Waiting on Wednesday


I missed WoW last week, so this week i'm doublin' up! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine! Head on over there to find out more about this awesome weekly meme!

This week i'm waiting on:

If I Die (Soul Screamers, #5)


No one wants to be this teacher’s pet . . .

Everyone else is talking about Eastlake High’s gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck, but Kaylee Cavanaugh has bigger things on her mind. Kaylee’s a banshee—her scream is a portent of death.

But the next scream might hit too close to home. Kaylee’s borrowed lifeline has almost run out.

Yeah—it’s a shock to her, too. So to distract herself from her own problems, Kaylee is determined to defend her school against the latest supernatural threat. That hot new teacher is really an incubus, who feeds from the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend’s delinquent ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren’t quite human either.

But Kaylee’s running out of time, and those who love her will do anything to save her life.

Soul Screamers: The last thing you hear before you die.~Goodreads
This series is crazy good! I'm so glad I picked it up & so glad there will be two more books after this one! The characters and storyline are absolutely amazing, intense and scary! Each book in this series has left me on the edge of my seat for the next one! And there are two hot brothers soo...‘nuff said! Be on the look out for this book in September! And if you haven't read any of the previous books, get on it! You have plenty of time to catch up! 

RippleLexi is cursed with a dark secret. Each day she goes to school like a normal teenager, and each night she must swim, or the pain will be unbearable. She is a siren - a deadly mermaid destined to lure men to their watery deaths. After a terrible tragedy, Lexi shut herself off from the world, vowing to protect the ones she loves. But she soon finds herself caught between a new boy at school who may have the power to melt her icy exterior, and a handsome water spirit who says he can break Lexi's curse if she gives up everything else. Lexi is faced with the hardest decision she’s ever had to make: the life she's always longed for - or the love she can't live without?~Goodreads
 First, this cover is gorgeous & the title is just plain awesome, Ripple. Go ahead, say it aloud to yourself a couple of times, Ripple…Ripple, Ripple. Yep it’s bomb! & it’s about a “deadly mermaid”!! I love mermaids & had NO idea they were ever considered “mean” or “evil” or “deadly” until I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. I was like, “WHAAAA?? Th-those mermaids are SCARY and n-n-not nice??! Where the eff is Ariel!?” So I am VERY interested to see how this story plays out! Plus two possible boys to add to my ever-growing fictional BF list! I am SO IN!!!:P
Look for this one, out in July!
