Waiting on Wednesday - December 23

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

I just saw this one - I still have the fourth in the series to read, but this looks interesting.  I loved the series - it's easy and enjoyable reading so this background information should be a lot of fun.

Sorry no cover for this one.

Keys to the Repository (Blue Bloods Short Stories)
Release Date: May 25, 2010

Lavish parties. Passionate meetings in the night. Bone-chilling murders. Midterms. The day-to-day life of Schuyler Van Alen and her Blue Bloods friends (and enemies) is never boring. But there's oh-so-much more to know about these beautiful and powerful teens. Below the streets of Manhattan, within the walls of the Repository, exists a wealth of revealing information about the vampire elite that dates back before the Mayflower. In a series of short stories, journal entries, and never-before-seen letters, New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz gives her hungry fans the keys to the Repository and an even more in-depth look into the secret world of the Blue Bloods. Won't you come inside?
What are you waiting on this week?

Teaser Tuesday - December 22


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"Yes," said her grace candidly, "I think, my dear, that when you have the devil in you - which I perfectly understand - you are likely to forget everything."
He disengaged himself, and stood up. "My devil don't prompt me to marriage, maman," he said.

From Devil's Cub by Georgette Heyer

I'm enjoying this book a lot - the conversations are really witty.
