Waiting on Wednesday: Spellcaster (Spellbound Series, Book 2) by Cara Lynn Shultz

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this week is:


Here’s the GoodReads Blurb:

Finding your eternal soulmate – easy.

Stopping a true-love-hungry evil – not so much…

After breaking a centuries-old romantic curse, Emma Connor is (almost) glad to get back to normal problems. Although…it’s not easy dealing with the jealous cliques and gossip that rule her exclusive Upper East Side prep, even for a sixteen-year-old newbie witch. Having the most-wanted boy in school as her eternal soul mate sure helps ease the pain-especially since wealthy, rocker-hot Brendan Salinger is very good at staying irresistibly close….

But something dark and hungry is using Emma and Brendan’s deepest fears to reveal damaging secrets and destroy their trust in each other. And Emma’s crash course in über-spells may not be enough to keep them safe…or to stop an inhuman force bent on making their unsuspected power its own.


I really liked the first book in this series, Spellbound!  It had mystery, action, a super hot guy, and romance…what more do you need? This book has a release date of March 27, 2012.


Waiting on Wednesday: The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, Book 2) by Richelle Mead

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers tell what upcoming book releases they are not so patiently awaiting.



I absolutely love everything I have read by Richelle Mead.  The Vampire Academy series was fabulous, full of action and romance.  And its’ spinoff series, Bloodlines, did not disappoint.  In fact, I may have liked it better than Vampire Academy!  I love going through a long book series with the same cast of characters because it allows you to get to know them better than just having them in a stand alone book.

So, I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the Bloodlines series:


That is a really beautiful cover, isn’t it?!

Here’s the book description:

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age-old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her.

When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she’s supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she’s been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.

Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

I love Sydney and Adrian together…I was really brokenhearted for him and the whole ordeal he went through with Rose.

This book has an expected publication date of June 19, 2012.  It’s gonna be a great summer for reading!

Tell me what you’re waiting on!

Waiting on Wednesday: Destined by Aprilynne Pike (Laurel Series, Book 4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book blogger event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers post which upcoming books they are not-so-patiently awaiting.



The book I’m waiting to read should come as no surprise to those who’ve been reading my reviews…


Yes, I cannot wait for the next book in the Laurel series!!  This book will be the fourth and final one, and I’m hoping it will leave me with a satisfying conclusion.

From Goodreads:

Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare Winter faerie, the most powerful—and deadly—of all, and she is working with Klea to conquer and destroy Avalon. With Tamani, David, and Chelsea by her side, Laurel prepares for a fight she never thought she would have to face.

Filled with heart-pounding action, sweeping romance, and higher stakes at every turn, Destined is the series conclusion that readers have been clamoring for—with a twist that will leave them breathless.

This book has an expected publication date of May 1, 2012.
