Waiting on Wednesday (41)

Insatiable by Meg Cabot


Sick of vampires? So is Meena Harper.


But her boss is making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn’t believe in them.


Not that Meena isn’t familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you’re going to die (not that you’re going to believe her; no one ever does).


But not even Meena’s precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side . . . a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.


The problem is, he already is dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able look into her own.


And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.


Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future . . .


If she even has one. [summary from Goodreads]

There are a zillion reasons why I want to read this ASAP, but I will list here just a few.

A) I am unabashedly and eternally Team Vampire, and this actually sounds like a well-written vampire romance, something that will probably be a cut above the failed attempts to stray from some pretty basic vampire lore that makes vampires dangerous (they're dangerous. they're attractive. they're kind of not really good for you, but you can't stay away). Maybe even something along the lines of Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey? If so, it will be excellent.

B) That cover is simple, but smoking, and shows how even the black-background fad can still stand out and entice even after possible overusage.

C) It's written by Meg Cabot. That woman can do no wrong. This one sounds like it might share a few stylistic similarities with her Mediator series (paranormal - love Jesse, love Susannah) and Ransom My Heart (adult historical romance - loved the sexual tension).

The conclusion? Major anticipation.

Insatiable will be released in hardcover by William Morrow on June 1, 2010.

  5. Steph, we're officially fighting. How could you show me this new release from Cabot, my favorite author, get me all excited and freaking out because it's a new romance and it's got vampires and, I'm sure, plenty of delicious romantic tension...

    And then, much to my total dismay, tell me it's not out until next June? Six months from now, my friend. More than six months, actually.

    Whatever camaraderie that once existed between us is done. Done!

    Well, until I read your next review. Because you're awesome :)
