"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Waiting on Wednesday (27)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.

 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:

Balthazar by Claudia Gray
Release Date: March 6, 2012
Haunted by memories from his first days as a vampire, Balthazar has spent hundreds of years alone—without allies, without love. When he emerges from his isolation to help Skye Tierney, a human girl who once attended Evernight Academy, Balthazar has no idea how dangerous it will be. Skye’s psychic powers have caught the attention of Redgrave, the cruel master vampire responsible for murdering Balthazar and his family four centuries ago. Having learned of Skye’s powers and the remarkable effect her blood has on vampires, he plans to use her for his own evil purposes. As they stand together to fight the evil vampire, Balthazar realizes his lonely world could finally be changed by Skye...just as Redgrave realizes that he can destroy Balthazar once and for all by taking her for his own. 

In a story filled with forbidden love and dark suspense, one of the most beloved characters in Claudia Gray’s New York Times bestselling Evernight series will captivate readers with his battle to overcome his past and follow his heart.
Balthazar is one of my FAVORITE characters from the Evernight series.  I'm so happy he's getting his own book because I want to know all there is to know about him!  Luckily, readers can enjoy this book as a stand-alone, but I encourage you to read the Evernight series as those books are really good!


  1. Oh. I haven't read the series. It sounds very interesting. Great pick! Thank you for sharing! I always like books take place in academy or school. :)

    Books For All Seasons

  2. YAY! Great pick! I have only read Evernight so far but I LOVE BALTHAZAR!!! OMG Bianca is so dumb and should be with him not Lucas! But at least he gets his own story because he definitely deserves it!

    A Beautiful Madness

  5. I tried, I really did, try to like the Evernight books. I even really liked book one! But afterward I just got too... I don't know, but I didn't want to read the series anymore. Maybe one day I'll try it again. On the plus side, I do remember liking Balthazar from book one. Maybe I'll give the spin-off a go and go from there!

    Have an awesomepants reading week!
