Waiting on Wednesday: Demonglass, Desires of the Dead and Delirium

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week I'm waiting for a couple of books from different series.

Title: Demonglass
Author: Rachel Hawkins 
Publisher: Hyperion Books CH
Date of Release: March 1, 2011

Goodreads Description: Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch. That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth. Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers. But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

Why am I waiting? I loved Hex Hall and Hawkins' writing, which is why I can't wait to read more about Sophie's adventures as well as her relationship with Archer.  

Title: Desires of the Dead 
Author: Kimberly Derting 
Publisher: HarperTeen 
Date of Release: February 15, 2011 

Goodreads Description: When Violet Ambrose's morbid ability to sense the echoes of those who've been murdered leads her to the body of a young boy, she draws the attention of the FBI. She is reluctantly pulled into an investigation that will endanger more than just her secret ... but her relationship and possibly her life as well.

Why am I waiting? Besides the unique plot, Jay and Violet are a great couple so it'll be fun reading more about their relationship.  

Title: Delirium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: HarperTeen
Date of Release: February 1, 2011

Goodreads Description: Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love - the deliria - blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

Why am I waiting? Before I Fall was my favourite read of 2010 and with so many bloggers being delirious about Delirium, I'm really looking forward to reading it myself.


  1. I can't wait for Demonglass. I absolutely loved Hex Hall and can't wait to see where the story goes next.

  2. I want all of these but I need to read the first books first- and I will this year!

    My WOW

  3. Those are great choices !! I haven't read the first book of Hex Hall but I've heard good things about it !! I've The Body Finder sitting on my shelves since ... a long time !! And Delirium is at the top of my To Buy List ;)

  4. Delirium sounds really good.
    It's high up on my to-read list.

  5. I have Hex Hall still sitting in my TBR pile. I need to read faster.

    Here's my WOW pick.

  6. All three of these are great reads. I loved Demonglass even better than Hex Hall, which was a lot, and Delirium was amazing. Great picks!

  8. Great picks, these are all amazing books I'm really looking forward to reading too! =)

  9. Oooh...all of these! I think I'm most looking forward to Demonglass.

  11. Um, a huge YES to all 3 of these! I can't wait for Demonglass, I adored Hex Hall and have so many questions I want answered! I just finished The Body Finder, so I'm looking forward to Desires of the Dead, and I love, love, loved Delirium. Great picks all around Zahida!

    here's mine

  13. I'm looking forward to all of these (although I did find the Body Finder pretty creeeepy!) Hex Hall was so much fun, want to see where it goes in Demonglass :D

  14. I'm dying to read Demon Glass! I loved Hex Hall so much :o) I'm looking forward to reading Delirium too! I picked up a copy of Before I Fall from the library the other day. Hopefully I'll read it soon and when I do, expect a very tearful email from me :oP

  15. I so need to read Hex Hall, cause I really wanna read Demonglass! Excellent WoW picks!

    Come see my new "Fine Fridays" pick...I think it's as pretty as these covers!

  16. I've been waiting on Delirium to arrive! Hopefully soon! I've been anxious to read it. I have Desires of the Dead and will hopefully be able to start it in a few days. Have to get through a couple other books first, but looking forward to it! Never read Hex Hall...

  17. All three are great picks!!!

    Great picks! Before I Fall was one of my favorite reads of 2010 too, I can't wait until Delirium is released. :D

  19. You read my mind with your WOW. I am coveting these books as well. I just figured out that Delirium comes out 2/1, and I'm putting aside the money to go buy it. :)

    This question is from a couple of days ago when we were chatting about Sarah Dessen, but how do you email back? Through the GFC? Perhaps a dumb question, but I was super amazed. I liked it. :)

    I added those two other Sarah Dessen books to my library list, as I'm headed to the library today. I have several Elizabeth Scott books on my TBR pile in Goodreads, but I'm gunna check them out and see if I get lucky at the library. If she's anything like Sarah Dessen, I'm excited. :)


I love comments and will reply back via either email or stopping by your blog. Please note that this is an award-free zone.
