Waiting on Wednesday- Strange Fate-L.J. Smith

Waiting on Wednesday (2)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating.

Vampires, werewolves, witches, shapeshifters -- they live among us without our knowledge. Night World is their secret society, a secret society with very strict rules. And falling in love breaks all the laws of the Night World.

Sarah Strange's life was what you might call ordinary. Then her mother died.

Now Sarah has visions -- visions of a place where dragons darken the sky and a young girl is fighting to survive.

When Sarah confides in her best friends, Mal and Kierlan, about the devastation in her dreams, she discovers that her friends are not what they seem. They are part of the Night World -- and they believe Sarah has a special role in their world. And if Sarah's visions are any indication of the impending danger and destruction, there is no time to lose....(taken from Good Reads)

Expected publication: February 1st 2014 by Simon Pulse

So, this is a book that I am a little bitter about. Me and about a million other people. I have been waiting for this book for so long, that I honestly forget about it for a couple of months and check in to always see that is was pushed back another year. This book was supposed to be published about a decade ago, and then no one heard from L.J. Smith for awhile. Granted she was ill. Finally, Stephanie Meyer hits it big with the Twilight series, so then Smith's publishing company decides to republish all of her books with different covers and formats. Good deal. I was working hard to find them, but that made it easy for me. Please keep in mind that i have been a L.J. Smith reader since the late nineties. Yeah. This book was supposed to be published in 2010, 2011, and now it has finally been pushed back to 2014. Do I think we will ever get this? Sadly, no. She has been writing so many add on books to the Vampire Diaries series now that the t.v. show has taken off. Ug.


  1. Yeah, I can't wait to get my hands on this. If you have not read anything by L.J. Smith I suggest you do. At least her early stuff like her Nightworld series, Vampire Diaries series (first 4), the Darkvisions series, and my fav her Forbidden Games series.
