Eyecatchers (a day late) and You Recommend Wednesday

Back again. :) I've found some more great eyecatchers this week, and yes once again I've stuck pretty close to the paranormal. I can't help it, it's what I love.

Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

The undead can really screw up your senior year . . .

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancĂ©. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

The Exorsistah by Claudia Mair Burney

She just wants a home, a hootie, and some kickin' boots.Does she realy have to fight the devil to get them?

After the creep who's married to her friend Kiki tries to assault her, Emme Vaughn finds herself in an all-night Walgreens at 3 a.m. with a quarter in her pocket and a rumble in her stomach. She sure does wish she'd gotten to eat her french fries before she had to kick and run. But God has his plan, and apparently tonight He means for her to whip some serious demon butt.

Ever since her mom went crazy, Emme's been wary of the gift they share for seeing demons, but she's not about to let one get to her. So when an ugly beast lurks into Walgreens behind a dude who's clearly up to no good, Emme tells it exactly where it can go. Problem is, the beautiful guy beside her at the magazine rack just helped her conquer the nasty duo, and now he wants her to join a group of demon-fighters led by his father, an aging exorcist bombarded by requests to deliver people from evil. Shoot, and all she really hoped for was some breakfast....
Now it's your turn. Tell me what has caught your eye recently. Tell me what you've read that you think I should read. Let's spread the word, and spread the love. :)

Hi Heather,

I do love YA books. Some of the best writers I know write them. I'm a huge Pendragon and Harry Potter fan. I worship the Mary Stewart Merlin Trilogy. MS's books always left me in the twixt between the child and adult world...maybe?

Although it was incredibly adult-like to me. And in MS's case, very sexy.

Anyway, thanks for the great post. Just wanted to say hello.
