Waiting on Wednesday: Eighteen Kisses + The Immortal Rules

After a long time, I’m doing a Waiting on Wednesday post! I have two great books for you guys today. These are two books written by my favorite authors ever. I present:

Eighteen Kisses by Laura Jane Cassidy
Publication Date: May 2, 2012
Published by: Puffin Ireland/UK

Jacki King loves being back in Dublin - she's enjoying the music scene and interning at Electric magazine. She still has flashbacks to the murder case she solved the year before, though her friends, especially Nick, keep her distracted.

Until, one day, Jacki's frightening nightmares begin again. And when the police contact her about a local missing girl, she knows the two are connected.

Two years before, on her eighteenth birthday, Kayla Edwards disappeared.

No body has ever been found.

But now Kayla is communicating with Jacki from beyond the grave - and she won't stop until the truth is revealed . . .

Why I Chose This:

I enjoyed Angel Kiss so much! I loved the mystery side, the contemporary side and the music side of the novel. It was really easy to lose myself in the story. I’m a fan of Laura and of course, I’m looking forward to her next novel!

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa
Publication Date: April 24, 2012
Published by: Harlequin Teen

You will kill. The only question is when.

In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.

Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire.

Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.

Why I Chose This:

I’m a big fan of The Iron Fey series. In fact, I just bought my copy of The Iron Knight and I’m currently obsessing over it. I’m savoring every line because I want to make this last novel last as long as I could in my mind. Julie Kagawa is my favorite fantasy author and of course, I’ll be one of the first people to buy this new book of hers. It sounds amazing!

What do you think? Will you be adding these to your wishlist, willing to read these?


  1. I'm in for both. I've only read the first of the Iron Fey series so far - but I want to read the rest of it too.

  2. Thanks for stopping by the Paperback Princesses. Just returning the favour. I love the sound of the new Julie Kagawa - it will definitely go on my TBR list.

  3. I so cant wait for Julie's new series!!

  4. Oooh I didn't realise Angel Kiss had a sequel! For some reason I kept thinking it was a standalone. Awesome! I'm an addict for MORE books, must read Angel Kiss soon :D

    I am so so so excited for The Immortal Rules! It sounds AMAZING. I don't know whether to read the chapter excerpt in the back of TIK or not.... yes, beacuse it will make me more excited. No, because the wait will drive me even more insane :P

  5. IMMORTAL RULES!!! I WANT! Eighteen kisses sounds a little too scary for my taste!

    Feel free to check out my WOW

  6. OMG!!! I just can't wait for The Immortal Rules! The synopsis is sooo inviting! ohh my can it be 2012 already? The world can't end without reading this!
