Mercy Thompson: Homecoming
(Mercedes Thompson Graphic Novels 0)
by Patricia Briggs, Francis Tsai (Illustrator)
-graphic novel, werewolves
Amazon | Goodreads

Mercy Thompson is a walker, a magical being with the power to transform into a coyote. She lives on the fine line dividing the everyday world from a darker dimension, observing the supernatural community while standing apart.

When Mercy travels to the Tri-Cities of Washington for a job interview, she quickly finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a gang war between rival packs of werewolves. And as if fangs and fur weren’t bad enough, Mercy must deal with the scariest creature of all: her mother, who is convinced that Mercy is making a mess of her life and determined to set her daughter on the right course.

The thrilling adventures of Mercy Thompson–Moon Called, Blood Bound, and Iron Kissed–have topped the New York Times bestseller list. Now Mercy makes her comics debut in an exclusive new story created by Patricia Briggs. Mercy Thompson: Homecoming is sure to please longtime fans and capture new ones with its mix of unforgettable characters and thrilling supernatural intrigue.

-----> Have been meaning to read something from Patricia Briggs for awhile now. And got turned on to start with a graphic novel from a recommendation from Sophia Rose of the Delighted Reader.

Dreaming about getting soon:

Trust Me, I'm Lying
by Mary Elizabeth Summer
-mystery, thriller, YA
-release date: October 14, 2014
Amazon | Goodreads

Fans of Ally Carter, especially her Heist Society readers, will love this teen mystery/thriller with sarcastic wit, a hint of romance, and Ocean’s Eleven–inspired action.

Julep Dupree tells lies. A lot of them. She’s a con artist, a master of disguise, and a sophomore at Chicago’s swanky St. Agatha High, where her father, an old-school grifter with a weakness for the ponies, sends her to so she can learn to mingle with the upper crust. For extra spending money Julep doesn’t rely on her dad—she runs petty scams for her classmates while dodging the dean of students and maintaining an A+ (okay, A-) average.

But when she comes home one day to a ransacked apartment and her father gone, Julep’s carefully laid plans for an expenses-paid golden ticket to Yale start to unravel. Even with help from St. Agatha’s resident Prince Charming, Tyler Richland, and her loyal hacker sidekick, Sam, Julep struggles to trace her dad’s trail of clues through a maze of creepy stalkers, hit attempts, family secrets, and worse, the threat of foster care. With everything she has at stake, Julep’s in way over her head . . . but that’s not going to stop her from using every trick in the book to find her dad before his mark finds her. Because that would be criminal.

OTHER things on my shelf: kinda book-related

Binge-ing a book podcast...

I got turned on to The Readers after listening to Books on the Nightstand episode #299. It is book banter between two dudes, one from the U.S. and another from the U.K., but started off with both from U.K. Got hooked. And now, listening to all the episodes to catch up.
