Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started at Breaking the Spine bookblog, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I usually like to list a few reasons why this book made the top of my 'wish list', but it's purely up to you!
Here's my pick for this week:

Title: Dark Visions

Author: L.J. Smith

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing Pub. Date: September 08, 2009 ISBN-13: 9781416989561 Genre: YA, Fantasy, Magic, Vampires

Series: Dark Visions Series

Summary (B&N):


Kaitlyn Fairchild has always felt like an outsider in her small hometown. Her haunting eyes and prophetic drawings have earned her a reputation as a witch. But Kait's not a witch: She's a psychic. Tired of being shunned, Kait accepts an invitation to attend the Zetes Institute, where she can have a fresh start and study with other psychic teens.

Learning to hone her abilities with four other gifted students, Kait discovers the intensity of her power — and the joy of having true friends. But those friendships quickly become complicated when Kait finds herself torn between two irresistible guys. Rob is kind and athletic, and heals people with his good energy. Gabriel is aggressive and mysterious, a telepath concealing his true nature as a psychic vampire, feeding off of others' life energy. Together, Rob and Gabriel's opposing forces threaten the group's stability.

Then one of the experiments traps the five teens in a psychic link. A link that threatens their sanity and their lives. And Kaitlyn must decide whom to trust...and whom to love.


I'm a huge fan of Smith's novels, I've read them all and enjoyed them a lot, so it's no wonder that I'm anxious to get my hands on this one! :D She's a wonderful author, and don't let the fact that the books are 'YA' fool you-- anyone who loves fantasy, magic, vampires, and romance will love her work!


Until Next Time, The Book Queen

I love LJ Smith and this was one of my favorite series from her. I sold my old copies so debating buying the new editions.
