Waiting On Wednesday #1

Blood Magic byTessa Gratton
Publishing Date: May 24, 2011
This page-turning debut novel will entice fans who like their paranormal romances dark and disturbing. It's a natural next-read for fans of Stephanie Meyer, Carrie Jones, and Becca Fitzpatrick. But instead of mythical creatures, blood magic has everything to do with primal human desires like power, wealth, and immortality. Everywhere Silla Kennicott turns she sees blood. She can't stop thinking about her parents alleged murder-suicide. She is consumed by a book filled with spells that arrives mysteriously in the mail. The spells share one common ingredient: blood, and Silla is more than willing to cast a few. What's a little spilled blood if she can uncover the truth? And then there's Nick—the new guy at school who makes her pulse race. He has a few secrets of his own and is all too familiar with the lure of blood magic. Drawn together by a combination of fate and chemistry, Silla and Nick must find out who else in their small Missouri town knows their secret and will do anything to take the book and magic from Silla.(via goodreads)

OMG isn't this book so tempting to read? I like the idea of dark and disturbing kinda plot, secrets and the romance of Silla and Nick. I think its going to be a great paranormal story. That's why I cant wait to get hold of this book! And don't forget the cover... isn't it gorgeous? i mean red and black are simply just gorgeous. It's like wearing a black dress with your red pump heels, very appealing! I hope that the story is as good as the cover that would be really really off the hook.

Wildcat fireflies by Amber Kizer
Publishing Date: July 2011

Meridian Sozu is a Fenestra—the half-human, half-angel link between the living and the dead. She has the dark responsibility of helping souls transition safely into the afterlife. If people die without the help of a Fenestra, their souls are left vulnerable to be stolen by the Aternocti, a dark band of forces who disrupt the balance of good and evil in the world and cause chaos. 
Having recently lost her beloved Auntie—the woman who showed her what it meant to be a Fenestra—Meridian has hit the road with Tens, her love and sworn protector, in hopes of finding another Fenestra. Their search leads them to Indiana, where Juliet, a responsible and loving teenager, works tirelessly in the nursing home where she and several other foster kids are housed. Surrounded by death, Juliet struggles to make a loving home for the younger kids, and to protect them from the violent whims of their foster mother. But she is struggling against forces she can't understand . . . and even as she feels a pull toward the dying, their sickness seems to infect her, weighing her down. . . .
Will Meri and Tens find Juliet in time to save her from a life of misery and illness? And will Meri and Tens' own romance weather the storms of new discoveries?

This Series is one of my top favourite books. Why? Because its compelling plot and its sooo romantic scenes of Meridian and her love interest, her protector Tens. For me, its an emotional epic fantasy ever. If you have read Meridan, you'll sure love this one. It left me wanting more of the first book that's why I'm going to watch out for it! I reckon you should too!
