Waiting on Wednesday (10)

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. It's been awhile since the last time we're participating but I just spot on several titles that interest me and I just need to spread the words about it!

Lynossa WoWs:

Expected published date: 27th September 2011

Blurb (Goodreads):
 Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages—not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.
When one of the strangers—beautiful, haunted Akiva—fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

I've read many good review about this book and I almost pre-order it but then I decided I'll be patient and wait to see whether this is too heavy on romance or not.

Expected published date: January 2012.

I've read in goodreads someone posted this about the book: "You know you're a bestselling author when the font size used on the book cover for your name is larger than that used for the actual title." LOL that's so funny even though it's not the final cover. Anyway, I'm so excited about this I decided to pre-order it! Yep, this is actually the first pre-order I made, I never bought any book before it's published, especially without knowing what the story will be! I guess most of the time I wanted to see other people's opinion first before I spend my money. Well, I hope it's worth every penny of it!
ps: I heard John Green will sign all pre-order book. I hope his hand will be okay after that!
