Waiting On Wednesday (41)

Waiting On Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

Bad Taste In Boys by Carrie Harris.
Publisher: Delacorte Press.
Release Date: July 11, 2011.

Someone’s been a very bad zombie.

Super-smartie Kate Grable gets to play doctor, helping out her high school football team. Not only will the experience look good on her college apps, she gets to be thisclose to her quarterback crush, Aaron. Then something disturbing happens. Kate finds out that the coach has given the team steroids. Except . . . the vials she finds don’t exactly contain steroids. Whatever’s in them is turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless, flesh-eating . . . zombies.

Unless she finds an antidote, no one is safe. Not Aaron, not Kate’s brother, not her best friend . . . not even Kate . . .

It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.

Sounds awesome! Mixing zombies with high school without dolling and humanizing them up .. haven't really seen it done before, but I think it'll be awesome! And if you haven't checked out the author's (whom I'm meeting/having lunch with on Saturday!!) incredibly INCREDIBLE website, check it out here.

    Btw, since this is a waiting on wednesday post, I figured i'd recommend a book to you called "Angelfire" by Courtney Allison Moulton. It's coming out Feb. 2011
    Here's a synopsis,

    "When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.

    A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once.

    While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember."


  6. Nice pick, Katie! I'm really looking forward to this one (and you're having lunch with her? so cool!)

  7. I'm just finally crawling out from underneath edits and wanted to drop by and proclaim your awesomeness! Thanks for posting my cover!

    Lunch was too much fun. Can't wait to do it again sometime!
