Waiting on Wednesdays is a public weekly meme hosted by the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Thanks, Jill!

That basically means we get an ENTIRE day full of gushing over gorgeous book covers and all the reads that we're highly anticipating.

This week I am very, very excited about my pick.

Wicked Kiss (Nightwatchers, #2)
Michelle Rowen

I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.

Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....


When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...

Well, darlings, there are so many reasons I am anticipating this one.

First off, look at the cover. It's beautiful. Also, it's pink, which is a win no matter how you look at it. I adore it. The scarf is a bit odd, but it works. And the pose a bit too symmetrical. But still, I love it.

Dark Kiss was pure amazingness and I adored it, so of course I'm eagerly anticipating the sequel.

The one sounds SO good. I love how it keeps the tagline from the first book at the bottom, too. A nice touch.

I can't wait to see what happens in this book. I can't wait to see Bishop and Kraven again. And it seems like a new guy thrown into the mix probably can't hurt.

Seriously, after that ending…well. I can't wait to see more of what's coming, and hopefully the darkness and rebellion is explored more in this one!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
Link me up! :)


  1. I'm thinking the new guy is Kraven. There seemed to be something between them at the end of Dark Kiss and he IS part of the "team of angels and demons." Also, the only reason Sam's kiss harmed Bishop was because someone up high screwed up, so her kiss wouldn't hurt Kraven, right? Just like you, I can't wait!

  2. I still haven't read the first book but this seems like an interesting read. I'll check it out! :) Thanks for sharing.

    Here is my WoW post

  3. I'm super excited! I think Stamanah is right and I'm pretty sure Sam will be kissing Kraven to take away her urges lol Which will make for some craziness. I almost posted this one this week as well!
    My WOW

  4. This sounds great. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to check out this series.

  5. I have to admit, I didn't love the first one but, I am still curious about what is going to happen and I did love Kraven soo much so he might just be worth reading it lol. Great pick!
