Waiting on Wednesday: Team Human



"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:


Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan
Publisher: HarperTEEN
Genre: Paranormal, Young Adult
Publication Date: 2012
Goodreads  /  LibraryThing - doesn't have it. Sorry!

A girl and a vampire fall madly in love... The girl's best friend is deeply unimpressed.


Why do I want to read this? Basically just because of the authors who wrote it. They're pretty awesome. But also, because I read Sarah Rees Brennan's explanation behind the book, where she said this:


Actually, we got the idea from NEW MOON. I will explain. Justine was at a showing of the movie NEW MOON, and we were chatting beforehand, and I said: 'Let me know how you enjoy my favourite part.' So when she returned...

JUSTINE: So what was your favourite part?
SARAH: When Bella's friend yells at her.
JUSTINE: When the heroine's friend yells at our depressed heroine? Sarah, I thought you were Team Bella!
SARAH: I am! Of course I am! Go Bella's agency and having whichever dude she pleases! But that scene just really reminded me of school, when your friend gets all wrapped up in this guy-
JUSTINE: Yes, and you don't think the guy is that great-
SARAH: Exactly, but he's suddenly always the topic of conversation, and you have all this friend jealousy-
JUSTINE: It's all part of the difficult untwining time of friendships when you're having first romances and you're like 'Hey, my friend and I aren't the same person. TURNS OUT.'
SARAH: Different needs! Who'd have thought.
JUSTINE: Someone should write that book. There need to be more friendship books.
SARAH: Yes! All about the girl whose best friend starts dating a vampire.
JUSTINE: We should write that book.
SARAH: We totally should.

...that idea totally rocks! And I just know the book will rock too. Can't wait to read it!

What are you waiting on?

  6. My first time seeing this book. But I'm definitely loving the reasoning behind the idea. The summary may not be enough to draw me in, but the addition of the reasoning certainly helped. Though, like you, the authors are also pretty fantastic, so I'd probably read this for them.

    If you like, stop by and check out my WoW.

  17. Great pick! This is a new one to me. It sounds really good!

  18. OK, at first, I was like, "Uh, another Twilight spoof?" But this actually sounds interesting. It probably would have been good without the Twilight reference, but this way they got a lot more publicity.
