"waiting on" wednesday: 03/30/11




{ ++ } This is, I think, a fantastic thing started over at Breaking the Spine, that I recently decided to get involved in.  Basically, this is a chance to go on a little bit about the books we're anxiously awaiting either to read or to be published.  It seems like I'm always finding new things to read, be it a new series, or a stand-alone, and there's a peculiar kind of anticipation that comes from knowing a new book by a favorite author is thisclose to being released.

So, here's a few of mine, and the why's.
                                     

                            expected publication 2011
                                   @amazon.com
                                   @goodreads.com

No summary up yet, but this is the first novel in the spin-off to Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series.   I'm quite excited about this one.  It's currently expected out this year.  I had some mixed emotions on how the final book in the VA series ended, and how some plot lines there were handled, but, this book looks like it has a lot of potential.  So I will definitely be reading it.



                  Hardcover, 320 pages
         Expected publication: April 26th 2011

                         @amazon.com
                        @goodreads.com


Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.
Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.  (synopsis from goodreads.com)

I don't know why the summary for this one grabbed me so much, but it did.  I've never even read anything by this author before, but I saw this book online and knew I'd have to check it out.  I love paranormal stuff, and this one seems like it has some potential.  


Okay folks, that's it for this week!  So many of the books I want to read aren't due out for awhile, or are series I am catching up on, etc, so I don't know how many reads I have that are coming out in the immediate future, BUT, I look forward to participating!  

Everyone have a lovely evening!
