Waiting on Wednesday: Team Human

Team Human
Authors: Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan
Publisher: HarperTeen
Expected Publication: July 3rd, 2012

Just because Mel lives in New Whitby, a city founded by vampires, doesn’t mean she knows any of the blood-drinking undead personally. They stay in their part of town; she says in hers. Until the day a vampire shows up at her high school. Worse yet, her best friend, Cathy, seems to be falling in love with him. It’s up to Mel to save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all eternity!

On top of trying to help Cathy (whether she wants it or not), Mel is investigating a mysterious disappearance for another friend and discovering the attractions of a certain vampire wannabe. Combine all this with a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and touching

My Thoughts:
So you may or may not know this but Sarah Rees Brennan is one of my author crushes. I absolutely loved The Demon's Lexicon series and Unspoken totally broke my heart and sucked me in. Needless to say when I heard that Brennan and Larbalestier were writing a Vampire parody I went crazy and started stalking this book. Now we are only about a month and a half away from publication and I am eagerly awaiting Team Human! If you have never read anything by Brennan I highly recommend you do so, her sharp wit and easy humor are not to be missed and I expect to see quite a bit of it in Team Human. 

So tell me, what are you waiting on this Wednesday?!


  1. I am excited about this one too! I love both of these authors.

    Reading Lark's WOW

  2. I haven't read either of these authors but I am so excited about the whole idea of a vampire parody, thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. I am looking forward to reading this one too Emily. I haven't read anything by Sarah Rees Brennan yet but I do have a copy of Unspoken to get to. She is Irish so I'm hoping to love her :)

  4. How did I not know this book was by two authors. I seriously never noticed that Sarah Rees Brennan was a part of this! I thought it was just by Larbalestier. #payingattentionfail

  5. A vampire parody? Sign me up!

  6. This seems a bit too cheezy for me, but still looks like it'll be a great read to others! I don't think I'll be reading it, but maybe once I see some reviews it'll change my mind. Hope youe enjoy it once you get it!
