Waiting on Wednesday: Lair of Dreams

Happy Wednesday!

We are getting closer and closer to the end of the school year! In my district there is only about 5 weeks left! It’s pretty amazing just how quickly this year has sped by…as cliche as that sounds.

I recently read The Diviners by Libba Bray and was completely and utterly entranced by it! Lair of Dreams by Libba BraySo, I’m trying to be patient, but I just can’t wait for book two in the series, Lair of Dreams, to release in 2015!

After a supernatural showdown with a serial killer, Evie O’Neill has outed herself as a Diviner. Now that the world knows of her ability to “read” objects, and therefore, read the past, she has become a media darling, earning the title, “America’s Sweetheart Seer.” But not everyone is so accepting of the Diviners’ abilities. Meanwhile, mysterious deaths have been turning up in the city, victims of an unknown sleeping sickness. Can the Diviners descend into the dreamworld and catch a killer?

Pretty much anything set in the 1920s will make me a happy reader, and I can’t wait to see where Evie’s story goes next! Too bad I have so long to wait!

Waiting on Wednesday: The Sound

Welcome back BookTasty friends!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week I am showcasing The Sound, and upcoming summer release by Sarah Alderson.

When aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying for a wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground The Sound by Sarah Aldersonfor Boston’s elite, she’s hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda.

What she doesn’t count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets, falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy, and falling out with a dangerous serial killer.

I saw this one on featured on another blog recently, and I was hooked! I want to read this book really bad. I love books set in high-class  summer vacation spots like Nantucket. There is something so mysterious about places like that already, then adding a serial killer?! YES!

But I am a little confused. Everywhere I check online says this book is a UK release (slated to come out on August 1) with no details on a US release.  Does anyone have any insight towards this? Will it be in bookstores here on the same date?

Are you waiting for The Sound today too?
