Waiting on Wednesday #008: Vanish & Supernaturally

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

Vanish (Firelight #2) by Sophie Jordan
Release Date: September 6, 2011

From Goodreads.com
To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.

Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?

Firelight was one of my most favorite YA novels of all time. Its intensity and unique (to me at least) storyline was so much fun that I sooooo cannot wait for the sequel. And look at that cover. Just gorgeous!

Supernaturally (Paranormalcy #2) by Kiersten White
Release Date: Aug. 30, 2011

From Goodreads.com
A lot has changed in the six months since Evie escaped from the International Paranormal Containment Agency with her shape-shifter boyfriend, Lend. She finally has the blissfully normal life she’s always dreamed of, including:
1) A real live high school
2) A perfectly ordinary after-school job
3) Her very own locker (and by the way, rusted metal is every bit as awesome as she imagined)

But Evie’s not-so-normal past keeps creeping up on her...and things get pretty complicated when you factor in:
1) A centuries-old, seriously decaying vampire stalker
2) A crazy faerie ex-boyfriend who is the perpetual bearer of really bad news
3) A major battle brewing between the faerie courts where the prize in question happens to be...Evie herself.

So much for normal.

Again, I read the first book, Paranormalcy, and I adored it. Evie's quirky and the setting/creatures that fill this book are so original and fun to learn about that the sequel can only be better. I'm looking forward to finding out what's happening in Easton High too. :D

  1. I cannot wait to read these two books, they are among my top 10 most anticipated books for 2011. Hey, can that topic be a suggestion for the weekly prompt?
