Waiting on Wednesday - 80

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to find out about new books.

Because It Is My Blood by Gabrielle Zevin

Since her release from Liberty Children's Facility, Anya Balanchine is determined to follow the straight and narrow. Unfortunately, her criminal record is making it hard for her to do that. No high school wants her with a gun possession charge on her rap sheet. Plus, all the people in her life have moved on: Natty has skipped two grades at Holy Trinity, Scarlet and Gable seem closer than ever, and even Win is in a new relationship. But when old friends return demanding that certain debts be paid, Anya is thrown right back into the criminal world that she had been determined to escape. It’s a journey that will take her across the ocean and straight into the heart of the birthplace of chocolate where her resolve--and her heart--will be tested as never before. (from GoodReads)
I really enjoyed the first novel in this series, All These Things I've Done, so I'm excited to read this! I also like how both titles together form a sentence. That's pretty cool! Because It Is My Blood will be released September 18, 2012.

I almost ordered the first one of this series but then hesitated because I noticed that, well, it's a series. *g* I can't stand to always have to wait for sequels!

I hadn't heard of this series before, and it does sound intriguing. I also like how the author made the titles of both book form a sentence!
