"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication can't-wait-to-read selections is:
by Heather Swain
A hilarious take on the paranormal trend--Twilight meets The Breakfast Club!
When former good girl turned rebel Josie Griffin gets busted for what was in her mind perfectly acceptable revenge on her cheating dog of a boyfriend, she lands herself in anger management therapy. It could be worse: it could be juvvie, or she could be a zombie cheerleader like the rest of her former friends. But there's something strange about therapy--these are not normal kids. There's the wannabe ladies man with a weird accent, Johann; the blindingly gorgeous Helios; Avis with his wild dreads; and Tarren, the sprite of a girl with a wicked temper. And all of them keep talking about "powers." Josie knows that has to be impossible, but strange things start happening, and nothing weird ever happens in Indiana. After all, there're no such things as vampires, werewolves, Greek gods, or fairies . . . right?
As an author who is soon releasing a Paranormal Romance, one of the things I've learnt in life is not to take myself too seriously. So with it's quirky cover and light hearted blurb, Josie Griffin Is Not A Vampire immediately grabbed my attention. This looks like it should be a fun read and depending on how tongue in cheek Ms. Swain decides to go, it could have a shot at making me laugh. I read a lot of passionate dramatic stuff, so the occasional fun book can serve as a welcome reprieve. Plus, I love books where different myths and legends combine since it opens a lot of interpretation if an author wants to 'go there'.
So, what are you looking forward to this week? Leave a link and I'll drop by and check it out. :)
