Waiting On Wednesday (24)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, my picks are a series, and technically one of them is already out, but I only heard about them today, so... I like rebelling in geeky ways, okay?

Darke Academy: Secret Lives by Gabriella Poole - Published August 6th, 2009

The Darke Academy is a school like no other. An elite establishment that moves to an exotic new city every term, its students are impossibly beautiful, sophisticated and rich. And the more new scholarship girl Cassie Bell learns about the Academy, the more curious she becomes. What sinister secrets are guarded by the Few -- the select group of students who keep outsiders away? Who is the dark stranger prowling the corridors at night? And what really happened a year earlier, when the last scholarship girl died in mysterious circumstances? One thing Cassie will discover is that a little knowledge may be a dangerous thing, but knowing too much can be deadly!

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want it: Well, one, it sounds really good, two, I don't like WoWing a sequel when I haven't read the first one. So... Anyways, like I said, it sounds really good.

And dun duh da da (it's a drumroll... right?) said sequel:

Darke Academy: Blood Ties by Gabriella Poole - To be published February 18th, 2009

The Darke Academy is a school like no other. An elite establishment that moves to an exotic new city every term, its students are impossibly beautiful, sophisticated and rich. This term the secretive Darke Academy has moved to New York, and Cassie Bell is no longer the innocent new girl. Now she is strong, determined, and hiding secrets of her own. For Cassie has been introduced to the world of the Few and is struggling to come to terms with her astonishing powers, a dangerous romance and the malevolent spirit inside her, demanding to be fed. When an old enemy returns, bent on revenge, Cassie is tested to the limit. Can she rescue her friends from a horrific fate, or will she end up destroying them to save herself? Wherever the Darke Academy goes, death is never far behind...

(Summary from amazon.)

Why I want it: 'Cause it looks good. I'm on my third WoW in a row here guys, give me a break.

Okay, that's it for me. What are you guys waiting on?
Peace and cookies,
Laina
