bookstore or library. Now others can see the great finds you had and maybe they will pick it up on their next bookstore/library run. HAPPY readings!!!

From the inside flap of Rampant by Diana Peterfreund
Forget everything you ever knew about unicorns...Real unicorns are venomous, man-eating monsters with huge fangs and razor-sharp horns. Fortunately, they've been extinct for a hundred and fifty years.

Or not.

Astrid had always scoffed at her eccentric mother's stories about killer unicorns. But when one of the monsters attacks her boyfriend---thereby ruining any chance of him taking her to the prom---Astrid finds herself headed to Rome to train as a unicorn hunter at the ancient cloisters the hunters have used for centuries.

However, at the cloisters all is not what it seems. Outside, the unicorns wait to attack. And within, Astrid faces other, unexpected threats: from the crumbling, bone-covered walls that vibrate with a terrible power to the hidden agendas of her fellow hunters to---perhaps most dangerously of all---her growing attraction to a handsome art student...and attraction that could jeopardize everything.

What did you find?


  1. That is so wierd, I was just telling a friend someone should write about Unicorns and he said..Unicorns are nice mythical creatures and I said..they don't have to be..LOL Might have to read this

  2. I know, right? I've been thinking about unicorns lately (probably b/c I was going through old photos and saw unicorn posters on my sister's wall). I thought they were pretty and nice, but there was poster that always freaked me out. I cannot wait to get to this book!
