Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on ...
Shade
by Jeri Smith-Ready
Released: May 04, 2010

From Baker and Taylor:
"Sixteen-year-old Aura of Baltimore, Maryland, reluctantly works at her aunt's law firm helping ghosts with wrongful death cases file suits in hopes of moving on, but it becomes personal when her boyfriend, a promising musician, dies and persistently haunts her."

I've been excited about this one since I first saw the cover for it - just so pretty! I think it's going to be a great ghost story. Here's hoping I get it the day it comes out! :)

Claire de Lune
by Christine Johnson
Released: May 18, 2010

From Baker and Taylor:

"Astonished to discover she is the latest in a line of female werewolves, 16-year-old Claire hides her lupine identity from her boyfriend, whose father is a werewolf hunter, and resolves to help her pack defeat a human-killing rogue werewolf."

You know... I've read a lot of the urban fantasy stuff lately, but I'm still excited to get my hands on this one. There's something very interesting about the idea of a werewolf hunter. Vampire hunters, sure... but I don't think I've read about werewolf hunters. So it might be pretty interesting. :)

Shade sounds really interesting, especially the idea of ghosts filing law suits. I like the cover too.

Claire de Lune was a pretty good werewolf novel. I liked that it was about a girl werewolf because with few exceptions (like Blood and Chocolate) it is usually guys who are werewolves.

I am such a sucker for werewolf/shapeshifter stories. I heart them so much. So (of course) I'm looking forward to Claire de Lune!

Both look like good YA picks. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

Book Sake said...

Yes, yes, yes, I want both of these as well!

My pick is at BookSake.

I'm waiting on both of them as well!

I've been hearing so much about these two books that I'm shocked to hear that neither of them is actually released yet. They both look great!

Check out my WoW here!
