Waiting On Wednesday (9)

Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I have another theme, but I think this one is pretty easily guessed.

I was browsing in
Teens Read Too's upcoming release calander and I found my first pick.

The Vampire Is Just Not That Into You by Vlad Mezrich

Summary from

Are you in love with a vampire? Are you worried that you might not be his (blood) type? Do you wonder whether that cold stare means he isn’t interested . . . or if it’s because he’s been dead for three centuries (nothing personal)? Have you tried to coax him out of his crypt with a flash of your neck or a near-death situation that requires him to save you at the very last possible moment? Have you ever considered what it will be like to introduce him to your mother?

Even though your vampire’s skin is transfixingly translucent, he can still be very hard to read. Sometimes he’s simply holding back his true feelings, resisting the urge to bite you in the chance that one day you will truly love him. And other times . . . well, he’s just not that into you.

How can you tell? Undead dating specialist Vlad Mezrich has all the answers, utilizing quizzes, Top Ten lists, language analysis, real-life (and real-death) testimonials, and fancy charts to show you what you need to do in order to get your vampire and keep him forever. Once you go vamp, you never decamp – so let this eternally rewarding book show you the way to the vampire of your dreams.

It sounds cute and I love vampire books.

Then, while I was looking around, I found this:

Fade Out by Rachel Caine


Oh, my gosh, the cover is gorgeous!! I'd guess it's probably Eve, or a new character, or something, definitely not Claire, but I don't care I love it!!!! I love the US covers of these and don't have much fondness for the UK covers, personally. Sorry, rambling. Just... YAY!!!

(Love the necklace, too.)

Okay, so I'm off to hyperventilate from that.
Peace and cookies,


  1. I saw the first one and it does sound kind of amusing. I'd be interested to see what people thought of it.

    My pick is from a new author who is only 18. I know, crazy!


  2. Haaa, that first one sounds really funny!

  3. Jeez Laina you really know how to pick a book. The Vampires Just Not That Into You sounds funny. I had milk in my mouth when I read the summary. :(

  4. Haha, I quickly scanned by the cover for the first book on some random website a few weeks ago and I actually thought it was a cellphone ad or something. Duh... that's what you get for not reading the fine print.

    Nonetheless, it sounds really funny. I like how it's poking fun at the sudden lust for vampires. ;)

  5. You have an award over at my blog. (:

  6. You won some awards, Laina:

    Enjoy :)

  7. Lauren: Hey, Gordon Korman wrote his first book at 12. And it was published!

    Peaches: Thanks, I thought so, too. :)

    J. J.: LOL!! Sorry, did it come out your nose?

    Michelle: That's funny :P Although, I could see how you could think that if you didn't read the title. Or see that bat.

    Liyana and Sara: Awww, thanks! :) You guys rock! :)

  8. That first one looks hilarious! love the cover, too.

  9. Yes it did come out my nose. But that's why it's so funny.

  10. Sadako: I know, does it?

    J.J.: Lol, I once did that with Coke mixed with cough medicine (I was sick) and it burned.
