Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.
Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.
Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.
I am waiting on this book because it just sounds interesting. Lightning isn’t something I like personally, but I do like the idea of this book. I can’t wait to get my hands on it 🙂
Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12)
by Charlaine Harris
Published: 1st May 2012 by Gollancz
With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.
I really enjoy reading about Sookie’s adventures, so of course I cannot wait to get my hands on this. I’m super excited to see what happens to Sookie next!!
Silence (The Queen of the Dead #1) (YA)
by Michelle Sagara

“It began in the graveyard. Ever since her boyfriend Nathan died in a tragic accident Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there—Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death….”
I love the cover of this book, and I think it sounds really interesting. I’m especially intrigued by the series title, so I cannot wait to get my hands on this.
The Next Always (The Inn at Boonsboro Trilogy Volume 1)
by Nora Roberts
Published: 3rd May 2012 by Piatkus
The historic hotel in BoonsBoro, Maryland, has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect of the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was fifteen…
I occasionally like reading Nora Roberts books, and this series caught my attention. I like reading series in order, which is quite handy as none of the books are out in the UK yet, but I cannot wait to get started 🙂
So those are the books I’m waiting on this week, what are you waiting on?

“Struck” sounds great! I hadn’t heard about it, so thanks for sharing 🙂 I’ll definitely get it when it comes out.
I like the sound of Struck – I love lightning, although I certainly wouldn’t want to be struck with it!
How do you like that cover for Deadlocked? It looks so different from the rest of the series, I didn’t even realize it was connected, until I read the description.
In the UK for some reason they’ve changed Sookie’s covers to look like that. They’re not really my cup of tea, and I don’t really think they work for the book.
You actually remind me that i have to continue reading TB books even that i have to say it is one of the rare times that i prefer the tv show instead. =)
You probably know already since we are following each other but Here is mine WoW
