Waiting on Wednesday (9) or "An Abundance of '!'"
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
There is no official cover for this particular book yet, so I've taken the liberty of making my own. She's not smiling, because she's unsure and has a lot of difficult decisions to make in book six.
Disclaimer: I'm very sorry, but I'm not available for any sort of cover design for your book, nor can I design anything for your website. My design services are highly sought after, and I just don't have that kind of time. Thank you for your understanding.
Anyway. I think I love this series more than that Vampire Academy series. THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT. It's not a YA novel by any means, due to the fact that Georgina is a succubus. Succubi happen to drain people of life via sexytimes. I don't think a YA novel can have this premise and still by YA. If you pull this off, please let me know because I'd like to see it!
I never thought I'd love this series as much as I do. I figured it'd be all a-ravin' and a-rompin' and a-sinnin'. Get this though: GEORGINA HAS A HEART! She has a cat that she loves and cares for! She doesn't enjoy her succubus status! All she really wants is a yummy introverted author who wears screen tees and hates coffee! Who has messy hair! And she wants to do the right thing! This is a deep, emotional series that has stolen my heart and I cannot believe Mead is making us wait until frickin' August 30 of 2011 when there hasn't been a book released since March 2010! FRICK!
I know the covers are cheesy (save for mine... I think this could be my new calling?)
I know that the idea of a succubus with a heart is strange (as is most paranormal, in general?)
But I'm serious, you guys. This is a fabulously good series. I'd highly recommend getting it on your e-reader, if you don't want to be seen in public with these hardcore cheese-tastic covers. (btw, isn't that Lacey from Rock of Love on THIS cover? And I've never understood the red hair, since G is a light brunette.) Perhaps you want to pick up the mass-market paperback, which is significantly less embarassing.
Whatever you do, just read these!
