Waiting on Wednesday (46)

So how's your week so far, everyone? Wednesday's my favorite day of the week because it means Friday's just around the corner. :) Oh, and anyone here watching Switched at Birth? I love that series!

Anyway, I am featuring 2 books today, and as usual, if you haven't heard about it, add them to your Goodreads shelves!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Dark Angel (Dark Angel #1) by Eden Maguire
Release Date: August 4th 2011
Published by: Hodder Children's Books

Summary (from Goodreads):

Tania's heart belongs to Orlando. Nothing can rip them apart. Until the seduction begins in a flurry of glamour and magic, music and parties all orchestrated by the mysterious and mesmerising Zoran, an iconic rock star who has retired to a remote ranch in the nearby mountains. And there Tania meets the dark side. Can she resist temptation?

Why I'm waiting for Dark Angel:

I know the cover art is familiar (hint: The Vespertine) but even with the familiar looking cover, the summary is quite intriguing. Zoran sounds like a really bad guy (he destroys lovers and conquers souls) and I like reading about sinister (hot) guys and good trumping evil. This book sounds very promising, and I'm really looking forward to reading it.

Title: Notes from an Accidental Band Geek by Erin Dionne
Release Date: September 1st 2011
Published by: Dial

Summary (from Goodreads):

French horn virtuoso Elsie Wyatt resents having to join her high school's marching band playing a melliphone, but finally finds a sense of belonging that transcends the pressure she has always felt to be as good as her father, principal french horn player in the Boston Symphony Orchestra.Elsie Wyatt is a born French horn player, just like her father and her grandfather before her. In order to qualify for the prestigious summer music camp of her dreams, she must expand her musical horizons and join - gasp! - the marching band. There are no French horns in marching band (what the heck is a mellophone??), but there are some cute boys. And marching band is very different from orchestra: they march, they chant, they . . . cluck? Elsie is not so sure she'll survive, but the new friends she's making and the actual fun she's having will force her to question her dad's expectations and her own musical priorities.

Why I'm waiting for Notes from an Accidental Band Geek:

I suddenly thought of the movie Drumline and Nodame Cantabile (Japanese) while reading the summary. And what is a mellophone? I don't know anything about marching bands but this sounds like a pretty hilarious and fun novel.
