Waiting on Wednesday: The Golden Lily

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

This week my Waiting on Wednesday is

Title: The Golden Lily
Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Bloodlines #2
Expected Publication: June 19, 2012

The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy spinoff series.
Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students—children of the wealthy and powerful—carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead’s breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.(copied from Goodreads)

I really loved the Vampire Academy series, and I did like Bloodlines except for the body image issues. I am hoping this maybe corrected in the second book, and with the ending of Bloodlines, I just have to read this one. I have to know what happens!!

I enjoyed the VA series, but haven't started Bloodlines. I think it's because I was disappointed with how some things developed in the last VA.

Bloodlines was a bit of a disappointing read for me, especially after how brilliant I thought Vampire Academy was. Still, I'm sure many people will enjoy this book, but I can't say I will choose to read it. :)

Great pick! I agree, VA is one of the best series! Bloodlines was good, but I had the same issue w/the body image scenes. Plus, Sydney is just too serious most of the time. Adrian was s big sad-sack fir a lot of the book, but really stepped it up towards the end. And yeah, w/who showed up in the last scene, (squee!) I must read this book!
Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my blog!
