Waiting on Wednesday: Visions of Magic by Regan Hastings

We’re really excited because Regan Hastings will be visiting Vampire Book Club later this month. We can’t tell you who she is, but trust us when we say that you know the woman behind this pen name. (Yes, we’ll reveal the details when we’re allowed to!) Until then, we want you to check out the recently-released book trailer for Hastings’ “debut” Visions of Magic, which will hit shelves on Feb. 1. Fire....

Waiting on Wednesday: Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

Sure, we’ve already reviewed Angelfire. We think many of you will love it just for the stoic “hot boy with sword” factor. However, the protagonist Ellie does her own badass sword-wielding. If our review wasn’t enough to get you to consider adding Angelfire to your TBR for its February release, then maybe this video of author Courtney Allison Moulton talking wicked weapons will sway you. (Really, she busts...

Waiting on Wednesday: Defiance by Lili St. Crow

I could tell you about how great Lili St. Crow’s books are and how you will adore Dru Anderson, the main character in her YA Strange Angels series. Instead, I’m letting the book trailer for the fourth Strange Angels title Defiance, speak for me. Defiance comes out in April 2011. You can expect we’ll remind you in a few months.

Waiting on Wednesday: Entice by Carrie Jones

Waiting on Wednesday: Entice by Carrie Jones When I read Carrie Jone’s Need, I loved the sweet YA romance. I liked her take on pixies. The second book, Captivate, didn’t leave me as satisfied, but Entice (Need #3) looks like it will prove to be dramalicious. I like the idea of Zara being with the pixie king (rooting for the bad guy on this one), and am curious to see where things lead. Will she fall for him at least for a bit? (Please?) Entice will...

Waiting on Wednesday: Divergent by Veronica Roth

We have a really good feeling about Veronica Roth’s debut novel Divergent. The book doesn’t come out until May 2011, but by then we’re going to be aching for another good YA dystopian novel. (OK, and the cover is gorgeous.) We found this clip of Roth talking about the book and one of its morally bankrupt characters and found ourselves adding the book to the to-read list. Watch it, and see if you don’t...

Waiting on Wednesday: Matched by Ally Condie

I feel like I’ve been reading a number of books lately about fighting the system. Not a bad thing. Ally Condie’s Matched has a contained society with a government that directs your destiny. That’s great until one falls in love with the “wrong” person. Watch the trailer below and tell us, are you going to pick up Matched on Nov. 30? Also, how would you handle the government playing...

Waiting on Wednesday: The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith

Waiting on Wednesday: The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith We’re in the mood for something dark, where characters might think they’re losing their minds. We were trying to find kindred spirits to the Mortal Instruments and Hunger Games series, and we spotted The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith. It looks dark, magical and with a touch of maddening romance. It comes out next week on Nov. 9, and it is most certainly now on our to-read list. Watch the book trailer below...

Waiting on Wednesday: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

Waiting on Wednesday: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa We’ve learned of the existence of faeries with Meghan Chase in Julie Kagawa’s The Iron King (review). We fell in love with faerie boys (one in particular… we like bad boys) and found ourselves along with Meghan in The Iron Daughter (review). We have to know how this story ends. Things got ever more complicated The Iron Daughter, as they often do in the second books of trilogies. We’ll leave out the...

Waiting on Wednesday: Virals by Kathy Reichs

Waiting on Wednesday: Virals by Kathy Reichs We just finished Nightshade, so maybe we’re just all about weres right now. We spotted the details on Kathy Reichs’ new series opener Virals and added it to our to-read list immediately. Reichs is the author of the Bones series. Yes, that Bones — the basis for the TV show that stars Emily Deschanel and the post-Buffy David Boreanaz. We get the distinct impression we’ll get a bit of a YA take of the Bones...

Waiting on Wednesday: Ghost Town (Morganville Vampires #9) by Rachel Caine

I like Rachel Caine’s world-building and the way she loves to make things very difficult for her characters. That isn’t going to stop with the ninth book in her Morganville Vampires series Ghost Town. When I talked with Caine a few weeks ago she told me how excited she was for this release. She’s been releasing books for nearly 20 years, but this is her first hardcover. Pretty awesome. (And about time,...
