Waiting on Wednesday

Wainting on Wednesday is a wekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: Crescendo
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon&Schuster
Release Date:: October 19, 2010
Summary: Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.
The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

I haven’t read Hush, Hush yet. Hopefully soon though :) Nice pick!

I'm looking forward to this one too even though I liked not loved Hush, Hush. Re: your question of whether Stephenie Meyer is stealing JK Rowling's idea for an encyclopedia...I don't think so. I think it's something a lot of fantasy authors have done. Scott Westerfeld did one for Uglies. Did Tolkien do one? I forget. I wish Rowling would get around to doing her encyclopedia. Thanks for dropping by my blog!
