Waiting On Wednesday #1 / Giveaway at Hale & Salvatore Supernatural Must Reads

This is a weekly book meme, hosted by
which features future releases that we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!

After seeing this meme on other blogs, I decided
to jump on the bandwagon myself.
So here's my very first W.O.W. experience!

The book I'd like to feature today also 
happens to be
Now, I wasn't expecting to do this, but 
I'm actually combining
a book meme with a post about another 
blog's giveaway....

Well, anyhow, without further ado, 
here's the book!

Die For Me
Hardcover, 352 pages
Published: HarperTeen
May10, 2011
Reading Genre: Young Adult

Yes, I know....this book was released yesterday.
But I'm still eagerly anticipating it, 
since I don't own it yet!


The plot of this novel attracted me right away
because it combines my two greatest passions:
books and art.
The protagonist, Kate Mercier, is an orphan
who goes to Paris, France
to live with her grandparents.
She escapes into books and art in order to
deal with her pain and grief.
Then she meets Vincent, who is,
of course, devastatingly handsome and charming.
Did I mention that he's also mysterious?
No, he's not a vampire....but a revenant,
a strange being who is somehow immortal,  
and yet, is also fated to give his life to
save others, again and again....
Then, too, there's a war going on,
between the good and evil revenants,
and Kate, who falls in love with Vincent, may 
never be safe again...

Quote from Amazon's Product Description:

In this incandescent debut, newcomer Amy Plum has created a powerful paranormal mythology with immortal revenants. The Paris setting comes enchantingly alive as a relentless struggle between good and evil takes place in its streets. Rich with romance, atmosphere, and thrills, Die for Me will leave readers breathlessly awaiting its sequel.

I haven't ordered this book from Amazon yet
because I'm waiting to see if I can win it in the giveaway.
Sure hope I do!
If my luck holds (I've won four books in two other
blog giveaways so far this year), 
I will soon be able to welcome this book
onto my already overflowing living room couch!
(My bookshelves are full.)
If I don't get an e-mail from
Hale and Salvatore telling me that I've won
the book, I will order it 
from Amazon right away!!
