Jess's Dusty Read
Infinite Days
by Rebecca Maizel

"Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than one."

Those were some of Rhode's last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.

It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste. Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.

I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn't Rhode. But Justin was... daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream. I never expected to be sixteen again... then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me.

Jess's thoughts: This has been on my shelf for a while! Donna has read this one, and she loved it. I think the only reason I put it off was because last year when it was published in the Summer, book 2 wasn't going to out until late this year (2012) that's why I've been putting it off. I've only heard good things about it, and I will get around to reading it this year. I hope.

 Donna's Dusty Read

by Heather Dixon

Confined to their dreary castle while mourning their mother's death, Princess Azalea and her 11 sisters join The Keeper, who is trapped in a magic passageway, in a nightly dance that soon becomes nightmarish.

Donna's thoughts: I can not wait to read this. Haley from Ya-aholic bought me this book for my birthday last year and I still haven't read it. It sounds amazing and totally unique. And I adore the cover so hopefully it's good! 

So that's our Dusty Read's for this week! Don't forget to leave us your thoughts below. 
Happy Reading!
