Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since I just finished reading and reviewing Shannon Delany's "13 to Life" I thought that it was only appropriate that I add the second book in the series to my wishlist! 

Title: "Vesper"
Author: Jeff Sampson
Release Date: January 25th, 2010

"Emily Webb is a geek. And she’s happy that way. Content hiding under hoodies and curling up to watch old horror flicks, she’s never been the kind of girl who sneaks out for midnight parties. And she’s definitely not the kind of girl who starts fights or flirts with other girls’ boyfriends. Until one night Emily finds herself doing exactly that . . . the same night one of her classmates—also named Emily—is found mysteriously murdered.

The thing is, Emily doesn’t know why she’s doing any of this. By day, she’s the same old boring Emily, but by night, she turns into a thrill seeker. With every nightfall, Emily gets wilder until it’s no longer just her personality that changes. Her body can do things it never could before: Emily is now strong, fast, and utterly fearless. And soon Emily realizes that she’s not just coming out of her shell . . . there’s something much bigger going on. Is she bewitched by the soul of the other, murdered Emily? Or is Emily Webb becoming something else entirely—something not human?

As Emily hunts for answers, she finds out that she’s not the only one this is happening to—some of her classmates are changing as well. Who is turning these teens into monsters—and how many people will they kill to get what they want?"

PS. Don't forget to check out MY FANTABULOUS FIRST GIVEAWAY!


  1. Ooh I heard about this one. Although I haven't decided if I want to read it yet. Might wait for some reviews.

    Here's my WoW

  2. Vesper is on my wishlist, too. I've read a few good reviews, but really it's the cover and plot that have sucked me in. Nice pick!

  3. Looks good. I'll have to think about this one. :)

  4. Love the sound of this one, and I added this to my pile a few weeks ago. Can't wait! :)

  5. Ooo, Vesper is such a great title. I wonder what it means.

    Avery, just to let you know, I opened up my contest to Canada! Don't know why I didn't do that from the start. Gotta look out for my Canadian book friends!

  6. While I dictionary-ed "vesper" and all of the definitions pertained to the night... So I suppose that that would make sense, considering you know, something happens to her at night... ;)

    And I gotta agree, the cover really drew me in. I am just really excited to read a YA paranormal written by a male- I feel like I haven't really read any by males... Hmmmm... I will have to check into this and see if it is so.

  7. This cover is gorgeous! and it also sounds like a great book =D Nice choice!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!

Though I appreciate awards I have decided to make my blog an "award-free zone". Unfortunately I do not have the time to hold up my end of award-giving. But again, I appreciate you thinking of me!
