Waiting on Wednesday - The Furry Friends Edition

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for. For my WoWs, I'll be choosing a Sooner (books released in the next month or so) and a Later (books further out). Here's what I'm eagerly anticipating:

Sooner:

Spellbound
by Rachel Hawkins

Hitting shelves March 13th from Hyperion Books

description: (may be spoilers if you haven't read the first two!!)
Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?

My Thoughts: Ok, this may be the furry friends edition, but honestly, I have no idea why there is a cat on every cover of this series! :) But I love this series and all three covers, none the less. Daughter and I are both dying for this one...this is most likely one we'll be heading to the bookstore for the very day it comes out.


Later:
Silence
by Michelle Sagara

hitting shelves on May 1st from DAW

description:
It began in the graveyard. Ever since her boyfriend Nathan died in a tragic accident Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there—Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death….

My thoughts: This sounds like its made of awesome. Creepy graveyard? Creepy old woman who appears to be made of rags? Doggies?? I'm 100% sold. :)
