Waiting On Wednesday (25)


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

Some Extra Information: I am SO sorry about the lack of quality posts and interaction! The first couple of weeks of school have been CRAZY and I’m trying to figure out how to balance school with sports and with blogging. For the next few weeks there won’t be much new content, but I’m working on coming up with some new material for you guys! Cannot wait to share my ideas!


Title: Endless Knight

Author: Kresley Cole

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Release Date:  October 1st 2013


In the second book of the Arcana Chronicles Evie has now fully come into her powers as the tarot Empress. And Jackson was there to see it all. In the aftermath of killing Arthur, the tarot Alchemist, Evie realizes that a war is brewing between the other teens that, following the apocalypse, have been given powers and its kill or be killed. 

Things get even more complicated when Evie meets Death, the mysterious, sexy Endless Knight. Somehow the Empress and Death share a romantic history – one that Evie can’t remember, but Death can’t forget. She is drawn to the Endless Knight, but is in love with Jack. Determined to discover why she’s been granted these powers, Evie struggles to accept her place in a prophecy that will either save the world, or completely destroy it.

I wasn’t expecting to love Poison Princess as much as I did and I’m so excited for its sequel! The entire time while I was reading book one I was sucked into the world of the Arcana Chronicles and I’ve been wanting to visit again ever since. It seems like things are heating up with a prophecy to fulfill and a boy to pick. Can’t wait to see what unfolds!


Title: Perfect Ruin

Author: Lauren DeStefano

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Release Date: October 1st 2013


On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan’s older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.

I had a love/hate relationship with The Chemical Garden Trilogy, but I’ve got to admit that Lauren DeStefano has such an unique, beautiful style of writing. Not only is the cover gorgeous, but the synopsis instantly drew me in. The world sounds like a one-of-a-kind idea which is so hard to read about these days and I just cannot wait to get a copy in my hands.


Title: Blackout

Author: Robison Wells

Publisher: Harper Teen

Release Date: October 1st 2013


Laura and Alec are trained terrorists.

Jack and Aubrey are high school students.

There was no reason for them to ever meet.

But now, a mysterious virus is spreading throughout America, infecting teenagers with impossible powers. And these four are about to find their lives intertwined in a complex web of deception, loyalty, and catastrophic danger—where one wrong choice could trigger an explosion that ends it all.

So, when I read this synopsis my train of thought kind of went like this: Oh, terrorists… Not good. *about to exit out of webpage* Wait… *moment of brilliance* That’s kind of like spies, right? *connection is made* I like spies, so that means… *ponders over thoughts* I’ll like this! Maybe… Hopefully! No joke that was my train of thought and that is why I think Blackout could possibly make for an interesting read.


Title: How to Love

Author: Katie Cotugno

Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Release Date: October 1st 2013


Before: Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: as natural as breathing, as endless as time. But he’s never seemed to notice that Reena even exists…until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated—and pregnant—Reena behind.

After: Almost three years have passed, and there’s a new love in Reena’s life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena’s gotten used to being without Sawyer, and she’s finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn’t want anything to do with him, though she’d be lying if she said Sawyer’s being back wasn’t stirring something in her. After everything that’s happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?

In this breathtaking debut, Katie Cotugno weaves together the story of one couple falling in love—twice.

Oh gosh, lately I’ve become a sucker for cute romance novels. This one sounds like it has potential for being a heart-wrenching read while at the same time stealing your heart and swooping you off your feet. Definitely cannot wait for How to Love.

What books are you waiting on?

    Great picks. I really like the sound of Black Out but I’m not sure of How To Love. Being left high and dry with a baby would be a point of no return for me.
