Waiting on Wednesday (21)

Waiting On Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

This week I've chosen Eighth Grade Bites: The Chronicles of Vladimir Todd by Heather Brewer.  While this has been released elsewhere this will be released on the 28th July 2010 in Australia.


Vladimir Tod
Normal eighth-grade student?
Or powerful vampire?
If you thought eighth grade was tough, try it with fangs and a fear of garlic.
Junior high really stinks for thirteen-year-old Vladimir Tod. Bullies harass him, the principal is dogging him, and the girl he likes prefers his best friend. Oh, and Vlad has a secret. His mother was human, but his father was a vampire. With no idea of the extent of his powers and no one to teach him, Vlad struggles daily with blood cravings and enlarged fangs. When a strange substitute teacher begins to question him a little too closely, Vlad worries that his cover is about to be blown. And then he realises he's being hunted by a vampire killer, and suddenly hunger, girls and bullies seem not quite such a problem after all.

I've also picked The Thirteenth Chime by Emma Michaels. This will be released in the U.S on the 13th August 2010 (Friday)
No one knew of its existence until it was removed from the attic upstairs.

In a beautiful house that overlooks the sea, an antique clock has the power to change the course of their lives.

The power the clock resonates will not only force Destiny and ex-boyfriend David on a journey into the depths of one man's mind long dead, but into the mind of a man filled with hatred and bent on revenge.

With the only clues to the nature of the clock having disappeared into the sea, Destiny and David must retrace the steps the man had taken into the darkness, before they fall prey to the trap he had set in motion over half a century ago.

Hatred never dies.


  1. great picks :) both of them are on my to-read list as well :)

  2. Love the cover of the thirteenth chime plus it's sounds really interesting. I've been wanting to read Eighth Grade Bites for a while now (since I found it on one of my daily perusing of Goodreads trips) and now I can with an Aussie release date, yay!

  3. Great picks! I actually have Eighth Grade Bites in my classroom library. I've been meaning to read it- my students seem to like it!

  4. I have not read any of the Vladimir Tod books - are they good?

    As for The Thirteenth Chime, I was lucky to be able to read it early and OMG...soooooo good, I cant wait to see what you think!

  5. Im waiting for Emma's book too!!! and I have yet to read Vladmir Tod series, it does look cool though =))
