Waiting for Wednesday
This meme is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and lets you know which books we are just desperate to get hold of.
This week, because I've just devoured and loved Shiver (review soon) I of course wanted to write about Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater - the book I now want to get my hands on more than anything else. Sigh.
Product description: In this mesmerizing sequel to Lament, music prodigy James Morgan and his best friend, Deirdre, join a private conservatory for musicians. James' musical talent attracts Nuala, a soul-snatching faerie muse who fosters and feeds on the creative energies of exceptional humans until they die. Composing beautiful music together unexpectedly leads to mutual admiration and love. Haunted by fiery visions of death, James realizes that Deirdre and Nuala are being hunted by the Fey and plunges into a soul-scorching battle with the Queen of the Fey to save their lives.
Sigh. So hard to wait. What are you waiting for?
