Waiting on Wednesday (6/29)

Hey!


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Button thanks to Danny @ Bewitched Bookworms

Apparently I've been so busy looking for fantastic debut novels and hoping that I'll find another favorite series, that I forgot to bring into the spotlight the books I was looking forward to the most! Or maybe it's just that obvious that I WANT THEM ASAP!

Goodreads Blurb:

For the first time, Kim Harrison illuminate every aspect of the world that has captured so many followers. The Hollows Insider will feature in-depth, new information on all the characters and settings, an overarching mini-story, maps and illustrations, and Harrison’s own thoughts on how she works her magic.

As wondrous and engaging as the Hollows novels, this is the ultimate guide to the wildly popular series.

Beautifully designed and illustrated, this four-color guide takes readers inside the world of the Hollows as never before, and is sure to be a must-have for every Kim Harrison fan. (points at myself)

Kim is my favorite author, The Hollows is one of my favorite Urban Fantasy series ever (it's also on the EPIC series list;) ) and... need I say more? I want this Hollow's Insider's STAT!

Goodreads blurb:

When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood.

Another favorite author, of course; The Vampire Academy is one of my all times favorite YA series (right there next to The Mortal Instruments and other EPIC series), so... I'm dying to read this one! (still trying to avoid reviews, which is not an easy thing to do, me being a blogger and all, but I really, really want to discover this story on my own; for City of Fallen Angels it didn't work *grunts*)


by Kiersten White

Goodreads blurb:

Evie finally has the normal life she’s always longed for. But she’s shocked to discover that being ordinary can be . . . kind of boring. Just when Evie starts to long for her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she’s given a chance to work for them again. Desperate for a break from all the normalcy, she agrees.

But as one disastrous mission leads to another, Evie starts to wonder if she made the right choice. And when Evie’s faerie ex-boyfriend Reth appears with devastating revelations about her past, she discovers that there’s a battle brewing between the faerie courts that could throw the whole supernatural world into chaos. The prize in question? Evie herself.

So much for normal.

Paranormalcy was in my Top 5 Favorite Books of 2010, so of course I can't wait to read the sequel! Besides, it seems a bleeping perfect summer read!<3

As a side, personal note, Kiersten was on vacation in Romania last year.*gasp* (hello, no one ever comes to Romania!) She was even here, in Bucharest, (she was like taking pictures in the park right across the street) and I could have just gone to the store down the street and meet her, bribe her for a signed ARC or something (just kidding - almost) but I. HAD. NO. IDEA at the moment. So much for a stalking fangirl! *bangs head on the wall*

Anyway, that's what I'm waiting on this week. What about you?
Happy reading!

Spotted! The Body Finder #3 by Kimberly Derting

Hey guys!

Let's get started the week with some good bookish news, shall we? ;)


Kimberly Derting just released the title, cover and synopsis for the Body Finder #3, woo hoo! So here goes:



by 
Pub.: HarperCollins (April 17th 2012)

Violet kept her morbid ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her familyand her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. That is until forensic psychologist Sara Priest discovered Violet’s talent and invited her to use her gift to track down murderers. Now, as she works with an eclectic group of individuals—including mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe—it’s Violet’s job to help those who have been murdered by bringing their killers to justice. When Violet discovers the body of a college girl killed by “the girlfriend collector” she is determined to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new “relationship” and Violet may have caught his eye....
What do you guys think? I love the title, it really fits the series! And it gives me this feeling of finality and mystery and... It should be epic! <3 And I think the cover is gorgeous - just like the previous ones -




P.S. I really hope this series gets published in Romania as well! It seems like a Rao Books kind of series IMO. *hint hint* :))

Have a fab week and happy reading!
xoxo
