This week's Waiting on Wednesday pick is:

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Publication Date: October 26, 2010

Here's the synopsis from

Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena’s family of powerful supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.

Sometimes life-ending.

Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan’s eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there’s no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town’s tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.

It sounds so good! I loved Beautiful Creatures, and the sequel is sure to be great!

Swords are for fighting,


  1. I am sure this book will be fantastic. Beautiful Creatures was an amazing book. I can't wait to read Beautiful Darkness too.

  2. You really should! It's my favorite book I read this year.

  3. I still have to read book 1, but I have it. I adore the cover for this! It's gorgeous.
