WOW is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine
Release: October 2011
Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he's pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren't enough, now he's depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool. But as much as Hartley wouldn't mind seeing him squirm, she knows he's innocent, and she's the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school's resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer's next victim.
YA murder mystery? YAY! And as a side note, those intense eyes are kind of freaking me out ;)
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer
Release: July 2011
This thrilling sequel to the much-talked-about Nightshade begins just where it ended.Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemy, and she's certain her days are numbered.
But then the Searchers make her an offer,one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack and the man she left behind. Is Ren worth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.
Despite my immediate dislike of this cover (and the new paperback - both of which make me think "Adult Urban Fantasy"), I'm still really looking forward to this book.
Besides, it's not the cover that matters - it's the wonderful story that the author creates beneath the cover! I loved Nightshade so much, and wish Wolfsbane was out now! I need to know what happens next!!
What are you waiting on this week?
