Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that occurs here; we bloggers post about the books that we'd really like to read now :).

I have two this week :).

Illusions by Aprilynne Pike
Release Date: May 3, 2011

"I don't do patrols, I don't go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life. I'll keep you safe," Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. "Or die trying."

Laurel hasn't seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.

But just as life returns to normal, Laurel realizes that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail.

Die for Me (Revenants #1) by Amy Plum
Release Date: May 10, 2011

In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life--and memories--behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant--an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.

In this incandescent debut, newcomer Amy Plum has created a powerful paranormal mythology with immortal revenants. The Paris setting comes enchantingly alive as a relentless struggle between good and evil takes place in its streets. Rich with romance, atmosphere, and thrills, Die for Me will leave readers breathlessly awaiting its sequel.


I read an interview of Amy Plum about two days ago, and it got me really excited for Die for Me.  But of course I was kind of already ensnared by that gorgeous cover and the revenants (never heard of 'em but they sound interesting :D).  [And Paris :D!]

AND I love the Wings series.  I've gobbled up the excerpts Pike has posted on her blog.  So excited!  (Except am I the only one who doesn't like how they are "redoing" the covers?)

What're you waiting on this wednesday?

  8. Hi, Christina. Thanks for stopping by. To answer your question, I'm sorry to say that I haven't read The Mortal Instruments series yet. I am a recent Cassandra Clare convert. LOL. I do have the first three books ready to go on my Nook, though, and can't wait to read them. :)

  10. I hate it when they start redoing covers in the middle of a series. Example? Artemis Fowl.
