Waiting on Wednesday...

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

So this week I've got a book by a very popular YA author that I'm waiting for, and I hear that it will be a series as well!!!!

The book: Bloodlines - Ricelle Mead

From Goodreads:  "Bloodlines is a spin off of the series "Vampire Academy." It centers around Sydney, a human alchemist. Jill, a Moroi Vampire will also have a key role. The male lead will be a love interest from Vampire Academy.

Bloodlines takes place at a high school in California. We're still in the same universe and with the same rules as Vampire Academy."

From the Official Richelle Mead Website:  "Richelle Mead has graduated from Vampire Academy, her popular YA series that wrapped up in December with the release of its sixth and final book, and now she’s moving onto new territory. Well, somewhat new: Bloodlines will be a spin-off of VA, moving the previously tertiary character Sydney, a human alchemist, from the sidelines to the forefront. It will also be set in a sunny Californian high school instead of that rigid, preppy-bloodsucker academy, which I imagine will be like transferring from the Undead Poets Society to Bayside High. Check out the finalized cover for the first book of the series—that’s Sydney with the filigreed face, by the way—and watch a video after the jump of Mead talking about how it will differ from Vampire Academy. Bloodlines is set to hit shelves on August 23."

I can't wait for this one to hit stores in South Africa... I am a huge fan of Vampire Academy and I'm looking forward to this one!!!

What is your waiting on Wednesday?
