Sneak A Peek Saturday: INIFINITE DAYS by Rebecca Maizel

It's Saturday and time for a Sneak Peek! A feature that allows you see a chapter or two of an upcoming book.

This weeks selection is INFINITE DAYS by Rebecca Maizel. The cover is simply gorgeous and the synopsis and excerpt are enough to whet my appetite besides the fact that I heard nothing but fabulous things about this unique Vampire novel.

Just click on the book cover and you can read a excerpt and then you will understand why I want to read this novel.


She longs to be like everybody else. But her history is written in blood...

Lenah Beaudonte is in many ways your average sixteen-year-old: the “new girl,” she struggles to fit in enough to survive at school, and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy captain of the lacrosse team. But her challenges are beyond what anyone could have expected. Lenah just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire turned human…

She’s just awakened from a century-long hibernation and each passing hour hears another tick of the time-bomb, counting down to the moment when her abandoned vampire coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping, and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as the passing moments allow. But, to do so, she must first answer the ominous questions at hand: Can an ex-vampire survive in a time and place so alien to her? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

Oh, this sounds so good. This is coming from a confirmed Vampire Diaries fanatic that is waiting for Tru Blood to come back on HBO.

OHHH Tell me about Tru Blood. I soo cannot wait for that to come back on the tube. Yet, in the meantime. A book like Infinite Days seems like the cure for the long wait.

at least this is a different sort of YA vampire novel; it sounds like it has a real sense of urgency

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.”
