Waiting on Wednesday 10.5.11

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine which welcomes books that we are anxiously waiting for.

Illuminate by

Haven Terra is a brainy, shy high school outcast. But everything begins to change when she turns sixteen. Along with her best friend Dante and their quiet and brilliant classmate Lance, she is awarded a prestigious internship in the big city— Chicago—and is sent to live and work at a swanky and stylish hotel under the watchful eyes of a group of gorgeous and shockingly young-looking strangers: powerful and alluring hotel owner Aurelia Brown; her second-in-command, the dashing Lucian Grove; and their stunning but aloof staff of glamazons called The Outfit.

As Haven begins falling for Lucian, she discovers that these beautiful people are not quite what they seem. With the help of a mysterious book, she uncovers a network of secret passageways from the hotel’s jazz-age past that leads her to the heart of the evil agenda of Aurelia and company: they’re in the business of buying souls. Will they succeed in wooing Haven to join them in their recruitment efforts, or will she be able to thwart this devilish set’s plans to take the souls of her classmates on prom night at the hotel?

Oldsoul by Dan Haring

Jason Gouvas doesn’t want to believe he has special abilities or that
humanity’s fate rests on his shoulders, but the dead girl in his mind
can be quite persuasive.

  1. Illuminate sounds pretty good but I don't like in a lot of YA fiction the book leads up to a big clash in prom night, it's like saying prom is the only things eventful in a teenagers life.

    My WOW

  2. I agree. Old Souls sounds good. Unusual too. Illuminate sounds good too but I'm not gonna raise my hopes for that one.

  3. Thank you so much for including Oldsoul! I hope you enjoy it if you get a chance to read it :)
