Can't wait to read

Another month. Another list of books I cannot wait for.

Asking for it by Louise O'Neill


I know nothing about this book. I want it purely because it is written by Louise.

Darkest Night by Will Hill
The brave men and women of Department 19 have fought Dracula at every turn, but now Zero Hour has passed and the ancient vampire is at full strength.  Inside Department 19, the Operators are exhausted and fractured. Jamie, Larissa, Matt and Kate are each struggling with their own demons. When the friends need each other most, they are further apart than ever.  Outside the Department, the world reels from the revelation that vampires are real. Violence and paranoia spread around the globe and, when it finally comes, Dracula’s opening move is more vicious than anyone could have imagined.  A final battle looms between the forces of darkness and the last, massed ranks of those who stand against it. A battle that will define the future of humanity. A battle that simply cannot be lost...

I love this series. There aren't many series that I actively still follow because I suck at series and waiting time between books unless they are awesome. I cannot wait to get my hands on this.

Lorali by Laura Dockrill



Colourful, raw, brave, rich and fantastical - this mermaid tale is not for the faint-hearted.

Looking after a naked girl he found washed up under Hastings pier isn't exactly how Rory had imagined spending his sixteenth birthday. But more surprising than finding her in the first place is discovering where she has come from.

Lorali is running not just from the sea, not just from her position as princess, but her entire destiny. Lorali has rejected life as a mermaid, and become human.

But along with Lorali's arrival, and the freak weather suddenly battering the coast, more strange visitors begin appearing in Rory's bemused Sussex town. With beautifully coiffed hair, sharp-collared shirts and a pirate ship shaped like a Tudor house, the Abelgare boys are a mystery all of their own. What are they really up to? Can Rory protect Lorali? And who from? And where does she really belong, anyway?

  
I love Laura Dockrill. She is literally one of the nicest people I think I have ever been fortunate enough to meet. I'll read anything she writes.

Fire Colour One by Jenny Valentine





A teenage girl will soon discover, there are some things which burn even brighter than fire. Iris’s father Ernest is at the end of his life. Her best friend Thurston seems like a distant memory to her. Her mother has declared war. She means to get her hands on Ernest’s priceless art collection so that she can afford to live the high life. But Ernest has other ideas.  There are things he wants Iris to know. Things he can tell her and things that must wait till he’s gone. What she does after that is up to her. 

It's been a long time since I've read a Jenny Valentine. I cannot wait to read this because I remember her books as being awesome.
