Waiting on Wednesday! YA Books Galore!

Two of my most favorite adult romance authors are branching out and releasing some YA books! Gena Showalter has previously written YA books but Rachel Vincent is a noobie! Her adult books can easily be enjoyed by YA readers as they aren't too steamy on the sex scenes but they are very graphic in other areas.

Rachel Vincent's upcoming YA release is My Soul to Take (Soul Screamer, Book 1)which is a series already written and ready to release with a total of three books I think .

My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers, Book 1)

The back cover flap:

Something is wrong with Kaylee Cavanaugh. She doesn't see dead people, but....

She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee know who'll be next....
This sounds very interesting. And it sounds so different than what Rachel as written in the past. I can't wait to read it!

And isn't that cover just gorgeous!? Love the cover.

My Soul to Take is set to release on August 1, 2009.

Pre-order it from!

Gena Showalter's upcoming title is Intertwined.

Back cover flap:
Aden's image was burned into her mind.
He had black hair with inch-long blond roots. A face as perfect as the Grecian statues she'd seen in her world history textbook, even with the grime. For the briefest of moments, when a beam of sunlight had hit him, she could have sworn his eyes were striped with green, brown, blue and gold. But then the ray had disappeared and the colors melted into each other, leaving only an intense black.

The colors didn't matter, though. Those eyes were feral, wild, and she'd felt that undeniable shock that had ended as quickly as it had befun, for one second seeming to hook her to a generator, jolting her, unnerving her.

Even hurting her.
And here he was again...

How amazing does that sound!?! The cover is kinda freaky but I'm guessing the whole book might be that way too!

Intertwined is due to release Sept. 1, 2009.

Pre-order it from!

Will you be joining me with these books? Have you read either author before? Let me know!


  1. My Soul to Take looks really good!

  2. I'm waiting for "Intertwined" too.
    I haven't heard of "My soul to take" before but it sure looks good and the cover is pretty!

  3. That's the first time I've seen the My Soul to Take cover. I am very relieved that it doesn't have a shirtless hunk on it ;)

  4. Intertwined sounds fabulous. Both of the books you mentioned are on my TBR list. I just finished the last 2 books in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series. I like the VA series better than the House of Night series (PC & Kristin Cast). I haven't read Evernight (is that the right title??) yet but plan to since you liked it. My local Wal-mart had one copy and since I didn't snatch it immediately, someone else did. Urgh. I was low on cash at the time.

    I am very into YA right now. I am looking forward to Kim Harrison's Once Dead, Twice Shy coming in May and I'm hoping my library gets City of Glass (mortal instruments) so I don't have to buy it. I'm going to donate the VA academy books to the library since they have the first book and I have the 2nd and 3rd.

  5. Both of those books look SO good. Must haves!!!

  6. That's very generous of you Leigh Ann!

    I'll need to check out the VA series. They probably are not available for the Kindle, hence the reason I haven't read them!

  7. They both look great, especially My Soul to Take!

  8. I have yet to read either author but I'll definitely be joining you in reading these two books! And I do love the cover for Rachel's book 8)

  9. I haven't read either author, but I love when authors venture into YA. Both of these looks good.

  10. I am soooooo excited for My Soul To Take. I love Rachel Vincent!
