Book Haul: Borders

The contents of my recent book haul at Borders on Sunday, and a short synopsis of each. Enjoy! I'm looking forward to reviewing these lovely titles.

Blood Promise by Richelle Mead (Genre: Y.A. Science Fiction / Fantasy / Horror)

How far will Rose go to keep her promise? The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir's academy was the deadliest ever in the school's history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them... including Dimitri. He'd rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa--the one she has sworn to protect no matter what--and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the one she loves most?

First Love by Ivan Turgenev (Genre: Fiction / Classic Literature)

One of Russian literature's most renowned love stories -- a vivid and sensitive account of adolescent love, wherein the sixteen year old protagonist falls in love with the beautiful but older woman next door, plunging him into a whirlwind of changing emotions that are heightened by her capriciousness, and leading to a truly heart-rending revalation.

Everlasting by Angie Frasier (Genre: Y.A. Historical Fiction)

Sailing aboard her father's ship is all Camille Rowen ever wanted. But as a lady in 1855 San Francisco, her future is set. On her last voyage before she must marry a man she doesn't love, Camille learns about a life-changing secret in Australia.
