King Solomon's Wives: Hunted 
Summary: The two thousand descendants of King Solomon’s ancient harem have the ultimate power of seduction: Their very touch is as addictive as any drug.

But that power comes at a price: Wives die giving birth. They can only bear daughters. They are only fertile until the age of twenty-four.

Hunted for hundreds of generations by men who crave their touch and fear its power, the Wives have kept themselves safe by following three simple rules:

-A Wife shall have no meaningful relationships outside the clan.
-A Wife’s addictive touch may be used only for procreation or to protect the clan.
-A Wife shall sacrifice herself for her daughter at the age of twenty-four.

But tonight, the rules have been broken, and someone must pay.

In the blistering first episode of KING SOLOMON’S WIVES, we meet Sumarra on the night she plans to conceive. Instead, she and the other wives find themselves under attack from a group of male hunters, intent on destroying them.

Sumarra has always broken small rules and indulged rebellious tendencies. Now that the Wives have been found, her defiance will either be their salvation or her own undoing.
 
Why I want to read this: This is one of my Read 4 Review books that I participate in on Goodreads.  This is something a bit different for me to read but it looked like it might be a short but interesting read.

Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1) 
Summary: Blood doesn't lie...

Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she's still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill's guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the last place anyone would think to look for vampire royalty - a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. But instead of finding safety at Amberwood Prep, Sydney discovers the drama is only just beginning.
 
Why I want to read this:  I LOVED the Vampire Academy Series!  Richelle Mead wrote in such a captivating way.  This is going to bring back some beloved characters to I can learn what happens next!  I already started reading earlier this morning.  So far, so good!

Essential Amazing Spider-Man, Vol. 1 
Summary:While attending a demonstration on radiation, high school student Peter Parker was bitten by a spider that had been exposed to radioactive rays. Learning he had gained great arachnid-like abilities, the timid teenager donned a colorful costume of his own design - seeking fame and fortune as the Amazing Spider-Man! But his Uncle Ben's death - tragedy he could have prevented - taught Peter that with great power there must also come great responsibility...and on that day a legend was born!
 
Why I want to read this: The original 20 volumes of spiderman from the 1960's!  Need I say more?  I never did read the originals but thanks to my younger brothers they got me into Spider-man.  It doesn't help that I like comics. :)
