Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm still new at this, but please feel free to have a look around and don't forget to enter my Halloween Giveaway. Also, if you are interested, tomorrow I shall be posting a review of the first the Gaurdains of Ga'Hoole books by Kathryn Lasky, and in the next few days I'll also be posting a review of Time Stranger Kyoko and Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan.
Now on to what you are all here for, this weeks Waiting on Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where book bloggers share what books they can't wait to come out.
This week my selecion is "The Gathering" by Kelley Armstrong. This is going to be the first book in her second YA series "Darkness Rising", and since I love her adult series (Women of the Otherworld), and loved her YA series (Darkest Powers) even more (so much so that I'm giving away the first book this month so that I may share that love).
Here is what Amazon has to say about this book:
Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can't find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students — for every grade from kindergarten to twelve. Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won't go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret — and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark.
The Current release date for this book is April 12, 2011.
