Waiting on Wednesday #7



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
It gives us the chance to talk about not-yet-released books that we're dying to read.
This week I'm waiting on...
Love Sucks
Love Sucks by Sage Collins
Release Date: April 27th 2012

Mailee Jones is about to answer the age old question: "How much love would a love sucker suck if a love sucker fell in love?"

Mailee is a Haustrix, an otherwise normal girl with a demon gene that causes her to consume love from any human she touches. Afraid of draining anyone completely, she's been leading an isolated life, relying on Eric, a hunky lust-draining Haustor and the only person she can safely touch. She's content to avoid humans for all but the quickest possible hand-brushes with the dreaded cheerleaders to keep from starving.

Until she meets Logan, a diabetic who is the first human to understand Mailee's anguish over her diet. But growing close to him means risking his love for her. Mailee's convinced it's time to do something--anything--to become human. But the only antidote requires her to release and be systematically infected by demons representing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. Sloth and Pride? Okay, fine, but sins like Wrath and Envy aren't so easy, as proven when possessed-Mailee punches the cheerleader who's making eyes at Eric. Can she honestly get through all the sins?

Not to mention this new issue--is she interested in Eric instead? Because if she turns human, she'll lose him. Forever.

A girl with a demon gene that makes her suck the love from everyone she touches? Um, yes, please! And, hahaha, she chooses to suck the love from the not-so-nice cheerleaders! 
OK, so my guess is that Mailee will realize that she actually loves Eric and that he's loved her all her life. And I'm hoping that the lust infection will at least cause a kiss to happen between Mailee and Eric :D. I have got to read this book. It comes out in two days! *Does the cabbage patch

Thomas & JanuaryThomas & January by Fisher Amelie
Release Date: ? 2012
Thomas Eriksson thinks he has it all figured out.  

"People crossed the street when they saw me. I’m not really sure why that was. I mean, okay, I might have looked a bit intimidating if I was being truthful with you. I’d changed since New York. New York represented a life that wasn’t real, not truthfully anyway. No, New York was the young, immature, in love, idiot side of Tom. The ‘Tie-Dye Tom of New York City’ didn’t exist anymore. Tie-Dye Tom was dead."

January Mac Lochlainn thinks she’s her own worst enemy.

"I quit Berkeley. Threw away a full scholarship. Plans, you ask? What plans?"

But they’re both wrong.

***

Tom approached me slowly and met me under the light on the stone walkway. He leaned over me so closely, my neck craned to see his face. His expression was one of confusion as he studied my own.

“What is it about you?” He asked me.

“What do you mean?” I whispered, closing my eyes and swallowing, my breaths becoming labored.

He lifted his hand and dragged the backs of his fingers across the line of my jaw so lightly I barely felt them but they made me feel dizzy all the same.

“How can you be this extraordinary, January Mac Lochlainn?” He leaned closer, a look of pure frustration and anger lit his eyes. He pressed his lips together. “And why couldn’t I have met you before I realized I didn’t want anyone...ever?”

Life for Thomas and January will never be the same again...whether they like it or not.

OK, so you might have noticed that this doesn't actually have a release date yet. The author promised that it will come out 'soonish' and according to Goodreads it'll come out in 2012. But I just couldn't help myself, I'm dying to read this! Who cares if it doesn't have a release date yet. It's coming out! That's what matters. Now, this is the sequel to Callum & Harper. And let let me just say, I loved that book! It was such a sweet love story, with a little tragedy, sadness and suspense thrown in. It was just so beautiful. (Which reminds me, I still have to post my review. So watch out for that.) I didn't even know this was going to be a series, when I read Callum & Harper. And Thomas & January is about Tie-Dye Tom! He was one of Callum and Harper's friends. But I wonder what happened to him. It sounds like he hit rock bottom. I could've sworn he was in love with someone in the first one or am I thinking about someone else? Man, I need to re-read Callum & Harper before this one comes out. Oh and isn't that cover just absolutely, wonderfully, amazingly, breathtakingly stunning? It's even more beautiful than the first one. I just love the colors.  And the cute polaroid picture. And the tree in the suitcase. And  the hea-*sigh...I just love everything about it. I think it's so colorful because Thomas is/ was Tie-Dye Tom.

 If you want to read the first chapter of Thomas & January you can find it here
