"Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose of this weekly event is to spotlight a soon-to-be-released book that you are very much anticipating. "Waiting On" Wednesday will also give bloggers an opportunity to share ideas for our TBR lists.

Title: The Sweetest Thing
Author: Christina Mandelski
Publisher: EgmontUSA, 352 Pages (May 10th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: Christina Mandelski's debut novel, about a young teen juggling first love, a cake-decorating business, her dad's reality TV show, and a search for her missing mother.

Title: After Midnight (Youngbloods, #1)
Author: Lynn Viehl
Publisher: Flux, 336 Pages (May 8th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, The Book Depository

Synopsis: A Suspenseful New Series Featuring Vampires and Forbidden Love. Sophomore Catlyn Youngblood is used to the nomadic existence she and her two older brothers have shared since the death of their parents. When they settle down for good in the sleepy backwoods town of Lost Lake, Florida, Cat thinks they might finally fit in. Instead, they're shunned by the locals.

While riding her horse late one night, Cat meets an enigmatic and handsome boy named Jesse Raven. Even more strange than her overpowering attraction to him is Jesse's apparent aversion to the sun. As their attraction intensifies, long-kept secrets come to light. Cat learns that the Ravens are a centuries-old vampire clan . . . and worse still, that she and her brothers are descendents of Abraham Van Helsing, the world-famous vampire hunter. Mortal enemies by blood, the two families do all they can to keep them apart. But Cat and Jesse will risk everything to be together—including death.

Again, two very different books for this weeks WoW. The Sweetest Thing - first love, cake decorating, reality TV show and searching for her missing mother... Sounds great! Can't wait! After Midnight... while this isn't a favorite cover, the synopsis does sound like anyone who still loves a good vampire story - like myself - will be excited for this first in a new series. Do either of these sound good to you?

  1. The sweetest thing doesnt sound like my type of book. But After Midnight I havent heard of and sounds like a winner to me. I like the synopsis and I like that its about the vampire hunters and the kids being descendents of Van Helsing. Nice twist to the vampire genre.

    Here is my Wow my Seeing Night Reviews

  2. I have all of Lynn Viehl's adult Darkyn series have read them yet though. Great picks!

    My WOW

    ~Jessica@a GREAT read

  6. I agree with you on the After Midnight cover. Especially since Teen books can (and do) do much better than that. I'm looking forward to it because I enjoyed Viehl's adult vampire books.

  7. Really want to read After Midnight. It sounds like a modern Romeo and Juliet - and Romeo and Juliet is my favourite Shakespeare play!
    Awesome WOW books!
