Hill Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls, #3) by Maggie Stiefvater Destined for an Early Grave (Night Huntress, #4) by Jeaniene Frost The Sweet Scent of Blood (Spellcrackers.com, #1) by Suzanne McLeod Desire Unchained (Demonica, #2) by Larissa Ione The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3) by Rick Riordan Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse, #10) by Charlaine Harris Twice Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #3) by Chloe Neill

Just got to figure out the tenth book it might be Grimspace, but as I haven't read it I don't really know what it involves.
