Waiting on Wednesday (19)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

  Shade (Shade, #1) by Jeri Smith-Ready
Expected publication:  May 4th 2010
Simon Pulse




Synopsis(from Goodreads):
Love ties them together. Death can't tear them apart. Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.

Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone.

Well, sort of.

Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan’s violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.

It doesn't help that Aura’s new friend Zachary is so understanding—and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.

As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart…and clues to the secret of the Shift.

I know it's been a while since this one came out but I haven't had the chance to read it yet. I find this one very interesting and I would love to read it soon. If any of you have reviews of the book feel free to leave me links of them along with your WOW link.

You can buy the book from Amazon:

Blood Type by Melissa Luznicky Garrett
 Publication:  January 1st 2012
Createspace Independent Publishing Platform



Synopsis(from Goodreads):
Since getting attacked by a vampire, I didn’t believe in beginnings. Only endings. Every person born to this world comes with an expiration date, but I had never considered mine. At least not until I met John.

Now the end was all I ever thought about. I woke up every morning wondering if that day would be my last. Venom pulsed in my veins and seeped into my bones, infecting all my vital organs and changing me from the inside out. Slowly killing me.
But I’d welcome death in the end, if only because the alternative was even more frightening.

Popular girl Blake Ehlert has it all: a prime spot on the cheerleading squad, a jock boyfriend who’s strong and sensitive, and the winning vote for Homecoming Queen two years in a row. But when she strikes up a conversation with loner John Kelly, her entire world starts to crumble.

John Kelly is a vampire—what’s known to his kind as a Compeller. It’s his job to recruit human Donors with a particular blood type.

And Blake is his next target.

This one has been already released but I just saw it today and I really liked it. I will find a way to read it soon.

    1. Thanks for visiting Carina. I'm a lot jealous of you for having the Shade books. I want to read them all but unfortunately I don't even think they are translated in my country(and there goes my chance of buying them from here).
