Waiting On Wednesday (16)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


Title: Sever

Author: Lauren DeStefano

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young

Release Date: February 12th 2013


Time is running out for Rhine in this conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Chemical Garden Trilogy.

With the clock ticking until the virus takes its toll, Rhine is desperate for answers. After enduring Vaughn’s worst, Rhine finds an unlikely ally in his brother, an eccentric inventor named Reed. She takes refuge in his dilapidated house, though the people she left behind refuse to stay in the past. While Gabriel haunts Rhine’s memories, Cecily is determined to be at Rhine’s side, even if Linden’s feelings are still caught between them.

Meanwhile, Rowan’s growing involvement in an underground resistance compels Rhine to reach him before he does something that cannot be undone. But what she discovers along the way has alarming implications for her future—and about the past her parents never had the chance to explain.

In this breathtaking conclusion to Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden trilogy, everything Rhine knows to be true will be irrevocably shattered.

IT’S THE FINAL BOOK! I cannot wait to see how Lauren DeStefano finishes the series. I actually have no idea what she has in store for us and that’s what makes me so excited for Sever!


Title: Pivot Point

Author: Kasie West

Publisher: HarperTeen

Release Date: February 12th 2013


Knowing the outcome doesn’t always make a choice easier . . .

Addison Coleman’s life is one big “What if?” As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It’s the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. When Addie’s parents ambush her with the news of their divorce, she has to pick who she wants to live with—her father, who is leaving the paranormal compound to live among the “Norms,” or her mother, who is staying in the life Addie has always known. Addie loves her life just as it is, so her answer should be easy. One Search six weeks into the future proves it’s not.

In one potential future, Addie is adjusting to life outside the Compound as the new girl in a Norm high school where she meets Trevor, a cute, sensitive artist who understands her. In the other path, Addie is being pursued by the hottest guy in school—but she never wanted to be a quarterback’s girlfriend. When Addie’s father is asked to consult on a murder in the Compound, she’s unwittingly drawn into a dangerous game that threatens everything she holds dear. With love and loss in both lives, it all comes down to which reality she’s willing to live through . . . and who she can’t live without.

Wow! OK, please say that you were just as blown away by that synopsis as I was! The concept of a Searcher is just insane and completely out-of-this-world! I cannot even begin to wrap my mind around being able to look into the future and find the outcomes of different choices. It would simply be amazing and troubling at the same time!


Title: The Gathering Dark

Author: Christine Johnson

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Release Date: February 12th 2013


A mysterious teen boy knows the secrets of Keira’s dangerous hallucinations in this gripping romantic fantasy from the author of Claire de Lune.Keira’s hallucinating. First it’s a door hovering above the road; then it’s a tree in her living room. But with her parents fighting and her best friend not speaking to her, Keira can’t tell anyone about her breakdown.

Until she meets Walker. They have an electric connection, and somehow he can see the same shadowy images plaguing Keira.

But trusting Walker may be more dangerous than Keira could have ever imagined. The more she confides in him, the more intense—and frightening—her visions become. Because Walker is not what he appears to be. And neither are her visions.

Woah! I am officially interested and creeped out by the synopsis. What is up with these visions?? And, Walker really gives me the creeps even though I haven’t even read this book yet. Plus, I really want to figure out what is up with Keira’s visions and Walker!


Title: Notes from Ghost Town

Author: Kate Ellison

Publisher: EgmontUSA

Release Date: February 12th 2013


They say first love never dies…

From critically acclaimed author Kate Ellison comes a heartbreaking mystery of mental illness, unspoken love, and murder. When sixteen-year-old artist Olivia Tithe is visited by the ghost of her first love, Lucas Stern, it’s only through scattered images and notes left behind that she can unravel the mystery of his death.

There’s a catch: Olivia has gone colorblind, and there’s a good chance she’s losing her mind completely–just like her mother did. How else to explain seeing (and falling in love all over again with) someone who isn’t really there?

With the murder trial looming just nine days away, Olivia must follow her heart to the truth, no matter how painful. It’s the only way she can save herself.

This sounds like an incredibly eerie and haunting story of a murder with a paranormal & psychological twist. I would think I was going crazy too, if I was getting notes from my dead boyfriend about his murder! Yikes! But, it definitely makes for an interesting story!

What books are you waiting on?
