Waiting on Wednesday (56)

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

My picks for this week are:

Throat by R. A. Nelson - To be released January 25th, 201

Seventeen-year-old Emma feels cursed by her epilepsy—until the lost night. She's shocked to wake up in the hospital one morning, weak from blood loss. When her memories begin to return, she pieces together that it was a man—a monster—who attacked her: a vampire named Wirtz. And it was her very condition that saved her: a grand mal seizure interrupted Wirtz and left Emma with all the amazing powers of a vampire—heightened senses, rapid speed—but no need to drink blood. Is Emma now a half-vampire girl? One thing soon becomes clear: the vampire Wirtz is fierce and merciless, feared even by his own kind, and won't leave a job undone.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I love vampire novels, and this one sounds very original, plus the author is really nice and totally talked to me on Twitter.

Famous by Todd Strasser - To be released January 15th, 2011

All Jamie Gordon wants to do is to take pictures of celebrities...and maybe to become famous herself. She's only fourteen, but already her pictures are sought after by fanzines and websites, and she's invited to all the best parties. And now she has the chance of a lifetime. She has been invited to spend a week with Willow Twine, taking pictures of the teen superstar's new chaste life. But when Jamie gets her hands on some sensational shots of Willow, she's suddenly in over her head. The pictures could make her career...and destroy Willow's. Everybody seems to want to get their hands on the photos, and Jamie has to decide what she really wants...and what she's willing to pay to get it.

Why I want this: I love Todd Strasser and this one sounds really cute. Plus the cover is adorable!

Okay, that's everything for this week.

Peace and cookies,
Laina

  1. Whoa! I am now very curious about Throat. I wonder if there will be a love story like there always is with vamps.
