Waiting on Wednesday (2)

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

This week, I'm waiting on:


Nightshade by Andrew Cremer
Releases October 19, 2010
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything—including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

Why I'm waiting on Nightshade: 
The main reason is that I've heard so many great things about this novel and sort of fell into the hype. I have an affinity for strong female protagonists, and that's constantly how Calla is depicted in reviews and such, so I'm holding on to the hope that I'll love this novel as so many other bloggers did. And plus, look at that cover! Gorgeous! :)

What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? :)

I hear that this is a great love triangle. Plus, the promotion I've seen on the blogs (mystery boxes, videos) out there are so intriguing. Someone VERY smart works in that marketing dept. Good pick!

YES! I am just droooooooling over this one. I have the countdown clock up on my blog, so I actually think about waiting for this book every day haha. This is such a good series. Nick pick :)

Check out mine here!

I'm reading Nightshade right now and loving every word. Great pick!

My WoW

Literature for Lunch said...

YES! Luckily, my school had a copy that they were not going to put in the library, and I got to have it! You will not be disappointed. It is so fast paced and really draws you in. I loved the secondary characters.

Great choice!! The only bad thing about this book is the wait till the next one :(

Page (One Book At A Time) said...

This was a fantastic book. It seems strange that I read it so long ago... I'm thinking about buying it anyway even though I rarely reread books.

jackie b central texas said...

I see on your book montage you also have favorited Eragon, Tolkeins works, and other fantasy reads.. They are some of my faves too! You should love this book as from everything written in reviews it is going to be a wonderful read! Kristina followed you back from my dual post WWW and WoW and am a new blog follower as well, need some more YA in my diet! LOL

jackie >_<

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Bri Meets Books said...

I left this one in Florida when I moved! I'm sad about that and my parents have yet to locate it. So I'm waiting on it too.

BTW, you have an adorable book blog title.

Emily said...

Hi! I'm following you now, too! Looks like we have a lot of books in common. I think Nightshade sounds great. Great pick!

Katie said...

Oh I so agree about the cover, it's so pretty. :) I hope you enjoy it when you get it :)

sablelexi said...

Sometimes its nice to see a WoW for a book that's coming out soon, cause it helps dampen the pain from having to wait months for the rest. I also would like to read this one.

Check Out what I’m waiting for here.
