Waiting on Wednesday: The Tear Collector by Patrick Jones

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on. I have decided to participate because I have a list that can go on forever and ever and it is interesting to see what else others are "waiting" for also.

I love Vampire stories, it is one of my favorite paranormal genres. Yet, it has been played out in so many different ways....UNTIL I read about this upcoming novel The TEAR COLLECTOR by Patrick Jones. It sounds soo good. I am not sure if the cover is the offical one, but it is the one posted on the author's website located HERE


THE TEAR COLLECTOR by Patrick Jones
Reading level: Young Adult
Hardcover: 272 pages
Publisher: Walker Books for Young Readers (September 1, 2009)

Fans of urban fantasy should prepare for a new kind of vampire–one that feeds off of tears instead of blood. Descended from an ancient line of creatures that gain their energy from human tears, Cassandra Gray depends on human sorrow to live. Only Cass has grown tired of living this life and wants to live like a human, especially now that she's met someone worth fighting for.


Sounds good! and I want it now. I love all things Vampire and this different take on them is fresh, interesting and definitely has my attention. So, that is my WOW and what is yours?

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
