Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's a weekly meme to post about books that you can't wait to come out in book stores.


Strange Fate by L.J. Smith (Night World series No. 4)

Sixteen-year-old Sarah Strange finds life a mass of contradictions. She’s an ordinary-looking girl, and yet two of the most popular guys at school form her circle of friends. Kierlan Drache and Mal Harman, who are as unalike as any two people can be. That ought to make her happy, but recently she’s been having romantic feelings about each of them—and has seen two silver cords: one reaching from her to Kierlan, and one from her to Mal. What’s going on? In addition, every night she dreams of a future where dragons and vampires rule the world, and of a brave child called Crispy. For a girl who hasn’t even heard of the Night World yet, Sarah has a lot to handle! Even worse, the Apocalypse has finally come—and even the Wild Powers see only one way to stop it. This is an epic volume, which stars all the most beloved Night Worlders from the other books. Be prepared, though, because seven go on a mission to save the world . . . and only two come back.

Another Faust by Daniel & Dina Nayeri
One night, in cities all across Europe, five children vanish — only to appear, years later, at an exclusive New York party with a strange and elegant governess. Rumor and mystery follow the Faust teenagers to the city’s most prestigious high school, where they soar to suspicious heights with the help of their benefactor’s extraordinary "gifts." But as the students claw their way up — reading minds, erasing scenes, stopping time, stealing power, seducing with artificial beauty — they start to suffer the sideeffects of their own addictions. And as they make further deals with the devil, they uncover secrets more shocking than their most unforgivable sins. At once chilling and wickedly satirical, this contemporary reimagining of the Faustian bargain is a compelling tale of ambition, consequences, and ultimate redemption.
This book sounds SO fantastic. I don't even think I can explain why I want it. Everything about it just sounds so amazong. And the cover! I LOVE IT.

  1. What she has two! soul mates. This sounds like the first story in all the volumes Secret Vampire and LJ's Secret Circle combined. Plus it has all the previous characters so it has to be good. My WoW: http://theobsessivereader-rachel.blogspot.com/2009/08/waiting-on-wensday.html

  2. Marissa!!!!!!! Well I started reading the first book, and then just stopped. I didn't know it was a lot of stories in a book, and I don't think this is my style of reading...

  3. I can't wait for Another Faust as well

  4. Anohter Faust looks great! Hopefully, the release date of it will come soon. :)

  5. I have been waiting for strange fate since 1997.


Don't be shy! We love to hear from you!
