Waiting on Wednesday (#8)


Every Wednesday is time for Waiting on Wednesday. It's a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every Wednesday we pick the books we cannot wait to read. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass' pick 



Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is only just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues as to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence—it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that Kira knows she is a part of, a plan that could save both races. Her allies are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?

Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what’s left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira’s journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and they will both discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn’t even know existed.

Tanja's pick


An Irish heritage, Celtic myth, and deadly  beauty 
In eighth grade, Brianna did something  so dreadful she was suspended and homeschooled.  No one could explain what happened  that night . . . except Brianna's Irish  grandmother, who gave her a silver charm  bracelet and told her to wear it until she  turned seventeen. Ever since she slipped  it on, Brianna has felt like she's invisible.  People stare right past her as if she doesn't  exist. And that includes Blake Williams, the  one boy she can't resist. 
But everything changes in one frozen, silver  moment when Blake sees her-and recognizes  what she's been hiding. Brianna is  descended from Danu, the legendary Bandia  of Celtic myth. Yet before she can fully  understand who or what she is, Brianna  accidentally binds her soul to Blake-whose  tribe has spent the last thousand years hunting  Danu's descendants to protect humanity.

We both picked

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.
His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
