Waiting on...POISON PRINCESS by Kresley Cole

You'd think that, after my book bacchanal at BEA, my TBR shelves would be filled for a while. But, being a true bibliophile, I'm never satisfied and ALWAYS want MORE!! This ARC was passed out on Thursday but *sniffle* I had to go home and totally missed it. *sobs* I'm a huge fan of Kresley Cole's adult novels and am happy to see her turning her talents to a fabulous-sounding YA novel.

The cover's intriguing, just because of the color scheme (is brown the new black? This is the second brown cover I've seen on "hot" new books recently), but it doesn't really pop off the page. Maybe if the guy didn't have an annoying shirt on...oh, wait. That would be Cole's adult novels. Oops. I do like the font with the vines and swirls for the title, however.

YA Post-apocalyptic Paranormal
384 pages, hardcover
Expected publication: October 2, 2012
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers 

Sixteen-year-old Evie Greene thought her horrific apocalyptic hallucinations were a sign that she was slowly losing her mind. But when her visions come true, decimating the world around her and killing everyone she loves, Evie is forced to accept that she was seeing the future.

Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she turns to wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate, the gorgeous and dangerous Jackson Deveaux for help. As Jackson and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have got the same call and discover that Evie is not the only one with special powers. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and as the battle between good and evil intensifies, it is not always clear who is on which side…
