Waiting on Wednesday (62)

Heya, everyone! How are you this week? It's only Wednesday but I'm stressed beyond belief. *sigh* I hope you all have a better week than I do!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: The Alchemy of Forever (Incarnation #1) by Avery Williams
Release Date: January 3rd 2012
Published by: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Want? Add to your Goodreads shelf!
Summary (from Goodreads):

People say ‘love never dies’… but love might be the death of Seraphina. Seraphina has been alive since the Middle Ages, when her boyfriend, Cyrus, managed to perfect a method of alchemy that lets them swap bodies with any human being. Sera ran away from Cyrus years ago, when she realized that what they were doing—taking the lives of innocent people—was wrong. She doesn’t want to die, so she finds young people who are on the brink of death, and inhabits their bodies. When we meet Sera, she has landed in the body of a girl named Kailey who was about to die in a car accident. For the first time, Sera falls in love with the life of the person she’s inhabiting. Sera also falls for the boy next door, Noah. And soon it’s clear the feelings are returned. Unfortunately, she can never kiss Noah, because for her to touch lips with a human would mean the human’s death. And she has even more to worry about: Cyrus is chasing her, and if she stays in one place for long, she puts herself—and the people she’s grown to care for—in danger.

Why I'm waiting for The Alchemy of Forever*:

Who wouldn't? I've always been interested in reading books with stories revolving around re-incarnation. There's something awfully romantic about reading of two people who seem to find their way to each other regardless of place and time. But this one sounds way more complicated. She can't kiss the boy she likes, and she falls in love with the life she took away. Isn't that interesting? It somehow reminds me of Juliet Immortal. Sera and Cyrus, two people who should be in love, are in a deadly cat and mouse chase.

*Note: Simon & Schuster says this is not yet the final cover, but I think it's really pretty! I wouldn't mind if it is the cover. :)

Title: Night School by Christi Daugherty
Release Date: January 2012
Published by: ATOM
Want? Add to your Goodreads shelf!
Summary (from Goodreads):

Sometimes school is murder.

Allie Sheridan's world is falling apart. She hates her school. Her brother has run away from home. And she's just been arrested.

Again.

This time her parents have finally had enough. They cut her off from her friends and send her away to a boarding school for problem teenagers.

But Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. Its rules are strangely archaic. It allows no computers or phones. Its students are an odd mixture of the gifted, the tough and the privileged. And then there's the secretive Night School, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch.

When Allie is attacked one night the incident sets off a chain of events leading to the violent death of a girl at the summer ball. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, Allie must learn who she can trust. And what's really going on at Cimmeria Academy.

Why I'm waiting for Night School:

When I first saw the cover, I thought 'Entangled'? I think it's the red hair. It's somewhat a bit like Vampire Knight, with the student population divided between the Night School and the Day classes. I will hold off my judgment and not say that this is about vampires.But I'm really curious to know what's in Cimmeria Academy. Anyone have any idea what it is?

  6. Do you read Anime ? I think the first book sounds a little bit like Full Metal Alchemist. Also, I must watch Vampire Knight one of these days but, I'm to busy reading !
