Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted at Breaking the Spine. Here are the upcoming releases that I'm not-so-patiently waiting for!

The Golden Lily
By: Richelle Mead

Release Date: 6/19/12

Synopsis from goodreads.com:
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?

By: Charlaine Harris

Release Date: 05/01/12

Synopsis from goodreads.com:
With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank. 

Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

What books are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. Oh I can't wait for Bloodlines!!!!! I looooed the first one so much. I'm not so much into the Sookie Books anymore, although I loved the first ones... The story felt dragged out ..maybe I'm going to read the rest ones once the last one is finally out.

  2. These both sound tempting...I keep meaning to read something by Charlaine Harris.

    Here's MY WOW POST -

  3. You had me at Sydney! I loved the first Bloodlines book soo much! Great picks :)

  4. Eeeeeeep! Oh my gosh, I'm so excited for The Golden Lily that it's probably not that healthy!! x) LOL I think I liked Bloodlines better than VA, so of course I'm pumped for this one! And that other book looks really cool too! :)

  5. I'm just finishing up Bloodlines and am excited that this is coming out!
