“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what we’re waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Author: Julie Kagawa
♡ Release Date: October 22, 2013 (North America)
♡ Publisher: Harlequin Teen
♡ Synopsis: IN THE REAL WORLD, WHEN YOU VANISH INTO THIN AIR FOR A WEEK, PEOPLE TEND TO NOTICE
After his unexpected journey into the lands of the fey, Ethan Chase just wants to get back to normal. Well, as “normal” as you can be when you see faeries every day of your life. Suddenly the former loner with the bad reputation has someone to try for-his girlfriend, Kenzie. Never mind that he’s forbidden to see her again.
But when your name is Ethan Chase and your sister is one of the most powerful faeries in the Nevernever, “normal” simply isn’t to be. For Ethan’s nephew, Keirran, is missing, and may be on the verge of doing something unthinkable in the name of saving his own love. Something that will fracture the human and faery worlds forever, and give rise to the dangerous fey known as the Forgotten. As Ethan’s and Keirran’s fates entwine and Keirran slips further into darkness, Ethan’s next choice may decide the fate of them all.
♡ Why?: More like, why not? I really liked “Iron Prince”, so I’m hoping that this next book in the second/sequel “Iron Fey” series delivers. Keirran was kinda creepy to me in book one, so I’m pretty curious as to what he’s going to do next. Ugh October, y u so far away? I need this book and soon.
♡ Author: Adrienne Kress
♡ Release Date: June 4, 2013
♡ Publisher: Diversion Books
♡ Synopsis: After six years of “angels” coming out of the sky and taking people from her town, 16-year-old Riley Carver has just about had it living with the constant fear. When one decides to terrorize her in her own backyard, it’s the final straw. She takes her mother’s shotgun and shoots the thing. So it’s dead. Or … not? In place of the creature she shot, is a guy. A really hot guy. A really hot alive and breathing guy. Oh, and he’s totally naked.
Not sure what to do, she drags his unconscious body to the tool shed and ties him up. After all, he’s an angel and they have tricks. When he regains consciousness she’s all set to interrogate him about why the angels come to her town, and how to get back her best friend (and almost boyfriend) Chris, who was taken the year before. But it turns out the naked guy in her shed is just as confused about everything as she is.
He thinks it’s 1956.
Set in the deep south, OUTCAST is a story of love, trust, and coming of age. It’s also a story about the supernatural, a girl with a strange sense of humor who’s got wicked aim, a greaser from the 50’s, and an army of misfits coming together for one purpose: To kick some serious angel ass.
♡ Why?: This book’s cover only just got revealed, but I loved Kress’s previous YA novel The Friday Society and this sounds like fun! A book is always more anticipated when it’s an upcoming release from an author you trust because you’ve read/loved their books already. Here’s hoping it rocks my socks off!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
