WOW: Wake unto Me, Shimmer, Night Star

This is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we talk about the books we are dying to read.

I have 3 picks this week. First of all, I am eagerly awaiting the UK edition of Night Star by Alyson Noël and the second book in the Riley series, Glimmer. I met the author a few days ago, as you probably know from my blog, and got the chance to talk a lot with her. And that made me anticipate her books even more. I am always like that, books get a new dimension for me when I have met the author and know more about the books and the work that the author has put down in them. And I love this series.

Night Star continues the epic love story that has enchanted readers across the world. In this installment, Ever and Damen face down bitter rivals, jealous friends and their own worst fears—all in the hope of being together forever. Night Star is guaranteed to mesmerize fans and leave them breathlessly awaiting the sixth and final book!

I am also awaiting the release of Wake unto Me, by Lisa Cach. I have already preordered the book.

A haunted castle, a handsome young man dead for four hundred years, one heck of a scary portrait of a witch, and a treasure hunt -- not to mention a princess for a roommate! -- all await 15 year old American girl Caitlyn Monahan when she earns a scholarship to a French boarding school.
There are secrets behind the stone walls of Chateau de la Fortune, buried for centuries along with the mystery of who killed Raphael, the charming ghost who visits Caitlyn at night. But as Caitlyn unearths the history of the castle, nothing scares her as badly as the secret she learns about herself, and the reason she was chosen to come to the Fortune School. And nothing breaks her heart as badly as falling in love with a dead guy.

What are your picks this week?

Sadly, I'm not an Alyson Noel fan, but Wake Unto Me sounds super interesting and the cover is really spooky!
I'm waiting for Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. It comes out in late May though, so I have a long wait!
