This week I'm waiting on....
The Golden Lily
by: Richelle Mead
Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students—children of the wealthy and powerful—carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.
Why I want it:
I am a hardcore fan of the Vampire Academy series, and I honestly had my doubts about Bloodlines. I wasn't a fan of Adrian (he was a threat to my #1 ship, Rose and Dimitri) and Sydney was a forgettable character, IMO. But when I finally delved into the much-lauded spinoff series, I was deliciously surprised. I think I could easily love this series as much as I did Vampire Academy.
*The Golden Lily will be released by Razorbill on 6.19.12*
