"Waiting On" Wednesday: April 27 Edition

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry #3)
Author: Simone Elkeles
Publication Date: August 16, 2011
Publisher: Walker Books for Young Readers

Synopsis (courtesy of Goodreads):

Luis Fuentes is a good boy who doesn't live with the angst that his big brothers, Alex and Carlos, have always lived with. Luis is smart, funny, and has big dreams of becoming an astronaut. But when he falls for the wrong girl, Luis enters a dark world he's never known, and just when he thinks he's got life all figured out, learns some disturbing news about his family that destroys his positive outlook on life. Will that Fuentes bad boy streak come out with a vengeance and lure Luis to live on the edge like his new girlfriend and his own father?
Continuing all the steamy romance of the first two books, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Simone Elkeles gives fans one more satisfying taste of the irresistible Fuentes boys.

 I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, and am eagerly awaiting this third book. Though, seriously, it's really not for "young readers", but rather older young adults because of the sexual/explicit content matter. :)

Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse #11)
Author: Charlaine Harris
Publication Date: May 3, 2011
Publisher: Ace Books

Synopsis (courtesy of Goodreads):

"With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit - and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can't 'read' vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his 'child' Pam well - and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human - and that there is a new Queen on the board . . . "

 MORE ERIC! Need I say more? I am totally psyched for the newest book to come out. I have been a fan since before TrueBlood and even before the series itself got popular. I got into them when Ms. Harris was just releasing book #5 (Dead as a Doornail). I've had the great pleasure of meeting her and getting my 1-7 books signed by her at my local Borders, and each one has its own unique little message. Even more awesome:: Charlaine is coming to a neighboring town and will be at an Anderson's Bookshop event on May 5th - where, for a small fee, I get a copy of the new book, get it signed and get to see her/hang out with her again. I hope there will be a Q&A part. If so, is there any questions anyone is dying to ask, that I could bring with me and try to ask your question?  

Totally excited! *gleeeeeeee*
