On My Wishlist #4

To tell you the truth, I've never really read anything under Young Adult category until the day I came across Twilight. Yes, you didn't hear me wrong there - T.w.i.l.i.g.h.t! So, my interest in this category is fairly new and I am actually amazed as how diverge this category really is. I would seriously missed out a lot if I didn't try any books in it. For this week, I am craving for yet another YA series known as The Drake Chronicles.

Book Title: My Love Lies Bleeding
Author: Alyxandra Harvey
Series: The Drake Chronicles #1
Pages: 256 pages
Genre: Paranormal
Book Description (taken from Book Depository):
The Blakes are rather different to your usual neighbours. They are vampires and some of the members of the family date back to the twelfth century. One of the children, Solange, is the only born female vampire known and, as such, she poses a direct threat to the vampire queen. Her best friend Lucy is human, and when Solange is kidnapped Lucy and Solange's brother, Nicholas, set out to save her. Lucy soon discovers that she would like to be more than just friends with Nicholas. But how does one go about dating a vampire? Meanwhile, Solange finds an unlikely ally in Kieran, a vampire slayer on the hunt for his father's killer.

Other Book in The Series:
Blood Feud (The Drake Chronicles #2) 

Covers Comparison:
(a) My Love Lies Bleeding (UK) vs Heart at Stake (US Title)
(b) Blood Feud (UK vs US)

Personally, I love the UK covers for both books but this is most probably because I adore anything with dark colours. Tell me which one is your personal favourite and if you have already read the books, perhaps you could tell me whether these are worth reading or not?


  1. I love the UK covers! The cover is what originally drew me to it in the bookstore. My Love Lies Bleeding is really good! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it & cannot wait for Blood Feud.

  2. I love the UK covers but I like the US ones as well, so really can't say which are better. (also you still have posted on Wednesdays in your blurb at the top - OMW is now posted every Saturday - you can find new blurb on my blog) :-) Have great weekend!

  3. I love the UK covers and this week I actually received My Love Lies Bleeding from an Aussie publisher so I can't wait to read it :-)
    Cover is even better in real life!

  4. I love the UK covers too. I haven't read either of these but they both look good :)

  5. i think i've heard about this book.great pick shy. at least you already help me to find another books to pile in my TBR list =p

  6. I like the US covers, they seem to fit together well! :)

  7. @BCC: Thanks for noticing my mistake over there. I copy/paste the stuff from the previous week, so forgot to change the details *lol*

    @Teddyree: Oooh, lucky you! Guess that I'd have to check out your reviews in few weeks to come =)

    @Nina: Perhaps I'll agree with you if I've read and know the gist of the book. Will have to wait until I got the chance to read it, hopefully soonish!

  8. There are tons of great YA books out there - much much more then when I was actually a young adult!
    I read Hearts and Stake and really enjoyed it - a new twist on many vampire stories out there.

    I do have to go with you on the cover - I like the UK ones better.

    Happy Reading!

  9. Wonderful wishlist! I personally like the UK covers more.

  10. Great book choices! I love your blog too! From the Saturday Network!

  11. I am 100% with you on the UK covers. Seems to happen a lot actually. The series sounds enticing think I may have to indulge.

  12. @WillowRaven: I totally agreed with you. But in my case, I believe that the wonderful books were there though I wasn't really exposed to them enough. Glad that I've got the chance now and if people ask me why am I reading YA/Children's books, I'd just say "Well, I'm just making up for the lost time!" ;)

  13. I've been meaning to read my copy. I love the UK covers a lot more. They don't look as, juvenile. I know these are YA, but it's terrible.

  14. UK in both cases :)

    PS LOVE the little border you placed on the books :) too cute :)

  15. Loving the UK cover as well.
    Anyway, great pick!

  16. I like the Heart at Stake better and the UK Blood Fued. Here's Mine

  17. Definitely with you on the UK covers on this one...they are more dramatic and eye-catching.
