Waiting on Wednesday (#64)


You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass' pick

Meet Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure-skater from Washington, D.C., who choked during junior nationals and isn’t sure she’s ready for a comeback. What she does know is that she’d give anything to escape the mass of misery that is her life.

Now meet Sloane Devon Jacobs, a spunky ice hockey player from Philly who’s been suspended from her team for too many aggressive hip checks. Her punishment? Hockey camp, now, when she’s playing the worst she’s ever played. If she messes up? Her life will be over.

When the two Sloanes meet by chance in Montreal and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she’s the lucky one: no strangers to judge or laugh at Sloane Emily, no scouts expecting Sloane Devon to be a hero. But it didn’t occur to Sloane E. that while avoiding sequins and axels she might meet a hockey hottie—and Sloane D. never expected to run into a familiar (and very good-looking) face from home. It’s not long before the Sloanes discover that convincing people you’re someone else might be more difficult than being yourself.


Expected publication: January 7th, 2014

Tanja's pick

Gather ‘round, love, because I want you. I want what you have, I want what you don’t have, I want more of what I already have. I want. But if you so much as ask for something in return, go ahead and walk away. Know if you want to play in my world, it’s every man for themselves and the weak become mine. Leeches will be obliterated because I make it my job to destroy them. I protect what’s mine and I take what’s yours…because that’s what I do. I want.

My story will not endear me to you and, frankly, I could care less if it does because I’m in this for the money and nothing else. There’s nothing redeeming about me. I’m a corrupt, money hungry, immoral asshole from Los Angeles. I’m every man’s worst nightmare and every girl’s fantasy.

I’m Spencer Blackwell…And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most coveted guy to the guy no one wanted around and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.


Expected publication: October 29th, 2013

We'd love to see your picks so feel free to link them up.

Until the next time,

  6. Based on the cover my first thought was you two mixed up your wows. That sexy 6pack looks more like something that Glass would pick. LOL
    I haven't heard about any of these books before but they sound interesting. And I definitely plan to read 'Meant to be' so 'Being Sloane Jacobs' is probably going to end up as my wow then. :)
    Check out what I am waiting for this Wednesday...

    2. That's the best tactics - act innocent and blame Glass. ;)

      Izbriši
    3. Oh, shut it, hun.:*
      Dragana, don't let her fool you - she still has my whip and she doesn't want to give it back.:DDD

      Izbriši
    4. I'm waiting for you to come as that whip will be used against you :DD
      Dragana it works ;)

  16. Greed definitely sounds different. I'm sort of curious about it now. Being Sloane Jacobs makes reminds me of The Parent Trap or Model Behavior with a Cutting Edge twist. I'm not sure I'll read it though.

    1. Okay, is all that excitement because of cover or the book? I don't know what is going on today.:D It's usually me who posts cover with naked men here.:DDD

  19. So excited for Being Sloane Jacobs! That one is definitely on my "must-have" list for next year! And I'm absolutely fascinated by the premise of Greed. Spencer sounds like such a challenge and I definitely want to see if she writes him with any redeemable qualities, or if we're meant to dislike him all the way through:)

  29. Oh, I'm sorry you didn't get approval for Sloane on Netgalley. :( That's a bummer. I'm waiting for it too, though, so you're not alone! Great pick, Glass! I don't think Greed is the type of book that I'd read, but good gracious, I could stare at that cover alllllll day long! ;)

  31. I am so, so excited for Being Sloane Jacobs! The premise sounds like a Disney Original Movie. So instantly, I'm freaking out over it. I love the parent-trap premise!

    I haven't read Vain, but I really like the cover redesigns for the series, and Greed looks really good as well.

    1. Thanks :) I cannot wait to read them either :))

      Izbriši
  33. I loved Meant to Be so I can't wait for Lauren's new one, Glass. Kind of sounds like The Cutting Edge, a movie I loved!

    I want to read Vain so much, I just need to put in on the schedule (the only way I can read books lately *sigh*)!

    Great picks Glass and Tanja! :)

    1. I really have to read Meant to Be! :) LOL Agreed schedule is the only way sometimes :) Thanks :)

      Izbriši
  34. YES!!!!! I'm ying to read both these books especially Greed that's coming out in few weeks. I loved Vain so much and I have no ides what's going to happen in Greed! The wait is killing me! As for Being Sloane Jacobs, I can't no to it. Meant to be was one of my favorite contemp's last year and anything by Lauren Morill is a definite yes from my side. The sad thing is that Netgalley is taking millions years to accept my request. What is taking so long? (<-- That was a bit dramatic! lol)
    Awesome picks guys!
