Waiting On Wednesday (40): Death and The Girl Next Door

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you have a chance to let other know what you can’t wait to claim as your own. 

by Darynda Jones 
Expected publication: October 2nd 2012 by St. Martin's Press

From the author of The New York Times bestselling series that began with First Grave on the Right—a thrilling Young Adult novel garnering high praise and early buzz from major authors. 

Ten years ago, Lorelei's parents disappeared without a trace. Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home. For Lorelei, life goes on. 

High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be. Until the day the school's designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school. Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity. What does Jared know about her parents? Why does Cameron tell Jared he can't have Lorelei? And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real? 

Thrilling, sassy, sexy, and inventive, Darynda Jones's first foray into the world of teens will leave readers eager for the next installment.
Why I need this: So I have yet to read her other series, but I have had my eye on it for the longest time. I really don’t know why I haven’t gotten to it, it's all about death and fun!!! It's right up my alley!!! And this one I have had my eyes on for THE longest time also!! And I mean I can smell the love triangle but I kinda want it!!! Maybe I have been reading too many non-triangle romances lately (not that I mind) but I'm in the mood to have my heart torn in two between two super hot guys! Also this title just makes me giggle!!! It also helps to have some hotties on the cover!! Also this has some mystery in it that I just need!!!!

What are you waiting on?
