Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!
I can't wait for...
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan!
When a vampire shows up at Mel's high school, it's up to Mel to keep her best friend from falling in love with him. Add a mysterious disappearance, a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and poignant. (summary from Goodreads)
When I first heard about this one I just had to snicker. Especially considering the authors and their claims about how they came up with the idea, etc. I don't doubt it's going to be worth a lot of laughs and for that I'm really looking forward to it. There are quite a few comments about this over on it's Goodreads page, some where people seem to be taking it a little too seriously, which surprised me. Personally, I'm liking everything about it as it's all obviously in fun. Plus, having read some of the 'rewrites' Sarah Rees Brennan has done on her blog - like Teen Wolf & Jane Eyre, for example - which had me laughing until I cried, I can't help but be earger for this one!
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan is due out 3 July 2012.
