Waiting On Wednesday (19)

As always, Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

So I might be going with a bit of a theme here this week. Depending on what the second book turns out to be about.

First up is:

My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey - Release date January 4th, 2010

The Blakes are rather different to your usual neighbours. They are vampires and some of the members of the family date back to the twelfth century. One of the children, Solange, is the only born female vampire known and, as such, she poses a direct threat to the vampire queen. Her best friend Lucy is human, and when Solange is kidnapped Lucy and Solange's brother, Nicholas, set out to save her. Lucy soon discovers that she would like to be more than just friends with Nicholas. But how does one go about dating a vampire? Meanwhile, Solange finds an unlikely ally in Kieran, a vampire slayer on the hunt for his father's killer.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: .... You need to ask? Seriously?

Token of Darkness by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes - Release date February 9th, 2010

Cooper Blake has everything going for him—until he wakes from a car accident with his football career in ruins and a mysterious, attractive girl by his side. Cooper doesn’t know how Samantha got there or why he can see her; all he knows is that she’s a ghost, and the shadows that surround her seem intent on destroying her.

No one from Cooper’s old life would understand what he can barely grasp himself. . . . But Delilah, the captain of the cheerleading squad, has secrets of her own, like her ability to see beyond the physical world, and her tangled history with Brent, a loner from a neighboring school who can hear strangers’ most intimate thoughts. Delilah and Brent know that Cooper is in more trouble than he realizes, and that Samantha may not be as innocent as she has led Cooper to believe. But the only way to figure out where Samantha came from will put them all in more danger than they ever dreamed possible.

(Summary from goodreads.)


Why I want this: I love Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' writing. I read Demon in My View twice. In a row. I read it one day and then the next morning, I read it again because it was so good. They're awesome books.

So, did you guess my sorta-kinda theme?
Peace and cookies,
