Waiting on Wednesday (2)


This week I'm waiting for......

The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)
The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2) by Richelle Mead
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives. 

Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist. 

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age-old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her. 

When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she’s supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she’s been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her. 

Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

I am DESPERATE to read this! I absolutely loved  Bloodlines and CAN NOT wait to read this beauty. I have requested an ARC, hopefully they'll send me one! Don't you guys just love the cover? It's very pretty. 

I want to read more about ADRIAN! Come on, guys! You all know who Adrian is, right? He is amazing and funny and handsome and awesome and hot, and, and, have I said he's amazing? . If you haven't read the Vampire Academy series or Bloodlines, then go buy them right now!

What are you waiting for?

  1. YES YES YES YES YES!! :D I can't wait for this to be released :D

  2. I haven't gotten to the first one yet (I do have it) but I love Richelle Mead so I'm positive it will rock!!
    My WoW

  3. WOW!! Great Pick, I also can't wait for this book :)

  4. I FINALLY read Bloodlines a few weeks ago, and now I can't WAIT to read the golden lily!!

  5. I've had this one on my wishlist since I first saw the cover and read the blurb. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

  6. I absolutely love the Vampire Academy series! At first I was skeptical about Bloodlines, especially since it was being told from the POV of Sydney. Then I read it, and all my doubts faded into nothingness (is that a word?). For one, I absolutely adore Adrian, and it's interesting to see Rose and Dimitri from somebody else's POV. At the end of Bloodlines there's an OMG moment that makes you curse that the Golden Lily is only coming out in June. Still 68 days to go.... :C
    Good luck, I hope you manage to get your hands on an ARC! :D

  7. I can't wait to read this book!The first one was amazing..and now i'm counting the day until this one.

  8. I love the Vampire Academy series :) and I can't wait to read this book
