TGIF WEEKLY 2

T.G.I.F.WEEKLY! ♪ ♫ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♫
 
So, from last weekend, I read 2/3 books.  I am currently reading the third. 
 
Again- this is a weekly blog post that will share 3 books I have on my to-read list.  My goal is to read, or at least start, one  or more of them between today and the following Friday.  Books may be fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels or anything else that might by fun or interesting to read.  Feel free to join me in any of them, discuss them, suggest future reads, etc.  

This next week is going to be a bit busy for me so I will be taking it a bit easy on my reading choices.

 Uprising (The Vampire Federation, #1) 
Vampire Federation Uprising 

Summary: "A gruesome ritual murder has stained the Oxfordshire countryside. It's just the first incident in a chain of events awakening Detective Inspector Joel Solomon to his worst nightmare-and a dreadful omen of things to come. Because Joel has a secret: he believes in vampires."

Alex Bishop is an agent of the Vampire Intelligence Agency. She's tasked with enforcing the laws of the global Vampire Federation, and hunting rogue members of her race. A tough job made tougher when the Federation comes under attack by traditionalist vampires. They have a stake in old-school terror-and in an uprising as violent as it is widespread.

Now it's plunging Alex and Joel into a deadly war between the living and the unloving-and against a horrifying tradition given new life by the blood of the innocent.
 

Why I want to read this:  Actually, I already started this quite a while ago but misplaced it while movingSo now I need to re-read parts of it and get back on track!  So are it is an interesting concept that kind of reminds me of the movie Blade.  I am curious to see and learn more.

Ravine Volume 1 Tp 
Ravine Vol 1

Summary: "In a fantastic world far from our own, an ancient magic spell almost split the world in two and left an endless ravine in the north. One man, Nebezial Asheri, driven by the deaths of his wife and daughters, will attempt to reclaim that magic and bring his loved ones back to life. The forces of an entire city, Paladia, will rise to oppose him, but his greatest foes will be a ragtag band of an outcast wizard, a dragonrider, and their allies."  

Why I want to read this: This looks like a fun graphic novel gifted to me by the published.  I am a fantasy nut so finding a graphic novel like this is great!

Why I want to read this:  Actually, I need to read this volume, and vol 11.  They are the last 2 volumes of the series and it had been fun reading it.  I have gone through a love/hate with most of the characters at some point and now it is time to see their conclusion in this manga series.
