Distractive Obsessions #09

Distractive Obsessions are books that are going to be released very soon and that I'm dying to read - books that I know I'm going to be obsessed with until I'll finally hold them in my hands and read them.

This week's pick is DARKNESS BEFORE DAWN by J.A. London.
It's going to be published on May 29th, 2012 by HarperTeen.
ISBN: 9780062020659 | pre-order: The Book Depository / Amazon / B&N

Goodreads Summary:
This electrifying new trilogy blends the best of paranormal and dystopian storytelling in a world where the war is over. And the vampires won.

Humans huddle in their walled cities, supplying blood in exchange for safety. But not even that is guaranteed. Dawn has lost her entire family and now reluctantly serves as the delegate to Lord Valentine, the most powerful vampire for miles. It isn’t until she meets Victor, Valentine’s son, that she realizes not all vampires are monsters....

Darkness Before Dawn is a fresh new story with captivating characters, unexpected plot twists, a fascinating setting, and a compelling voice. Written under the name J. A. London by a talented mother-son team, the trilogy is perfect for fans of True Blood and the House of Night and Morganville Vampires series.

I can't believe that I haven't even pre-ordered Darkness Before Dawn even though I've been in love with the sound of it ever since I first read its synopsis. I love how the vampire genre is being combined with the dystopian genre lately - if this one is just a bit as good as The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa, I'm sure I'll like it!

Which book are you obsessing over at the moment?


  1. Probably INSURGENT. I have 2 copies of it (one is signed from Veronica Roth) and I can't wait to read them :)
