My WoW Pick

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine

I have not one but TWO picks this week!

Both have gorgeous covers and great titles - don't you think?

Drink, Slay, Love

Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

Available: Septmeber 13, 2011
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry

Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire... fond of blood, allergic to sunlight, and mostly evil... until the night a sparkly unicorn stabs her through the heart with his horn. Oops.

Her family thinks she was attacked by a vampire hunter (because, obviously, unicorns don't exist), and they're shocked she survived. They're even more shocked when Pearl discovers she can now withstand the sun. But they quickly find a way to make use of her new talent. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl's family to host his feast. If Pearl enrolls in high school, she can make lots of human friends and lure them to the King's feast -- as the entrees.

The only problem? Pearl's starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends—especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache—to be slaughtered? Then again, she's definitely dead if she lets down her family. What's a sunlight-loving vamp to do?

**Sparkly unicorns? Vampires? Cute guys? I'm in!

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber

Available: October 2011

Ferris Bueller meets La Femme Nikita in this funny, action-packed young adult novel.

It’s prom night—and Perry just wants to stick to his own plan and finally play a much anticipated gig with his band in the Big Apple. But when his mother makes him take Gobija Zaksauskas—their quiet, geeky Lithuanian exchange student—to the prom, he never expects that his ordinary high school guy life will soon turn on its head. Perry finds that Gobi is on a mission, and Perry has no other choice but to go along for a reckless ride through Manhattan’s concrete grid with a trained assassin in Dad’s red Jag.

Infused with capers, car chases, heists, hits, henchmen, and even a bear fight, this story mixes romance, comedy, and tragedy in a true teen coming-of-age adventure—and it’s not over until it’s “au revoir.”

**Does it sound like Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick would make a great movie? Paramount seems to think so too since this they have already snapped up the movie rights.
This sounds like a fun one.
